Saw this the other day while browsing the Amazon...


Useful if one cannot drop in an Intel-based adapter - Windows only, no Mac, Linux support at the moment...

2*2:2 20/40/80 MHz, USB3.0, MediaTek based - Win11 gets you to the 6 GHz band with current drivers, Win10 is presently limited to WiFi6 (not 6e)

Boost the performance of your PC with an instant WiFi upgrade to the latest tri-band WiFi 6E technology. Enjoy faster and more reliable WiFi for ultimate 4K/8K streaming, smooth video conferences, & online gaming.

  • New WiFi 6E enables blazing-fast speeds & more reliable connections.
  • Easy setup using the USB 2.0 or 3.0 port on your Windows® 10 & 11 PCs. Note: For connecting to the 6GHz WiFi band, Microsoft Windows 11 is required. Microsoft Windows 10 only supports the 2.4 & 5GHz bands.
  • Automatically connects to the fastest WiFi available: 2.4GHz, 5GHz, or 6GHz band.††
  • Comes with its own USB cradle & adjustable antenna to maximize signal strength
  • Super-speed USB 3.0 port, up to 10x faster connection than USB 2.0.
  • Works with all standard WiFi networks.

And how Netgear figured AXE3000? It's 5GHz OR 6GHz band. More like AXE1800 with the same "blazing fast" up to 1200Mbps link speed.
