T43 wlan card 1802 issue

#1 Post by ebaraldo » Thu Aug 02, 2018 3:43 pm

Hi, I've got a problem with my t43 2668: the 1802 unauthorized pcie card error.

The card is a BCM4318, if I install a 2200bg or 2915abg (probably?) i'll not facing this error anymore but first I would like to try with custom bios that ignore the whitelist.

I've already tried with a "corrective patch" ( https://www.retroacademy.it/2016/06/14/ ... 01c9/2547/ ) but dont'work.
I've founded the SLIC2.1 rom but i've got xubuntu installed so I can't run winphlash. Then i've tried with a bootable usb with freedos and phlash16 but probably I miss something or simply i'm not so skilled :|
I've tried to reinstall a windows os like ME or 2000 for running winphlash but i've quit for some issues during the installation (probably i'll try another time with xp).
Can I try to load a modded bios with lenovo utility update? ( https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/it/it/downloads/ds013781 )...and how?

I've read that the t43 is the hardest to fix for this error..
Someone have any advice for the easiest way? I lost 3 days in bankruptcy attempts

Thanks in advantage

Ok worked. I had to install winXP and run winphlash because it was the simpliest method. Now reinstall xubuntu.

Thanks for the links.
