The best one out there is Intel AX200, comes with WiFi6 (3000Mbps) & BT5.0. I got mine from AliExpress, not available locally. Works flawlessly, great range and speed, no hiccups in connection to WiFi or BT devices, supports all the latest BT Audio interfaces.

Intel makes and sells these themselves but first party cards are expensive, out of all the third party AX200 cards Fenvi is most reputable, pick one that fits your needs https://fenvi.aliexpress.com/store/...5963.html?spm=a2g0o.detail.0.0.28b26710PCCDAT

All cards have the same AX200 card on it, just the difference in adapter board and antennae.

USB cards are trash, it can't supply enough power or bandwidth to higher-end cards. get PCIe card IMO.

Exactly USB based Bluetooth adapters are Trash.. bad latency, continuous disconnection, bugs, BOD, crashes.. USB Bluetooth Adapters are all piece of shit, I hate and can't understand why this fake Chinese knock-offs Bluetooth are so common in Pakistan.. That's why i turned to PG forum for help.. I want really good Bluetooth 5.0 performance for my Desktop Gaming PC.

The AX200 originally is made for laptops. These card that Intel makes and then third party manufacturers like Fenvi make under license from Intel, all have the same Intel's AX200 chip on them. These cards are in 2 form factors (size & pin layout), either a NGFF or a Half-mini. These are basically made for laptops. Older laptops have Half-mini PCIe slot and newer laptops have NGFF (Next Generation Form Factor) PCIe slot. In order to adapt these laptop cards to Desktop PCIe slot, Intel as well as third party manufacturers also make Desktop versions by making a adapter PCIe card with NGFF slot on it.

The reason why there are different versions of the AX200 card that Fenvi offers is coz of difference in Antennae according to user requirement. Some cards have 2dbi, some have 5dbi, 7 10 & 12dbi antenna, some cards have antennae attached to the PCIe card, so it would be behind the PC, hidden but will offer less range, some cards have portable antennae that you can put on top of PC, depends on what your requirement is, what your Home WiFi signal strength is at your PC location, or what range you want from PC to your peripherals.

I have the FV-AX3000Pro which is an AX200 card on good heatsinks and portable 6dbi antenna set, https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005001305120915.html

Ok I am also ordering FV-AX3000Pro.. tell me how much time they take to ship your purchased product to your home? Also what would be the final price when it will finally reach to my home.. my budget for wifi card is upto 15k.. So I just wanna know.. because I know that Aliexpress rates are just converted rates.. What will be final price of this card when it will be shipped to me?
Thank you for help!

It costs $35.99 + shipping $2.94, Banks pay AliExpress on Interbank Exchange rate, today its 1 USD = Rs.166 so it'll cost you Rs.6463/-. You can also change the AliExpress prices to be displayed in PKR if you select Ship to = Pakistan and Currency = PKR at top right of page, it will show you actual PKR prices that AliExpress will charge you.

Fenvi ships these cards to Pakistan from their Singapore warehouse for shortest delivery, takes around 3 weeks to 6 weeks from Singapore to Pakistan, depending on number of flights. I did not get charged any custom duty on this when I recieved it. People ask sellers to write it as gift or lower value, mine had full value on it and no customs duty. Mine did get stuck at IMO (International Mail Office) Karachi for few days and I had to open complaint on Pakistan Citizen Portal, so watch the tracking if it gets stuck somewhere in Pakistan.

    Even though Sony says you can't refund some DLC type items once bought even by mistake, I once bought UC4 coins for the wrong region and asked Sony to refund and they refunded me...
