I to was on that site early this morning, it was very interesting with lots on info but I need a lot more free time to go through it all and plan how I am going to go about attempting this. I was also on Bios-mods.com and they have an amazing thread on disabling the whitelist for various computers, thought I might ask if they new anything about Bios 26.
I noted a couple of different ways to produce a Bios recovery flash drive (might need to be a CD rom) and would have to try and find one that I am sure works before I go any further.
I have already downloaded the Slic modded Bios for Bios 24A and might try using that as Bios recovery as long as I have my Bios 26 recovery flash drive in hand.
I will dig around and see what I can find, probably later this week as I am slammed at the moment.
Worse case scenario I will brick it and have to fix that to. Then maybe I will give up or not!!
No chance I love a challenge and anything is possible, you just need to know how.
So all in I have decided not to purchase a generic Intel wifi card as I do not believe that is the issue (Thanks ShadowFox)
I do believe that if fast_dave has Bios Version 24A or less then he should have no problem as this upgrade has been succesfully done before on that Bios.
Oddly enough with the new antenna wires I am getting a better wifi signal at home. The new wires were thicker than the original ones so that might explian it.
Onwards and upwards for the C500.
