Can I Use 2 WiFi Cards in My T60p?

#1 Post by nightninja96 » Tue Aug 13, 2019 6:56 pm

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? This would really help-out because I'm working on a Linux project that could use two simultaneous connections :D
Thanks

That's the WWAN slot. Unfortunately, on the T60, T60p and X60 it's USB-only. It only became PCIe + USB on the succeeding model (T61, T61p, X61) due to the Turbo Memory card.

On a very limited amount of machines it might be possible.
On T60? No idea.
But read what they say about the WWAN port: http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads ... rk.793439/
Why not try a wifi dongle in a USB port instead?

If you want it internally, maybe a USB WiFi adapter + one of these.
