WIMAX vs X200

Hello again,

 

Do we have wimax on our x200? I see where I can insert the gsm chip but it does't seem to do anything. I have the intel 5300.

 

Please help!

Wimax do not use sim cards that slot is for your WWAN system.

The Intel 5300 does not support WiMax, you need an Intel 5350 for WiFi + WiMax support.

 

Cheers,

 

Bill

Re: WIMAX vs X200

Can I use my sim card with my wireless 3g internet data plan to go online with my laptop x200 when no wifi can be found?

 

If so how do I set this up?

 

Thanks (so much)

Re: WIMAX vs X200

Did you order the laptop with the WWAN option? There should an antenna on the side of the screen, if you have the WWAN feature.
