If this adapter is supported in your laptop (something you have to verify with Dell, not us), the AX200 is a good choice, adding Wireless-AX, WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5 support.

there appears to be 2 different boards that are similar from what I have read one is for Intel boards and one is for all others. Can you tell me which one i need?

Dell says they system is open.

Actually, the situation is the exact opposite. Intel makes an AX200 IC ("chip"). In addition to intel themselves, there are a number of third parties that make M.2 Type E cards that include this AX200 IC. They all are essentially the same and they all use the same driver packages (WiFi and Bluetooth). Still, I would stick with the Intel version: https://www.amazon.com/WiFi-AX200-PCs-802-11AX-Bluetooth-NGW/dp/B07TLBNSZQ.
