    Your computer probably doesn't have the proper number of antennas to allow you to even upgrade.

    Yeah...

    You do realize that in most parts of the world, the actual internet speed is MUCH slower than your wi-fi connection, right? I would say many countries internet speeds are below the 'b' category.

    My point is...you're not going to notice the difference.
