Need help on 5ghz Wi-Fi on a dell XPS 8300 desktop

This question is not answered

Want to connect older XPS 8300 desktop i7 2600 to router Wi-Fi on 5ghz. After researching, I learned that the DW1501 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card only supports 2.4ghz.

What is the easiest/cheapest fix? ----- new PCIe card (will DW1501 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card driver cause problems?) ----   a replacement mini card? Best card of either kind?

  • Try a DW1520 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card. I'm using one on a XPS8300 at 5ghz (it works with 2.4 as well). Amazon has one for $15.68...
