X61s will not accept Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN

2009-04-18, 0:40 AM

Greetings all!

 

I have a Lenovo X61s that I purchased, and I have decided to upgrade the wireless card in it so that I can use the 802.11n that I have at home.

 

When I installed the new adapter in the Mini-PCIe slot and restarted the device I got an error message saying the the card was not supported and had to be removed.  Per the X61 matrix (http://shop.lenovo.com/ISS_Static/merchandising/US/PDFs/X61_X61s_USEN_02.pdf) the 4965AGN is supported. 

 

Has anyone else seen this?

 

Regards,

TC Labby

The BIOS has a whitelist of supported wireless cards. You need a Lenovo branded 4965agn card or else the BIOS will not allow you to boot the computer until you remove the card. The Intel 4965agn wireless card you are looking for is the FRU 42T0865.
