Need internal WLAN card reco - stocker dead.

hi folks - I have a dell inspiron laptop with an Intel PRO WLAN card inside, and it no worky anymore. not sure what happened to it, but all things software cannot get it to function - its there; the drivers are loaded [latest greatest from intel] but it cannot receive a signal.
Fortunately on this laptop its easy to get to it and R/R

it uses a molex connector, spring retainers, so pretty standard easy thing.
my Question is : WHICH? which card would be best in today's market?

thanks for the reco

If the card is being read by the machine, the problem may not be the card itself. Have you tried a USB adapter?
