Do you want to physically swap the hardware or spoof drivers or what? Please be more specific. – Shinrai Mar 15 '11 at 17:36

It's a miniPCI card under the keyboard. Just unplug the antenna, remove the old card, and put the new one in.

Here's an image of what a miniPCI card looks like:

Do I can have an issue at reboot without reinstalling linux ? Does photos or videos that show how to do it exist ? – zillion Mar 15 '11 at 18:08
    
You won't need to reinstall Linux. My apologies on the location, though. In the A300/A305, it's under the keyboard. take a look at page 2 of: irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-A305/… – Hyppy Mar 15 '11 at 18:42
