Hello Stollen123,



We understand you would like to upgrade the wireless adapter of your laptop and you are considering the https://ark.intel.com/products/99445/Intel-Wireless-AC-9260 Intel® Wireless-AC 9260 as a possibility. We would like to inform that Intel does not sell or recommend wireless adapters directly to end customers. Before you install the device in a system, you must contact the https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/topics/OEMs.html Computer Manufacturer Support to determine if the product is approved for use in your PC. Even if the form factor was compatible, your laptop may not recognize new hardware when you install an Intel® Wireless Adapter for several reasons, such as manufacturer limitations, PCIe* Version compatibility, Regulatory issues, or Driver Limitations. In some cases, installing adapters in an unauthorized system may be illegal.



The manufacturer will be able to inform if your laptop is compatible with the AC 9260, and also if the PC supports Intel® vPro™ Technology or not.
