Is there any 5Ghz wpa2 -aes support?The Intel Windows driver *supposedly* supports all WPA & WPA2 variants on both radios. XWLAN and the WPA supplicant *should* support WPA2 with AES on the 5GHz radio, but I have not tested this (I don't have access to an 802.11a AP which does WPA, interestingly enough).

Per Aron's comments, the W500 has a mini-PCI-Express slot and the
T42 has a mini-PCI, which are different architectures. Look for an
Intel 3945abg (8086:4227) or a 4965agn (8086:4229, or 8086:4230)
card to replace the 5300 in the W500. I have tested both of these
with GenMAC with good results. The difference is really whether
you need the 802.11n capability now or anticipate needing it in
the future. I *believe* the 802.11b/g & 802.11a radios in both
cards are about the same, at least in terms of performance
(someone please correct me if my recollection is lacking). Also
note that the 4965agn card supports *draft*-n, as it predates the
ratification of the 802.11n standard. Thus, it may not be fully
compatible with equipment which has been released more recently.
