Vostro 5490: Is there any problem if I replace the WLAN card

Hello,

It there any problem if I replace/upgrade the WLAN card from "WiFi 5 - BT 5.0" to "Killer Wi-Fi 6 - BT 5.1"?

Do I only need replace and install drivers, or will do I need anymore?

Is there a Dell driver for the new card?

I do not know, but in the Dell' website I have found this:

Is anything useful to upgrade?

Or is only necessary the Intel's drivers?

The Intel driver should be enough, but I have no personal experience with this WLAN card.
