Hi:

 

Here's the problem you may have:

 

I believe that your notebook only has one Wi-Fi antenna wire connected to the Broadcom Wi-Fi card and the Intel card you want to install requires two antenna wires in order to work properly.

 

With only one antenna wire, the card will not get the proper reception it needs.

 

But if your notebook has two antenna wires attached to the Broadcom card, the Intel card you posted should work fine.

 

Below is the link to the service manual.
