Hi Alexx5,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Compatible WLAN that is certified for your machine are those listed in the hardware manual (item10 page 71). Choice of card are limited to BIOS whitelist as others may not be recognized by the machine.


You may also check on parts lookup here (click Wireless LAN adapter in the commodity list) as it would also present other substitutes that would work on the system.


If you have a spare BCM94352Z or BCM94352ZAE to try but there is no guarantee so I don't advise purchasing non listed wlan cards.


I hope this helps answer your query.
