Re: Lenovo Y500 Network Card Upgrade

Hi Sievert,




I don't think there is any AC wlan card among the whitelisted parts  from the hardware manual. 

Changing the BIOS is not recommended because of the danger of bricking the systemboard.

You may check on the discussion here.


A simplier alternative may be using an external USB AC Wifi adapter instead.
