Thanks for posting. We understand that you're looking to replace your wireless adapter with a newer model.
Intel® Wireless adapter antenna information is shared directly with OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) for them to install them on their systems. Therefore, what antennas each adapter uses is not explicitly shown on the adapters specifications. However, it'll be unlikely for one of the newer cards to use an older antenna standard.
We do not recommend end users install or upgrade the various Intel® Wireless Adapter; you should always contact the Computer Manufacturer Support or its authorized representative to check which adapters are supported by your computer and replace it with them whenever possible. For more information, please check the following advisories:
- Why Doesn't My Laptop Recognize My New Intel® Wireless Adapter?
- Regulatory Information Regarding Hardware Installation or Upgrade
Let us know if there's anything else we can do for you.
