What are diffrences between available wireless cards for T400

2008-09-03, 15:47 PM

Am I correct that the first option is not integrated into the sytem and we should plug it into some kind of cart reader? for example Express card slot?

Am i correct that Option 2 and 3 are built-in no PCI card need to be pluged?

 

1- ThinkPad 11b/g Wireless LAN Mini PCI Express Adapter III [add $20.00 $15.00]
2- Intel WiFi Link 5100 (AGN) [add $40.00 $30.00]
3- Intel WiFi Link 5300 (AGN)

Thanks.

All are integrated adapters.

 

1- ThinkPad 11b/g Wireless LAN Mini PCI Express Adapter III [add $20.00 $15.00]

Maximum bitrate of 54 Mbps


2- Intel WiFi Link 5100 (AGN) [add $40.00 $30.00]
Maximum bitrate of 300 Mbps

Extended range versus b/g adapter

 

3- Intel WiFi Link 5300 (AGN)

Maximum bitrate of 450 Mbps

Extended range versus b/g adapter

 

The higher speeds and extended range require a "N" type router/access point or they will drop back to the b/g capabilities.
