I have a sager, not really sure which one to be honest and like the topic says I'm wondering if It is possible to change my network card. My current one doesnt go over 2 MB download speed and my network supports 8+. Obviously 2 isnt bad but im willing to throw some money at it if its not too difficult to swap them out.

First you want to check if your current WiFi card uses mini pcie. If so, you can pick anyone you want.

That card uses mini pcie so find a card you like that uses mini pcie.
Are you sure its the card that's giving you problems?

nope im just dumb, The company released a completely new set of drivers apparently so their old wireless manager software stopped updating, just did an update and its 3 times as efficient
