T61p WiFi card upgrade possible ?

2013-10-19, 0:50 AM

Greetings All;

  I have an Intel 4965 AGN (with N working) and a WD750N dual band router. I currently get 300Mbs speed but I was wondering if there is a Lenovo upgrade card that would get the 450 Mbs on the 5gHz side ? Is there a way to get both bands enabled at once ? Just new to this recent WiFi stuff. Any help greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

Donald

There is no official upgrade path to 450Mbps.

 

You'll need a newer card and a modded BIOS in order to use it.

Cheers,

George
