There are several that will work on that model.You can also get a wireless card that slides in the side that will work as well or better than the internal one.It will probably be cheaper than the internal one too.You can use a USB wifi adapter as well.

Can i install wireless card ddapter on dell inspiron b1300? Do I need drivers or softare?


From what I can see that laptop should already come with a dell 1470 A/B/G card internal. It is a mini-PCI card.
This card should work, but be aware it is not an "easy swap" where you would just slide one out and the broadcom in. On most laptops you would have to dissasemble a lot of the components in order to get into the area where the wifi card is held. I have done it on several laptops, but it is not at all an easy task for someone that is not used to building computers.
If it is of any help to you, I found this review that has a lot of info about the specs and such on your laptop.

Atheros AR5BXB63 is gone from Device Manager


Sounds like your hardware WIFI card has failed inside the laptop. The easiest thing to do would be to get an external PCMCIA or USB WIFI card. Many of them are available for under $15.00 on ebay.
I would suggest a PCMCIA WIFI card which will leave your usb ports free.

You can check with ACER to find out what a new wifi card would cost and if they have any manuals to show how to replace it. I have had many laptops pulled apart and it is much more difficult to replace internal cards and parts than on a desktop.

Below is a link to an ebay page with laptop WIFI cards auction listings.

I hope that this information .helpful and will leave positive feedback for me if you do.

Thank You,

Brian

Can anyone help me locate the internal wifi antenna of my travel 2428


You will need to have the laptop taken apart to be sure. Most manufacturers wrap the wireless antenna around the monitor. The only way to be sure is to find someone who has worked your model, or follow the the antenna from the wireless card inside your notebook
