Hi test987,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


We cannot guarantee those 3rd party WLAN card not listed in the hardware manual (page91, item 12). Non whitelisted cards usually get prompt of non detection so I am not confident that any new WLAN wifi 6 cards would be, specially that the BIOS version last update shows Oct. 23 2015.


Some may manage modding the BIOS but it is not recommended because of the risk of bricking the machine. I have no confirmed any WLAN card upgrade to wifi 6 yet at the moment either so possibilities is not big.


I hope this helps answer your query.
