Previous owner of my main laptop installed the most modern intel WiFi chip, AX200 to be precise. Unfortunately, chip does not have drivers for beloved Windows 7. Yeah intel dropped support in 2019. So, i have to downgrade wireless card. Found on eBay compatible Dell WiFi 1820 : the last one to support Windows 7 operating system. I always loved Dell’s Precision series for super easy installation of hardware upgrades.
Today, I finally fixed my laptop workstation from 2012. Model Dell M4700 to be precise. Replaced old 2.4Ghz Dell 1504 WiFi module and installed brand new 1540 model with 5Ghz support ordered on eBay. Web speedtest shows around 200 Mbit/s. I’m satisfied with the result. High performance quad-core cpu i7-3740QM (4c/8t) in conjunction with 8Gb of RAM and paired with 2Gb Quadro K1000M workstation video chip can do wonders (of course only within Windows XP abilities).
