Where can I get a new wireless card for the y510p that supports 5ghz?

2014-12-01, 23:25 PM

I want to upgrade to a new wireless card that supports 5ghz, and while there's hunderds of options to choose from, I heard that lenovo locks their wireless cards so that you can only use Lenovo brand wireless card. The problem with this is, they're impossible to find and it's impossible to get any information about it anywhere

thanks, do you know for sure if the FRU 04W3814 (the one you linked) is compatible with the laptop? i.e. it'll fit and it wont' get any errors about it not being supported by Lenovo?

Try searching it in this forum. I think there is a long discussion about it which I have read. I just can't locate it at the moment.

As far as I know, the 7260 AC wireless adapter FRU #04W3814 will not work in the Y510P unless you are using a modified bios.
