MODEM DELL 5550 2XGNJ F5521GW with W520?

Hello!

 

I would like to know if modem DELL 5550 2XGNJ will work with my Lenovo Think Pad w520. I know that I have free PCIe slot also an antenna but I mean from the software site. 

There are some modems based on Ericsson F5521GW but branded by Lenovo which will definitely work but what about DELL model?

 

What is more I found drivers for F5521GW but I think it is for Lenovo ThinkPad Mobile Broadband Global Ericsson F5521gw 0A36186 which is 2 times more expensive then DELL model...

 

Please write answers if you are sure, because I know that 'it might work', or you must check :smileyhappy:

 

Greetings

Damian Turczyński

I've only seen the whitelist-removed BIOS for the wifi card...not sure if that works for wwan as well.

if it is a whitelist removed bios firmware then it should work for both.

Go down the path of Hackintosh (that's the yellow brick road), and you'll find other forums with links to the patched BIOS.

 

Is redirection to a redirection to the direction of a patched BIOS allowed here?  :-\
