Exhange IBM ThinkPad T60 X60 R60 Z60E 3945ABG 2 39T5578

ThinkPad X60 carried Intel 3945ABG wireless network card. But we'd like to changed it into ThinkPad 11a/b/g Wireless LAN Mini-PCI Express Adapter. FRU 39T5578--made by atheros, using AR5006EX chipset. Stronger wireless ability than 3945ABG., which could work on T60 X60/S R60 Z60T Z61

PDF manual and installation and removal links could be find at wireless4laptop.com

We took x60 for example

First of all, we will remove Keyboard first :

Whether after dismantling, and then to remove Upper Case.

This picture can be seen, whether to block bamboo shoot in front , Mini-PCI the one that is in both sides Mini-PCI Express.

So long as pull the card gently, Mini-PCIe card jumps up:

This is that the iron plate below the hand district is put in Upper Case right side; It was originally the heat dissipation that would strengthen the wireless network chip to never expected but turned into a great heat source with anti-interference, whether we can say fuselage most hot even if above the iron plate , that is to say right side put the hand district in using.

This is behavior after changing Thinkpad ABG, the same place, the same wireless sharing device , good Atheros chip leads your signal to have full dose, Intel chip of chicken ribs lets your news of accepting be unqualified:
