I want to upgrade my laptop with AX210NGW WiFi 6E WiFi card. Is it ok for my laptop model ?
I know i need to mod the bios for it.

What benefit do you believe you will get from adding WIFI 6E to a 6 year old laptop?
The laptop was available with an Intel 7260AC (dual band) WIFI. I would recommend that.

Thanks for your answer sir, but you dont help me on my question.
Qusetion is, if this card is compatible with my old lapotop and if i have to change the adapetrs also.
The benefit i expect to see, is another story.
I only use my laptop for internet and office . I want the maximum prerformance for these tasks. Even if i get little improvememnt from this mod, why not.
Question is, if possible ?

No idea. If you "have" to modify the BIOS, then technically the answer is no. Can you plug it in? I think yes. Will this happen -- https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-P-and-W-Series-Mobile-Workstations/Intel-AX210NGW-1802-Unauthorized-network-card-Suggestions/m-p/5059690?page=1
Probably yes.
Is there any benefit for a 6+ year old laptop? Very little, if any.

Do you already have the 7260AC adapter ?

The laptop is exactly how i bought it first day.
Sorry, but why you keep mentioning the ...6+ years laptop ?
The performance on wireless internet use , would be different if my latop was 1 year old with the AX201 card ?
I dont understand ?

I keep pointing out the age and modest performance of the laptop because, network performance above the 400+ Mbit throughput that the AC adapter can provide will be a small percentage gain for a whole lot of hassle.
