    Upgrading from 3160HMW to 7260HMW


      I'm looking to upgrade my MSI laptop's wireless-AC card from a 3160HMW to 7260HMW.  The 7260HMW was discontinued by Intel quite a while ago, so I'm checking the secondary markets for a card.  I see a lot of the wireless-AC cards available for the secondary market are labeled "PTA APPROVED MODEL".  I presume that the label is to satisfy Pakistani regulations for sale of radio equipment here, but is the underlying hardware exactly the same as other 7260HMW cards sold in the rest of the world?  That is, if I bought a "PTA" card for use in Canada, would it work?
