Post Wi-Fi Adapter - 7260HMW - 11-21-2013, 04:58 PM

Hello eeryone,

I would like to change the wireless adapter of my duo since the retail one is really slow and sometimes can't even max up my internet connection while downloading.

Would this MiniPCIe adapter work on the Inspiron Duo?

Intel 7260HMW IEEE 802.11AC
Newegg.com - Intel 7260HMW IEEE 802.11AC, dual-band, 2x2 Wi-Fi plus Bluetooth 4.0 Mini PCI Express combo Adapter - 867 Mbps+300Mbps - Internal - Wireless Adapters

I've already purchased a 64 SSD since I don't need more than that as a 12GB mini USB for ReadyBoost.

Thanks!

I don't see anything obvious why this wouldn't work, as long as your OS has driver support for it. Since you mention Readyboost, I assume you're using Windows, in which case it should not be an issue.

Hey Holmes4,

Appreciate your answer, yes I am using window's I wanted to dual boot but I've decided I am just going to use it with Windows 7 as my Reddit/Forums computer.

Love the machine, I wish it could be a bit more customisable but I think SSD Upgrade, Wi-Fi Upgrade and ReadyBoost w/Micro USB should do the trick for a while. Maybe some Bluetooth wireless headset for on the go.

Thanks for replying.
