Very soon (as in tomorrow) I am getting a Thinkpad L520. I was wondering what the compatibility normally is for one of these sorta units. Its basically a cheaper T520 case and screen wise, but for hardware its all the same. Is there anything I should look out for as a problem?

Um... Well I just looked at the label for the BXB6 in the docs. The one I tested was out of a macbook. I don't know if that makes a huge difference (and no I wasn't testing it in a mac).

Yeah that never listed anything.

I'm almost curious if the wifi chip is blocked in the bios or isn't compatible with the laptop somehow.... Hmmm.

I tried the manager and I couldn't get it to ID anything. Am I missing something here? Send an image if you can!

As for mPCIe and mPCI, both actually. For the moment just mPCIe but I will be tackling mPCI very soon, and have in some testing.

So I've been busy. Busy enough to not be able to work on my project with aros, icaros specifically, to be able to work on network stuff. I just want to throw in my issues here that I have found as I go.

So for starts, I am assuming that the Networking menu is the only networking tool and its the only thing described in the manual. With that, according to this page:

https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Aros/Pla ... ort#Mini_PCI_.28Laptop.29

The Atheros AR5BXB6 is a supported wireless card, as well as the AR5BXB62, AR5005G, and the Netgear WG111V3. From what I can tell, there isn't a way to actually scan for wireless networks? (?????) Nor is there a way to add them physically. I may also be a dumbass and not know that I need to add a device configuration soooo.... I might just be stupid.

I have not tried the WG111 but I have seen confirmations of it working. I did try both of the aformentioned Atheros chips and neither of them worked, despite being listed. Now, I'm not sure if drivers were just made and never tested, or what not, but at least on my end this stuff isn't doing it.

So am I missing something? I'm going to go through the list of chipsets and wireless cards and try to get them all tested on what I have available and take note of them in this first post and then attack onward from there.

I know that the HD4400 works on my Lenovo y40-70. I think one of the iris chips is supported? I know the 4400 and the GMA chips all work, or at least should all work.

I suggest to look at what chips have similar architectures to the HD4400 and if the iris chips aren't supported, and you want to work on them, try them out!

Hmmm, alright. Whenever I dev for a system I don't just look at it like a piece of paper to draw on I try to rip it open and build from the blocks inside and exploit it.

If theres already a driver for the cards in the macs I'll be interested to find it. All my macs have broadcom chips.

Thanks for the advice.
