Default Wireless card for Dell Mini 10V? - 07-06-2011, 08:33 AM

Hi,

I want to buy a wireless-n card for my Dell Mini 10V. I also want it to be full compatible with Mac OS X 10.6.7.

Which wifi card do you suggest please?

Thank you very much!

PS : If someone is selling his wireless-N wifi card let me now. I am open on buying from you.

OK, I bought a Broadcom DW1510 Wireless N card from ebay. The description says "DELL Wireless DW1510 802.11n Mini Card Airport MAC OS" ... so I guess it will be fine for my netbook.

Thanks rrfranczak3 !

Good luck.. the 1510 actually doesn't support the 5ghz band at all. Dell has false advertising on there website.. There's a huge forum thread about it (I have one in my inspiron 15r and just found out grr). You have to get the 1520 to have 5ghz N, although I have no idea if the mini10v will support it.

It supports it fine for me. I have a Linksys WRT610N and I can connect to its 5GHz band without a problem. Its very fast too!..
