5100/5300/5350 Wifi card compatibility with X61 Tablet?

2009-02-11, 16:47 PM

Hello folks. I have an X61T (7764-CTO) in which the wireless card seems to be failing intermittently. I'd like to replace it with a more modern one, preferably of the 5100, 5300, or 5350 variety. Are there any card w/ these chipsets that are known to work in the X61T? The only card that the Support page lists for this machine is the "ThinkPad abg wireless LAN Mini PCI Express Adapter", FRU 41A4071.

 

 

Thanks,

Andrew

I was able to run with an Lenovo branded Intel 4965.  I don't have the fru handy...

I would think if it were supported, and if lenovo still sales the device it would be on the accessories & updates page after you insert your model number on the left: http://shop.lenovo.com/us/accessories

 

But since the X61 is replaced by the X200, I don't see a lot of options under wireless & networking anymore.

 

I would also like to know if anyone has had any luck with these lenovo branded wifi/wimax cards in their X61?
