I want to know if I can replace the network interface card in the computer? It's only picking up to 100 mbps  and I have a 300 mbps plan and I want to do a speed check on the modem but it won't read that high. This is the one I have in now. It's a Athreos model ar5b125. That's what it's showing on the card when I bring up the configurations but when i checked under the system manager it says Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 802.11b|g|n WIFI Adapter

  • interface type: PCI express half-length mini card
  • Data transfer speeds: up to 80 Mbps
  • Transmission standards: 802.11 b/g/n
  • Antennas: 1 internal antenna
  • Single band: 2.4 GHz (b/g/n)
  • Security:
    • Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) supports modes that have 64-bit, and 128-bit keys
    • Support for WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK in Windows

Hi:

 

The dual band HMC wifi cards would need to have two antenna wires connected to them in order to work correctly.

 

I suggest you use a dual band USB wifi adapter.
