Re: Hard to change wirless card in lpatop to N standard?
Yes and no, maybe.
The wireless NIC in my Thinkpad is an Intel 2200BG, which is a "miniPCI"
card, so presumably other miniPCI wireless NICs would plug right in. Don't
know if other makes are configured similarly.
However, according to what I read on the Thinkpad forums, IBM (now Lenovo)
boobytrapped the BIOS so that only IBM-specific cards will actually work
in the machine without performing some tricks not known to ordinary
mortals. Don't know if other makers are similarly nasty.
