SOLVED Lenovo G50-70 wifi card socket type

Hi All,

 

I'd like to know what socket type for the G50-70 wifi card slot is. 

 

Can anyone verify if it is a Mini PCI-E slot (I doubt that it is)

Thanks

 

EDIT: I just found out it's NGFF socket. The wifi card will use NGFF socket.

Re: Lenovo G50-70 wifi card socket type

The socket that your WiFi card is occuping is a Mini PCIE slot, but it will not accept other devices than what is listed as an upgrade for your existing card in the "white list".  You can view your list of upgrades by looking at the parts listing for your notebook under the support tab of this site.

 

Here is a link to the Service Manual in PDF - will open in new tab when clicked:

 

Lenovo G50 series Manual

 

Look at the listing of WiFi parts on page 80 for what is available for use / upgrade.  Also - the included schematic may show something more of the socket as it really is good for detail looks when you zoom in tight.

 

Good luck.

I have already taken the wifi card out, and the socket is different compared to that of Mini PCI-E. I can confirm that mine is NGFF
