What WiFi bluetooth card to upgrade my 2011 MacBook Air?

What WiFi bluetooth card to upgrade my mid-2011 macBook Air? wifi card to be able to connect to 802.11 AC? My hopes are to enable Apple Watch unlock along with continuity and handoff under High Sierra. Anyone try this would this work? Are the antenna wire long enough to reach the new card? Are extensions available if not?

Would this be the correct part# BCM94360CS2?

Thanks for the help guys.

Yes, it will work. Make sure you get a dual-band card and purchase extensions just in case. Below is a replacement guide.

That is indeed the correct part number, no extensions should be needed. Look in the guide I posted earlier to help you replace/reassemble your laptop after completing the replacement. Good luck!

Thanks, That card is a different number and looks different is that the 2012 card? I think I need a mid-2013 or newer card to use Apple Watch unlock feature. Which is why I was looking at BCM94360CS2. Also, . where do I find the extensions?

I don't see a link to the extension cables you mentioned in your comment or the guide. I know I found a set last week, but I can't find it now. Can you help me out with finding them or what I should be searching for, please? thanks!

Hey Jorge,

Did you do this yet?

I'm waiting for my BCM94360CS2 to come in the post.

I believe one of the antennas will be too short. you'll have to reroute it.

Regards,

Stephan
