What mini pci WIFI card can I use in my Acer Aspire L310?

Got mine without WIFI and would like to add it now, Having some trouble getting info and the P/N from Acer. Only need 'G'.
Will any mini pci WIFI card work or is there any issue that might require a specific card. I did find out that Acer uses an Intel card.
Acer gave me a P/N and the cost $4.00, sounds great but I don't think it's the P/N for the card, maybe the anteana!
Any help or general direction I might use to find this info is appriaciated.
Thanks,
Dave

    This small form factor desktop has no bays at all. The connection for the anteana fits a small hole in the back of the computer. I was wondering if the card and the anteana connection will match up?

    I haven't been able to find any mini pci cards where I live, will have to order one and would like to confirm that everything fits before I do it.

    Acer has refused to be of any help what so ever. Needless to say this will be the last Acer product I'll ever buy. I like the computer but not the service.



    Thanks,

    Dave

This laptop has 1 mini card slot for optional wireless LAN (selected models) just choose any decent aftermarket wireless g card and it will work , givin it's drivers are installed correctly and the laptop is set to autoconfigure the wi-fi. Most are set like this by default.
you also have a port for rj-45 , so having a 6ft network cable would be handy if you were sonewhere like a hotel which had free internet but no wireless.

I have an older emachine desktop without wi-fi


You can buy a WIFI card that installs into the PCI slots on your MB, or you can buy WIFI USB cards that are equally as powerful. Just be sure to buy the correct WIFI Product that is suitable with the WIFI signal you are trying to get on, i.e. 802.11 B, G, and N. Hope this helps. I installed a TP-Link WIFI PCI card in my 8 year old Acer Aspire T650 and it works great. Good luck.

Can I install wifi card on M5641?


According to the Acer Support web site for your desktop computer you should have one or two free PCI slots that could be used if you decide to add a wireless lan card.

The alternative would be get a USB wireless adapter that wouldn't need you to open the computer case and have the advantage that you could plug the adapter in to a USB extension cable and position the wireless adapter to maximise the wireless signal.

Can i add a serial port to this acer L310


There's no place to install an internal card to add serial ports, but you can use a serial-to-USB adapter. These are available online and possibly at a retail computer store if there is one near you. It has a USB plug on the computer end and the DB-9 serial connector on the other end for your serial device.

Aspire L310 Desktop: can acer aspire L310 desktop work with win xp and ...


Yes. I am currently updating an Acer Aspire L310 (lunchbox format) desktop.

Many of the drivers are contained on the XP installation disk and will automatically be installed when you install XP.

Other Drivers:

Assuming your L310 has the same hardware (may not), you can use the following Hardware detail to locate the drivers by typing in the hardware model into a search engine like Bing.

NIC - Marvell Yukon 88e8056 PCI-e GB; this driver can be downloaded from www.cnet.com. On this website, just type in the model info and it will direct you to the driver download.

Wireless NIC - Broadcom 802.11g; download from www.cnet.com

Display/motherboard chipset - Once you have installed XP and the NIC driver, go to www.intel.com and click on the "downloads/support" option. The website provides an autodetect utility that will identify your hardware and provide updated drivers.

Audio - go to Realtek website and select "downloads". Download/install the high definition audio driver for XP.

Once you are up and running with XP, run the Microsoft Windows Update utility and it will find updates for many of the essential drivers.

...hope this info helps

Is the acer as5517 series laptop using a pci express card for the internal wireeless card


The Acer, as with lots of other laptops uses a smaller, card interface called "Half Size Mini PCI". This is much smaller than the desktop specification PCI or PCI Express and is specific to laptop hardware.

I looked at a spare parts website to find you a part number and came up with this. Use this information to find a similar part based on your country.

Compatible Hardware: Aspire 5517 series (AS5517-5700, AS5517-5997)
Wireless Card details: Atheros AR5B95-H half size mini PCI wireless network card (Dual mode 802.11b/g)

Hi

I'm not sure, please open the computer case and see if there is a free pci slot.

Note that opening the computer might void warranty.

Also, you would do fine with a USB Wifi adapter. cost around the same if not cheaper.

Thanks and good luck,
let me know if you need anything else.

I have an acer aspire desk top computer can i put a wireless card in it


The mini Acer uses a "small form factor" (SFF) and doesn't have room inside the case for standard expansion cards. These systems were not intended to be opened and worked on. You can still use a USB wireless adapter, though. Simply plug the adapter into an available USB connection on the rear panel, follow the adapter manufacturer's installation instructions, and you will have wireless capability.

Acer Aspire Mini PC


Hi, you will be able to purchase a mini ATX format board by almost any manufacturer that will fit the acer case, the only problem you may hve is the PCI and Graphics cards will need to be low profile standards but these are also available if you are not planning on gaming then the on board graphics on most new boards will do all you ask of them.
