no auto boot wlan hp pavilion needs to be switched off and o

Specs: Vista Home Premium SP2, Intel T5450 @ 1.66GHz, 4GM ram
This happened after I put on an ubuntu version called ICE. Now, if I load eg puppy linux the wireless adapter is invisible. I reinstalled Visa and it saw the wlan adapter but doesn't auto recognise now so I have to switch on manually. Can I put in a new adapter with 'n' capability?

Generally you can remove the wireless card from any laptop and replace them. It is usually near the ram on the bottom of the laptop. I find that Broadcom Wireless cards have less compatibility issues than most other cards. Mind you this is not counting Linksys or Netgear. Avoid Atheros cards, the 59xx series most especially. The BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01) - using the mac80211 b43 is one of the most compatible for Linux, Mac, and Windows Operating Systems and sub-systems.

Thanks Kohouri

I have had a look a the card and thanks for the valuable advice on the compatibility!
Problem is the arial. The 'n' capability cards have an extra(one or two) pins for the arial wires that the HP 2700TU doesn't cater for. Just join everything to the existing arials?
What about an external card in the expresscard slot, as that would have an arial and probably a 3g facility?
