My Y510 does not recognize my new Linksys WPC600 Wireless-n Laptop Adapter

2008-11-22, 5:56 AM

Product Info

 

I put in the card and it clicks but it doesn't seem secure in there. It can easily be pulled out. It feels like it's not holding the adapter at all. When I insert it, Vista does not recognize or acknowledge it. Does the Y510 accept only a certain type of network card? Because the click from 'tray' seems strange and unique.

 

The card definitely functions fine because I tried it on a Dell Laptop and it recognizes the card immediately.

 

Do I have to download a certain driver for my Y510 to recognize the Linksys Laptop Adapter?

 

Thanks!

This adapter is PC Card.

Ideapads and other new laptops use Express Card.

They're incompatible.

Ah I see

 

Then This

 

Hmm they don't seem to be selling in any BB or FS around Toronto. Should I settle for a USB adapter? I heard they are vastly superior. For me, range is critical.
