Can I Use 2 WiFi Cards in My T60p?

Hello, a while ago I opened up my ThinkPad T60p to do some maintenance and noticed a second WiFi card slot on the motherboard. I am wondering if I can install a second WiFi card in my computer?

Re: CPU Issue?

Currently, I don’t have any battery in the system, but I’m running it off the stock charger... Throtlestop is saying the same thing. The only way I can get it up to stock frequency is with throttlestop’s multiplier tool.

Re: R500 and No Sound

Ok, I will definitely try that out soon, is there a common problem with the R500's audio chip? Also, there is artifacting occurring during windows animations.
