Running Intel 5300AGN on T61p instead 4965AGN

2008-09-27, 12:12 PM

Hi

is it possible to install the new Intel 5300AGN mini PCIe instead of the original 4965AGN?

Why? just for fun 

 

regards

 Martin

 

T61p 6460-8ZG with XP-SP3

if it is not from Lenovo/IBM parts bin, then you will get an error during the bootup or it wont be recognised. So remember that when you change your parts, also it may avoid your warranty if anything happens, the card is not a customer replaceable unit.

if it is from Lenovo then they will probably work, what is the major benefit of the 5300 AGN card over your old???
