Re: Time to update everything WiFi

My Zenbook UX32VD's Centrino-N 6235... Consider an Intel 3165 (dual-band AC+BT). The Centrino-N 6235 is a 2x2 dual band ABGN+BT half mini PCIe M.2 card. The 7260 and 3160 look similar. Which would be the easiest drop-in replacement? https://ark.intel.com/products/family/59484/Intel-Wireless-Products

It's not just the app. Yahoo! fantasy football does allow you to edit and save lineups for future weeks. HOWEVER, any time that you add a player, your lineups for all future weeks are set back to match your current week's lineup. :(
