I have Dell Insprion 1520, with an internal Wireless-G Card.
Does anyone know if i can upgrade that to the new Wireless-N?
I do have a media card slot, i know i can get a separtate wireless reciver and insert it there.
I will if i have to when i decide to upgrade, but i would rather try to see if i can stay totally internal.
I am clumsy, and which is why i love my internal wireless and bluetooth. I am always afraid i am going to damage the reciver and/or my system if i get an external one.

I dont have the link handy, but i did find out that yes, there is a wireless-n WLAN card that i can upgrade to in the future.

Would it be wise to get a Wirless-n adaptor first, and then a router? That way if i do find a wireless-n signal i can give it a test before i buy the router

Wireless-n adaptor will work with a wireless-g router, at the g speed right?

I havent upgraded yet. Just was wanting to get educated about it, and just wait for the prices of equipment to come down.
