    Just curious if Intel ever made a 3 wire antenna adapter in AC that will fit in my NP5160 Sager.

    @Steve40th no Intel, but there is Broadcom BCD94360 also sold as AW-CB160H.

    Looking to squeeze the last bit of wifi I can before retiring this laptop. Currently has Intel 7260 AC adapter.

    Yea, maybe I should just suck it up and wait for AX to be worth buying.. Maybe they will have an adapter for my old laptop...

    @Steve40th you can use AX200 if this adapter fits. Note that you'll also need MHF4 adapters for antennas or new antennas. Regardless, 802.11ax AX200 + minipcie-m.2 adapter + antenna adapters or new antennas will likely cost less that $20 - much less than any 3x3 802.11ac setup you could possibly conceive.
