Dell :: WIFI Card And Antenna Cables In Latitude E Series

Sep 3, 2009

I have ordered E6400 but I have choosen Intel 5100 wifi card with two antenna port. I heard that this model isn't very good so I'm thinking about the upgrade to Intel 5300 with 3 antenna ports. I have a question about the antenna cables. How many cables are there near the wifi card in latitude with 5100? two or three? If there are only 2 cables, so the upgrade brings me no advantage.

Acer :: Fitting A Wifi Antenna

Jun 11, 2009

I'm upgrading my friends TM2200, and installing a Wifi card and antenna. The antenna needs to go inside the laptop cover (as you probably know), but there's a foil sheet inside behind the LCD screen.

Can anyone tell me if I just stick the antenna pads onto the foil, or do I need to remove small sections of the foil and stick them to the plastic?

It's a Tyco antenna I'm fitting.

Acer :: 1810T Installing Intel Wifi Link 5300's Third Antenna

Apr 30, 2010

I want to replace my 1810T's Intel Wifi Link 5100 with an Intel Wifi Link 5300.

The 5100 has two antenna connectors and so the 1810T has two antennas already installed in it.

I purchased a third antenna, but I don't want to disassemble the screen to add the third antenna next to the two stock antennas.

Can I just place the third antenna here (empty area next to mini PCIe slot):

Dell :: Adding External Antenna To Xps M1710 Internal Wireless Card

Mar 23, 2009

This is what I am working with:

Computer rig:
Dell XPS M1710 Review (pics, specs)

Wireless card intel specs:

And I think this is the external antenna I would like to get (would love any suggestions):
5 dBi Magnetic Mount Omni Antenna - Omnidirectional Antennas for 2.4GHz - Antennas - Fleeman, Anderson & Bird, Corp.

The pdf says the wireless card antenna is, "Hirose* U.FL-R-SMT mates with cable connector U.FL-LP-066"

So basically is all I have to do is buy one of these, 4 inches U.FL Pigtail:U.FL to MMCX WiFi 2.4GHz 802.11g - eBay (item 160119011606 end time Apr-09-09 01:58:22 PDT)

Drill a hole in my laptop case and install one of these connected to the first adapter that is connected directly to the card:
MMCX to N-Male, Pigtail 19" 100-Series - CA-MMNMCN19

Now the n-female from the antenna can then connect to the now adapted laptop wireless external antenna?

I am presenting all of this as a question because I think this is what I need to do but I would like to double check with some knowledgeable people first that this can work, is feasible, will bring desired results (increased range) etc.

Dell :: Adding An External "rod" WiFi Antenna To An E1505?

Jan 15, 2009

I was upgrading the graphics card and the plastic lid on my e1505, I had to disconnect the WLAN antenna connectors, and this gave me a chance to see how the antenna is connected to the card.

It got me thinking...Instead of having a wire antenna run up the side of the LCD screen, what about buying a better-quality (higher reception) "rod antenna" with a folding elbow hinge? I thought since the WLAN card is seated so close to the right side of the laptop case..

it would be possible to connect the two pigtail connectors to the WLAN card as normal then drill a small hole through the casing on the side of the laptop casing where the card is, run a few centimeters of the wires through it, and mount the antenna flush to the side of the laptop case (with either screws or maybe even super glue, if you could find a good spot where it wouldn't block any inputs/seams)...............................

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X230 - Incompatible WiFi Card Despite Correct FRU

Dec 23, 2009

Trying to upgrade my wifi card.  The machine originally came with Centrino 2200 card.  I wanted to upgrade to Centrino 6205.  I thought that all I had to do was ensure that I get a card that has a known/authorized FRU, as per the X230 FRU List.  So I picked a card with FRU 60Y3253, but upon installing it, I get the all familiar "1802: Unauthorized Network Card" error.  Why?  What else am I missing?
Images of said card:

X230, W7 64-bit

Dell :: The Intel 5300 Wifi Card

May 25, 2009

So, I have just ordered the M1330, and it comes with the 1505. When I asked the dell rep about the 5300, he said it was not compatible with the M1330 due to the motherboard or something?

However, I've read that some people have made the switch, my questions are as follows:

How hard is it to change wifi cards for a noob?
Will this void my warranty?
What are specific gains?
My brother has an M1330,
the internet some times.

Dell :: Replacing XPS 1640 WiFi Card

Aug 29, 2009

Over in the Wireless section I was told that my constant connection drops in Windows 7 are likely just due to the card (Intel 5100) and to replace it with something that isn't Intel. My question is, what is the best card out there to replace my current one that will support a Belkin N router AND fit in my computer? As I have almost no knowledge of Wireless cards I have no idea what the slot is even called that it fits into. Could someone point me in the right direction? Does anyone know about this card

Dell Latitude D630 :: WiFi Network Recognition

I have a Dell D630 Latitude laptop that connects to most Wifi Networks, but NOT my home network.In fact, It doesn't even show the network when I pull up area networks. It doesn't show any networks at all. However, when I take it to a Starbucks or McDonalds, I can not only find a network, but I can get on the Internet just fine !Do I have something blocking the network from being seen? Is my virus program Microsoft Essentials blocking the network for some reason?

Apple :: Wifi Card In MBP

Feb 8, 2009

I was wondering what wifi card is in the MBP. I am speaking of the newest MBPs which have the Nvidia cards and the Intel CPU (late '08 and current '09 versions).

Also, do you think it is worth it to install a Linux OS on it? I think a dual boot of Mac OS and Linux would be interesting. But, does Linux work on it?

I found this:

I think I have also read of the MBP being able to run Ubuntu as well. The wifi card is one of the few issues? But, which wifi card is in there?

Thanks for any info. I was just curious about the MBP. I also have read of Red Hat wanting to have a Linux OS made especially for the Mac. Not sure if there's any progress with that, though.
