Top Customer Reviews
Installation was a breeze, I followed the iFixit guide. While the instructions state that you have to remove the battery, I found this wasn't actually necessary. This chip has the pins to connect in the PCIe slot and two pins on the opposite end for the radio cables.The default radio cable configuration is different than the plug connections; The Broadcom chip has the pins on either side of the small rounded section in the center, while the Intel one has the pins on the right side. This complicated things slightly, and my large fingers had some trouble. But about 15 minutes and some tweezers later, installation was complete.
After turning on the laptop post-installation, I was pleasantly surprised by the instant recognition of the new wireless card through Windows. It seems it runs out of the box on the compatible operating systems.
Overall the performance is substantially better than the included Broadcom chip, the updated Bluetooth features are very nice, and the range is phenomenal! I cannot recommend the upgrade enough! The only qualm I have is that this chip does not support sniffing packets over the air, so if you're hoping to use this with Wireshark to do fun snooping, you'll have to stick to the Broadcom chip or keep looking.
Connection problems are no longer happening with this chip.
