Lenovo Ideapad Y510 Wireless card Error NL8MB1000 Motherboard

I have a Lenovo Ideapad Y510 Laptop that I bought a new motherboard (NL8MB1000) for, I put it together and when I start it up says the following Unsupported wireless network device detected.  System halted

I put the wireless card I had in my old motherboard so I know it works. What is funny if I put it into the other slot which it for the two wires it don't have the error do I have it wrong ?

See pictures 1 the error 2 the cards how I have them with the error

Thank you

P.S.. I have  looked around to see if I could find the correct location for the two different cards

System 2.0 Ghz

1 gig memory

no hard drive yet
will be vista

hi todd23,

 

The two mini PCI-E slots on the Lenovo Y510 are for the following devices:

 

WLAN module - 3 antennas

3G/TV module - 2 antennas

 

In this thread, it's discussed that the Lenovo Y510 has a whitelist that restricts unsupported WLAN module on a specific mini PCI-E slot. Inserting an unsupported card will give you the "Unsupported wireless network device detected" error message.

 

It's possible that the 3G/TV mini PCI-E slot doesn't have a restriction while the WLAN slot does.

 

 

 

 

Hope this helps

hi todd23,

 

Yes, you can use the other mini PCI-E slots with 2 antennas as it supports the data signaling of your WLAN card (although some WLAN modules that requires 3 antennas may not function correctly using only 2 antennas)
