The WiFi module is the primary method for wireless network connectivity. If this module shows symptoms of malfunction, a USB-to-Ethernet cable adapter can be used to maintain network access until the module is replaced.

I need to replace the wifi card in one of these laptops and I’d like to get a different brand. What is this form factor called?

Is the Bluetooth a separate module to the wifi card?

batmanc - Yanıt

I have the same issue. Couldn’t find anything on the internet. My BT is defective, because it sometimes disables my mouse. This computer was a beautiful and well build, with the great touchscreen, but wireless connections are total mistake from the early beginning. The integrated wifi likes not to find any network. Since 2019 I’m working with the usb WiFi module bought on aliexpress. It is far better than the installed, but sticks out the chassis and took one port.
