Sony :: Upgrade Wireless Card On FW245

Jan 29, 2009

I have done a couple of searches and haven't found any answers. I have a Vaio FW245 (Best Buy Black Friday Special).

The wireless card (Intel 5100 wifi link) on this pc is a POS. The range is abysmal and it maxes out at 150mbps. I'd like to swap it out for a 5300 unit .....

HP/Compaq :: Wireless Card And Bluetooth Upgrade

Jul 10, 2009

I have a question concerning self-upgrading of the wireless card and bluetooth.

Long story short, I have a Lenovo T61 that has bluetooth and the Intel Next-Gen Wireless-N Mini-card. However, both the inverter and graphics card (nVidia quadro 140M) have failed. I have determined it is best to buy a new laptop.

I am planning to either buy a HP Pavilion dv6t or dv4t. However, I would like to know if it is possible to forgo getting bluetooth and the wireless-n card when I order this laptop and install these components myself as I already have them from my Lenovo T61. My Lenovo T61 is just going to collect dust, and I am willing to take it apart for the individual parts.

Is it worth the work? I believe I will not have problems taking apart the HP Pavilion and the Lenovo T61 as I am aware of the websites that show you how to take apart these models. But will the HP Pavilion motherboard support the wireless-n card and bluetooth if I originally did not order such components? Will the warranty be affected?

Additional information: I shall be buying the HP Pavilion from Costco.

Sony :: How Can I Enable My Dual Mode Of Video Card After Win 7 Upgrade

Mar 27, 2010

I recently acquire a VGN-SZ491N from ebay and since I don't really like Vista, so I wipe out the hard drive and install Windows 7 Ultimate from scratch. I followed the following steps and everything works fine except for the video card portion.

A. Install Windows 7
B. Install missing / unknown drivers
C. Reboot and install the utilities, in the following order:

1. Sony Utils DLL
2. Sony Shared Library
3. VAIO Event Service
4. Setting Utility Series

After Step C, I reboot my laptop and then able to install Nvidia driver and upgrade the video card from generic one to Nvidia at Speed mode.

But when I manually switch from speed to stigma, nothing happen, so I would like to know what should I do to enable the Intel video card portion and make it work in Windows 7.

Sony :: Stopping Wireless Static In SZ Series (after Upgraded Wireless)

Mar 20, 2010

if you have an older SZ and want to add a 3rd wire, this will show you how and where to put it.

So a while back I upgraded the the 4965AGN in my SZ750N to an Intel 5200, since that day, B&G has been noisy. I managed to arrange the antenna connections in such a way as to minimize it to within tolerable limits. I also talked to some experts and they said it wasn't going to hurt anything if there was a bit of static so I left it.

I have known for a while that is was the white antenna lead that was causing the static. Unfortunately disconnecting it caused a drop in signal. While working on my Windows 7 guide I had a problem and had to open the laptop. While doing so I noticed the white lead and the antenna it attached to. I hadn't ever really noticed where it sat before. Sony couldn't have hardly chosen a worse place for it.

Sony decided the best place for it, and I assume this is because they merely upgraded the old 2 wire wireless to 3 by adding this, is almost under the power button. Right next to... a speaker. The lead runs along a Speaker wire and puts the antenna right next to it. See pics 1 & 2................

Dell :: New Wireless Card

Aug 13, 2007

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.

Dell :: Wireless Card

Dec 26, 2008

Im about to order a Studio 15, there are 2 options on wireless Cards.

-- Intel WiFi Link 5100 802.11agn Half Mini-Card

-- Dell Wireless 1510 802.11 n half mini-card

The Intel card costs 10 bucks more and im likely going to get it just because of the low cost to upgrade, but just curious if theres a huge difference between the two.

Just upgraded my internet to 50mb and they'll be sending a new router with it -

Will the network card on my m1530 work with this?
In device manager its listed as an Intel pro 3945abg

If not, what card should i get and how easy are they to install (i'd prefer not having to use a dongle as most of the time I'm using all 3 usb ports)?

Dell :: Wireless Internet Card?

Mar 29, 2010

sorry in advance for what I'm sure is a rookie question...
My father has one of the Dell mini laptops.

He is in the hospital at the moment, and I'm wondering what kind of card/fob etc., if anything, is available to allow him to have wireless access (like 3G) to internet?

The hospital doesn't have any wireless available, nor do there appear to be any 'hotspots' accessable from the hospital, so looking for what I'd need to access a local internet service etc?

Dell :: 13z Wireless N Card Installed 3rd Serial

Dec 19, 2009

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 .....

Dell :: Upgrading My Mini-PCI Wireless Card

Jan 3, 2008

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?

Dell :: Wireless Card Blows The Connection

Sep 13, 2007

I have the 1505 with XP and the Intel wireless card....lately my connection blows!!

I don't know if it's because there are 3 of us on the wireless?

We have a linksys wireless router and I changed the channel to 11 just in case the neighbors (duplex) were on the same channel causing interference.

But still it will go very slowly sometimes the router is upstairs (desktop is up there) and i'm in a downstairs bedroom....it says I have a Low connection.

I called the cable company thinking it had something to do with that and it wasn't.

Is there anything I can do on my part to make it stronger possibly a program or refreshing an IP or messing with router settings?
