    I'm pretty sure that wifi card in my laptop is WiFi Link 1000 BGN. Until the new driver release (Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers for IT Administrators 15.2.0) it was, in fact, WiFi Link 1000 BGN.

    After installing the new version 15.2.0 my card is detected as "Centrino Wireless-N 1000". Are they the same?

    Thanks for helping.

    It does not matter what the name is as long as it works. Name is Just a string of words inserted in the Driver software, it can be change to read Wireless from "Ferengi" and it still will work as it should.
