    Unhappy ROG STRIX G15 wifi problems

    So it's been 4 months of me putting up with the horrendous ping issues and constant disconnections in games and apps like discord with this MT7921 wifi card. I have tried about all the drivers in myasus and none have solved these problems. At this point I haven't played any online games due to this.
    I'm thinking of buying the Ax210 intel card to replace it, is this card compatible? And is this replacement under warranty? Any help is kindly appreciated.

    Intel AX210ONGW - NGFF (M.2) is what I used on my FA506IU - AL130T Laptop's (Tuff Laptop with AMD 4800h and GPU 1660ti), without checking suggest this is what you're after. Due diligence is on you and you should check your laptop M.2 wifi specification match your intended wifi card prior to purchase and/or watch on YouTube tear-down videos.

    Any correct M.2 wifi card works in ASUS laptops there is no whitelist (like in dell or others) in the BIOS. Once you have right one, replaced the old wifi card with your new one and pop antenna's on, close her back up and can use Intel Driver assistant for latest drivers. Windows 11 and later versions of 10 have default drivers for the AX210.

    Kudos to your reply and suggestion. So I wanted to give the card a second chance and decided to send in my laptop for a repair. As to my dismay, yes there are still connection issues. Better? Yes, but unacceptable because driving a car with mad engine hiccups is dangerous same with ONLINE comp games with connection issues. They swapped out the card for a new but the same mediatek model, even wiped out everything to factory settings (on my permission). Experienced my first blue screen as well after the repair.. So I see no other solution than to burn this knock-off card for an intel one. Wish me luck!
