If this is for a laptop/notebook, contact the device manaufacturer for assistance on wireless compatibility and integration.

If this is for a desktop, purchase the adapter of your choice and plug it into an available pcie x4 slot.   Remember to install the antennas that come with the adapter.

Hello, @louis7  


Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.  


It is worth mentioning that Intel does not support wireless integrations (installing a different wireless adapter into your system/laptop). We recommend you speak to the Manufacturer of your equipment for support on wireless integrations and replacement parts to ensure compliance with the regulatory requirements of your country and support. It is important to check for compatibility with the System Manufacturer, as there could be certain cards that will not work with the system.  


For more information, read the following article under the title "Regulatory Information Regarding Wireless Hardware Installation or Upgrade.


Please, keep in mind that this thread will no longer be monitored by Intel. Thank you for your understanding.  


Best regards,
