Can I upgrade the wireless card in a Gateway MX6454?

I have a Gateway MX6454 laptop, with a Gateway/ Emachine Wireless Card 802.11g GemTek/BroadCom 104129 installed in it. Can I replace this card with a compatible 802.11n wireless card?

    I was actually looking for a more specific answer. The wireless card is an internal OEM. Can I replace that card with an 802.11n card? If so, where can I get it? Specifically.

    Since that is a built in wireless card you cannot replace it with another built in wireless card. if you really want to go and use a wireless N card you need to buy a external wireless N card and just disable the built in wireless......

I may not be understanding what you are stating, so bear with me;

1) The Wireless Modem antenna wires are up in the Display Assembly,

http://www.mundocorp.com/shopexd.asp?id=1160

In otherwords they should already be there.

2) The 802.11 Mini PCI Card, is a Wireless Module.
It goes in the Mini PCI Compartment, under the Mini PCI Compartment Cover, located on the bottom of the laptop.

It's made by Broadcom,

(Gateway 6002672 part number)

http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/NETWORK/Wireless/6002672/6002672mv.shtml

See at the Top right where it states Main, and has a white Side Arrow?
This terminal is where the Black wire (Lead) of the wireless antenna connects to.

The other terminal, AUX, is where the White wire connects to.

Here is the Service Manual, (PDF file form),

REMEMBER, remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery, before working on the laptop. Also follow Anti-Static Precautions.

Unable to detect wireless card


Did you install the drivers for the Broadcom Wireless Card? If you did and it's not showing up the card is bad.

How enable wifi on gateway laptops


The Fn+F2 should enable the wireless. If you don't have wireless enable after all, reinstall the drivers of your wireless card. You can download it from here:
http://support.gateway.com/product/default.aspx?partNumber=1013943R

Scroll down the page until you see wireless, and download the driver.

My gateway laptop cant connect to the internet. _When I plug a cable, the red light in the port does not respond _ The WIFI does not respond


Hello John,
It seems that: 1. Your LAN controller and the WiFi controller could be disabled in your BIOS setup.To re-enable them, if applicable,
  • Press the F1(or F2 ) key repeatedly after restarting the computer to enter the BIOS setup.
  • Navigate through your BIOS and locate the settings for LAN conroller and wireless, and select Enabled to enable them.
2. You may not have the appropriate drivers installed on your laptop for your network controllers. Upon further investigation, your laptop runs on the following network hardware:
  • ActionTec IEEE 802.11b network card installed in Mini PCI expansion slot
  • Broadcom BCM94306 IEEE802.11g network card installed in Mini PCI expansion slot
  • Broadcom BCM94300 IEEE802.11a/g network card installed in Mini PCI expansion slot
Download and install your drivers for the hardware above from: Wireless Drivers(Broadcom BCM94306) from http://www.soft32.com/download_175098.html Broadcom BCM94306 10/100Mbps LAN drivers from http://www.broadcom.com/support/ethernet_nic/downloaddrivers.php
Hope this solution helps.Good day.

Courtesy of Gateway here is your driver for the network card:

http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?ref=step&st=browse&platform=10022&model=11417&os=10406&type=10095

Now here is where it gets tricky. I'm not sure what wireless network card you have there but on that page is a section that says other available downloadsm click on where it says "click here to view these results". There will be drivers for different network cards. I believe it will be the first one in the list, the broadcom one, if not then try any of the other wireless card drivers. Hope this helps you and sorry for the delay.
