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.
My WLAN 802.11g connection died yesterday when I was at the university and even after uninstalling and updating the drivers it's not waking up.
I have a D-Link DWA-140 USB adapter which work quite well still with 802.11n (though there are some trouble to get a connection when first starting up the laptop) but the "g" part of the wireless card seems completely dead.
I have looked at the bottom of the laptop and got a clue where the WLAN card could be because of the symbols, but I need to know what card I should get to replace the faulty one? Because I have to replace it right?
My Hp laptop is: HP Pavilion dv5-1264eo Entertainment Notebook PC (NG169EA) Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN Product Specifications: LINK
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?
im having a problem with my 1525 inspiron laptop, which i have had for a couple of years. The problem started when installed windows 7. My wireless minicard stops working anytime i try playing an online game. The mouse starts freezing and then the wireless card would stop working. The only way can it working again is to reboot the laptop or put it to sleep the start it up again.
I'm thinking about picking up a usb wireless n adapter; which means I won't be needing the internal wireless nic. Since that's a mini PCIe slot, I was wondering if anyone has tried replacing that with one of the many SSDs floating around the web...
2 main questions I have about those:
If they're mini-pciE, why are there sata versions and pata versions out there? There's no sata or pata connector on these cards it seems, the pci-e connector is all there is. Do they somehow use the sata/pata controller on the motherboard via the pci-e bus?
2nd question; would there be any way to boot from one of these? The bios has a bunch of options for booting up, network, usb, usb floppy, etc... but none for mini pci-e or anything like that...
Laptop is a presario C500, more precisely c551nr, broadcom 802.11b/g nic, 80gb toshiba 5400rpm slow ..... hard drive, and a celery 440 running the show..
does anybody know if there is some way to set F1 to F6 as function keys and F7 to F12 as multimedia keys at the same time?
This would solve all my problems as I only really use F1 to F6 in windows and would like to be able to use the multimedia keys at the same time without having to change the function key behaviour in windows mobility center.
The only options so far are to set the entire function key row to either multimedia or function key first
For a while now, my wireless has been cutting in and out and sometimes takes about a half hour to an hour to be able to connect again. Other laptops in the house connect to the same internet connection just fine. I met a girl last night who was saying how her internet wont connect anymore and she had the same laptop as me so I'm assuming its the computer and not the internet.
even before this issue though, the wireless networks window, when you click on the two computers to see the different connections, it always freezes to a white window to begin with and will take up til an hour to actually show the different connections.
This problem is incredibly annoying and i just want a solid internet connection without it cutting out .
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
Is there any Wireless-N mini PCI cards which will work in the Dell 9200? If so, would I have to add a third antenna to make it work? Are there any walk through's or HOW TO's for this kind of upgrade, I've googled and there very little on this.
My trusty m1210 is still going strong. I just got a Netgear WNDR3700 router, so I wanted to upgrade my wifi card. Will any mini card work? I know the Dell 1500 & 1505 as well as the Intel 4965 work. But what about the Intel Ultimate-N 6300? Are there any limitations of my laptop that would prevent ANY mini card from working? BTW
just received a Dell 5530 WWAN Mobile Broadband HSDPA KM266 PCIe mini-card which bought from a vendor on ebay today
Owning an XPS M1330, it took a little trial & error finding compatible drivers and the appropriate SW, but I managed it by feeding Dell's website with various Notebook models in order to get to said drivers & SW.
The SW (Ericsson) came from the Dell Mini 9 section (because the ebay vendor told me that's where he got the card in the first place):

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?
