Upgraded WiFi mini-PCIe cards for Turris Omnia

I’m looking to upgrade the WiFi cards for my Turris Omnia, but all I can find on the forum is old threads for the pre-production hardware.

Thanks @martinu . I hadn’t seen that video, it’s a very interesting presentation for any Omnia owner :slight_smile:
