if the Intel Ultimate-N 5300 Wireless Wifi Link Card will work on my Dell XPS M1530 laptop?
I currently use the Intel 4965A AGN so i have the 3 antennas connected to it, But i can't find any confirmation that the 5300 will work with the M1530. I see that it says it's for the Centrino 2 but i don't know if it's for a certain motherboard or chipset.
I just recently reinstalled Vista on my VGN-SZ650n/c. The issue now is that when I go to make changes to the network adaptor they wont keep. When I reboot, the settings revert back to what they were befor I made changes.
I've spent half an hour searching and still haven't found the answer. I'm set to order a Studio XPS 16, but am stuck on the wireless card. There are two Intel 5300 cards listed, a mini and a half-mini.
The half mini says it has "MyWiFi". That's not listed on the mini card

I just picked up a Latitude E6500 from the outlet, and it only comes with B wireless. People on the forum have mentioned that the E6500 has 3 Mini PCIe slots. One is full length and has 3 antenna connections, one is half length with 2, and one is half length with 1 (for Bluetooth).
I'm planning on upgrading with an Intel 5300 wifi card, it's amazing how cheap they are on eBay. The 5300 comes in two configurations, full and half, but it's a 3x3 antenna, so it'll have to go in my full length slot.
However, most of the listings seem to be for half, and they cost the same. I figure I might as well get the cheaper half length card that also saves .5 ounces of weight if it'll fit in the slot, and the antenna wires will reach. Does anyone know if this would work, or do I need to find one of the full length cards?
Just recieved my intel 5300 wifi card ready for the upgrade.
Upgrade physically went semi well, the 4965agn that was fitted was a devil to get out.
Seems like acer decided to get superman to tighten the two screws that hold the wifi card down. In the end the only solution was to remove the 2 pillers from the pcb(with pliers and brute force) and remove the card.
Windows xp fired up fine, no wifi connected popup. drivers were my first thought.
Checked device manager, code 10 on the device. tried new drivers, old driver sets, no progress.
Also there was a few links about the pcie 2 and pcie 1 compatiblity problems. But a pcie2 card should run at the pcie1 speeds when fitted to that slot, so that shouldnt be the problem.
Ive ordered a 2nd intel 5300, one that should be 'more' compatible..we will see. will post update on that when it arrives.
as of this point id say that the intel wifi 5300 does not play well with the acer 6920g.
is theire an possible option to get an Intel 7260HMW card (wireless AC)Â up and running on Lenovo T430 - Type: 2350-1B6 - Bios: G1ETA5WW (2.65 ). I runs on failure on boot, assuming this is related to the BIOS, but i use the newest one.
The DV5T seemed to be working pretty well for me and no real wireless issues.
What has happened is that since I upgraded to Windows 7 and the new drivers, I get some hitching, rubberbanding in games, slow speeds at times, etc.
Now I know Windows 7 is pretty rock solid and the new drivers came from the HP site.
But when I started googling, seems TONS of people have issues with the 5100 card and maybe I was just lucky before.
At first I noticed my card speed goes from ~50 MBPS to max of 130 MBPS. After reading, it seems even though my router supports 40ghz dual channel yadda yadda, the card only goes to 2.4 so it can't really run at 40ghz is my understanding and that 130 MBPS is pretty much the cap.
That said, it was that way before the Win 7 upgrade so that shouldn't change anything.
One thing I noticed is that in my device driver before the upgrade, it was a normal 5100 but now with the drivers, I see a 5100 AGN.
I can't find how the AGN and non-AGN versions differ?
Could it be I have AGN drivers for a non-AGN card?
Lastly, is this wireless card removable and upgradable or can I use the slot (empty) that I have for another card and disable the wireless 5100 through BIOS?
i would like to upgrade my video card, if it is possible and if it is worth it. my 1720 has the mobile intel 965 express chipset family. ive seen sigs (dr650se and someformofhuman) stating that they have the nvidia 8600m gt and was wondering if this is compatible with my 1720.
also i found out through this forum that i can upgrade my cpu (which is the measly t5450 1.66 ghz) to the beastly t9300, and add a 2nd hard drive (which is my first step in upgrading this dell because i only have a 160 gb drive).
i was looking for a new laptop until i came across this forum and found out the possibilities of my dell. i decided to stick with this and just upgrade it! thanks for the insight, and thanks in advance for all the help that i will be asking for!
I have seen at least one thread where someone mentioned that they had swapped out the Intel 5100 wireless card in their Z for a 5300. I have a router that can take advantage of it so I think I might want to try the same thing. I downloaded the service manual that was put up on the boards and I can handle getting to the wireless card.
I'm looking to upgrade my E6400 to an intel 5300 card. Do I have to buy a card that is programed specificly for a Dell computer, or will any one work? In shopping around I see that some say Dell only, or HP/IBM only.
How about the ones on e-bay, have users had good luck with those? For some reason I'm wary of those sellers. Of course I know I can buy one from Dell, but I'm trying to save a few bucks if I can
