How to check if a particular internal Wi-Fi card would work for a laptop?

Last Modified: 2016-11-23
Hello everyone,

The Wi-Fi card that came with the laptop Dell Inspiron 15R (5537) – Intel 7260BGN is extremely slow and I was wondering if I can replace it with the 7260NGW Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 802.11ac, Dual Band, 2x2 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.0 card

It's available on eBay as well.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.
