Killer 1650x Wi-Fi 6 card in T61p?

Is there a way I can install this Killer 1650x Wi-Fi 6 card in a T61p?

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07Q4 ... DKF2&psc=1

Maybe with this adapter?

Re: Encompass is the OEM Lenovo Source for T61p Batteries

"wow" is right! I hope it lives up to my hopes. The X61 and the T61p Thinkpads we own are not used for fun. They are used in my business to earn a profit. I use them because of their size. The X61 is small and is my daily driver. The T61p 15.4" widescreens are huge and allow me to show two different...

Actually it is specifically made for Windows 10.
It works ok on my X61.

Is this the current Middleton's BIOS for the X61?

If not where can I find the most current?

Please post up your experience. Because when I disconnected the BT daughter card IIRC, the AC7260 BT would not engage. So I just updated the BT daughter card for $12 on ebay. In fact I have one on the table to install on my wife's T61p.

Re: SOLD: T61p 15.4" planar/systemboard post 08/08 1104A2 dated 256 MB NVIDIA FX 570M

Quick question since you likely know the answer, I am looking at T61p with a date of 08/02 on the sticker. Does that mean it was manufactured in 2008, February? Or in 2002, August?

And what is the cutoff date for the bad chip?
