Antenna is in the lid - it's possible it would affect the signal when close.
It's highly possible that your wifi switch to low power when the lid is closed.

I want to inform the readers that I was able to install the Intel 9260NGW (NGFF or M.2) Network Card on Mobo of my ASUS ROG G751. I bought this one from AliExpress.
The only issue is that I cannot connect to the 5Ghz networks as it says "Unable to connect" every time. I don't know if that's specific to 9260 chips and ASUS G751 or the particular piece I have bought. Nevertheless, the Wi-Fi range is greatly reduced and I can see Wi-Fi networks for my whole building. 😛
The Bluetooth also gets superior.
This is to inform that 9260NGW is supported in ASUS G751 which was replaced by 7260NGW.
Be aware of the 5 GHz issue I have mentioned. If anyone has any suggestion for this, do tell. 🙂
