    As per thread title, has anyone managed to get the AX200 working on a 32 bit version of Windoze 10? Would love to replace my Asus PCE-AC88U with an AX200 PCI card (eg TP Link TX3000E) as, I have a 802.11ax router but the only thing holding me back is that 32 bits OS isn't supported, only Windoze 10 64 bit.
    Cheers

    Why are you using a 32bits OS?

    Because some progs don't work properly in x64, mainly Geomatics related stuff. So is there any way to make AX200 cards work in 32 bit os?

    As far as I know there are no 32b OS drivers.

    Maybe virtualize those older programs in a 32b VM and run native 64b OS.

    32bit and the ancient NTFS file system should have been killed off years ago and 128 bit developed and deployed.
    There must still be money to be made.Why else is it still here?

    Ok have finally upgraded to Windows 10 Pro x64.

    Have ordered a TP Link TX3000E wifi card (AX200) to fit inside my desktop. This will replace an Asus PCE-AC88U. The Asus card gives me around 40 MB/s in transfer speeds over wifi 5, I hope I get an improvement with an AX200 card over wifi 6. My router is Netgear RAX200.

    40MB/s or 40Mb, because if you are only getting 40Mb thats due to either bad position of antennas or due to excessive walls/objects and overall distance between the pc and the router and another wifi card wont make it magically be fixed.

    What do you use instead of NTFS for Windows?
