I am located in Japan.
It is a bummer that the 655 (and probably the 855) does not have A band (as I prefer A band as well... very quiet in my area and works well with my xbox360)
I am hoping that you will find these cards work with an Atheros based router.... then I can justify not having A band.
Time will tell, I may hang it up and use the 3 aerials as Coat hangers
Hey Pieter! Still patiently waiting for your modded Broadcom INF for the 1505.
Also, what 1505 Vista driver have you found works best--the Dell driver v184.108.40.206, the Microsoft/Vista Broadcom driver, or the latest driver from Broadcom for the 1505?
All this swapping over of cards is breaking my mini-PCIe slot, the little steel bracket that holds the card in is now loose but still works.
Taking the aerials off all the time is not ideal either.
What I could do is upload one of 2 INFs I made, I can't remember which I made last and used (have since formatted the HD)
So it's not forgotten.
How much do I need to pull my laptop apart to thread the aerial through the hinge?
Feed the aerial tip down the hinge from the right hand side !!, as far as it will go, there should be some spare slack .
Now feed the connector end through the hole where the other 2 aerials are also coming through.
Once through it will be in the WLAN connector bay.
Put card in attach the 3 aerials, I doubt it will maka any difference which aerial goes on what connector (I use from left to right - white, new, black)
Thats it, push any slock back down the hole as you don't want to crimp the cable with cover.
Do you mean the band it uses, because it's obviously a b/g/n router, not just a b/g router?
Also, when you get it, make sure you configure it for WPA2 and AES (or configure your PC for AES and WPA2 and set the 655 to AUTO) otherwise, you will find that you have erratic behavior when connected using an "n" card. If you connect with TKIP or WPA, it will appear to work, but suddenly stop for no good reason!
BTW, how much USD$ is NZ$320? That sounds expensive!
$320 = ~ US$210, I know I can get it cheaper of Ebay but the posting always kills it.
No matter, I'm sacrificing my kids education for this
