    After installing that version, I'm getting crazy high latency. Sometimes 300ms to ping to my router. I was able to get it back to a decent level ~ 30ms by disabling the MIMO power save mode in the driver. But my other laptop with a 9260 card and the same version driver averages <2ms to ping to my router.

    EDIT. My lag time was due to having InSSIDer running at the same time. Once I stopped it, my ping times were ~2ms.

    Thinking about grabbing a couple of these for my Alienwares.

    Not trying to get AX speeds right now but Im sure at some point I will get an AX router and it would be nice to have it already installed in my laptops. So far these are working for you guys?

    We just got the RAX40 to replace our R6400 that decided to keep resetting itself constantly. Haven't got the ax wifi cards yet. But just on ac this is much more stable then our R6400 ever was.

    Ashlander,lots of good luck with the new RAX40.

    I believe the router has an Intel chip so please keep up informed on how things are going.

    After logging in to routerlogin.net frequently check for new firmware.

    Do you plan on getting a Killer AX1650 or an Intel AX200 wireless card to pair with the RAX40 router?

    My two will be arriving today. Can't install it in the ranger until the mpcie to m.2 adapter arrives in the mail,but can install into my r3

    EDIT:

    Currently installed in the R3, seems to work just fine. Using a basic Archer C50 AC router and signal throughput goes between 180Mbps to 866.7Mbps which is fine. Its set on the other end of the house through 3 walls and a door no direct line of sight.

    More than likely going to get the Intel AX200/201. Not sure when, but on my list of upgrades. Pretty happy with it so far. No issues at all yet. More than I can say for the R6400 we've used for the last 3 years and the R6300 we RMA'd before that.
