Summary: My old wireless card was overheating and wouldn't stay connected to a wireless signal. The new card completely restored my connectivity to Wi-Fi. No driver installation was necessary, but previous to installation I had updated the driver(s) from the Intel website. I don't know if that was a factor in smoothly transitioning between old card to new card. I was about to consider getting a new computer, but this card saved me the trouble.
Summary: I fought and fought my wife's laptop wi-fi issues. Only through the process of elimination did I consider the actual adapter. Amazon came through again. Getting to the adapter was the most challenging but once replaced, the computer has not had a wi-fi problem to date.
