Re: Lenovo z710 wireless card upgrade

ok so after doing some research i now see it has to be a lenovo approved or a actual lenovo model 3160 and the one i bought from the company was suppose to be for a lenovo but i dont know how to tell whether it is or not. oviously it's not since it doesn't work. so i just searched the lenovo shop and you guys dont sell the card directly so how can i make sure i buy one that is approved to be used in my laptop?
