My Dell 1505 wireless N card is a constant headache, If I hide my ssid the card detects and connects to my router but I can never access the internet. It may work sometimes but most of the time my SSID has to be on.
I have tested this with two different routers and the results were the same, vista shows local access only . I have tried using drivers from laptopvideo2go and reimaging the computer, I am now fed up and want to get a new wifi car
I'm getting tired of the usb wireless adapter so I want to buy a PCI wireless card but the problem is, he don't have the cd installation, since it comes from a old laptop. How do I install the PCI card without the cd installation?
I have an xps gen2 that currently has an Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200BG wireless card inside. I've got no major complaints with it, it has always worked well and gets pretty good range but I'm looking to boost the range a bit. I see that the atheros cards get good reviews on the forums. My question is, would getting one of these cards boost my range? Many times the intel card will detect a network with a weak signal, but will not be able to actually connect to it. Can any of you suggest a good wireless card that would be compatible with my pc? Which atheros card should I buy? I just want to make sure its compatible. I recently went out of town and was trying to pick up a signal with the laptop, and I found over 10 networks but the card had trouble connecting with any of them. (most were showing 2 bars for signal strength)For the record I realize distance and obstructions limit the range of any card, but mine seems to lack the power to punch through, but works just fine at home and holds a 100% signal. I am trying to stay with the mini pci express cards that I can put inside the laptop instead of pcmcia cards.
I finally installed a new wireless card, so I don't have to use my usb wireless adapter. its working but there is something that I don't really like.... I only get 1 or 2 bars of signal (usb wireless: full signal) Average speed of wireless card 11Mbps (usb wireless: 54Mbps)
Anyone try out the Wireless N Atheros card from Gigabyte? I think it's pretty new. Having a hard time finding anything on it. If so, any comments? I just got a GN-WI01GT today for my M1710 and am already feeling like an upgrade.
Iv got the studio 17 and im considering getting a wireless 'N' capable router to stream HD content wirelessly to my laptop via my NAS. The only problem is id need a 'N' capable card in my laptop aswell.
Just looking at the Studio 17 laptops and I'm just wondering what the differences are between the wireless cards are?
The three I can select are: Dell Wireless 1510 Half Mini Card (802.11n) add £0.00 Intel WiFi Link 5300 Half Mini Card (802.11 a/g/n) (Centrino) [add £20.00] Intel WiFi Link 5100 (802.11 a/b/g/n 1X2) 1/2 MiniCard [Included in Price]
Ok so I have a replacement coming in form my old 1640. When I look at the build, it has the intel wifi 6200. My current system has the Intel 5300 with Wifi Link. What I want to know is if the 6200 is better than the 5300.
Dell offer the Wireless N option so I wondered if the 3rd aerial connection was built in but tucked away if you choose the Wireless G option only so in order to use it I'd have to open the back up to route it into the bay?
I have a 3rd aerial anyway bought from a 3rd party but of course the built in one (if available) would be a better choice for performance .....
Right now I have a Intel Pro 2200 wireless card. It only has wireless B. I can get a 3945 card for $12.50 shipped that has wireless G and B, or an Atheros card. I'm not sure what the whole wireless "N" thing is, so maybe someone could fill me in on that. Right now I only need the "G" capabilities as far as as I know. Is the Intel Pro 3945 the best bang for the buck? I see theres also a a 4945, but its almost double the price of the 3945. And as I mentioned above, I see Atheros cards, but I'm not sure how good they are. Do they have better wireless pick-up then the actual Intel cards?
I just bought a Dell Inspiron 1420 from my colleague..my first impression was, this is a great laptop..
Due to some problem with its internal wireless device, I decide to buy a DLink DWL-AG660 wireless cardbus adapter from the net..
When the card arrived, I try to install it & unfortunately, it cant fit in...I google the net & just found out that the AG660 is using a 32 bit pcmcia card bus adapter & my inspiron 1420 is equipped with (maybe) an express card slot..
Looking for some comments on the Dell Wireless 1510 802.11n Half Mini-Card (wireless card). Could someone tell me it's effectiveness? As a college freshman I'd like a decent card but the XPS 13 is only offering that one.
