I Team, i broken the connectors of my current wifi card the intel AC 7265 and i was looking for a replacement but since it's from 2004 has been really hard to find it in my countr (Argentina) but i found the model AC 9260 which has the same connector, size and is for same slot. would it work if i go for that one?

Hi:

 

That card should work fine, but it has to be the non-vPro version.

 

Were you able to get the broken terminal pieces out from inside the wifi antenna cables?

 

It took me about an hour to do that when I broke the terminals off my Intel 7265 wifi card on a desktop PC.

Hi Paul! in first place thank you so much for you response, i will order the piece right away(of course the non-vpro version) 

 

about the pieces, i could take them off (i think completely) but just to make sure i was thinking in ordering new cables as well, just in case i broke mine in the middle. 

 

have a nice weekend

You're very welcome.

 

Most likely the terminals are broken off inside the antenna 'cups.'

 

I used a jeweler's loupe, a needle nose pliers and a sewing needle to pry the broken pieces out from under the connectors.

 

They were not damaged, snapped right onto the Intel 9260 card I bought, and it worked just fine.

 

I can't believe how thin and delicate the cables are.

 

You have a nice weekend too and good luck with the upgrade.
