    WHat is the best wireless card that can be used with a G73? I am looking for both speed and long range connectivity.

    I want a card that has long range connectivity or is there any type of device I can get to help me connect to connections that are a far distance away? I use my laptop alot fo work and some places I cant a good connection depending on where i am in the building. The wireless card thats with the G73 is decent, but my friends Dell can get way better conection than I can get being in the same area. Hhaha I just want to show him up really. What is the most powerful card out there or is there some sort of device to boost connections? for laptops, or that is compatible with this g73?

    I think the consensus is the Intel 6200.

    Well, you could get the Intel 6300 and run a third antennae wire (disassembly required)

    I suppose the third wire could always stick out of a small 'mouse hole' out of the back? ;)

    Funny- I've got some older Dell Latitude D600/610's around the house and the G73 gets much better reception than they do and see networks they can't.

    Or you'd mount it internally along with the other ones along the LCD. :p Personally I'd just get the 6200. I'm debating getting it myself just to hit the 300mbps speeds since I'm stuck at 150mbps currently.

    Would have been nice if the G73's EXT_ANT port was legit

    So, uhm... it's not? I haven't messed with it at all but I assumed that rubber stopper would come out and there'd be an antenna port there with threading.

    It's rubberstopped and will not come off easily.

    If you're daring enough to disassemble your laptop to install an extra antenna around the main chassis and around the screen bezel, the Intel 6300 would be the top choice. If not, stick with the 6200.
