    • Do not pull up.

    • Open the display and press the power button for five seconds to drain any remaining charge from the system.

    • To reconnect each wire, align the connector carefully over its socket and press down firmly.

Thanks for the instructions on swapping out the WiFi module/chip, it looked pretty straightforward from what I could tell when I had the machine open, I just have a simple question for you.

I recently purchased an Intel Dual Band Wireless -AC 8265 Desktop Kit and I do NOT plan on using the external antenna, or mounting bracket that came with it, ONLY the chip in place of the one on the laptop.

So I wanted to know would the chip in that kit be useable in my Dell XPS 13 9343 model laptop? Everything looks to be about the same with this chip and the actual laptop model [except that the laptop one doesn’t come with the external antenna], so if I can use it that would save me shipping it back and then ordering again.

Thanks
