G74/G75 Wifi card



Looking to replace my current system with either a G74/G75 or maybe n series. I travel in a motorhome so the wifi card is VERY high on my list in addition to 1080p, good GPU, i7 CPU, 7200 HDD. My question is, are there any standard build G74/G75 units with an Intel 6300/6250/6230 or killer or Killer wifi card? If not it looks like I must order from Xoticpc, GentechPC, or powernotebooks.com. Any and all comments and direction would be Very helpful, tired of trying to figure out what cards all these systems have.

My G75VW BBK5 comes with an atheros wifi ... working peachy for me. I think it is the default for asus ... not sure why exactly as intel seems to be preferred by most. The atheros wifi is not dual N ( whatever that means ) but works just dang fine for me with an older netgear router.

Unless one is pushing a huge bandwidth kinda doubt any motorhome provided wifi solution or most commercial high end systems are going to cause one to lose sleep over the atheros.

Most of us here are using an SSD ( seems like ) as primary drive. It does not make much sense to pay for a high end system and use any ( even very good ) 7200 rpm or 5400 drive as primary on a monster like the G75 or G55 ... ( just my opinion ) ...

John, Thanks for the reply. Do any of the G74/G75 units come with a 2x2 or 3x3 atheros wifi card? Will any of them do 300mps or 5Mhz?
