Default Wifi 6 (ax) compatibility first gen of Corsair One

Hello guys, I will be switching to the latest generation of WiFi routers (WiFi 6 - ax) soon. I would like to leverage it on my Corsair one first gen.
Is it possible to update it through software? Or is it possible to upgrade the network controller through hardware?

Any input is appreciated.

It'd require a hardware upgrade. The WiFi module on the first generation CORSAIR ONE systems sits in the motherboard, close to the rear IO. I believe you'll have to remove the motherboard to get access to it due to the placement of screws securing the module in place. WiFi 6 compatible parts like the AX200 should work fine and would require reinstalling BT and WiFi drivers after physical installation.

Thank you for your kind reply.
I will explore the options, and get back here to tell the forum about my upgrade when it's done.
