E6430 - Swap WLAN with LAN adapter supported?

Does the E6430 support a LAN adapter in the mini PCI-E slot that currently holds the WLAN adapter? I'm asking this because I have a different PC (ASUS) that has a similar slot and doesn't detect the mini PCI-E LAN adapter I bought.

It's for a little project on that ASUS PC, it don't wanna end up using that LAN adapter in the laptop (wouldn't really make sense), but I want to know if it should detect or that the slot in de laptop only supports WLAN adapters. Then I know if the one I bought is broken or that I just have 2 machines that simply don't support it.

[E6430] Replace PCI-E WLAN with LAN card?

I bought a mini PCI-E LAN adapter to test in some PC. Because that PC didn't detect this card I've installed it in a E6430 to rule out card failure. However, this laptop doesn't detect the card either.


Can anyone confirm whether or not the E6430 will allow you to swap the WLAN card with a different device? Or does it only support WLAN?
