Upgrade Lenovo Z710 with an Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260

2016-01-08, 21:40 PM

Hi!

I am planning to purcahse an Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 mini-PCI card for my Lenovo Z710. My Z710 recently does have an Intel Wireless-N 7260 wifi card which is non-dual therefore does not cooperate with my router on 5.0 GHz (only 2.4 MHz). My concern is that according to some comments on the Internet Lenovo blocks the 5.0 GHz option of the Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260. Can you confirm or deny? I would appreciate any comments on that issue. Thanks. Zoltan

Looks like someone found an AC card for the Z710.

Hi everybody,

 

 

Whoever want's to upgrade I found the solution. 

 

I bought a card from ebay with has the same FRU P/N: what's the main wlan card is. I bought , swapped and works perfectly WITHOUT any bios modding. Arrived in 2 weeks to Ireland with tracking postage.

The item arrived it's not what advertised with the FRU number but it's still accepted by the latest bios update from lenovo. 

 

You can purchase from here:

If you have any question just leave a comment or a PM.

 

 

Cheers

Hi, 

 

the link is broken on ebay. Could you give me some more info, or at least ebay details on the seller/item please? 

 

Regards

Denis

Hi,

Sorry I haven't been here for a year and I saw your message only now. What matters only that the FRU number to match on the Dual AC wifi card and you are sorted.
