What are my options now? Try to claim under the 5 year warranty or getting a new card? How much is that gonna cost me?
I cant imagine it wouldnt be covered under the warranty!
ALternatively buy an external card, theres a few to choose from - some examples
itxtme: easily - definatley not! It is never an easy task adding internal hardware to a laptop (bar RAM). I do not see wht the wireless would not be covered by your warranty!? Have you explored this avenue properly?

Actually quite a few laptops these days are just as easy to change the wireless module as it is to change the RAM as I said in my previous post, this is by design and for this very situation.
msian: well.. check the HP website. i use a compaq v3133. i checked on the hp website and there was a free repair for my model because of the wireless. same symptoms like urs... i took it to the centre here and they fixed it free and i had no warranty.
