WTB: wifi 5300 card for T500.

#1 Post by thinkpadcollection » Mon Dec 28, 2015 7:05 pm

Wanted: one wifi 5300 card (full length), FRU: 43Y6459 used in these list: Ebay sells them for 13 to 22 dollars each. One seller last time sent me wrong 5300 for unknown computer, yet works in a R61 with whitelist removed but still needs wifi card to finish off my T500 build-out.

Thinkpad SL400, SL500
Thinkpad T400, T500
Thinkpad W500, R500
Thinkpad W700, W700DS
Thinkpad X200, X200S, X200

I have the 5100 that came out of my x200 if you're interested, having said that, the shipping to Canada might make it not worth it.

Put in a modded BIOS with whitelist removed, anything will fit after that.

What happened to that reply? Well, For many reasons and modded bios on same download site is riddled with malware that I had to fix my XP after that bundled download executed first then downloaded what I wanted. But the bios is not working. But I eventually got one part working but whitelist is not fixed.

This is why I needed lenovo 5300 wifi card.

Cheers, thinkpadcollection.

The standard download is malware-free...
Were you perhaps dumb enough to use a download-wizard?
