Replace WiFi card Y50-70

2017-09-23, 22:45 PM

I've had a lot of problems with my wifi card for like a year so i want to replace it, i did some research finding the manual with the info and the part number https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_y40_50_series_hmm.pdf

The problem is that i have an Atheros ar956x card which is not listed there so i want to know if i can replace it with another one from the manual, i was thinking the intel 7260 would be nice because it also has dual channel (the atheros doesn't) but even if i could i don't know if i can get a new one because of the "part number", they are quite expensive for me compared to other ones like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/04W3806-Intel-Dual-Band-7260NGW-AC-BT4-0-WIFI-NGFF-Card-for-IBM-Lenovo-laptop-/142297172524?hash=item2121928a2c:g:LRUAAOSw4A5YtnT2 because i am not from the US and the shipping cost is quite expensive for me.

tldl: could i replace my atheros ar956x card for the intel card on the ebay listing or anything similar.
