    I purchased the intel 6300 mini card from amazon and put it in the machine. it shows up in device manager fine. when i go to connections it gives the no connections found error. i tried the new drivers from intel and have the intel proset wireless utility. it says the the hardware radio switch is off, however its def on.

    when i put the original card back in it works fine. i have reseated the new card several times, its def in. i even removed the cmos batter to try and reset everything. the antenna are def connected.

    You have to tape pin 20 IIRC. It might be pin 22. I had the same problem adding a Intel 5100. There have been threads about this in the past but I don't remember where they are at. I'm sure someone else can pop in with which pin it is for sure. Bets are on that it is pin 20.

    thats very interesting, how the heck was that figured out, must be a genius?

    it didnt work for me, i used a sharpie to block off the pin, i went over it a few more times since the pic showed it wasnt fully covered, but it is now and still doesnt work

    i dont have as many pins as in the 4965 card, but i still covered the 2nd pin

    I really don't think a sharpie will work. Tape or nail polish

    I think the sharpie puts to light of a coat on , thats my guess. I have read about this somewhere just not sure where and it was because of the new N card :confused: .
