WiFi card compatibility

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP



My daily driver laptop is an Acer Aspire A717-71G-72C0, I would like to replace the wificard inside it, but i could not find out what would i need.

Original card part number:  NC.23611.030

Candidate A: Intel® Wireless-AC 9560 (M.2: CNVio)

Candidate B: Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (AX200 Wi-Fi(PCIe), BT(USB))

Candidate B: Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (AX201 M.2: CNVio2)


My propblem with the original is that it is slow, and unstable. (and i got a new gigabit ap :D).


Thank you for the answers

Looks like the original has a key A+E, so you'd want the AX200. The other 2 are E only, which may not fit your slot. 

Would need a picture of the slot to be sure. 


BTW I just bought an AX200 and it works great.

Any physically compatible card should do, most laptop ones come in m.2 key E form.
