I'm looking to buy a new laptop. Lately, there has been a large amount of issues regarding wifi cards, specifically connectivity problems, so I'm concerned. My current laptop, a Dell Inspiron Mini 10v, uses a Dell Wireless 1397 card and it works fine.
The laptop I have in mind, which is the new Dell Inspiron 14z ultrabook, uses a Dell Wireless 1703 card. The laptops that have received the most complaints about wifi card issues are XPS 14 and XPS 15 laptops, which use Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6235 cards.
My question is, are there any issues with the Dell Wireless 1703 wifi card? If you have an Inspiron 14z or a laptop that uses a Dell Wireless 1703 wifi card, can you describe your experiences with it? Any connection problems? Sudden drops in speed? Sudden disconnect from the internet?
