\015\012If you decide you want to replace it, you will need to first remove the MINI PCI adapter cover from beneith the laptop.
\015\012
\015\012Inside you will probably see a small chip with a wire connected. That is the regular telephone modem for dial up.
\015\012
\015\012The second, bigger one is the wireless card. It should have two metal spring locks on the sides , depress these and it should pop up slightly. then just pull and it should come right out.
\015\012
\015\012getting another just like it may be hard, try ordering one from dell or going to a computer store with knowledgable people and see if they can get you one.
