Buy a usb network adapter instead of trying to replace the internal one that might not be removable. Disable the onboard adapter after installing the new usb one.

@ninjanoir78  I would actually recommend that you just try to find a working Intel 7260.  @Mary G  always tells people who ask questions like this to buy a USB network adapter, but they're not nearly as convenient.  They permanently occupy a USB port, and then you have the dilemma of having to either use an adapter that's small enough to be convenient but which therefore has weak antennas, or else have a USB adapter that has larger external antennas (usually on a stand and attached to the adapter with a wire) but is therefore much less portable.  The benefit of an internal card is that you don't sacrifice any USB ports and you get to take advantage of the large antennas that are built into the laptop's display assembly.  The Intel 7260 is a great choice, and it's still pretty easy to find online even though it's been discontinued.
