I purchased my T500 within the first week Lenovo had it available for US consumers to order. I was assured the machine was going to come with a WiMax card. I gave it to my daughter to use. We never tested WiMax since we did not have WiMax in our city until October of last year. Came to find out, our machine did not come with a WiMax card as was promissed. It has in it the Intel WiFi Link 5300 AGN card instead. Needless to say, I no longer feel comfortable ordering from Lenovo anymore. We got seven laptops in the house. Five of which are ThinkPads. However, we've moved over to Samsung after this unpleasant experience.
Today I wanted to see if there's an updated version of the driver I'm running for my WiFi card, to my unpleasant surprise, the driver for the Intel WiFi Link 5300 AGN card in my T500 does not exist anywhere at www.lenovo.com. I only see drivers for the Intel 5150 and the Intel 5350 cards.
Does anybody out there have any idea where I can find the latest driver for the Intel WiFi Link 5300 AGN in my duped T500 laptop?
Thank you in advance for your help.
