  1. Hey guys,

    I want to know if this wireless card will work with my laptop (Dell Precision M6300)
    Dell Wireless 1505 Draft 802.11n/g/b MX846 Broadcom.

    Thanks.

    there are only TWO types of slots in laptops:

    PCMCIA or Express

    determine which you have then get the appropriate card.

    That card is not external but an internal one.

    ????

    With laptops there is no such thing as a swappable internal wifi card. There are only EXTERNAL wifi or cell-fi cards that you plug in via an express slot or a PCMCIA slot.

    On some Very high end laptops you can swap out graphics, but this is quite uncommon and these machines cost big $.

    According to your system, your laptop uses EXPRESS slots. You will need a card that uses your Express port.

    and why would you get a wifi card when your laptop has one built in? You already have wifi!

    Yes, the Dell Wireless 1505 mini-card will work just fine in your M6300. The only potential problem is if your system did not ship with the antennae. In the past if you ordered a Dell notebook without an internal wireless card the antennae were not included. I believe that is no longer the case, but I am not 100% sure on that.

    To install the wireless card just follow the instructions in the service manual for the M6300. If you have any questions for me about installing the card I will be happy to help.
