Good question, well, there is an unknown device in device manager and no Bluetooth toggle button on the taskbar. Devices wont connect that could before the swap.
The driver i found off the intel site wont install with or without compatibility mode.
Windows update isn't finding anything new either.
I guess i should try uninstalling the original driver?
Im gonna have to look up antenna tuning, ive never even heard of that lol.
Some antennas are rated for both 2.4 & 5, while older ones are only rated for 2.4. I had a devil of a time finding 5Ghz antennas when I was using that particular card. IIRC, I ultimately ended up buying a cheap used router on kijiji just to rob the antennas off of it...
Does your better half use bluetooth with her laptop? If you absolutely had to you could grab a usb 2.0 dongle to plug into the hub you were going to get.
