    Honestly you wouldn't tell the difference, even if you get faster speeds. If you still want to buy one, I'd recommend the Intel® Ultimate N WiFi Link 6300 a/g/n 3x3 or the Killer™ Wireless-N 1202 a/g/n 2x2 MIMO.

    6300 has drivers issues, I dealt with it for a year, and switch to Bigfoot

    I have the Intel Centrino Ultimate N-6235. It has Bluetooth 4.0 and can receive 2 streams on either 2.4 or 5 ghz band. Not had a single problem with drivers but you must uninstall the Atheros ones first. The 6300 has 3-streams but you give up Bluetooth. And with the crappy sound system in the G75, I use my Bluetooth headset all the time. Djask is wrong if you have the BestBuy version. It doesnt allow 40mhz channel bonding widths, and you will notice the difference!!!

    i have the same 6235 as tko - runs smooth, definitely make sure you uninstall everything related to atheros. hopefully going to test the speeds under a new router soon

    edit: while were on it, anyone know when the half high AC cards are going to be released?

    blah

    So guess I have to upgrade as well. I just redid my business with a asus router with 2.4 and 5 ghz and im sure it will not be much of a noticeable difference but the point of buying a expensive gaming laptop is for the best of the best. For it to not come with it was depressing to find out. This is my second one and im very happy with my purchase other than finding out this little factor.
