I read, that on some laptops there is a vendor lock for wifi cards. How do I found out if my laptop has such a lock?

You will find out when you install the card and attempt to turn on the laptop...

I think, I will take the risk and order one of these cards and report back.

That is the only way to find out. Fortunately, the cards are inexpensive and easy to sell if it doesn't work out.

I bought the card I posted up there and it arrived today. I can confirm that its fully working on my computer. No BIOS vendor lock or any other problems. Following the guide to get it working worked on first try. Thank you.

Thread can be marked as solved.
