I have a thinkpad t430s and i would like to add a second WiFi card where the msata slot is. I already have one intel 6205 in its Normal spot. if I buy the same model will it work for the other slot too? Or is it only for an msata SSD? And I would like to know a list of all whitelisted WiFi cards. I do NOT want to flash a custom bios!

  • Question 2 exceeds the scope of question one, as per hardwarerecs.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic which explicitly states Have a narrow scope - Only ask for one piece of hardware at a time and focus on what you need from that item. Please click edit, remove question 2, and turn that into its own question. When you do, please specify which OS you want to check for a whitelist, for Lenovo's hardware manual download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/… has no whitelist for this Thinkpad. – K7AAY Apr 1 at 22:28

On T430s machines with three antenna connections, follow pages 72-78 of the Hardware Manual to add a second PCIe card.

However, if there's an MSATA drive card in there, you will need to remove the MSATA drive card, which would disable whatever OS is on there and make its data and apps inaccessible.
