Some years ago i purchased a TravelMate 4672 with Windows XP, and
installed Debian GNU/Linux on it, no problem. A few manual fixes (i.e.
loading the correct driver for rtc and such) but not more than

Now I want to install gNewSense on it. Problem is that it contains an
Intel Wirelwss A/B/G adapter, and there are no free drivers for this,
as far as I know.

I want to replace the internal card. It is easily acessible, and the
antenna cables have nice connectors and it _looks_ easy to replace.

Can anyone give me a good recommendation on which card to buy? I think
the card is a MiniPCIExpress, but how do I verify this? Is it a good
idea to go for a card with a/b/g/N support? I do hav a N capable
Linksys router.
