Hi All,

I would like to know which wifi card I need to get for my hackintosh to work I currently have Intel 7260 and I just bought the
AzureWave AW-NE773 Atheros AR9280 AR5BHB92 Half Mini PCIE which doesn't fit my laptop. Looks like a need full height PCI-E card.

Thanks

I have both a half size and a full size atheros, and they both work... simultaneously, at that.

Your existing card is not mini PCIe (half or full). It is M.2 (formerly called NGFF).
