Hi everyone,

Doing a rebuild of my Lenovo X61 into a Kali Linux "Uberbook", and I am looking for recomendations for the internal NIC. I have a modified BIOS that will allow me to install any internal NIC that I want. Ccurrently I am running a Atheros Ar5B195 w/ Bluetooth 3.0, however, this card is not a "true" wifi N in that it lacks the connector for the third antenna.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

are you looking for a mini or a half mini card?

Hi vector,

I would prefer a half but I am not to picky.

well it depends on what fits in your laptop. do you have half mini slots or are you looking to put a half mini card in a full mini slot with an adapter?

I currently have a half mini with an adapter.

are you looking for a specific chipset? what is it about the ar9285 chipset that you dont like, aside from the single stream N?
