Intel PRO/Wireless 5100/5300 AGN compatable with T61P ?

2008-10-03, 20:23 PM

Reading that the 5300 has a better distance.  Anyone know if its compatable to swap out an abgn with this?

 

I would guess it has to be purchased via Lenovo so the Bios will read the card.

 

tnx

the T61p BIOS does not have the 5100/5300 whitelisted.

So, I would think that it is compatable?  I can't find it under parts on Lenovo.com.

 

tnx

"not white-listed" means that you will get a system error message at boot time if you install one!

 

Cheers,
