Bad photo, so I apologize in advance. Is this the wifi card that is in the netbook now?

I'm pretty that's an mPCI-e form factor. If your other laptop's wifi card isn't like that, you could get this: http://www.amazon.com/Intel-Ultimate.../dp/B001EHBUSE

I believe it looks exactly like that (the wireless n wifi card). Im not sure of brand. I know I took it out of an intel laptop. Does it matter what brand? Just pins of wireless card right?

I suppose it wouldn't hurt to try. Try looking on the manufacturer's website of the other laptop for drivers.

You should match the form factor mostly. There's full height (what Yevrag posted), and half-height cards.

Should match up the number of antennas as well; each wire should go to an antenna pin on the chip - extra pins on the card is ok (usually).

OK so if there is a wire left over that's OK? Cool. Thanks carnage
