     927=== Intel 802.11AX cards (iwlwifi) ===

     929Gateworks has recently validated [https://www.alfa.com.tw/products/awpcie-ax200u?variant=36473965805640 Alfa AWPCIE-AX200U] a cost effective (half size) mPCI-e form factor card.  The AX200U supports WI-FI6 (IEEE 802.11AX) in 2.4 and 5ghz modes and has integrated BT5, it is also backward compatible with IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac.   This card uses both a PCI-e 1x lane and USB 2.0 for BT.  The AX200 chipset this card is based on was developed by Intel. Intel reports a thermal rating from 0C to 80C.  Please see the [https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/189347/intel-wi-fi-6-ax200-gig.html Intel ARK] page for more details.

     931Linux support is provided by the [https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers/iwlwifi iwlwifi] driver, which is included in the mainline kernel source.  The compatibility with Gateworks prebuilt Ubuntu images is plug and play.  A limitation of this driver is AP's can only be hosted at 2.4GHZ.  This driver does provide support for station (client) at 5ghz or 2.4ghz, P2P, Monitor, and IBSS.  The chipset is also capable of packet injection which makes it an excellent option for use with the Aircrack-ng suite and [https://www.kali.org/docs/arm/gateworks-ventana/ Kali Linux] which is available from Offensive Security for the Ventana and Newport platforms.

     933The AX200U is one of the fastest low cost wi-fi cards we have validated to date, below are the results of real world type iperf3 tests using a WI-FI6 capable Netgear (WAX204) wireless router.
