Can I replace the Broadcom WiFi card with a more recent Intel one?

This iMac runs up to El Capitan, but is a quite outdated OS and out of support. So I Installed Linux instead.

However, the Broadcom BCM4321 802.11a/b/g/n has proprietary drivers and is quite hard to configure on many distros.

So, I'd like to know if it's possible to swap this card for a more generic and recent Intel one (ex: Intel 9560NGW)?

Is this a proprietary connection so an adapter is needed?

Sorry, the interface is not the same between the Broadcom and the Intel boards. The other question was dealing with the different Broadcom series.

The more effective solution is just using a external Ethernet to WiFI unit.

I'm not sure if this is possible, but it might be worth checking out this similar question. It seems like it may technically be possible, but there is not a lot of information about how to do it online, so it seems like if it is possible it would require a lot of experimentation and research. It might be easier to force install a later version of macOS on that model, like Mojave or Catalina. There is more documentation available for that kind of thing online. For example, check out this article. Good luck!
