I have E420s (Type: 4401-2RG) with "1x1 11b/g/n Wireless LAN PCI Express Half Mini Card Adapter".
I'd like to replace the adapter to a one that works in GHz (in the same time or separately).
I tried one from my other laptop but I receive an error while booting about unsupported device.
Does anyone have a list of supported WiFi card adapters working with 5GHz for E420s?
Does it need to be "Lenovo branded" adapter or anyone from a list?
Many thanks/ jahro

Well, it doesn't need to work in MIMO mode.
Do you mean that no matter which I decide to get, I need to buy it at Lenovo...? Do they change anything in the cards, or I can buy one anywhere but needs to be exactly the same that Lenovo sells?
Is it possible to get the whitelist?

it is possible to change half size adapter with full size WLAN adapter ? I tried to insert atheros full size wifi adapter into pci express slot but not recognized by OS.
