7260AC WLAN cards for Yoga 2 Pro & 2 13

2015-02-18, 10:18 AM

Almost all Yoga users experience problems with the WLAN & Bt combo cards that Lenovo supplies in these 'convertibles'.

 

Most owners would like to order the ideal replacement: the Intel 7260AC combo card.

As the BIOS white list does not accept all vversions of the 7260AC, Lenovo owners need to be careful in ordering a card.

Many people on this forum wasted a lot of extra money, as Lenovo was not capable of supplying the correct information nor the specific cards ....

 

Why doesnt Lenovo make these cards available to their customers?

Even after producing a special SAR version for the 2 13, this card is very hard to buy.

 

Please Lenovo, give your clients an option to simply order these cards.

Where?

You have already made good money of us and could earn even more to get these laptop up to real life specifications ...

 

 

Intel 7260AC Lenovo SAR specific (20200617) samples for the Yoga 2 13:

If you want to buy these cards for a Yoga 2 13, make sure you order the correct 20200617.

As this Lenovo P/N is not always printed on the card, verify the codes that the working cards without this Lenovo code seem to have in common:

 

WFM WLAN MAC address starts with E8 2A EA

BDM Bluetooth address also starts with E8 2A EA

TA: G99521-003

CMIIT ID: 2013AJ0751

FCC ID: PD97260NG

IC: 1000M-7260NG

 

Same working cards form different topics on this forum (thanks to the daredevils ...):

7260AC as OEM in the Best Buy version ...

For the Yoga 2 Pro it is harder to find common ID's, but more different versions of the card are supported by the BIOS white list.

Some working cards for the Yoga 2 Pro :

Thank you mischa213 for getting details on this. Shame on Lenovo for staying silent.

Denes,

 

We did reply months ago here...

At present, I believe these cards are orderable through service.  I can certainly see the point that if we were to make these available as an option it could be a good thing.

 

Mark

Just to give you an idea how easy it is for customers to find the correct Intel7260AC card,

and order it IF it is available...

Then it is not strange people still order the wrong cards.

Or buy at more than double the price with other outlets: http://notebooks-reparieren.de/20200617

 

 

My definition of   service  is somewhat different...

Hi Mark,

 

I live in Toronto, Canada and bought a Yoga 2 Pro Clementine two month ago directly from lenovo.com.

Model 20266

Serial YB08xxxxxx

Mtm   59428027

Mo    yb04121336

 

It looses the WiFi connection repeatedly. I tried disabling the Bluetooth services, and dedicating a separate WiFi g-band but without success. If the solution is the replacement WiFi card, please let me know, including what is the process to order and install under warranty.

Your suppot is NOT in the US as stated on your website, but rather in the Philippines. I called them, and we spent more time getting my name and address right than even rarsing the issue. It is obviously a known problem, but they had no idea.

 

Please help, it is a nice piece of hardware but useless with this problem.

 

Thanks,

 

Julian

Please post any further (individual Yoga 2 Pro) Wifi problems in the dedicated topic for that:

Re-Yoga-2-Pro-Wifi-Problems

 

Or send Mark a private message / direct mail by clicking on his Name.

 

So this topic will stay a fast overview over generic solutions for all Yoga 13 versions.
