Question about Broadcom BCM94306MP - IEEE 802.11b/g Wireless Internal Mini-PCI Card (BCM94306MPWIRELESS)

1 Answer

Broadcom 94309mp from a gateway laptop not installing on a dell.

I purchased several of these from ebay under the pretense that they were also known as dell truemobile 1400/1450s among others. I think they have come from gateway laptops as the part # is 6002495. I figure they may be branded but they should still install on my dell system. Set-up, however will not see it correctly during installation and thus will cancel installation. I hope this enough for starters. I get the feeling there are quite a few folks out there with this problem.

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.

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.

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.

Broadcom 802.11g network drivers not loading. Shows in device manager as Unknown.


There should be a CD that came with your laptop that has all of the drivers for your laptop. If you dont' have that CD, you can download the drivers from http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/getFile.asp?id=20905&dscr=Broadcom%20Wireless%20Driver%20Version%204.100.15.5&uid=241282921
Transfer to a USB key or CD and install on your laptop.

Network Controller Driver Missing Gateway M405


Well, you can directly try Driver Detective and let the software have a free scan to automatically detect & update the missing Gateway drivers. This way things can be much easier & efficient. Also you don't have to risk install wrong drivers which might cause severe system issues.

Best wishes!

Broadcom 802.11g stop recognizing any wireless on my gateway laptop


is this on a laptop? check that the wifi is not turned off. some laptops have a switch on the side or perhaps a Fn key (blue icons on the F keys) that disables the wifi on the pc. try Fn+F2 or Fn +F5 (look a the F keys for a blue wifi icon)

post back results and the system you are using inc the OS so I may assist in greater detail if required
