Intel® DB W-AC 7260 adapter size and antennas

Jump to solution

Hi, about Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 is it compatible with Notebook Aspire R7 ?

Are there two sizes ? Because then which one match?

And what about internal antennas, do they come with the package?

The Aspire R7 already have a main and aux internal antenna, but because the device has certain WiFi problem with the pre-installed 802.11n adapter, it might be worth getting the correct antennas with the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260.

Please note that only your system manufacturer is entitled to provide the list of validated and certified adapters that are compatible with your system and the proper means to do the hardware installation since the adapters are meant to be professionally installed by Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) technicians on certified systems only.

Internal antenna cables don't matter. They can't tell whether they're receiving 5 GHz band or 2.4 GHz band or 802.11n or ac etc.. It all depends on the Wi-Fi adapter. All of the mini-pcie half height cards have the same antenna plugs so you can just swap the Wireless-AC 7260 without any problems.

Thanks, I haven´t seen the inside of this notebook, so I don´t quite know what it means. But doesn´t the Intel 7260 use more antennas than main and aux that the Broadcom BCM43228 use ?

I was thinking about ordering the stuff and then taking it to a local repair store to get it fixed. So what does mini-pcie half height mean? Fx on this seller sight: http://www.amazon.de/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?__mk_de_DE=%C3%85M%C3%85Z%C3%95%C3%91&url=search-alias%3Daps... Amazon.de: Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 there are two different parts, which one is matching?

Nope. From this picture of Broadcom BCM43228:

There are 2 antenna prongs and Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC also has 2 antenna prongs So you shouldn't have any problems swapping.

Do you know where I can find the antenna(s) that plug into the little ports on the mini card?

I have the 7260 installed on my desktop (there is an adapter that came with the motherboard) but I don't have any antenna(s) that I can plug into the card for better reception to my router.

I would need the two small pigtail cables that go from the card to the rear connection shield.

(See Picture.... I hope it comes through)

Can anyone help me find this type of antenna? I don't need the PCI thing the card plugs into, just the antenna and the small pigtail wires.

Thanks in advance...
