I need to upgrade my laptop with an Intel Wigig network card. I found two models:

  • Intel® Tri-Band Wireless-AC 18260 18260NGW WiGig (802.11ad)
  • Intel® Tri-Band 17265

My laptop is the Dell Inspiron 7566. As i cannot find information about Dell Inspirion. I know it is possible to do with Dell Latitude.

I contacted Dell support but they said that they did not test that models and that I would best report it here.

Also they do not recommend it as always.

I do not really understand why it should work on older dell laptops and to laptop with Intel i7 much more expesive laptop they are not sure about it.

Can anybody help me to implement wigig to my laptop ? That is very important to me.
