I just looked your board specifications (should have done firstly):
https://www.asrock.com/MB/Intel/H370M%20Pro4/index.asp#Specification

And it says:
1 x M.2 Socket (Key E), supports type 2230 WiFi/BT module and IntelĀ® CNVi (Integrated WiFi/BT)

So it looks like your board does support CNVi card on top of WiFi/BT module. So that add option. I have no idea however if:
- CNVi is better than WiFi/BT
- CNVi2 (as listed for AX201) is different
So do your search on CNVi to see if better and if you should get that instead.

(Seem like there is a version of your board with /ac in its name that should have everything integrated without headache too, but dunno if it costs way more or if easily available)

You might be interested in those links:

- https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapc/comments/atefhp/intel_cnvi_wifi_wirelessac_9560_is_it_really/
    - No clear answer on which is better though...

Quickly, I don't understand what is the advantage, but it seems CNVi is preferred when you have the choice.

Now if you or someone else do search and figure out the advantage of one over another, please reply here.

Also need to check for AX201 why it says CNVi2 and if that is compatible with CNVi on your mobo or we have to be aware of a difference there? (please also reply if you have the answer to this!)

P.S., For my board https://www.asrock.com/MB/Intel/Z370%20Pro4/index.asp#Specification
It was only saying: - 1 x M.2 Socket (Key E), supports type 2230 WiFi/BT module
So that is why I had to avoid anything mentionning CNVi.


Thank you! I'll be sure to do so!
