1535 Compatible 5Ghz WLAN card

This question has suggested answer(s)

I have a Studio 1535 and I am looking for a compatible 5Ghz WLAN card. Can anyone advise if the 1520 mini card is suitable?

 

Is there a suitable bluetooth card I can fit as well?

  • Many thanks, I'll order the 5300.

  • installed the Intel WiFi Link 5300 (802.11 a/g/n) Half Mini-Card (2.4 GHz / 5 GHz) & it works well on 2.4. The signal is a bit weak on 5Ghz. There are only 2 antennas in my laptop & I guess these are not tuned to 5Ghz.

    Any ideas on where I can get 3 antennas for 2.4 & 5ghz?

  • Hi BJohnD,

    Could you please share the distance between the router and the laptop.

    Please share the router (make and model#) that you are using with the wireless card.

    A distance of less than 30 ft between the wireless router and the laptop is recommended for a good consistent connection. This distance is recommended keeping in mind interference caused due to various other electronic devices working at the same frequency level. Also I would like to inform you that 5Ghz frequency works best when there are no walls or obstacles in the way, and you choose channels that aren't overlapping each other in order the get the most bandwidth.

    In your laptop, there are only two antenna cables that you can use to connect with the wireless cards. 

    Please reply with information. 

    Thanks and Regards,
