Access Connections for T420/T520 on Windows XP?

Where is the updated Access Connections (XP) for the T420/T520 laptops?  The latest download is for 5.72 and both the webpage and the readme don't list T420/T520 as supported models.  If anyone knows please let me know.

5.72 will work on T420/T520 just fine. 

 

New 5.8x version should be out very soon.

Re: Access Connections for T420/T520 on Windows XP?

It's actually not in the list.  The T420/T520 come with an Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205.  I know it's possible that version 5.72 will work with the T420/T520 but I want to make sure I maintain vendor support since neither the model or the wireless card is listed as supported on this verison of Access Connections.
