Y540 Wifi card upgrade to Wifi 6

2020-05-20, 8:30 AM

Considering changing out the Wifi card in my Y540 to the AX200 for Wifi 6 capability.

 

Current Wifi card: Wireless-AC 9560 160MHz

 

Laptop: Legion Y540-15IRH Laptop (Lenovo) - Type 81SX (was a custom parts selection model)

 

 

Curious if there would be any issues for switching out wifi cards in legion laptops such as whitelisted parts, software support or warranty issues.

Hi Mecro,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

As what you have guessed, WLAN cards are implemented by OEM limited to the whitelist.

 

Those listed Compatible here in parts lookup are the certified cards supported to work.

 

There is no guarantee other cards would be supported so purchasing is not recommended without first testing it with a spare for best practice.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

Hi All,

 

Greetings.

 

As mentioned on the above reply " Those listed Compatible here in parts lookup are the certified cards supported to work."

 

PN 01AX709 Wireless,CMB,LTN,NFA435A

PN 01AX768 Wireless,CMB,IN,9560 NV M2

PN 01AX795 Wireless,CMB,IN,9462 NV M2

 

 

There is a whitelist and Intel® Wi-Fi 6 AX200 is not included so it may end up not recognizing it.

 

Regards

Confirmed. AX200NGW works with Y540. Bought on Aliexpress. Mine is Y540 - 17 but I can assume that all of them works
