I have a Presario Model C751NR Laptop,
S/N [text removed for privacy]
I would like to upgrade it from Wireless Lan, 802.11G to Wireless Lan, 802.11N.
I would like to do this by changing the existing, (AR5007) Mini PCI wireless lan card.
Could you tell me what Wireless Lan 802.11 N was available for the C700 series Laptops.
I see the drivers are available on the support page.
Thanking you in advance for any help you may offer.

Note that the specific wireless cards in HP systems have specific bios implemented support. Using any 3rd party or non-hp cards (or even hp cards that is not qualified for that model) would cause the system to not boot.
You would get a boot error saying something like "unsupported wireless network device detected. System halted. remove device and restart"
According to Partsurfer (http://partsurfer.hp.com) there is no wireless N card available for your model so I would not reccommend doing this (if you still want to try - make sure you can return the part and get your money back)
