Is upgrading the Intel WiFi Link 5300 driver ourselves permitted?

2008-12-31, 22:59 PM

I obtained my T400 in November, and notice that the driver for my Intel WiFi Link 5300 wireless adapter is version 12.1.0.14 from 8/28/08.

 

On the Intel Web site, I've noticed that the driver was upgraded to 12.1.2.1 on 11/24/08:

Are we permitted to install the latest driver (including the Intel PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility for Windows Vista, or does this interfere with ThinkVantage Wireless Detection, etc.), or do we have to wait to see if Lenovo certifies this version?

 

Thanks in advance,

Mike
