upgrade with intel centrino n 6300 wlan chip possible?

my question is, to implement a new wlan chip: intel centrino ultimate n 6300 (5GHz -> 450MBit).

Does anybody know, if this is possible?

I bought a new router: linksys e4200 and wanted to try out the max bandwith while data tranfserring.

Bought also WLAN Chip. Intel Centrino Ultmiate N 6300.

This chip should be compatible with any intel boards and processors:

My Macbook has the Dual Core 2 2,4GHz, 4GB Ram, 250GB hd.

So if anyone has ideas or memories, if this is possible let me know as well as if its not possible

Thanx for supporting me

The chips are integrated into the logic board and are not removable.

+ I fully agree with the end result of mayer's answer - It is not possible to change them out. Your laptop is not an Intel board, it is an Apple board. Intel may make the processor and the controller chip. But they do it Apple's specifications and Apple firmware is embedded in them. They run the way Apple wants them to, not how Intel designed them to or wants them to. Apple products don't play well with components that don't have Apple firmware or with upgrades not intended by Apple.
