    Hey guys!!! Happy new year =) So does anyone know if we can upgrade the BLUETOOTH 4.0 on the 17xr4? I think it comes with the
    "Dell wireless 380 bluetooth module" and my wifi car is the "Killer Wireless-N 1103 network adapter"

    Im trying to use my Bluetooth headphones Sony wh1000xm3 with the laptop but when it conects the mic and speakers through the same Bluetooth 4.0 it limits it to one channel and sound like crap, I have to disable the mic so I get 2 channel stereo audio. hope its an easy upgrade for our beautiful M17xr4's =)

    Swap the wifi card for something with BT 4.0, should be all there is too it. Only get Intel cards, if you want to hackintosh get a BC card.

    Most of us use the ax200 or ax1650 with mpcie to m.2 adapter.

    Of course that is a case by case basis though. Physical constraints being the obvious first concern.

    If successful youll have Bluetooth 5.0 and wifi 6 capabilities.
