Intel PRO/Wireless 2200 BG Mini-PCI suitable for notebook with 845MP chipset?
Posted on 2004-09-28
I have a ThinkPad T30 with Intel 845MP chipet (so it's not a Centrino system) and I'm looking for a wireless networking card capable of 802.11b and 802.11g. I would prefer a Mini-PCI card over a PCMCIA one, but the only Mini-PCI card capable of b/g found in the IBM catalogue is based on the Intel PRO 2200 BG chipset that is part of the "Centrino-family". IBM states that it is supported only on Centrino systems (T40+) but -- as it seems to be a regular Mini-PCI card -- does anyone know whether it can be used in a non-Centrino system (namely my T30 with 845MP)? I'm aware there are some cards that depend on features of specific system chipsets but have found no exact statement on this one yet.
Thanks in advance for help.
