G580 list of supported wifi cards/adaptors



I want to upgrade  my current wifi card/adaptor from N  standart to A or AC  standart.I was not able to find a list of the supported wifi adaptors, i came across a list of cards that were blacklisted and you needed to change the BIOS in order to get them going.

Can some one provide me with a list of wifi cards/adaptors that will work with my laptop.


Proccessor: i7-3632QM


Motherboard Chipset: Intel Panther Point HM76, Intel Ivy Bridge

System Memory 6043 MB (DDR3-1600 DDR3 SDRAM)

BIOS Type Insyde (12/20/2012)

Network Adapter Atheros AR8162/8166/8168 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller

Network Adapter Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter


Thank you !
