I have a W540 that came with the Intel Wireless-AC 7260. The card and/or drivers has been unreliable since I got the laptop. The latest (last?) driver update seems to be the worst. The card simply stops communicating at all until I disable/enable it in windows, then it will be good for a few minutes to a few hours, depending on the phase of the moon.
I'd like to put another dual-band M.2 2230 (2242?) wifi card in it, and trash the 7260, but of course, there's the infamous BIOS whitelist.
So, what are my options? What cards are permitted? Can I request a specific card be added to the whitelist in a BIOS update? Is this whitelist actually avaiable for viewing anywhere?
