(E6220) How will changing the DW1501 impact the DW375 BT module?
I have another E6220 I ended up getting once I found out how much the batteries and charger cost - which came with what I needed and an extra battery. This 2nd one has the DW1501 (BCM94313HMG2L) and DW375 BT module (BCM90270MD). The wireless card is giving me some trouble and I have a Intel 7260AC I can install from a failed laptop and fix the wireless once and for all. However, the Intel 7260AC has integrated Bluetooth while the DW375 is a dedicated module as the old Broadcom cards do not have integrated Bluetooth. I am still going to get the other one going, but this second one is worth keeping around.
I’m thinking the best way to deal with this is to change the DW1501 out and disconnect the DW375 module, unless both can coexist as the only way to fully get rid of it is to remove the bottom subframe. Would it be possible to leave the module installed, and just remove the driver so I can change the bad card out or would it be better to disconnect it and cover the wire with Kapton tape so it can’t cause issues? Eventually the module will be removed entirely, but I’m going to wait until I service the cooling system since it isn’t a 10 minute job. I can probably troubleshoot it, but the spotty 5GHz support is why I’m just going to replace it and not go too far with making it work. I also suspect it’s like the ath9k cards where they just do not work well in Windows 10.
