Atheros chipped card for X201s - any suggestions ?

#1 Post by ajkula66 » Sun Apr 28, 2019 12:07 pm

I've recently acquired an X201s that came with an Intel 6200 and I'm not thrilled by the card at all. Has anyone installed an Atheros-chipped card in these systems, and if so which one ?

Thanks in advance for any wisdom you may share.

Thank you.

I was hoping for something with 3 antennae, but it seems that this one will have to do if I want to take the Atheros route...
