Wifi Card Upgrade



My name is Ignacio and I'm having problems with my Wifi Card.
Wifi connection fails and it disconnects, I have to turn it OFF/ON in order to connect to the network again, sometimes it can take several minutes.
It's a Realtek 8822BE Wireless adapter, this is the one that I currently have on my computer.
My laptop is a Lenovo Legion Y730 with a i7 8750H.
I have already tried to update Drivers and I couldn't fix it.
So I want to buy a new one , but Im not sure of compatibility.
I have to options:
*Intel Wireless Ac 9260
* Intel Wireless 9260ngw
Any of this ones will work with my i7 8750H???
I hope that someone can help me.

These are all independent of the processor/chipset utilized and plug into the standard M.2 Type E socket:


  • Wireless-AC 9260    (WiFi 4, Wireless-AC, Bluetooth 5.1, 1733 Mb/s)
  • Wi-Fi 6 AX200          (WiFi 6, Wireless-AX, Bluetooth 5.1, 2400 Mb/s)
  • Wi-Fi 6E AX210        (WiFi 6e, Wireless-AX, Bluetooth 5.1, 2400 Mb/s)

Before purchasing or installing any of these cards, you need to verify with Lenovo that these adapters can be used.


Hope this helps,



P.S. And yes, you want the NGW versions of these cards. Make sure that you are purchasing a real Intel card, not a Chinese clone.
