Hi guys, i have the new GT-BE98 router with 6GHz wifi enabled.

My pc has the Gigabyte WIFI7 module and is 4m away from router with clear line of sight.

This is wifi status in win11:

A normal ax card will show 2402 Mbps.  I am showing around 4800 Mbps on an Intel system 6 feet from the router.

I does depend on several factors.   If you have a BE98 and not a Pro version, you may be restricted due to only one of the 6 GHz bands are enabled.

Also, Windows can show bad numbers, look for the transfer rates in the router.
