    yes its compatible. if you look up at the dell drivers, you can see that you are able to download it.

    but the question is.... where can you get the card? so far the card is only available when you purchase a clevo laptop.

    You are correct. Perhaps some of our NBR "notebook retailer" friends may help, i.e. Aikimox, Malibal #2, Sager?

    I would also like to order one of these. I have been really disapointed in the intel 6300.

    We are in the process of updating the website. It will take a few days before you can order it online. Those in a rush can try ebay sellers.

    So apparently it performs better than the N 6300 and is also cheaper. Is it easy to swap out the wireless card? If so, then I will leave it at the 6200 and just buy the Bigfoot and add it in.

    Aren't those Bigfoot cards really Atheros chipsets? Not that it's a bad thing because I think Atheros is the better of the two (vs Intel). I'm waiting for the Atheros AR9462 which is a Dual band chip with Bluetooth 4.0 capabilites as well. I'd like to see something like that from BigFoot.

    So if i order m18x with Intel® Advanced N 6200 a/g/n 2x2 MIMO as stock and upgrade to Bigfoot i'll still have Bluetooth 3.0, cause it's a seperate module? How to switch 2 antena adapter to 3 one? Where to get an extra cable?
