Can I upgrade the N 7260 wireless card on my Inspiron 15 7537 with the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265?

I would like to upgrade the speed of my wireless network card on my Inspiron 15 7537.  Intel says wireless-ac 8265 has the same M.2 form factor.  Can I upgrade the N 7260 with this card as a simple plug and play replacement?

Hi mitchch,

Thanks for posting.

Apologies that your system is not working as expected.

The wireless cards for Dell systems are developed and tested to work with those systems.  Whether the ac 9260 is compatible with the Inspiron 7537 is not readily available.  Here is some information from Intel that may be helpful.  http://intel.ly/2B3JQMP  http://intel.ly/2A4gm24

Basically unless another user on the Forum has tried this, the definitive answer would be to contact Dell Tech Support and ask.  You can contact Tech Support at 1-800-624-9896 or 1-800-288-4410, or you can initiate a chat session http://del.ly/6599D87cx
