Intel AX200 Gig+ Wi-Fi 6 Desktop Kit on ULTRA M.2slot?


I have a question,
would the Intel AX200 Gig+ Wi-Fi 6 Desktop Kit work on an ULTRA M.2 slot?
I have a sata SSD plugged in into a normal m.2 slot but it won't work on an ultra M.2 slot.
I was thinking about getting the Intel AX200 Gig+ Wi-Fi 6 Desktop Kit, but I don't know if it will work.

Does anyone know if I can use this on an Ultra M.2 slot?

Thanks in advance.

No, you cannot use either of these sockets. These are M.2 Type M or M.2 Type B+M sockets and you need a M.2 Type E socket for the WiFi cards.

When you need to get is a kit that provides the PCIe carrier card, the AX200/AX210 Wireless card and antennas. Here are some examples:

AX200 WiFi 6 Kit: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07X462KRK

AX210 WiFi 6e kit: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B081ZKTFN2

Now, these examples are full kits that utilize Intel silicon, but they do not use the Intel-branded AX200/AX210 card products. They are essentially identical to the Intel-branded cards - and even use the Intel driver packages - but they are simply not the Intel-branded cards. If this makes you uncomfortable, we can find the separate parts that allow you to build a solution with an Intel-branded card. Here's the necessary pieces: 

Intel-branded AX200 card: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07V9N9XVJ

Intel-branded AX210 card: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09P1B55JQ

Carrier card and Antennas: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0882Z3MKL

Again, these are all examples for demonstration. I do not endorse any of these manufacturers or sources for the Intel WiFi cards.

Hope this helps though,


P.S. This picture is essentially what you get in the Intel Desktop Kits:


Obviously, it is not useful if you do not have a motherboard that has a M.2 Type E socket on it.


Thank you so much, I've learned something new again : )
