On board wirless on aspire 9300 notebook does not work, any way to replace it?

Hello,
\015\012
\015\012Yours may be replaceable.
\015\012
\015\012Most laptops/notebook have what is called a miniPCI slot for\015\012installation of an adapter card. These have in the past normally been\015\012Network Cards for connecting via hard wire. Yours may be a combo\015\012network/wifi transceiver. There is really only one way to find out and\015\012that is to run an audit of your computer.
\015\012
\015\012However, as you may know already, you can enable and disable the\015\012wireless transceiver from your keyboard. You have a Fn keytop and the\015\012color of the letters is associated with other key tops that serve a\015\012dual purpose. These are primarily the F keys. But, the Page Up and Page\015\012Down are typically volume keys for your speaker. One of these keys it\015\012associated with your wireless component. You wil notice it by the icon\015\012used in the same color as the Fn key. It looks like a | with partial\015\012circles radiating out on either side. Still, it could have something\015\012else as an icon but should trigger a clue to you. On some laptops there\015\012is even a little switch on the side of the laptop body, often hard to\015\012spot, that needs to be moved from the off to the on position.
\015\012
\015\012I use and encourage people to use Win Audit. You can find this free program at majorgeeks dot com
\015\012Specifically this is the link.
\015\012
\015\012Once you download it move the file to folders you may want to create on your C drive called c:\\software\\winaudit
\015\012
\015\012Right click the C drive icon in Explorer and select New, Folder. Title\015\012that: Software. Now repeat this while right clicking on the new\015\012Software folder and create a new folder called: WinAudit. Now, Cut and\015\012Paste WinAudit into this destination folder. Once you have WinAudit\015\012here, there is no installation. This program is a Stand Alone, it\015\012doesn't need to be installed.
\015\012
\015\012If you want a shortcut on your desktop, right click WinAudit.exe and\015\012select create shortcut and then cut and paste that to your desktop.
\015\012
\015\012When you run this program, you will see an exhaustive analysis of\015\012everything and anything on your laptop, including software. What you\015\012want to do is focus on the Hardware category and look for items in a\015\012PCI slot. You can also look for and find where your wireless\015\012transceiver is located. It may be a chip on the mainboard.
\015\012
\015\012This discovery will give you your options. If its a component on your\015\012mainboard there may be a way to install a firmware update to the wifi\015\012transceiver. A firmware update writes new code to the chip itself and\015\012this may fix and wake the device up. These chips today are utterly\015\012reliable and its doubtful its destroyed. It probably just needs to be\015\012massaged with a new driver or new firmware patch.
\015\012
\015\012When you know what you have and what's onboard let me know of your\015\012discovery. I can see if there are known issues that can be addressed or\015\012if you need to seek an alternative.
\015\012
\015\012Are you still under warranty by any chance?
\015\012
\015\012Regards,
\015\012Worldvet
