    @DeeX yea I did exactly that. I followed what killer said to do on their website. I didn’t pull my antennas off but I reseated my card.

    @SacraficeMyGoat no I don’t get any errors. It just randomly kicks me off. It did it one time when I was in the control center and the card info disappeared like the card was removed but the it starts to reconnect again. It’s weird and it pisses me off.

    AX200 is still a PCIe based card. The only reliable way to fix this (at least for me) is to switch to an M.2 CNVi based card e.g., Intel 9560ngw or Intel AX201 (I haven't tested compatibility of the latter one so not saying it's compatible, but it should most likely be. I'll test mine as soon as I receive it and update here). Right now I am running a 9560ngw and it has not dropped connection in over 2 weeks (my laptop never shuts down).

    Does a M.2 CNVi based card go in the same slot?

    Yes. The same slot is compatible with M.2 based CNVi cards as well.

    I have a question :)
    This is not first time I spotted that all of ye use Revo Uninstaller and then a CCleaner for clean the registry , mine question is is not better use just the CCleaner to uninstall it and then clean the registry instead of use Revo for uninstalling and then CCleaner for clean the registry ?
    Is there a big different vs Revo uninstaller vs CCleaner uninstaller please ?
    I try google it but can’t find a much different at all , is look like booth do the job great way :)
    Thanks if anyone can confirm it or corrected me .

    Regards
    Scorpik

    Revo does a more detailed uninstall as compared to CCleaner. Personally, I'd not use either of them and cleanse the registry manually but I can't recommend that method to anyone.

    CCleaner just uninstalls the program, just like you would normally uninstall it from the Control Panel > Programs & Features

    Revo Uninstaller, Geek Uninstaller, and the likes, scan for registry and file remnants after you've uninstalled a program and gives you the option to delete those remnants.

    Don't blindly clean all the remnants because sometimes especially with driver uninstallers, those kind of programs would remove files / registry entries pertaining to other drivers (ie. Alienware programs would remove a lot of anything with the name Alienware in it so you don't want to blindly clean stuff without verifying what it's removing)
