Thank you for the link but this model only support dual band 802.11n wifi , not 802.11ac wifi.

By searching with google, I can't find any model that support this feature for XP... :blink:

Oh, didn't realize you said AC. As far as I know, nothing that supports XP supports AC.

Well, except maybe this, but it's not a PCI-E card

If you insist on internal adapter, PCI-E slots have USB pins (usually), so you can just solder that one directly to these pins.

You may have to source the +5V from elsewhere though, if the adapter doesn't work with 3.3V.

Thank you again but I'am playing with a ZOTAC ZBOX EN760 and inside the machine there is an Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160 mini-PCI Express card.

As there is no XP driver for this model, I'am just searching for a replacement. :rolleyes:

Thank you for the informations but I don't have the knowledge for doing that. :unsure:

I just bought AR5B22 adapter. According to the seller there are XP drivers for WiFi adapter. But, I do not have a solid proof there are XP drivers for Bluetooth.

As for the Realtek RTL8821AE, I was able to get it working with XP in Asus EEE PC X101CH. However, I found no XP driver for Bluetoth, as well.

Both these Adapters are dual band with integrated Bluetooth. I bought half size mini PCI-E versions.
