I have an old Dell Lattitude 6510 that has a intermittent onboard wifi adapter. Sometimes it does connect to the network, sometimes it will not connect. I tested a USB wifi dongle, which works just fine with full strength! I would prefer to not have a giant dongle sticking out the side of this laptop and would prefer a solution that involves repairing the internal wifi module. I am looking for some advice if the following replacement would work in this particular Dell Lattitude 6510.
A local store offers this particular model with a special order. I am going to assume it would work to, but would like to hear some thoughts from the members here.
