Let us know if there's anything else we can do for you.
Aivxtla, Thanks for this interesting info. I checked the 9260, but my concern with it is that the connector looks different than the Key E, which is what I have on my mobo, an AsRock Z370 Extreme4. Other users report problems trying to fit cards that aren't specifically Key E into that mobo's M2 wifi slot, which is one reason I thought I needed the form-factor of the 9560. The 9260 has that extra gap in the row of teeth, which I think (?) the Key type E doesn't have. If you think that doesn't matter, I would still consider buying it, as I like the idea of the M2 wifi card.
I just came to the Intel Support community with a similar question. In my case I have bought the Intel Wireless-AC 9260 which fits just fine (and works) on my ASRock Z370 Extreme 4 board. So I'm hoping that answers part of your question. This card does indeed fit into the M.2 key E slot.
The issue for me is the antenna pigtails. I can't find information about the connectors. I bought one set that was correct, but the wire was stiff and the space on the mobo was too tight, so ultimately I snapped the connector off the pigtail. In trying to find a more pliable connector, I'm now into my 3rd set with no luck.
