    Upgrade from Intel Centrino Ultimate 6300-N?

    UBoMW

      Hello Folks,

       

      I have a Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 in my laptop and I am looking for the best possible card that can be used as an upgrade

      (the laptop is a HP EliteBook 8540w and the os is Win10Pro 64bit). On top of the better WiFi, I would also need the Bluetooth 4 upgrade that is available integrated with this card.

      From a preliminary search on this forum, it seems that the issue is the form factor, which changed from PCIe Half Mini Card to some "M2" form factor. Dues to this, the best card might be the Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260.

       

      So... can somebody confirm that indeed this is the best card, given the form factor?

      Is the difference in the number of antennas (3x3 for the 6300, 2x2 for the 7260) a compatibility factor in any way?

       

      Thanks:

       

      UB
