i have dell latitude E6430 (Service Tag <Service tag removed>) with built in wifi card DW1504 802.11n and i want to upgrade it to dual band wifi that is 2.4 & 5 Ghz . Please suggest which brands are compatible with my laptop? i cannot find any suggestion of up-gradable parts along with compatible parts in use manual of E6430. please help me. i Don't want N type wifi adopter ...
Thank you! I put the card back in the computer and I have been messing with it for another hour... still won't work. I have no idea and am just about done.. Anyone want an Intel 7260 AC adapter? I may throw it away soon if I don't find a solution.
I tried this Intel AC 7260 card (7260HMW) to replace a wireless-N 7260 card on my E6430. The new card was detected by the machine but it did not work ("device fail to start"), despite installing the latest driver from Intel (Wifi_21.10.1_PROSet64_Win10.exe, 5/21/2019).
Welcome to the Dell Community @slim_thumb
There are multiple types of Intel AC 7260.
The ones that seem to work are the generic and the ones with D P/N 0xxxxx
The one in your picture is for an IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad.
FRU P/N 04X6010 is the Field Replacement Unit Part Number
HP have an SPS part number "Serial Peripheral System"
Not sure if it would work or not???
Thanks for the tip U2CAMEB4ME. I thought all AC7260 cards are the same! I bought this from a local ad (kijiji). Maybe I'll try my luck again somewhere else eg. eBay.
This answer is not clear, would you be so kind as to clarify this answer and provide more details?
Which hmw7260 wifi adapters do you find work with the Dell Latitude e6xx0 Laptops?
And which adapters do not work?
