Is there a current Intel mini-PCIe MHF4 wifi adapter?

Hi,

My laptop has a Centrino N-6235ANHMW network adapter, which has the strange combination of being mini-PCIe but with MHF4 antenna connectors.

Usually mini-PCIe cards come with U.FL connectors (MHF4 connectors being standard for NGFF/m.2 wifi adapters).

Old card with MHF4 to the left, normal card with U.FL to the right.

I'm looking to replace this adapter (for 802.11ac and better driver support) – preferably Intel again but I'm unable to find a card with this specific combination of connectors. Am I SOL on this one?

Thanks for any insights!

Hello Wessel,

 

 

Thanks for posting. We understand that you're looking to replace your wireless adapter with a newer model.

 

 

Intel® Wireless adapter antenna information is shared directly with OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) for them to install them on their systems. Therefore, what antennas each adapter uses is not explicitly shown on the adapters specifications. However, it'll be unlikely for one of the newer cards to use an older antenna standard.

 

 

We do not recommend end users install or upgrade the various Intel® Wireless Adapter; you should always contact the Computer Manufacturer Support or its authorized representative to check which adapters are supported by your computer and replace it with them whenever possible. For more information, please check the following advisories:
