Can you replace wireless internet cards in your laptop if the one it came with isn't performing well?

Most wireless cards in laptops are physically removable. However, the laptop's BIOS often only allows certain wireless cards to be installed. In this case, you either need to modify the BIOS (very tricky / risky), or turn off the internal card and plug a card into a CardBus slot or USB port.
