I have 3 questions to the Intel Tri-Band Wireless-AC 18265:
1. Should it work with 8th Generation I7 CPUs?
2. Should it work with the Gigabit Antenna-M 10041R?
3. What is the difference between the Gigabit Antenna-M 10041R and the Gigabit Antenna-M 10101R?
We understand you have some questions regarding the Intel® Tri-Band Wireless-AC 18265.
While you may be already be aware, I feel it's important for us to mention that the 802.11ad module in these adapters is intended to work with paired with a WiGig docking station. The docking station in turn will allow for Ethernet connectivity.
For wireless Internet access, the adapter will function using the 802.11ac WiFi module in the adapter.
Keep in mind our support for custom wireless integrations or upgrades is limited. We always recommend working with your motherboard or computer manufacturer for approval and hardware validation.

Now, back to your questions:
We hope this information helps.
do you know the diference between the 2 Antenna modules? I have the Intel® Gigabit Antenna-M 10041R from the 18260 adapter and will use these antenna with the 18265 adapter. Do you know if this could work?
Since our support for these type of integrations is limited, we're unable to provide much detail in regard to the Gigabit antenna's specifications
The main difference I can see is the antenna's dimensions, although they use the same connector to the wireless adapter. This is probably an important factor for an OEM designing a laptop, but may not be as relevant in your particular scenario.

In short, I believe it should work, but we are unable to confirm.
Now I have installed the 18265 module and the antenna. But I have a problem with the driver installation under Windows 10 64bit. The installation says there was no compatible hardware. The WIFI works very well on this module. I have the same problem with a 18260 module. What could I do?
