Upgrade Asus laptop (6235 to 7260) wrong size antennae pins?

Hey guys,

I have an ASUS 15" Zenbook (ux51vz). It has a Intel Centrino 6235 wireless card in it that has been working beautifully. But i recently upgraded our home to wireless AC and it would be nice to get the extra speeds on the laptop.

I have been doing some researching and found that ASUS uses antennae connections that are smaller then normal?

Since the card inside is an official Intel, is this a revision of cards that intel produced or something that asus did themselves?

Is it possible to buy a 7260 card with the same connections?

Are there adapters I can use to make the larger pins fit?

Seems a little odd to me, but any help would be greatly appreciated

Regards

Tim

Questions related to wireless hardware integration on laptops should be addressed to the system manufacturer due to compatibility and required regulatory approvals that need to be met by the system as a whole. Intel® wireless adapters are meant to be professionally installed by Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) technicians on certified systems only.
