Re: Lenovo U430 5GHz AC Networking Upgrade

Hello,

 

Great.

 

I placed my order from ovolink@ebay based on your order confirmation link

Sorry for the long delay, I'm pretty busy atm.

Returning to this topic.

 

I can confirm that my brand new adapter from ovolink@ebay works with U430.

 

I'm enjoying now 5GHz & AC wifi network capability.

Re: Lenovo U430 5GHz AC Networking Upgrade

Marcus and Agata,

 

This question might be outdated from the original inquiry with Windows 10 being out, but here is my question.

 

Per the blog, your screenshot of the advanced properties of the 7260 AC chip shows that the chip is running through the 802.11n channel, not 802.11ac. Can you confirm the steps you had to do for windows to activate wifi to the 802.11AC channel once you replaced the chip and turned your computer on?

 

Is there also a new chip that you recommended for Windows 10 that is compatible for the U430p?

 

Thanks,

Re: Lenovo U430 5GHz AC Networking Upgrade

I know this is an old thread but I wanted to confirm that I picked up a 04X6010 card and it did indeed work.  I can now connect to my wireless ac 5ghz ssid with no problems.  Works in windows 10 and Fedora linux just fine.

Again, this is an old thread, but I can confirm that a 04X6090 works in my Lenovo U430 touch.
