WiFi Link 5300 - Latest Drivers?

2009-08-30, 11:03 AM

I have been trying to sort a number of wifi connection problems on my new T400s. I downloaded the latest drivers at Lenovo Support. Still have problems. Checked the Intel support site - their latest drivers are newer and several versions later than those on Lenovo's site. It looks like they address a number of my problems. But Intel advises strongly against using their generic drivers instead of the version from the laptop manufacturer because the OEM version will have been "customised".


Can anyone tell me if there new "customised" drivers for the 5300 on their way from Lenovo?


Or can anyone tell me if I can safely download and install the latest Intel driver?
