Don't ask how to hack password. (BIOS Passwords)

I recently bought Lenovo netbook S10-2. Original Broadcom WiFi card doesn't work in FreeBSD, and also isn't stable in Windows. So I bought well supported atheros-based card.

When system boots with the new card I get the message: "Unauthorized Wireless network card is plugged in. Power off and remove it."

From one discussion on thinkwiki I learned that this is an IBM tradition to have a white list of VID/PIDs in BIOS.

I tried to modify NVRAM (set one bit) the way the program in the above discussion does, but it didn't help.

BIOS name is 1AEC21WW(v1.12).

How can I get information which, if any, bit in NVRAM allows to disable the wifi check?
