Am new here. I am getting the y580 for gaming purpose and i came across a few friends who have issues with their wifi card. (Jeez this is 2012 )
I am mostly going to use it as a desktop so portablity isn't my thing.
Can i use a wifi usb adapter to overcome this problem? If yes can you please suggest me a good one

I would think that a USB wifi adapter would work just fine, though I have no experience with using them.
My Centrino 6205 card arrived today, installed, and it works like a champ! :-)

I see. I'm actually looking for a Intel 2200 wifi card (the one that's really from Lenovo). I'm a bit hesitant on unlocking my bios. But is it safe if I don't touch anything other than that? Hehe. Thanks!

which Bios is needed for the
Intel Centrina 6205 ? an what will i need to change the original Wifi Card with te Centrino 6205 ?
Can someone help me ?
Reason why : Intel Widi won´t work well over DNLA (streaming via NAS over Y580 to Intel Widi)
Widi off = Network Speed around 8MB/S
Widi on = Network Speed around 1MB/<-- No video works without lagging..

I wonder if the Killer Wireless-N 1103 would work well in this laptop.
Also does taping over pin-20 on the wireless cards work? I've seen that as an answer to this problem before.

I read something about installing an blacklist card and disable the wifi card in the bios, to get around the bios detection then boot into windows and see if you can enable the card in windows, it`s a pity we dont have a wifi switch.
