    I re read this and now I realize that you got the usb bluetooth and usb wifi to work.
    Not the built in ones.

    Hi everyone.
    Using CF-30 mk2 since 2008.
    Today suddenly WiFi connection was lost and then I realized that my WiFi onboard card simply vanished from Device manager (Win7x32).
    Then I took the laptop home from my office for repair.
    And at home this WiFi card again was present in Device manager.
    What it could be? A "bad contact" issue?

    Could you tell me an exact name of this card? I'll try to find it somewhere...

    Also, the original card is b/g only, can I replace it with b/g/n one?

    As far as I know this Intel 5100 card is Draft N.
    Will it work with an actual 802.11n router?

    Also, is there any possibility to install 802.11ac card ???

    802.11 ac card not doable until one mods the CF 30 heavily and BIOS approved. BIOS whitelist applies. Must be a Panasonic card. I now own a CF 30 MK 2 of my very own. I love my ToughBook, named SpazzBox. Spastic Proof or go home.

    Update: My CF 30 is now running TrueOS (previously PC-BSD) a rolling release. 64 bit only. I love my CF 30 the more I use it.
