The wifi card in my ASUS X555LN laptop has started to act funny. When I install the latest driver for it, the connection drops frequently, but when I roll back to an older driver the system crashes. Because of all this, I've started looking for a replacement card, but have not found any compatible models (made exactly for my laptop). The question is, can I buy a newer one that also support the ac standard or am I limited to the n standard that my current card supports?

u can use any as long its not blacklisted in bios and pcie connector is same

this one is dual band, 2.4ghz and 5ghz
in case youll get issues with 5GHz, u may also need to replace antenna

I believe my current card has only one antenna and the card you provided as an example features two. Could I connect only one antenna and use the 2.4 ghz frequency, or do I need two in order for the card to work properly? It says that the card you provided is compatible with the 4th gen i5 processor (which is the one I have), but I can't for the love of god find any compatibility info for my laptop model. No drivers on the Asus's website feature an Intel one; there's Broadcom, Realtek, Qualcomm, but no Intel.

Couldn't find the exact same model as the one you mentioned here.

Will this one do the trick: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32824368737.html?spm=2114.12010612.8148356.20.584551eeHIzSQu?

I've read that this particular model from Intel (HMW) is exceptionally good, but the HMWWB-R model is unavailable from where I'm ordering.
