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.

Re: What mini pci WIFI card can I use in my Acer Aspire...
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.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Most manufacturer trained computer engineers know how motherboards work alongside the firmware and chosen software so there is no call for them.
Your Model of Aspire has a different battery release method, see attached pic on how to do it. This is a pic from your User Manual, you can download it from here Download Acer Aspire E1 572
Manual. I suspect that the information you have been given regarding battery removal and passwords refers to removing the cmos battery as in a PC in the hope that it will clear Bios activated passwords.
Without knowing what the desktop computer motherboard is, I\'d only be guessing as to location of Wi-Fi chipset. However even if I knew the motherboard manufacturer name, and model number; the point is Moot.
A) You remove that Wi-Fi chip, and kiss the motherboard goodbye. It\'s designed into the circuitry of the motherboard.
Isn\'t going to be jumper wires taking it\'s place, and making connections to circuit traces on the motherboard.
B) Do you have a wireless router? Dunno. Do you have a wireless connection set up? No.
You can use just a LAN connection. (Hard wired)
C) Suggest if having a Bluetooth option on your motherboard is not an option then use a different motherboard that doesn\'t have that option.
The Acer Aspire is a high-performance laptop that includes a fast processor, widescreen display and an internal wireless card. In addition to these premium features, certain models also include one-touch Bluetooth access. If you have an Acer, enabling the Bluetooth is very easy and will only take a few seconds.
1.Turn on your computer and wait for Windows to fully boot. Then log in as an administrator. You will not be able to use Bluetooth under a non-administrator account.
2.Press the button with the Bluetooth symbol on the left side of the computer. This will launch the Bluetooth utility. From here you can sync and manage Bluetooth peripherals.
3.Press the Bluetooth button again to disable Bluetooth. This will disable all connections, but the utility will save your settings so the same devices will sync with the computer again when Bluetooth is re-enabled.
According to the manual, "Located beside the keyboard are application buttons. These buttons are called easy-launch buttons. They are: WLAN, Internet, email, Bluetooth, Arcade and Acer Empowering Technology." Pressing the Bluetooth button should toggle Bluetooth on or off, assuming the correct drivers are installed.

For Acep Aspire 504x model systems that have Bluetooth built in, there is an on/off switch located in the front of the system.
For systems with bluetooth built in there will be two buttons next to each other just left of the mic and headphone ports.
The left of the 2 buttons is the bluetooth switch and the right of the 2 buttons is for 802.11 wireless.
If you only have 1 button then you do not have bluetooth built-in. You can also check to see if bluetooth is included by looking at the bottom, if Bluetooth is installed there will be a white FCC lebel with the name Bluetooth written on it.
