Welcome to the forum!
You'll need a modded BIOS in order to use that card in R500. Stock BIOS will not allow the machine to boot with it.

Modified BIOS, then whom am I going to reference this about then?
- Or should I just give up and buy a new laptop/notebook?.

I don't quite understand your question...
Your call on whether a new laptop is required.

There are forums that specialize in that type of mod. Google is your friend.

this dual wireless is not better than intel(R) WiFi Link 1000 BGN.
I bought one T540p 2 weeks ago. I try the speed test. it just shows 2-3Mbps. My largest speed is 6M. And my old laptop HP with the intel 1000 BGN have the 5-6Mbps speed.
I try it using the cable. it shows 6Mbps. So you know......................
