Working wireless AC card for z710?

Been trying in vain to find a wirless AC card that's whitelisted on this laptop. 

Z710 ideapad 

Serial Number: **********

 

This is actually the second ideapad we have. Tried to take the dual band wifi card from our older one and put it in this laptop, but when we do it says it's unauthorized.

That wifi card was an intel dual band AC 7260

FRU: 04X6010

Pin: 20200555

 

How does this wifi card work in one ideapad, but not the other? What AC card will work in this laptop?

Moderator note: serial number removed to prevent abuse.

Re: Working wireless AC card for z710?

@malvin_lenovo Just so I can be sure, this card you linked does support 5ghz? Because the card itself does not say AC on it. It says N. 

The card that came with this machine is an Intel wireless N 7260 04X6011 fru 20200556 and it doesnt support 5ghz, so I would like to be sure the one you recommended will do the job.

Also doesnt explain why the one we tried to put in did not work, as both ideapads are z710 but it only works in the older one, unless only some z710s support that card.

Hi Never_More,

 

Thanks for replying.

We can oly guarantee that the OEM parts on the Hardware Maintenance Manual would work.

According to page 73 of the Hardware Manual, wireless AC is not listed as FRU parts. If it's not in the list, it will not be detected in BIOS.

The  N 7260 should work for this model.

 

Regards
