    Guys,
    What's the clips for the 17 r4 wifi card, I think it's a 8265, I have a damaged one on the laptop.

    It's the gold part that clips onto the wifi card

    Thanks all

    If it's broken off inside the antenna cable then you will need to fish it out with a pair of tweezers or a pin and replace the WiFi card.

    I think this might be the first instance of this happening on an Intel card I have seen. It happens constantly on the older Killer models though.

    It was on a laptop i bought, somebody had sheered off the 2 little golden connectors , the wifi card is intact :(

    From reading i needed a NGFF clip connector

    If i understood your problem (pictures are worth a thousand words...) you don't need a NGFF connector but rather an MHF-4 mini coaxial connector (ex: https://www.i-pex.com/product/mhf-4)

    The NGFF connector type is the slot like connector where the Wifi card is connected to

    NGFF: (this is not the connector you are looking for. Read it Obi-Wan style)
