    So my mom has a dell 1535 wich came with the 1397 BG card and its a pos. It crashes in windows 7 all the time.

    Now I got a intel 5300 and i plugged it in and hooked all the wires up.

    Here is the dell support diagram

    http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/1535/en/sm/minicard.htm

    On the dell computer, where the WLAN car goes. There is a diagram on there that says
    __*_____*_____*_
    White - Grey - Black

    I tried with the intel drivers, i tried letting windows load them. The only thing I didn't do, was run in compatibility mode.

    any ideas why this isn't working?

    update.

    Figured out from the obvious where the wires go. I currently have both the dell and intel card in the laptop as there are 2 mini pci-e slots. Neither card seems to work correctly.

    Im out of ideas.

    It out now, i put them both in just to mess with it, see if anything happened. I swapped the antenna cables back and forth.

    Its weird that device manager see's it installed, the drivers show up, but windows won't see that there is a card installed. doing a clean install isn't really a option for this machine.

    Alright, took the 5100 out of my brothers which is full heights and it didn't work. Its either a os issue, or both pci-e slots are dead which is unlikely.

    You don't by chance have a key combination, like Fn+ (Transmission Symbol) or a switch that turns it off and on?

    Nope. Although, i started it in safe mode as i was going to try and re-install drivers and it worked magically. Odd. i know alot of people say the intel wireless is crap, but can't be worse then the dell 1397 crashing all the time.

    Odd though, the 5100, with 2 antennas and the 5300, with 3 antennas are getting 60-120mbps when my macbook pro is getting 270. And we are all on 5ghz.
