M15x alienware internal network card

I have an M15x alienware laptop that I bought a couple years ago. The internal wireless network adaption is starting to become flaky, and I'm looking to find a way to replace it. It's an Intel WiFi Link 5300 AGN. Anyone have an idea of where I could get one? I talked with dell support and they're out of stock. I'm hoping I can replace this myself - I'd rather not have to ship the laptop anywhere for repairs or pay an exorbitant amount.

  1. if you really are having trouble finding one
    have you thought about PCMCIA wireless card
    less than $50 USD
    and sometimes better than the one that came with the laptop

    also is USA Ebay available for you?
  2. That's my backup plan. I have an expresscard slot that I can put a wireless adapter in, if needed. My preference would be to find an internal one. The laptop's bulky enough as it is - I'm trying to avoid adding to that (even if it's only an inch or so).

    USA Ebay is available. Didn't think to check there, though - I'll take a look.
