I read in a thread that it was very easy to replace your wireless card, and presto - yes it is. But unfortunately, after replacing with an Intel Ultimate Wireless card, I now receive a "Not suport wireless LAN" boot message and have to hit F1. The card works fine, however.
- Anyone know of any other cards that are supported other than the crappy Intel Wifi 1000 card?
- Anyone know how to disable the "Hit F1 to continue" message at boot on this laptop?
Both may not be possible, but I thought I'd try..

Im curiuos too. Im about to order the intel 6300 and a seagate momentus xt for y460, but Im unsure if the wifi card will work. The wifi link 1000 is crap and needs replacement asap. I read on a forum that someone replaced the card with a ultimate and tsaid it worked fine, I cant remember the forum however. Glad I read this though, Ill try the 6200 instead.

I just ordered a 6200 as well as a replacement; I will have it on Friday and post my results then.
Unfortunately it looks like it uses 2 antennas, not 3, from the picture. There is a third antenna in the y460p that is unused.

I tried the 6200 as well today and no luck. Since all models only ship with the WiFi 1000 card, I'm afraid a BIOS mod may be the only option.
I've also read abot modifying the card (rather than the BIOS)..thanks for all of your help. I'll try sending a message to Middleton.
