T30 BIOS (non working wifi card)

#1 Post by yakuza » Mon Feb 06, 2017 1:22 pm

Ive done a T30 upgrade today. Changed the CPU for a 600mhz higher clocked, added ram (total of 2gb now), threw in a 60 gig HDD at 5400rpm, and added a wifi card from a toshiba satellite. And, everythigns fine, widnows 7 booted, i tried plugging the wifi card in and it acts as an unauthorized. Should i get a new one? (i mean, an original thinkpad one), or flash the bios? Anyone can hook me up with a bios file + instructions?

For the T30 you only need the NO-1802 mod: http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Problem_w ... twork_card

Where does it say that?
if you have a bootable floppy, get no-1802.com, copy that onto the floppy, boot and run it (without the new wifi-card).
