This is not the fault of the wireless card. This is a SLIMEBALL laptop or motherboard manufacturer who has implemented a whitelist or blacklist in their BIOS so that you are forced to use only certain cards purchased through them (at a sizeable markup, of course). Who exactly is this manufacturer? I certainly won't be purchasing anything from them in the future.

 

BTW, you should have gotten the Intel AX200 card. This gives you Wireless-AX, WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5 support and still costs about the same amount as this card (US$22).
