"Full height" Mini-PCIe. Not the half-height.

Looks like the right one to me. I'm running the 5300 in my Mini (added a third antenna.)

I'm using that card in my mini and I get 144mbps through an apple time capsule. I've ordered the broadcom "n" BCM4321 card to see if it is faster with my time capsule. I'll post the results when I get it.

FWIW: Latest Broadcom driver for XP linked above...have no problem connecting to either 802.11b/g or 802.11a frequencies of WRT600N router w/DD-WRT firmware at full 270Mbps speeds using these drivers...

I ordered this card from this seller on January 25. It's February 8 and I haven't received it yet. He will send you an email talking about Chinese customs delaying the shipment. I'm sure he sent it and I don't think I'm getting ripped off, just wanted to let you know that it may take awhile to get it. He said if I haven't received it after 45 days then he would send another. 45 days is a long time to wait to see if your purchase shows up. If it shows up in the next few days I'll post it on here.

Rec'd the broadcom "n" BCM4321 card and it runs at 130 mbps with the time capsule. Both seem equal in speed in casual use.
