I had to replace my N5105 router (long story short, a bad - shorted - HDMI cable burned out my processor or at least the graphic chip) in which I had an AR9485 (ath9k) mini-pcie card which worked fine for years.
I bought another N5105 based router which no longer has a Mini PCIe slot but has M.2 PCIe slots.
I have a lot of old Intel M.2 card but it seems that I can't use them in AP mode.
What card should I by to replace it ?
My need is really minimalist, 2.4GHz only, and I plan to use it at very low power like the previous one (1mW) to cover the area around my router for my IoT devices.
But I don't want to add another AP (no more power outlets, no more network cable, no more mess) for this really small need.
I don't need AX or AC 5GHz (I was able to find a lot of information on these cards on the forum) 2.4Ghz N only ... and of course cheap
it would be perfect if it could have the same antenna connector as the previous one (mhf1 instead of mhf4 on the most recent cards)
Thanks in advance
