Lenovo G50-45 change the wireless card

I have a Lenovo G50-45 that I purchases about 2 years ago, and I have no issues with it, but I have had a couple issues with the wireless network card, it currently has a Qualcomm Atheros AR956x Wireless Network Adapter and it only has the 2.4 capability,  and I was wondering is there a card that I can replace it with that Lenovo will support, and one that is dualband?

Re: Lenovo G50-45 change the wireless card

Hi LuckyOtter313,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


The model supports dual band card with 802.11AC accepted by the BIOS whitelist using specific Lenovo part:


Part number 20200579 WirelessLan_Non_Intel, Ltn NFA345 1x1AC+BT4.0 PCIE M.2 WLAN

Part number 20200573 WirelessLan_Non_Intel, Cbt BCM43162 1x1AC+BT4.0 PCIE M.2 WLAN


Similarly discussed here that worked with fellow community member with the 20200573.


Hope this help answer your query.
