    Hello.

    In connection with the upgrade of the home network, I would like to change the existing Wifi 2.4GHz Atheros AR9285 network card to a compatible WiFi card, but in the 5GHz standard, in my quite old laptop SAMSUNG R530-JT50PL.
    Is such an operation possible? If so, what card models will work? What to look for?

    Thanks for any constructive reply :)

    What you entered is just a chip, not a card symbol.

    What EXACTLY model is the card?

    In the picture it's miniPCI (half), but here the antenna connectors also play a role. Seems like u.fl, but I'd rather be sure.

    If there is no so-called you name it and it will work. And when I verify Google, Samsung does not block.

    In my bios I did not find anything that could block, but probably without disassembling the entire laptop I will not check exactly what card model it is :( Well, unless it is soft?

    AIDA64? Windows control panel and in the network center does not show?

    Look on Youtube how it gets started and maybe you can read the sticker without removing it.

    well, I already gave it in the first post: Atheros AR9285 drawn with the HWiNFO64 program

    After Mac it turns out that the producer is Foxconn. I took a photo through the memory slot, it only says Made in China there

    Easy access seems to me, so take it out and see underneath.

    After ven and dev it can be the Dell 1702, i.e. 1x1: 1 with bluetooth, but due to the fact that it costs about PLN 100, I would prefer to be 100% sure.

    Well, access is not easy, you have to disassemble the entire laptop :-( The bank laptop does not have a BT module. After the address, the manufacturer is Foxconn, so it will not be Dell.

    If there is no bluetooth module, something like this: https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Foxconn_T77H126.00

    So you are buying a Dell DW 1550 or Intel 7260. These are 300 Mb N and 867 Mb AC cards, because they are 2x2: 2

    Unless you feel like buying three antennas and replacing your present ones. But it is under the matrix that you have to stick to.

    A Atheros AR5B22?

    It's a 2x2: 2 card, but without the 5 GHz AC mode. A non-future purchase.

    I will step on the topic because I want to do the same
    Hello, I have a Dell XPS L501X and an Intel (R) Centrino (R) Wireless-N 1030 network card that only works in one 2.4 range. I would like to change the card to a dual band to catch two ranges of 2.4 and 5 Ghz. What do you recommend to suit my old man

    Mini PCIe (half) and u.fl connectors, so Dell Wireless 1550 (DW1550) or Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 (7260HMW).

    welcome back

    So I finally found time and replaced the radio with Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 (7260HMW)
    Before assembly, I uninstalled the headset to the old network cable, after replacing it in Windows 7, I installed the latest drivers from the Intel website https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/276...Set-Wireless-Software-and-Drivers-for-Windows -7-? Product = 75439
    The driver installed correctly, unfortunately it insists that the device cannot be started (error code 10). The bluetooth module is working properly. I thought it was a good opportunity to plow old Windows, unfortunately after reinstalling the same, changing to Windows 10 did not change anything,
    I thought that the card was released, unfortunately any Linux Live works perfectly with this card.
    I'm in a bind, any ideas?
