Lenova G580 Windows 32 Bit Wifi Card Update

Hello All,


My laptop details:Lenova G580, Machine type model 2189, Intel I5, 2.50Ghz, 8GB Ram, 500GB HDD


My current wifi card supports only 2.4Ghz Wifi. Therefore I want to update my wifi card which supports 2.4 Ghz wifi and 5Ghz wifi so is it possible to do this and also will this make any issues to my hardware in future? 


My current wifi card is a Atheros AR9285 I am thinking to update to Wireless AR5BHB92 AR9280 PCI-E Half Mini Card Dual-band 2.4/5.0GHz 300 Mbps 802.11a/b/g/n Card 


Please let me know if is it possible to do this.

Hi  Stratocruiser , 


Welcome to the Community Forums. 


Recommended whitelist wlan card upgrade from the hardware manual (item 16 page 102) :


20002484 WLAN, WiFi 1x2 BGN + WiMAX, Intel 6150NX MOW M PCIE NB HMC (LI)

20002543 Intel 6150NX BSB M PCIE NB HMC (LI) 

20002505 WLAN, WiFi 1x1 BGN, Cbt BCM4313 MOW M PCIE NB HMC

20002357 WLAN, WiFi 1x1 BGN, Liteon AR9285 HB95 BGN MOW NB

20002501 WLAN, WiFi 1x1 BGN+BT4.0, Cbt BCM4313HMGB BGN+BT HMC 


You may also review the discussions on this post as fellow members have successful upgrades with the suggested part for other option as other WLAN card would just not be detected by the BIOS . 


Hope this helps answer your query.
