I need to use speciffically Intel 5300 based WiFi link for data analysis purpose. so i want to install it into R61 thinkpad which already house intel pro 3945 abg card.
As far as i know it uses only two antenna's while 5300 need 3 antenna's.
Did Thinkpad R61 model incluide 3 antenna's in it body by default and keeping 1 antenna as spare as in my case??
if not What if i use 5300 with two antenna's only (speed do not matter much just data analysis purpose)
there are variouse mini PCIe to PCIe x1 converters available, Can I use this 5300 link with desktop PC through this converter??
I had checked personally PC motherboard possess PCIe x1 slot.
For refference I had incluided images of WiFi card and converter
