Laptops that don't blacklist/whitelist NICs in the BIOS Tags: Compaq Laptops BIOS Wireless Computers Last response: April 9, 2010 8:55 AM in Computer Brands Share rkinder123 April 9, 2010 5:36:40 AM Hi all, I'm looking to purchase laptops that don't black/whitelist wireless NIC cards in their BIOS. I've read so far that Lenovo, Toshiba, Dell and HP/Compaq do this. Any others that people know about? I need the laptops to install various different mini-pci-e cards for WiFi testing. Anyone have suggestions for not-too-expensive laptops that don't restrict my freedom to change the wireless NIC?
