Modded bios and fastest wifi card

2021-01-11, 14:21 PM

I am a 61yrs old novice here so go easy with me,  I recently Modded my x2 t430's Bois using 1vyrain, I did this and it seems without any hickups basically done this to give me more options in the hopes I could fit a faster wifi card, the trouble I am having now is choosing the right card as the last thing I want to do is pay for something that will not run in properly with my older i7-3632qm - t430 latop 16gb ram, so I recently purchased a Centrino 6250 and it installed and seems to work fine, so now I wish to upgrade the other t430 with a even better wifi card if possible, but to add to my confusion I have recently just noticed that there are m.2 to mini pci-e adapters out there, can anyone point me in the right direction on where to go with this, fyi some sites that are selling ax wifi cards state that there cards only work with a greater than Gen xx CPU. any help appreciated and thanks for taking the time to read
