Hi - looks like my Toshiba Satellite L755 has a wifi card that is failing - can I get either a direct BCN replacement or perhaps an wifi BCN-AC ?

Do a search on ebay for a wifi card for your model. If nothing comes up, you should be able to use a standard mini pci WiFi card like this https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA4RE5N60455&ignorebbr=1&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleMKP-PC&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleMKP-PC-_-pla-_-Network+-+Wireless+Adapters-_-9SIA4RE5N60455&gclid=Cj0KCQjwprbPBRCHARIsAF_7gDYQpj2eVvDRKWpQ7jl2--kBVy3NGOoQDMY9hTQpwg_Ai3H58Qrp7yIaAtw0EALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds There is a bit of a catch, some laptop models restrict in the BIOS the model of card that will be detected to work properly, that is not very common though so you have a good chance that any card will work. You'll just have to download the drivers for it.
