Check for Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) Technology

In just 3 simple steps, you can verify if a PC has the latest Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) technology before you buy to ensure you get faster Gigabit wireless speeds, support for 160 MHz channel bandwidth and WPA3, higher capacity, lower latency1, and next-gen security2. Without Wi-Fi 6 capabilities, your next device will suffer from outdated wireless connectivity leading to years ...of frustration before you upgrade again. Wi-Fi 6 is designed for the rapid growth of connected devices, streaming services, and high-bandwidth demands of today’s home wireless networks and is the biggest advancement to Wi-Fi technology since Wi-Fi 4 in 2009. While older Wi-Fi technologies were contention-based, letting devices connect on a first-come-first-served basis, Wi-Fi 6 traffic is efficiently managed by the router for faster speeds, greater reliability, and more responsive interactions for wireless gaming, entertainment, and video streaming.

How to check for Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) technology:

  • Press and hold the “Windows” key and the “X” key on the keyboard.
  • Press the “M” key to select the Device Manager.
  • Expand the “Network Adapters” item and look for “Intel® Wi-Fi 6” and “160 MHz” to know you are getting the latest wireless connectivity solution.

WPA3 Wi-Fi 安全功能:Wi-Fi Alliance 行业联盟将认证 Wi-Fi 6 产品是否符合 IEEE 802.11ax 标准,并将 WPA3 安全认证作为先决条件,以确保采用最新的 Wi-Fi 安全功能。WPA3 简化密码:WPA3 使用 Simultaneous Authentication of Equals (SAE) 替换 WPA2 使用的预共享密钥 (PSK) 交换协议。SAE 更安全地处理初始密钥交换并使用正向保密,从而更能抵御脱机解密攻击,并提供更强的基于密码的身份验证。WPA3 增强保护:额外的网络保护来自于 802.11ax 网络中相当于 192 位的加密强度,优于 WPA2 中使用的 128 位 AES 加密。
