Driver for Centrino Advanced-N 6250 Wimax card on T510

#1 Post by WizardOfBoz » Fri Dec 22, 2017 10:02 pm

The wifi card in my wife's T510 died. I bought what I thought was the most advanced, fasted replacement that would still be on the machine's whitelist. I got an Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6250 card, FRU 60Y3195. I installed it and the machine booted, but could not find drivers for Windows Pro 10-64. Tnhe intel site says that they don't support this card anymore. After goofing around for about ten minutes, I read up on using Win 8 drivers on Win 10. I did. The card works (or at least Device Manager says "This device is working properly".

The card costed me about 10 bucks, shipping from China included. This info may help others.

Is there a better, faster, more supported card that I could use in the T-510? Right now, I'm only using two of the three antennae.

Look for a modded BIOS by TTAV134 for the T510, with whitelist removed.
Then install any card that fits and you like, even AC.
Lovely day for a Guinness! (the Real Black Stuff). And pigs CAN fly! :mrgreen:
