Having successfully added my Mini Pci’s information to my R40’s BIOS (http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?t=65155
) my attention has turned to FnF5 and how to fully activate it. At the moment the card is not seen in the Wireless Radio list that FnF5 produces. Ender kindly gave me the following information .......... but when I tried modifying my AcAdaptersInfo.dll, Access Connections froze. Clearly something was wrong ..... I don’t know if some form of checksum is used?
Has anyone had any success with this problem and can you provide any pointers?
• If you don't
have Access Connections installed, but use Fn-F5 with Hotkey driver, you just need to open TpFnF5.exe in some hex editor. Search for some ID of a supported card and replace it with ID of your card. You can see your card ID in windows device manager, under properties; it’s called something like Hardware ID. If should be in form of VEN_1234&DEV_5678, search the TpFnF5.exe for DEV=5678 (in plaintext, not hex) and replace it with correct ID.
• If you do
have Access Connections installed, AcFnF5.exe takes over and will use AC libraries to detect supported cards. WWAN card IDs seem to be located in AcAdaptersInfo.dll and Acon.dll, there's more for WLAN.
One added problem for easy editing are that the strings are in Unicode. Click on the link below if you wish to see how it will look in the hex editor. Again you need to replace a supported card with the one you have.
