5ghz wlan flex 2-14

Hello,

 

I have a Flex 2-14 and want to change my wireless card to a 5ghz card. I found a list with compatible cards but don't find partnumbers or a store where I can buy compatible wlan cards.

 

3160NGW, QCNFA34AC, QCNFA335, RTL8723BE, BCM943142Y, BCM943162ZP

 

Perhaps someone has already 5 Ghz wlan running?

 

Thank you.

 

Greetings

 

Alex

Hi.

 

You can buy here http://aliexpress.com with delivery from China.

 

For example:

 

BCM943162ZP - https://ru.aliexpress.com/wholesale?catId=0&initiative_id=SB_20161015213725&SearchText=BCM943162ZP

 

Are you sure that these cards are compatible with Flex 2-14?

The answer is "Yes!" The Lenovo Flex 2 14/15 can be upgraded with a compatible wireless-AC card. The card detailed below can be installed successfully in the Flex 2-14 and it's pretty much a plug-n-play device under Windows 10. Drivers are installed automagically so that the 2GHz and 5GHz wireless and Bluetooth can be accessed. I have two Lenovo Flex 2 laptops each running this exact wireless card.

 

Make sure the wireless card you install matches the details listed below. Or else you'll get an "incompatible wireless module detected" error message when you try to boot the laptop.

 

Name: Intel Dual-Band Wireless-AC 3160

Model: 3160NGW

FCC ID: PD93160NGU

TA: H45043-003

FRU: 04X6076

EC: 770009

 

A genuine "Lenovo branded" Intel Dual-Band Wireless-AC 3160 wireless card can be purchased from: http://us.eetgroup.com/i/04X6076-Lenovo-Wireless-Module

 

I've attached a picture of the correct wireless card. Smiley Wink
