Intel 7260 HMWWB

Hello,

I have just purchased this wireless card for my new Asus X541UX for upgrading it to 5Ghz wireless.

When I have disassembled it, I saw that there is only one internal wireless cable.

What does it mean ? Is this wifi card compatible with my notebook ?

Thanks

Hello damiano,

The Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 requires 2 antennas for proper operation. If the PC only has one, it means that it was not designed to use this type of adapter.

Please keep in mind that custom integrations are not supported by Intel since this may lead to installation errors, connection issues, software error messages, and in some cases it may even be illegal.

 

Intel does not recommend end users install or upgrade the various Intel® Wireless Adapter. You should always contact the http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/topics/OEMs.html Computer Manufacturer or its authorized representative to check which adapters are supported by your PC and have it replaced with them whenever possible.
