Will a Lenovo FRU 04x6020 BCM94352Z work in the Yoga 700 14isk

My laptop came with the intel 3165ac.  I upgraded to a BCM94530ZAE, which is working.  I want to know if I can change to the BCM94352Z Lenovo FRU 04x6020.  The BCM94350ZAE Lenovo FRU 00jt493 that I have now doesn't support what I'm trying to do but the BCM94352Z does.

 

Thanks!

Hi Nismog,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Checking compatibility using parts lookup by parts number using 04x6020 only shows THINKPAD-11E-20ED-20EE but not for Yoga 700 14isk.

 

Hardware manual whitelist (page 64)do not include BCM94352Z so does BCM94530ZAE.

If it is available as a spare that it may be worth to try it but we cannot guarantee it to work or be recognized by the BIOS so purchasing can be a gamble.

 

Hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

If you search for SW10H24481 from page 64 of that link you provided...the 00JT493 shows up so I'm not sure why you are saying it's incompatible.  I have it installed in my 700 and it works fine in Windows but not another OS.

Just put in my Lenovo branded BCM94352Z (FRU 04X6020) and NO ERROR MESSAGE.  Running latest original BIOS.

 

Working 100% in my Yoga 700 running Mac OS X 10.13.3.

 

So it looks like as long as the WiFi card was produced earlier than the laptop, then a Lenovo branded WiFi card will work.

Hi Nismog,

 

Greetings.

 

Great that you manage to test it out with BCM94352Z as previously suggested.

It is not always expected to work even with same OEM brand but it is always worth a try.

 

Thanks for getting back and confirming functionality of the wlan to your model.

 

Regards
