The other reviewer clearly did not do his research before marking it down and 1 star is a little too much don't you think just for the user not doing research? 802.11n ONLY SUPPORTS WPA and above!!! WEP stopped at G as it is a very weak form of security compared to WPA/2 and that is a decision belonging to the WiFi Association.

This is used in an HP Pavilion dv7-1270us upgraded from a 5100. This hooks to my Apple Airport Extreme Base Station the latest revision version 7.4.2. Sadly this only goes upto 300mbps even on the 5GHz band. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate on this machine because I use Spanish and Russian languages on it too.

Power usage:
It uses very little above its sibling 5100 but it does use more nonetheless being that it has a 3rd antenna connection as well. I have noticed that when it is idle, it will trigger it's speed down (on N connections) to conserve some of the battery and when it is on full blast, it will go to the 270-300mbps range. Most of the time when it is idle, it will be around 150-216mbps. It is very smart about power management but that doesn't really apply to me seeing as I have a 17" laptop.

Performance:
With my setup unfortunately, I can't achieve the advertised 450mbps (see setup above). I am only left on 300mbps but it feels more stable compared to the 5100's 5GHz N connection. I do get sustained speeds of 10-12MB/s when copying large files (ISO, HD Video) and for smaller files ~8MB/s - ~10MB/s coming from a Gigabit machine. I have stressed it by streaming 2 1080p videos simultaneously without too many lags in playback. 3x 720p videos came out with similar results. 802.

I bought my Dell XPS M1530 laptop two years ago. I was never that concerned about the WiFi connection speed I was acheiving until I started adding a couple of other computers to my wireless LAN and saw the speeds they were getting. I installed Windows 7 professional, 32 bit about 8 months ago. Also, after installing Win7 the 1505 card would rarely connect to my network automatically. The M1530 came with a Dell 1505 Wireless N(draft) minicard. At best I could connect to my d-link router at 54 Mbps. I live in a two story house; the router sits on the second floor. If my laptop was on the 1st floor my signal strength would never get above 3 bars. On the second floor I could get 4-5 bars. After seeing much better performance from other devices on my network I did some research and decided it was time to upgrade.

After deciding to upgrade and researching alternate Wifi cards, I realized I needed to determine how many antennae my laptop had. I accessed the wireless card (very easy to do on the XPS M1530) and discovered the Dell 1505 card had 2 antenna connections, and there was a third antenna sitting there unused. That explains the signal strength issue.

I ordered the Intel 5300 direct through Amazon and was initially informed delivery will take 3-4 weeks. Disappointed, but I could live with 54 Mbps for another month. Well, a week and a half later, I came home from work and there was my new Wifi card waiting for me! Bonus!

The card came in a small plastic clamshell with a software cd and software install instructions. The instructions state the card is only supported on Intel Centrino systems. My laptop has an Intel Core2 Duo processor. Slight moment of panic there.

Arrived much quicker than estimated arrival (received 7 days after placing order). New and packaged safely/professionally.

Snap to instal, just shut of laptop, removed battery, screws on underside, took of cover, removed old antennae/full size card, put new full size 5300 in slot (you don't need to take off any of the stickers that come on it, leave em on), reattached antennae (also added 3rd antennae from same seller, found space inside next to speaker, didn't want to go to trouble of taking apart/positioning in screen--note other reviewers have said they didn't even bother adding 3rd antennae and worked fine), put everything back, powered on, found new hardware message, installed 5300 driver (downloaded before swapping out old wireless g card) and got message it failed. So installed Intel pro wireless 5300 software bundle (also available free on Intel site and previously downloaded) and that did the trick. Works flawlessly, finds network instantly when boot up, excellent signal strength, no drops, and now showing 130mpbs on network and clock in around 65mbps download speed on speedtest.net, 3x faster than my old wireless g card. If you have a dual band with 2.4 and 5ghz N router ($$$) to really take advantage of this card it would be a lot faster than what I'm getting, but for $7 and 3x speed I'm pretty happy.

I Have a 2008 Sony Vaio VGN-NR220E running Vista home 32 bit and a Dlink 615 DIR wireless n router. Make sure you check to see if your laptop chipset and OS is compatible with this card and use same card size you are replacing (full size or half, otherwise you'll have to buy adapter if get a half to put in full size slot, and extend your existing antennae somehow to reach (mine had no slack to stretch) or wont fit if you have half size slot and are trying to put full size in there) and you should have no problems. Highly satisfied with this product and seller.
