    Most likely the reason you can't get onto your network is software based and not hardware.

    1st, can you connect with cat-5?
    2nd, turn off security and software firewalls. Try again.
    3rd, make sure your router is only broadcasting on G, not any mixed. There are cards that have problems when broadcasting mixed, but these are usually older B cards.
    4th, can you connect to other wireless, such as hot spots?

    If you insist on replacing the hardware first, you may find it still not working and you have voided your warranty.

    If you really have to have osx86, get your current card working first. If it is defective, let Fujitsu replace it under warranty. Then when you replace the card for an osx86 compatible one, at least they have a record of the case being entered for that item. Then if you have a problem for warranty in the future, just slip the old card back in.

    Its not software related. I am 1111111111% sure. Thanks for the help guys.

    So. I ordered the wireless card, but before it comes, I decided to do a little test run, and succesfully located, removed, and just slid the card back in that I am currently losing. Thanks a lot for the directions. Thanks guys!

    Hi kureshii,

    Im just wondering if this operation would be enough to get close to cpu. I really want to replace my t5500 with t7400 or t7600 processor... any advise would be highly appreciated.

    Well, from observation you have to remove that aluminium heat shield first, that's the easy part. Unplug any ribbon cables you see (taking note of their connections), remove any screws you notice (again, noting their positions), and then remove the shield. If it does not come off easily, do not use excessive force, check to see if you have removed all screws holding it in place. If so, check if there are any tabs.

    The hard part comes in removing the heatsink assembly, this varies from machine to machine so you'll have to be quite careful. Essentially, it boils down again to removing more screws, taking note of their positions, and then unseating and removing the CPU.

    I haven't tried this personally (still have another year on my warranty and don't want to push my luck yet). Did it on some older laptops (Pentium 3 and earlier), but never on a socket 479. Good luck if you're planning to go ahead with it =)

    what wireless card are you using? Atheros ar5006exs?? mines for some reason sucks at connecting at a distance. Literally have to sit about 5 feet from the router to connect.
