    Upgrade WLAN in my Acer 1410 from 802.11b/g/n WiFi Link 1000 ( 112BNHMW ) to a 802.11a/b/g/draft n card?

      I have a Acer 1410 with a Intel WiFi Link 1000 as it's WLAN device.  My wireless network is dual band 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz and I would like my Acer to benefit from the additional bandwidth.  I called Acer to ask about upgrading the WLAN and was told it's impossible.  Looking at it though, it appears pretty simple to do and 802.11a/b/g/draft n cards are readily available for cheap.  The form factor looks the same, but the number of "pins" is a bit different between mine and, say, a wifi 6200. 

       

      So, is it possible to upgrade?  Can someone recommend a part#?

       

      Thanks
