Intel 7260 Dual-Band M.2 NGFF Card

Recommended Posts

Hello Ramalama,

 

I have the Sony Vaio Pro 13. The laptop is awesome except for the intel N 7260 (I think same problems of intel 7260ac). The socket is NGFF M2 so im interested in this card BCM94352Z. As I know, this card is the first non intel NGFF M2. Did you finally get it. If so, how is going, is there a driver? for windows 7 or 8 or 8.1? ....thanks in advance

 

Joe

Hi  :-)

 

I can ask you all that questions in 3-6 days... My UX301 is in RMA now... there was some errors with one of both ssd and bios brick...

 

Didn't tested the BCM94352z till now, but i have it already here and ready to build in  :-)

 

What i can say is, im sure this card will work on osx without problems, just with modified kext or ssdt.

On Windows it should work without problems too...

 

Its a normal Broadcom 4352 Card just with ngff interface/connector... There is nothing new and nothing different, same card as mpcie version... just as ngff...

 

ngff is just the connector, and it uses PCI x2 lanes... Our systems (Windows/OSX) should see the card as normal pci card...

 

And it should be little bit better as the intel 7260 card... Broadcom cards was always better as intel cards...

 

After i get my laptop back, i will write how-to or something in the thread  :-)

 

Cheers  :-)

UPDATE:

 

It's working perfect in Windows 8.1 and OSX :-)

Both Bluetooth and Wifi :-)

 

For Wifi you need kext/ssdt/dsdt edit, for bluetooth you need BTFirmwareUploader :-)

 

Cheers :-)

Hello RamaLama, I have talked to you in the past about the UX302La. I also have the NGFF/M.2 formatted 7260 card which is unsupported. Is this what your card looks like here? Thanks

Hey,

i am looking for your recommended BCM94352Z Module. Do you know where to buy one? Want to replace my Intel 7265 in order to try OSX68.  :)

If my notebook just would have mini PCIe and not this freaking NGFF M.2 slot. 

Have a nice day
