T61p - 4965AGN card questions

2013-09-17, 13:07 PM

Greetings;

  I was wondering if it is at all possible to enable the "N" function of the card. I am running it on a 6458-5KU. Setup is on a new WD750N wireless router with Verizon issued Westell modem. The router has 2.4 & 5.0 gHz capabilities. I have Lenovo driver version as the latest 14.xxx. installed. Are there only 2 wires to the card inside the unit with the 3rd not used ? Can one upgrade the system to the 42T0865 FRU to enable "N" capabilities ? Any knowledge greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Donald

If your current card is 4965 AG, there is no means of enabling the "N" spectrum, simply replace the card.

 

Yes, you can upgrade to 4965AGN card, just leave the middle connector open.

 

It will do 300Mbps just fine on a dual band router.

Cheers,

George
