Hello. I would like to upgrade the wireless card on my Dell XPS 15 - 9530 and I was looking into the newest Intel AC 8265NGW card. Could anyone please confirm this is doable? Thank you!

Hi rros,

 

 

Thanks for the interest in our Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 adapter.

 

 

Based on the limited information we were able to find, it looks like it is possible to install the adapter on the system. Please keep in mind, we do not support wireless adapter upgrades.

We recommend you to contact https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/topics/oems.html Dell* so they can confirm the compatibility of your system with the adapter. Also, We strongly advise you to purchase parts directly from the manufacturer.

Did you upgrade the wireless card to the 8265?

I have the same Dell XPS and my wireless card is going bad and I figure if I'm opening the laptop to fix it might as well upgrade!

Thanks!

Adam
