Maybe BE201/BE401 can only support the core ultra 1st gen and later.

BE201 will definitely not work, it is CNVi and relies on support from the chipset/PCH.

 

If the slot can accept a regular PCIe card then there is a chance that the other cards will work, however that is not guaranteed since Dell is only shipping CNVi cards in that slot.  The prior-gen Precision 7X70 didn't even have a slot there, the AX201 was soldered directly to the motherboard, so I had sort of figured that Wi-Fi upgrades wouldn't be happening anymore...

At least, the 7x80 owner can upgrade their nic to ax411.

Ouch... how about the WWAN slot, will NVME wifi card work on it?  Since nvme ssd works with that wwan slot.

Yes, that's a regular PCIe slot, but there are a couple of caveats:

  • I think WWAN is B-key and WLAN is A/E-key, so you'd need an adapter.  There should be space for it since WWAN cards are larger than WLAN cards...
  • There may not be USB hooked up to that slot; if there is not, the Bluetooth part of the WLAN card that you put there will not work.

I am using a similar adapter on my single board computer, except that it converts M-key to E-key. It reroutes USB to an onboard port, which connects to the 9-pin USB header on motherboard to provide Bluetooth functionality.
