Dell N5050 and N5030 wireless cards


I have two old Dell laptops, an N5050 and an N5030. On the N5030 the USB ports are all knackered and I've basically given up using it. The N5050 has always been a bit temperamental about connecting to wireless.

If I took them both to someone sufficiently capable could the wireless card be swapped out of the N5030 to the N5050 or are the cards incompatible?
