My HP 820 G2’s WiFi/Bluetooth card was working bit intermittently. Especially Bluetooth was reconnecting all the time with my speakers if I didn’t listen to music.

I didn’t find any information which WiFi/Bluetooth card might be a good choice to upgrade. I took a chance and just ordered Intel 9260NGW card. It seems to work fine after couple hours; don’t know how it’ll be in the long run. My original card was Intel 7265NGW.

NGW = NGFF = M.2 slot, source: https://www.dell.com/community/Laptops-G...
