Hello and welcome,


The whitelisted wifi models and FRU numbers are in the Hardware Maintenance Manual - Lenovo G70-70, G70-80, Z70-80


As you may know, a card must be a listed model and have a matching Lenovo FRU number to pass the whitelist. Just matching the model is not sufficient.

I have tried to figure out which adapter was installed in my Z70-80 but no sure way to know (short of opening it up). Device manager list this. But to me it could be 3 or 2  antenna according to the PDF linked above. It may also support 11AC but there are no driver setting options for modes either which makes doing anything with this WiFi adapter extremely diffiicult.
