Hi, I have a question about the compatibility of the Acer Aspire R3-131T with the Intel Wireless AC 9560 wifi card mini pcie chipset. I am wondering if the wifi card can work with this laptop. The old wifi card is the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165. Thanks for helping me with this issue!

Take note that you may need another antenna for it, depending on what antenna is in your current laptop.

The 3165 uses a 1x1 antenna setup.

The 9560 uses a 2x2.

If your laptop comes with a 1x1 antenna setup, you'll also need another antenna set unless the 9560 comes with it's own.
