    Upgrade Asus laptop (6235 to 7260) wrong size antennae pins?

    Takitoes

      Hey guys,

       

      I have an ASUS 15" Zenbook (ux51vz). It has a Intel Centrino 6235 wireless card in it that has been working beautifully. But i recently upgraded our home to wireless AC and it would be nice to get the extra speeds on the laptop.

       

      I have been doing some researching and found that ASUS uses antennae connections that are smaller then normal?

       

      Since the card inside is an official Intel, is this a revision of cards that intel produced or something that asus did themselves?

      Is it possible to buy a 7260 card with the same connections?

      Are there adapters I can use to make the larger pins fit?

       

      Seems a little odd to me, but any help would be greatly appreciated

       

      Regards

       

      Tim
