Wifi card module replacement

Hi, my wifi connection started to fail every few days and then it ended up not working at all. Doing some research it seems other Dell models have similar issues that usually get fixed by replacing the wifi module/card. After unscrewing the back of the computer I found that for this particular model (XPS 13 9365 2in1) the wifi card seems to be attached differently to other previous models, making it much harder to replace it. Any advice? Thanks

Hi Augustine, thanks for your comment. Indeed a picture would definitely help. Since I'm new to fixit and not sure how to add a photo, you can find a picture of the exact same thing I found in mine in this link:

Hi Albert,

Thanlsnfor your reply!

Could you please confirm your solution refers to the 9365 model, as I believe not all XPS 13 2 in 1 are exactly the same.

Thanks,

Agustin

The replacement process is a little involved but not technically difficult. Just follow this tutorial and everything will be fine!

1. Follow the guide to removing the base cover on the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1.

2. Look for the wireless card in the top right corner. If the battery is closest to you, the card should be a small rectangle with the Intel logo on it.

3. Unscrew the M1x6.5 screw on the holding bracket securing the wireless card to the chassis.

4. Carefully lift out the card and disconnect the antenna cable.

5. Connect the new wireless card to the antenna cable. The white cable in the white socket and black cable in the black socket.

6. Place the new card in place of the old one.

7. Place the securing bracket over the card and screw back into place.

8. Replace the base cover as directed in the above tutorial.

Once everything is back in place, boot the laptop and test the new wireless card. If it was a like-for-like swap, the existing driver will pick up the card and work as normal. If the replacement was an upgrade or a newer model, check the driver and update as necessary. Remove the old driver first in Device Manager and then install the new one. Don’t overwrite drivers as this can cause configuration issues.

That’s all there is to replacing the wireless card in the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1. Hope this info helps.
