What dual band wifi cards are approved for the S410p? I tested a random Intel card and got the following message: 104-Unsupported wireless network device detected. System Halted.
Is the whitelist available online somewhere? I couldn't find it.

Hello and welcome,
The best source I know is the parts list in the Hardware Maintenance Manual - IdeaPad S410p, S410p Touch, S510p, S510p Touch . WLAN cards are on page 80. I don't see any that are dual band from the description - but I haven't checked each one individually.
As you probably know, to pass the BIOS whitelist check a card must be an approved model and have a Lenovo FRU number (firmware modified for Lenovo).

Thank you for your quick reply!
Just checked the document, and indeed only BGN cards there (2.4GHz), no ABGN (2.4+5GHz)... pitty.
I guess they don't provide this as an option then.
Thanks for your help.
