RE: Installing Sierra Wireless MC7710 into Lenovo thinkpad T420s

2012-12-14, 19:01 PM
Guys,

Im thinking of getting t420s, but the critical condition for me is to be able to plug in Sierra Wireless MC7710,

I know that its not on the whitelist, but lets just assume that I can patch BIOS and actually make it work, will be possible technically to plug in Sierra Wireless MC7710 into t420s?

Is there a slot for it? And are there enough antenna cords for it as well?

I've seen some screens and it seems that Wi-Fi card is using 3 antenna cords and there are only 2 spare whereas MC7710 requires 3 antenna cords?
Cords are seen here - http://www.notebookreview.com/shared/picture.asp?f=58673



Could someone clarify please.

Many thanks in advance !

One of the three antenna connectors on the MC7710 is for the GPS antenna. This could mean that it could work fine with the two antennas that are available.

Don't know about T420s but there is http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?p=691048#p691048 report that the MC7710 does not fit into X220 slot.
