Re: Upgrade wireless to 802.11n on this machine
Well, the easy way to connect to your router is not to replace the card, thats overkill!
Do it the easy way and buy a wireless USB adapter insted! :) to be 100% sure that it wont give u any truble is to buy an USB adapter from the same manufacture as your router.
That will solve all your problems whit a low cost:)

Many things/variables determine Internet Speed, some you can control, some not so much. Contact your ISP and have them verify the signal, have a ISP tech come out and analyze the signal. The issue may be outside equipment or the Internet site itself. No one thing will increase speed. Upgrade to a New N or AC Wireless Access point, but remember you must update ALL computers to N or AC to benefit fro the Wireless device upgrade. Check ALL cables and connections, reseat connections. Your Device is a 802.11 G, what are you connecting? Are the Computers G as well? You can connect via a Ethernet cable, that's the fastest/easiest/cheapest way to increase speed.
Your wireless card is not picking up your wireless router, the fault could be that your wireless card did not get a IP address from the router and therefore won't allow the laptop to get into the Internet.
Two things to try, if the wireless icon is on the task bar with a red X on the icon then right click on the icon and click on Repair (this will force the wireless router to issue the wireless card with a new IP address).
If you don't have an Icon then go to Control Panel - Network Connections and right click on the wireless connection and then click Repair.
If this dosen't work then power off your wireless router wait for 30 secs. then power up the wireless router and the reboot your laptop.
Get back to me if you still have problems with all error messages.
