Lenovo G510 and Intel Wireless-AC 7260 Wifi card

2014-05-19, 17:07 PM

Hi

 

I have a Lenovo G510 i7-4700MQ laptop and I want to upgrade its exisiting Wifi card with a more enhanced Wifi card, that is, Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 + Bluetooth 4.0. 

 

Is my laptop able to support this new Wifi card and is it in its wifi whitelist. Please elaborate and help me upgrading the wifi card.

 

I am anxiously waiting for a kind response. Thanks in advance.

Why Lenovo doesn't allow its customers to upgrade their Lenovo laptops with Wifi cards of their own choice. I am really sorry to say that it is such a shameful act by Lenovo.

In summary, I must say that I have a really power computing machine by Lenovo (I appreciate) with a cheap, third class and out-dated Wifi card that can't be upgraded.

I have the exact same problem and I am not leaving like that. The existing wifi is card is the WORST even compared to the cheapest laptop.

@Solid_Cruver

We need a non whitelisted bios!

I've been looking around with this same issue as well, and have been extremely disappointed. Coming from a 5 year old machine that was a budget laptop for the time, I never expected my new G510 to perform laughably worse when it came to wifi (which is a shame because its a great machine otherwise).

 

If the network card really can't be upgraded then color me remorseful for this purchase, because I can't get a reliable  connection 10 yards from my router. Truly depressing.

I am very interested to know if the AC3160 works.

The WiFi card installed is a complete joke!
