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?
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.
When I put the brand new Intel Wireless-AC7260 WLAN Card into Acer Aspire V3-471G, it got problems. It unable to go BIOS, keyboard hang (Unable to type), it crash the Windows 7 and 8.1. Is it possible to upgrade to Intel Wireless AC-7260 WLAN Card into the Acer Aspire V3-471G. My Acer Aspire V3-471G Configurations, Intel Core i5 3230M 2.60Ghz, 8GB RAM, 2GB NVIDIA GeForce 710M, Windows 8 (Downgraded To Windows 7).
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..
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
Hi. This is my first post and I am a self confessed novice, so I apologise if my question has been covered elsewhere (I tried a Search but couldn't see anything specific to my question).
I have a Dell XPS 1330, with a Intel Pro/Wireless 3945ABG adapter installed (as part of teh orginal build by Dell). The processor is an Intel Core 2 Duo T7250 2.00GHz Level 6 Revision 3853.
I have recently upgraded my home Wireless Router to a Netgear WNDR 3700, which is Draft N and Dual Band. I would now like to upgrade the adapter in my XPS1330 to take advantage of the N draft and Dual Band router.
Is this possible? If so, what new wireless card would you recommend which will be compatable with 1330.
My E1705 originally came with the X1400. I upgraded the card to a 7900GS I purchased from a member here.
Well - It's time again to clean the HSF. I figured while I was at it, why not upgrade video card.
With my system still under warranty, I contacted Dell chat and stated that my X1400 was running very hot and artifacting (which it was before I switched to the 7900GS). They said that my video card was working too hard and I should upgrade - but also offered to send a replacement X1400.
The Tech stated that I should contact customer service and see if they would discount an upgraded card (subtract the price of the x1400 from a 512 card). He said I shouldn't have a problem.
1. Has anyone had any success with this? 2. Which card should I get?
I'm in St-Jean QC at the military base and just before comming here I ordered my Dell XPS M1530 in january and got it shortly after. It came with 4 gigs of ram, the centrino duo-core 2.20ghz processor and the 128 ati card.
I had some negative experiences with the customer service from dell the first month I had it but I decided to let it go and enjoy the unit.
Has anybody ever called dell and had the unit sent back and had the videocard/motherboard upgraded for the 256mb version? I don't know if this is possible, and I'd love to call dell but I won't be able to after July 17th when I move onto my next base.
i have a dell inspiron 1505 notebook. I bought it new about 1 year ago, i had it upgraded from dell with the 1.86 core 2 duo processor 1 gb of ram and a 128 ati x1300 mobility graphics card. 1 year ago most games only required a 128mb card which was fine, but now most seem to run on 256, there was a 256 option from dell for another 80 dollars on top of the other upgrade fee i already paid and i did not think it was necessary. So i know there is one out there. I have searched around on the internet for a while off and on and i can only find reviews of products i can not find any info on where you can actually buy an upgrade for this computer... I would like to get it upgraded to the 256 if it would not be too much. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
And also i play Battlefield 2142 occasionally and it had a freezing issue on the load screen so i dropped the graphic settings down a bit then it worked fine. But it has happened again, and i dropped the settings down as far as they can go with no luck it still does not work, and the EA tech told me to look for an update for my graphics card which i did and installed one that said it fixed "some gaming issues" but it did not fix the freezing issue.
I wanted to upgrade my wireless NIC but upon power up, error 105 appears - network device not supported
The original one I have is the broadcom wifi + bluetooth combo card, and I am intending to use an Intel card with 802.11ac capability and also has bluetooth onboard. Its also 2x2 so original the antenna connectors snap right in
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.
i am getting an acer travelmate 5720 which is coming with inbuilt graphics card..x3100 graphics accelerator..i was wonderin hw this graphics card is.. and one more question is whether i can upgrade the graphics card from the inbuilt to any better cards...
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
The standard graphics card is an Nvidia GeForce GT 330m, but the laptop's gaming performance could be higher with a 335m or even a 360m (for its premium price, I would like the ultimate machine if possible). How do these two other cards compare to the first in terms of size/motherboard compatibility/power drain? In other words, could I buy the Sony Vaio Z and successfully upgrade the graphics card aftermarket, and if I did so how would the new card(s) affect the laptop's battery life?
Are there any guides that would help me into the guts of the machine, and could I possibly proceed without voiding the warranty?
