Wanted: Wireless Mini-PCIe 802.11n card

As per title, I'm looking for an upgrade to my wireless card on my laptop.

The current one I have will only go to 802.11g (54Mb/s), I want to upgrade to 802.11n (300Mb/s)

If your laptop has one, but you don't have a wireless-n router, I'll happily swap, otherwise it needs to be under £10 inc del, as I can get one from Hong Kong for £8.99, but I'd rather source it here :)
Shipping/Payment:
Can pay via PayPal or BT

Probably isn't of interest to you, but I bought one of these, ebay item no 200415440606
it's an Intel WifiLink 5300, which is one of the best 802.11n cards you can get at the moment, with true 3x3 MIMO and a better SNR than other cards. it's £13.95 from that guy which is a steal, but it was from mainland china and did take forever to arrive.

How about one of these instead of a card. Seems a good deal for the price.

DigiGuru where have you seen these to buy from hong kong. My old laptop does'nt have built in wireless but it has the door to fit it as some of the dearer models came with it at the time. I've been looking for one for ages to fit.
Thank You

I have a Brand New Apple one if you are interested?

Omnid, can you get me the details of the card so that I can ensure there are Windows 7 drivers for it?

Cheers

I don't want a USB adaptor, as I have a habit of breaking them!

It is a MB988ZM/A

and there should definitely be drivers because my MacBookPro has the same card and has boot camp windows 7 and it works so you should be fine. It really is high spec so don't want to give it away and it is new too

surely you need all the correct wiring for some of the newer cards? older ones just used one wire then newer ones used 2?

dont forget these are pci express for for newer lappys?

Im sure the 3 x 3 mimo uses 3 aerials?
#12
yes it does need 3 ariel but will operate with 2. the 3x3 actually gives a maximum speed of 450mbs but i'm not sure if there are any compatible routers available yet.

and anything with a mini pci express slot is compatible, if your laptop already has wireless built in then it is almost certainly via a card in this slot, but if it's more than a couple of years old then it's probably the older version mini pci, not express, so you'd need a card that was compatible
#13
Yes, although you don't have to have all 3 connected.... I have 2 wires currently

Omnid, how much do you want for it?
#14
Cheapest I can find is 39 inc for an exdemo one at Kikatek

So how does 35 inc sound?

Thanks
#15
Sounds far too expensive for what I'm after, I can get an Intel based card for £15 delivered from the UK
