I have a Toshiba Satellite A355-s6925 with an Intel WiFi Link 5100. I want to replace the WiFi adaptor with one that includes Bluetooth. Which Intel product would be best suited for this?

Only OEMs are allowed to integrate these adapters:

Installing one yourself may not work:

Hello Michael,

As Doc mentioned, you should contact the http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/topics/OEMs.html Computer Manufacturer Support to confirm if a different http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/wireless-products/wireless-product-selection-guide.html Intel® Wireless Adapter is supported with your PC. Furthermore, Bluetooth* capable adapters require a connector that supports this feature, therefore, the OEM is the best resource to help you upgrade your wireless adapter.

Regards,

 

Jonathan.
