Acer Aspire V5 Wireless

Postby AndrewJB » Wed Mar 27, 2013 7:33 am

Hi All,

Recently changed to a 5ghz wireless network (to much interference on 2.4ghz), Using an Apple Airport Extreme. Since discovered my Acer Apire 5336 doesn't have a 5ghz card in it, Plus its getting old and needs replacing

So ive found an Acer Aspire v5 (Model: NX.M4YEK.010)

It says its got, Acer InviLinkTM NplifyTM 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi CERTIFIEDTM


Any one any experience of this machine and wireless card? from what i can see on internet machine itself will be fine but wireless could be a royal pin in the rear? I cant even identify who makes the wireless card some seem to be Broadcom and some Atheros


Thanks
