And have a look at ebay...
See:


May be, judging by those Photos, I do have two very similar to these, but with a diffferent code on the atheros chip
and without labeling, coming from Taiwan, in a box of spares from my earlier A31p & T60/61P.

Print on the small board (white) says: 21514AV11C1*1A1, AV11C1 Rev. A.1, may be the version on ebay is a
later one.

I have a question about the port replicator for the A31p.

I have not installed it yet as I'm working on some things right now on the system, but lining it up in the back of the A31p, it looks as though it covers the two USB ports when seated on the laptop.

Is this true? If so, why would IBM cover up two USB ports in favor of a single port on the port replicator?.

IÄm using one USB port for an external drive that I'm loading programs from, and the other for a wireless mouse.
