I have a Dell inspiron n7010 with an intel i5 M460 that came with intel Centrino N 1030, would it be okay if I upgrade to the intel Centrino N 6235? I hate to damage the laptop. Thank you

You will need to check with your computer manufacturer, as only they can tell you which wireless adapters have been certified to work in your system.

Please keep in mind that the Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 1030 is a PCIe Half MiniCard (HMC) adapter. The Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6235 on the other hand can come in either HMC or M.2. If Dell* says this adapter will be ok, you will need to make sure the replacement comes in the same form factor as your original model.
