Lenovo G500s Laptop Wireless Card

2016-05-07, 21:28 PM

Hello,

 

I am having trouble with my daughters laptop. It will only connect if I am like 5 feet from my router. This is the only laptop or device, I am having problems with. I have uninstalled and re-installed the latest drivers for the card and she is running Windows 8 64bit edtion. It has a Atheros AR9485WB-EG wireless card installed. She told me she has been having problems on and off for a while now, but neglected to tell me since she did not use it much before now. Does anybody know what cards this can be replaced with. I heard only certain cards will work with this laptop or bios. Any help would be extremely welcomed and appreciated.

 

Thanks

Hello and welcome,

 

The whitelisted cards are shown on page 85 of the Hardware Maintenance Manual - Notebook

 

Please keep in mind that a card must be a whitelisted model AND have a Lenovo FRU number to pass the BIOS check.

 

It might be worth checking that the antenna cables are firmly connected to the existing card.

Hello,

 

Thank you for the information. I should have thought about looking in the manual. But I do not even see the model that is in there on the list. I have removed the antennas and replaced them firmly.

 

Thanks again
