X220 and the AC-8265

2017-11-10, 18:24 PM

I see that Intel has a more recent AC-8265 Wi-Fi card. I was wondering if this would work ok my X220? My BIOS has been fixed to get rid of whitelists and I see that this card is wave 2 802.11ac so its 2T2R making it markedly better than the Centrino N1000 I have installed at present.

 

The AC-8265 seems to be the right size, but its pins are keyed in a different way than the AC-7260 etc

Turns out that this device will not work as it is designed for a newer model machine than my old X220 can support.

 

This means the AC-7260 is the best bet for a better Wi-Fi card for the machine using Intel's hardware.
