Hello everyone, I'm trying to revive an old Amilo La 1703. For that I would like to replace the old SiS wireless card with a newer (and hopefully better) one I have lying around. It's intel 512AN_MMW WiFiLink 5100. The BIOS Whitelist removal request thread asks me to provide info about the new card by hotplugging it (putting it in when the boot process is just past the BIOS). Problem is, however I try (with this method, or just putting the card in "cold"), the system boots fine but the card is never recognized. and i mean the hardware; not the internet connection. with Linux, i should be able to see something with "lspci", "lsusb" or looking at boot logs. But, nada. The card is recognized just fine in another laptop. The original card is recognized in both laptop. My Logic tells me that it cannot be a BIOS issue, or can it? Thanks for helping me to get my brains back on track, starting to feel a bit mushy. This is not (yet) a request for anything, but this is the current BIOS: support.ts.fujitsu.com/Download/Showdescription.asp?SoftwareGUID=5CEA9FA3-3801-4415-8402-74F92B28C307 Most of the hardware is VIA Technologies. The original card is SiS 163u, or sis163u. could there be some hardware incompatibilities, even though it works on another laptop?
