You don't by any chance know where there is a service manual for OP's laptop
in pdf format (or html)? I did a bit of googling but didn't find it. It's a
Toshiba U505-S2950. Or maybe you could advise how to replace the wireless
card in this particular machine...


It's a user's guide for the general u500 series of lap-tops:

(or http://bit.ly/zygnZV if that's too long)

But it does show a door on the underside covering the wireless
card, so it's likely a simple matter of unhooking the antennae,
gently prising it free and installing a new card.

(also, I have no idea if Toshiba does hardware whitelisting
on any of their lap-tops, but you might search around a bit
before you buy a new card)
