Can anyone tell me whether this Mini PCI card is compatable

I am about to buy a mini wireless card for my laptop to increase it's bandwadth, but as I am newbie to tinkering with laptops I am not sure whether it will work or not.

I have a Dell Inspiron N5010, and the card I am looking to install is this one: DELL Intel® WiFi Link 5100 Wireless Mini PCI-E Card 300Mbps

All help appreciated.

Regards AF.

Thanks for that much appreciated.

I was aware of the online chat but thought it was only for sales, and the people wouldn't have a clue about technical issue.

It turns out it is compatible
