Does HP 8530w support Wifi 802.11n?

Does HP 8530w support Wifi 802.11n?

According to vendor site HP 8530w supports 802.11n draft mode. My Windows 7 tell me that network card is 5100 ABG and know nothing about N mode (guys from Intel forum mentioned, that 802.11N versions must ended with N letter, e.g. 5100 ABN). Not sure if it matter, but my laptop model id is #FU462EA.

"As it often happens answer is ""It depends"". It the case it depends from a country where your laptop was purchased. 802.11n wifi adapter includes in all HP 8530w models except 3 countries: Ukraine, Russia and Pakistan.

Any ideas why HP team made so strange country based choice?"

Those countries regulatory do not allow 802.11n - but are just starting to do so, later this year 802.11n devices will appear there."
