Is the Intel 7260HMW the best replacement wifi/bt adapter for my y500?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to get rid of the original wifi/bt card that drops and is overall garbage. Just making sure the 7260HMW is the best replacement.

well, it's not, it's rated as an 802.ac chip, but it only uses the 2.4GHz bands and does not use 5.0GHz.

AC7260 wlan cards are generally dual band wifi adapter, so it supports both frequencies of 2.4GHz and 5GHz.

And an AC7260HMW wlan card is a best choice if your wlan card slot is mini pcie type.

But if your wlan card slot is M.2 type, then you must buy an AC7260NGW card.
