Hey all, pretty simple question, I have my laptop taken apart (to replace a broken display) and was wondering if it is possible to upgrade the wifi card. Currently it has the Centrino 2230 Card. I remember previously trying to upgrade a Lenovo wifi card but failed due to it not booting until the original was reinstalled. My Laptop is the Dell 15r 5521. Thanks for your time.
yes it is up-gradable. first you need to have the new Wi-Fi card on hand. Next you download the drivers for the new card on to a flash drive. Next uninstall the current cards drivers then shut down. Replace teh card in the laptop and boot into the OS. Use the flash drive to install the wi-fi adapter's driver and all should be done.
