I would like to upgrade my Lenovo Flex 15, model 20309, wifi card. It says I have wireless-N 7260 and I would like it upgraded to a fast dual band card. I am having trouble finding a wifi card that I am confident will be compatible with my laptop. Most of the 7260’s say they do not work with Lenovo. Any help is very much appreciated!
