Upgrade Your WiFi to 6E

WiFi 6E means WiFi 6 extended to the 6 GHz band, a newly-opened frequency band that adds more bandwidth, faster speeds, and lower latency. This opens up resources for future innovations in AR/VR, 8K streaming, and more.

  • Minimized Congestion

  • Wider Lanes for Faster Speeds

    6GHZ has a wider band than 5GHz
  • Improved Capacity with More Spectrum

    More Spectrum

Unstoppable Speeds up to 5.4 Gbps

MA86XE arms your PC with Wi-Fi 6E technology and the brand-new 6 GHz band, unlocking your Wi-Fi 6E router's full potential. Experience the unblocked network on the exclusive band to Wi-Fi 6E devices, which prevents drops in speed and interference from legacy devices.†‡

Super Fast WiFi Reception

By combining OFDMA and MU-MIMO, MA86XE brings your PC’s WiFi reception to the next level. This ensures the efficiency of your PC’s WiFi connection by allowing more devices to communicate with your router simultaneously, rather than waiting in turn for data.

Maximum wireless signal rates are the physical rates derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual wireless data throughput and wireless coverage, and number of connected devices are not guaranteed and will vary as a result of network conditions, AP limitations, and environmental factors, including building materials, obstacles, volume and density of traffic, and AP location.

Use of Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), Wi-Fi 6E, and features including OFDMA, MU-MIMO, 1024-QAM, or HE160 require APs to also support the corresponding features. 160 MHz channels may not be all available in the 5GHz or 6 GHz band in some regions/countries due to regulatory restrictions.

Functionality of MA86XE may be restricted on some computing systems and platforms. Please try to update the device‘s driver for feature compatibility.

§Based on IEEE 802.11ax specification Intel Engineering simulation. 160 MHz channels and Wi-Fi 6/6E technology advantages related to network managed traffic enable lower latencies, more efficient operation, and higher reliability vs. random contention-based traffic of standard Wi-Fi 5 networks. Intel and the Intel logo are trademarks of Intel Corporation or its subsidiaries in the U.S. and/or other countries.

* "Up to 75% lower latency" is based on Intel simulation data of 802.11ax with and without OFDMA using 9 clients. Average latency without OFDMA is 36 ms, with OFDMA average latency is reduced to 7.6 ms. Latency improvement requires that the AP and all clients support OFDMA.

**Use of WPA3 requires APs to also support the corresponding feature.

***Several new features are introduced in the Bluetooth Core Specification 5.0 and 5.2 Release, including 2× faster speed and 4× broader coverage compared with Bluetooth 4.2.

*Maximum wireless signal rates are the physical rates derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual wireless data throughput and wireless coverage are not guaranteed and will vary as a result of 1) environmental factors, including building materials, physical objects, and obstacles, 2) network conditions, including local interference, volume and density of traffic, product location, network complexity, and network overhead, and 3) AP limitations, including rated performance, location, connection quality, and AP condition. *To ensure compatibility, you may need to update the adapter’s drivers after an OS update.

Actual network speed may be limited by the rate of the product's Ethernet WAN or LAN port, the rate supported by the network cable, Internet service provider factors and other environmental conditions.
