G50-30: replace wifi card

2019-11-20, 23:02 PM

Having a G50-30 with a malfunctioning Atheros AR956x I would very much like to avoid BIOS whitelist or to be able to include my replacement (Intel) WiFi card. Of course at my own risk. But this being a dead platform the consequence of loosing my hardware do not scare me a lot. So any advice on extending the life of my G50-30 barely survivig the giant Windows 10 would be deaply appreciated.
