Y50-70 Intel 3160 Wireless says unauthorised



My Y50 currently has Atheros AR956x but recently upgrade my internet and the AR956x can't get past 50mb. After searching for a while I finally found the whitelist for wifi cards and found the intel 3160 would work. I have put in it but when i turn it back on it says unauthorised wireless card remove it etc.


I have tried preinstalling the drivers inscase that was it, it wasn't.


I have searched online for hours and everything seems to come back to that it should work.


So anyone know why it isn't?


Thanks in advance

You need a Lenovo Intel 3160 card with Lenovo part number on label to pass whitelist.

Others will fail.
