Wireless Network Card Setup

Part I: Before Starting

  • Make sure your system is compatible by reviewing our support article on Wireless Network Card Compatibility and checking your new adapter's product page for details.
  • Keep in mind that transmission speeds vary based on environmental conditions and your actual internet speed depends on the bandwidth provided by your ISP.
  • Avoid connecting or testing speeds while using a VPN as it can reduce performance.
  • Download all required drivers (Wi-Fi and Bluetooth) before physically installing your network card. You can find more details in the Driver Installation Steps.

Part II: I Just Received My New Wi-Fi Card. Now What?


  1. Turn off your system's power and follow your system manual's directions to locate and detach the current wireless module.
  2. Disconnect the old antennas and remove the old network card, ensuring to remove any screws if applicable.
  3. Install your new network card by inserting it into the slot and secure it with any necessary screws.
  4. Reattach the original antenna connectors to your new network card.
  5. Power on your system to test the new Wi-Fi Card.
  6. Verify your internet speed and install the necessary drivers if they are not automatically installed.
