Get the right card: The M.2 slot comes in a variety of types. One type is primarily for SSD another wireless cards. It's only going to be found in newer systems most of which are coming onto the market as of mid 2015. If your system pre-dates December of 2013 this card is not compatible with your system.



Notice: Many Apple, HP, Lenovo, IBM, Dell, and Toshiba branded products are defective by design. They use digital restrictions management technology and proprietary connectors to limit what hardware may be installed. This is usually a digital restriction in the BIOS that prevents the otherwise standards compliant M.2 slot from accepting anything but wifi cards sold by the PC manufacturer. If you have a problem with this please contact support to return or exchange the product within 14 days. For impacted users we recommend a USB wifi card instead.
