    Not necessarily with any new technology full implementation of standards takes time and lots of testing, plus there can be changes in the standards to account for bugs and so forth, which would require significant changes.

    The old saying here is quite true when one buys new technology that is cutting edge be careful to not to cut yourself. New tech is typically expensive and after a few spinoffs and redos it settles down..

    I'd wait until ax is in many mainstream laptops and ax routers have come down in price. ax wifi cards for laptops should be available, usable and not cutting edge prices as well if going that way.

    Hardware works best when it's set up correctly and the hardware is selected to work optimally together.
    An AX200 wireless card paired with a final draft AX router is IMO a way to go if you're needing an upgrade from previous generations and have the money to spend.
    IF you still have G or N hardware,maybe it's near that time to stop complaining and bite the bullet
    Your Internet speeds may not improve if your slow service is not upgraded.
    You can always wait for what's just around the corner or just get what you need when it's available and within your budget.
    There's nothing wrong with an Intel 9260/K1550 paired with an R7800 but....

    Starlight5 Yes, I'm a cat. What else is there to say, really?

    The big question is how will 9260 interact with AX router. Will it be able to utilize 160MHz channels for 1733MHz bandwidth, or not?

    Anyone with Intel 9260/9560 and a fancy new 802.11ax router to check? (=

    I believe Aivxtla is testing a Netgear RAX80 with his Intel 9260.

    I’ve had no issues with HT160 in the 9260ac even with “ax mode” enabled (pointless to use ax mode since no ax cards are out yet, but useful to test backwards compatibility) on the router as HT160 is also part of the ac spec anyway as seen in the R7800. Some older cards such as the 7260ac had issues when “ax mode” was enabled regardless of HT160 or HT80 in the router in general where they wouldn’t connect until a recent driver update from Intel.
