Hi ---

My gaming PC has an ASUS TUF X570-Plus MoBo with wireless:
https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/TUF-GAMING-X570-PLUS-WI-FI/

Unfortunately, the wireless is a bit slow I would like to know if I have the option to upgrade my wireless connection. For example, would it be a problem to install a wireless card into the PCIe slot and disable the integrated wireless? And, are there other options I should consider?

My OS is Windows 10.

Update: I installed the antennae on the back and it works perfectly now. I also heard back from one of your moderators in networking that I can upgrade to another card should I choose to do so in the future. Thanks for all your help!!!

By the way, that motherboard has an Intel AC-9260 card in it, which is pretty solidly mid-market (2x2 AC Wave 2), so you will need to look for a fairly high-end card if you want to do better.

A reasonable upgrade would be a 3x3 or 4x4 card (probably marketed as AC1900 (3x3) or AC3100 (4x4)) with remote antennas (antennas separate from the card).
