There are a couple options.

I just installed the Dell 1510 half height PCI-e mini card, and am getting about 144 mbps using the 2.4 ghz antennas already wired into the Mini and connecting to a Linksys WAP4400N access point. I'll post some more information on installing the 1510 soon.

I have the Dell Wireless 1505 installed in my Mini9 now. I used it a bit under XP Home but I didn't look to see what kind of connection speed it got. Anyways I am using it with Mac OS X now and get 270 on a 5Ghz network. It seemed to work perfectly under XP.

I will be using this Dell 4965AGN card in the Mini 9 shortly and report my findings. I purchased the card here: ... 0296764831

The third antenna needed for true 300MB throughput will be a cool 3Dbi gain rubber duck style a few others here have used.
