My System Specs

I modded the BIOS for my 3820TG so I can use the latest drivers without having to worrying about not being able to use new drivers, as I can switch and disable/enable the 5470 in the BIOS. Having said that, the 5470 is EOL and there's no more new Catalyst drivers available. Well last I checked anyways.
Like this? TP-Link TL-WN861N Wireless MINI-PCI Network Adapter 802.11B/G/N MIMO 2T2R ?

searching for "mini PCI wireless" should get you a few hits. :)
