Upgrades for Lenovo W500

For anyone interested. It is possible to upgrade your aging Lenovo W500 to 802.11ac wifi, if you have flashed your BIOS without the whitelist. Upgrades I’ve done.

– WWAN F5521GW (Still 3G, but supposedly a bit faster than the original F3507g).
– WiFi Intel 7260 (this is a half hight mini-pcie card, so you need a extension plate).
– SSD
