WiFi 6 support on Thinkpad X13?

I am using a Thinkpad X13 Gen 2 which supports Wifi 6. I am wondering if Manjaro supports these, how can I check it?

I can use Wifi, but I do not know if its wifi6

If there is support for it in the kernel - then yes.

WiFi 6 requires AP support - so if your AP supports WiFi 6 and the kernel you are using supports it - but I don’t know.

Yes, Intel supports WiFi 6 since kernel 5.1 and WiFi 6E since kernel 5.10.
