a card like this AC-7260 will work fine: https://www.ebay.ie/itm/402317297704
Ireland is on FULL lockdown until 5 March 2021!
Covid-19: Stay safe, so Mask it or Casket!
Two follow-up questions:
- Is that the best/fastest 802.11ac card I get use in my W520?
- Is it only the form factor of the wifi card that needs to match, or does it,e.g., have it be Intel as well?
Any Mini-PCIE card will fit, the brand doesn't matter.
Also if you decide to get the AC-7260 take into account that card had some early production batches which had some problems (you'll have to tape a pin in order to get Bluetooth working and stuff like that). So try to get a "revised", late production model of that card and it will work perfectly I think. I found this document on Intel page and it helped me to get a revised model, perhaps it can help you too:
