Replace stock WiFi for Legion Y530

2019-03-21, 8:28 AM

Does anyone know if i can use  Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 9260 in Y530-15ICH-1060? Are there any compatibility issues?

The factory adapter is very poor and keeps disconnecting all the time.

Solved! See the solution

Hi Antimatt3r,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

The Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 9260 is not among the listed compatible parts from the hardware manual (item 8 page 64) we can not guarantee is it would be ok.

 

Other listed subsitutes compatible with the 1060 model are here in the parts lookup page (compatible tab> commodity type> Wireless LAN adapter).

 

Similar discussion here shared by fellow member using Intel 9560 as also listed in parts lookup.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

You wont know till you try. If it's the same connector and such then it should work, but Lenovo wont guarantee anything that isn't listed as compatible.

I didn't find the 9560 model on stock so I bought the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 9260 instead, and I can confirm it works like a charm.

I would also like to replace the antenna cables because one of the connectors seems to be a damaged.

Does anyone have a tutorial on how to replace the cables? Do I need to dissasembly the screen to achieve this on this particular model?

Also does anyone know which cables do I need and where can I buy some?

Thanks in advance.

I did that too, and it works fine. The original card was fru 01AX712 and I had to reconnect to wifi network every 10-15 min.
