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.

Hi, also have the R11 bluetooth glitch. I’d like to try and preserve warranty as in the CI so can’t easily send it back for repair.

Is this likely to work with any microPCIe card or does it have to be the exact unit specified, believe there are 5 GHz variants now which weren’t available when originally launched.
