My story is rather complicated... My wifi switch on my Asus X50GL only works if it is switched on prior to starting the computer. Swtiching the wifi on before starting the laptop and then booting the laptop up will show 'available wifi'...
Assuming if I switched it off, booted up the computer and then only switched it on, the laptop does not detect any available wifi although the area is wifi ready!

changing chips most time requires a mother board up date to cater for the extra chip pins
best advice here is to take it to a computer repair shop and they will be able to tell you right off if what you want to do is possible with that board
point of interest here
chips are only as fast as the hard drive and rams will work
if your unit has a disc type hard drive consider upgrading that to a solid state hard drive which handles data much much faster than a disc type
just a bit of info when you are talking to the computer geek
There are two ways that Wireless connection can be turned on or off. Make sure the Wi-Fi switch on the right side (next to the CD/DVD-RW tray) is positioned in the "on " position. This switch should be your first check, as it also overrides the keyboard activation settings. If it is already in the "on" position, and it still doesn't work, you will have to turn it on via a soft-key combination [fn] + [F2], while in Windows. This will pop up a graphic icon, onscreen, for both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. If they are "off", they will be shown in combination with a red circle with a slash through it. If they are active/on, it will be just the corresponding icon, without the "circle-slash." Use the touchpad or mouse to click on the wireless device you want to turn on or off. (Both, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi can be used at the same time, or individually.) Now you should be ready to connect to another wireless device. :)
Press the fn + f2 key at the same time to toggle WiFi on and off. You can also check in Control Panel -> Network Connections to see if the adapter is disabled. If it is, right click it and click enable.
As if the wireless of ASUS notebook computer has two switch.You enable it in windows device manager.It is the one switch of them.But maybe it doesn't work.The other switch is on you computer's pad,near the keyboard.If you didn't find it,I suggest that you use Intel wireless control program to control you WiFi.
No, you want to connect direct to the Modem from your new computer. Look for the user's manual online and find out where the Wi-Fi switch is. Sometimes it's a Function key, where you hold down the Fn key and press one of the function keys along the top row. Look for a little "radio antenna" icon on F2, F3 or F4. On other machines it's actually a hardware switch, usually on the left or right sides.
