Hi

I Have an "Acer Aspire 59206 – 6A4G25Mi" with a "Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Mini-PCI-E" card, installed from new, I'm wanting to upgrade the card to one that supports wireless N, but am unable to find any information about appropriate cards, I've already contacted Acer support and they had no idea (Great)

So if anyone can help that would be great

Cheers

Hello LifeOfBrian,

I am sorry for the inconvenience.

Please note that wireless hardware installation and use is subject to regulatory approval; therefore, only your system manufacturer is entitled to provide the list of validated adapters that are compatible with your system.

In this case since you have a laptop, and besides the above, I can only recommend a self-contained adapter, such as USB-WiFi adapter.
