I recently upgraded to the and I get better signal, BUT Wireless boosters are a touch-and-go kind of thing. Message 5 of 8. Precision M M M M It was pretty easy. About the metal lid, that’s a nice stroke of luck that the computer had such an aftermarket replacement part. The does not seem to be a step up at all, unless you need to have a laptop with 2 embedded antennas.

You mentioned that your drivers are fully up to date. And you know what? The only thing is that the card has 3 antenna sockets and the dv5 has only two antennas. IMO, you already have the better of any of the wireless cards that you can install in your PC. wirelrss

New and High Quality. I recently gave an older laptop with a ag wireless card a new OEM metal cover “lid” that I bought on eBay. I attached a 3rd antenna wire and ran it out of the laptop, so I could use it as a “user controlled” aerial antenna.

I ended up completely removing all of the wireless software and drivers. They can be found by clicking on the card in the device manager, lino on the advanced tab.

You can try a different card listed in the manual if you want. I went ahead and downloaded the full software package and installed it. Meanwhile, I bought a used Intel Wifi Link card.

I find that I rarely get dropped if I have 5 bars. Have you heard of any notable improvements going that route? Please provide a valid price range. The signal appeared to be more reliable.
