I think you are confusing a WiFi module and a CPU...

I need some help. My chromebook has a 2.4ghz processor but I want to upgrade it to a 5ghz. Is this what I should follow to do that? does it take an AC processor or only N? Will it be compatible if my processor is a broadcom and I want to upgrade to intel? Please let me know as soon as possible because my chroembook is really slow even though it comes with 32gb instead of 2gb.
