YOGA 2 PRO Wifi replacement - INTEL N7260 to AC 9260

I am struggeling with my Yoga 2 Pro and slow WIFI Connections. If i by a newer WIFI-card (like Intel AC 9260), will it work in my YOGA 2 Pro? Or am i restricted by the BIOS?

 

Kind regards

It will most likely be whitelisted by the BIOS. I haven't seen anyone else on the forums claim that it worked.

I installed AC 9260 on Yoga 13 and 720s 13, both without any issues.

I didn't need to whitelist any of my machine.

Which card was it you installed. Could you link to it? I'm looking for a wifi card upgrade for my Yoga 2 Pro but I'm unsure which new one works with it.

Whats the resolution to this Lenovo? - there is no reason the 9260 is not compatible with the Yoga Pro 2 except your bogus whitelist practice. Wheres the bios update ? or how to work around!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

HELP! NOW. I need Bluetooth 5 and the AC 7260 does not work
