Did you read Frank's post #6? Surely this doesn't require you to disassemble a laptop, buy something that possibly doesn't work and spend money for a new laptop that may not be needed.
I get Verizon FIOS which has many different speeds promised. If I use an external USB ac adapter (asus 53) and I log onto 5Ghz AC from my router, my Network and Internet Settings status shows 133 Mbps. If I connect using the built in NIC from Toshiba (Intel Centrino N 2200) I get 72 Mbps. So you can see why I am trying to get a little more speed and If it doesn't work, I'll just a new laptop with an AC protocol built in.What Internet speed are you paying for ?
