I have been getting some weird problems in windows with my wireless card in my T60-20075CU. It would eventually drop the connection, and be unable to see any networks, and eventually it wouldn't see any networks at all.

After removing/re-installing/updating any drivers i could find for the Intel 3945ABG I decided to try swapping the wireless card. I had another 3945ABG from a non IBM laptop that I put in there and discovered the 1802 BIOS error.

After searching the forums/web, it looked like one solution was a modded bios from Middleton or zender? I have been searching for these files to no avail. Can anyone point me in the right direction to solve my problem? either to the bios or other solution?

Thanks!

So eventually found a great walk through on how to modify your bios with the zender mods. I did it to my bios in under 30 mins and it worked great. I was able to put another wireless card in, turns out my old one was just going bad.

here it is:

As I have a 2007-FRG and looking to do similar myself; seeing that you have done it; would you mind sharing the patched bios?
