    I have a Asus R510CA_RB51 laptop running Win 10.
    I would like to replace my internal WiFi card so that I can take advantage of 5mp speeds.
    Could you recommend any that would be compatible on my Asus R510CA_RB51 laptop?

    Thanks,
    Jon

    You may not have the antenna needed for 5 g built in.

    That is not the issue. The internal WiFi card supports only single channel 802.11n. To take advantage of my dual channel router it needs to support 802.11ac. It needs a new card or an external USB card to do the 5mp thing by supporting 802.11ac.
    I would much prefer to replace my internal WiFi card than to rely on an external WiFi doggle.

    Thanks,
    Jon
