i7-10810U (CK10) Wifi

Post by cliffh44 »

Will an Intel AX201 WiFi card work in the i7-10810U?

The Realtek wifi card shipped with the pc often connects on the 2.4Ghz band at 72Mbps. After a re-boot, sometimes more than 1, it will connect on the 5Ghz band with much better speed. If possible, I'd like to replace the Realtek card with the Intel card listed above.

i7-10810U supports replacing AX201. It is next to the VGA connector. You need to remove the screw fixing the VGA interface, and then you can see the network card chip.
PS: At this step, please note that the network card has a WiFi antenna and a Bluetooth antenna.

Replaced the Realtek wifi adapter with the Intel AX201 this afternoon.
Major upgrade well worth the effort. Wifi speed is now 1.2Gbps
