 It was built around April 2015 therefore the chance is 50/50. The series has 3 options

 

  • Broadcom BCM43142 802.11 b/g/n 1x1 Wi-Fi + BT4.0 M.2 Combo Adapter part # 792608-005
  • Realtek RTL8188EE 802.11b/g/n 1x1 Wi-Fi Adapter part # 792609-005
  • Realtek RTL8723BE 802.11b/g/n 1x1 Wi-Fi + BT4.0 Combo Adapter part # 792610-005

You should be able to use USB adapter such as

You will get much better speed too.

Hi, Thank you for replying! I have checked out the broadcom one using the sparepart number there and it seems the card would fit(kinda) because it seems that some part of the card has been cut. ( But It seems it fits the slot and the screws do too) 
RTL 8723BERTL 8723BEBCM 43142BCM 43142Do You think it would be fine?
