    Best Wi-Fi adapter upgrade for a G751JY laptop.

    Hi, my G751JY laptop lacks 5GHz functionality. What is currently the fastest Wi-Fi 802.11AC capable adapter that money can buy for my laptop?

    I would replace the WiFi adapter with an Intel 7260.HMWWB.R.

    Your model laptop has one of three WiFi adapters: Broadcom, Qualcomm Atheros, and Intel

    Your model has Intel® HM87 Express Chipset and Intel® Core™ i7 4860HQ /4710HQ Processor.

    My laptop has currently the Qualcomm Atheros AR956x Wireless Network Adapter. Will this upgrade be compatible you think?

    Considering the age of your laptop, the Intel 7260 is a pretty good match.

    There are newer and faster WiFi adapters but would not operate in optimal mode with the HM87 Express chipset.

    Good luck

    If you go for 7260 make sure to optimize it for 2.4ghz network or you'll suffer. I have upgraded my g750jz and after i finally fixed it it works fine, otherwise its laggy in online games.
