2014-08-27, 17:39 PM

@Mark_Lenovo, was the whitelisting done right?

 

A user claims they still cannot use their wifi card.

Are there any other KNOWN TESTED WORKING cards except the 7260 single band and the single band realtek ?

The latest versions of the Yoga 2 13 are shipped with BIOS version 1.09 and have the Intel 7260AC Wifi card installed.
So sone other cards do work with the new BIOS, but we would love to know their specific FCC IDs ....

Hi

@emmerx: did you buy the 7260ac card you linked 2 pages back from ebay.nl? And does it work?

 

I found a 7260AC card on amazon :

http://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-Thinkpad-7260ngw-Wireless-04w3806/dp/B00JZHHPH0/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1409221298&sr=8-6&keywords=lenovo+7260ac

It has the FCC id=PD97260NGU according to the picture. So does that mean there is a good chance it will work in our Y2 13? It seems to be a Lenovo FRU 04W3806 official Lenovo item.

 

You said something about the FCC PD97260NG and PD97260NGU on the previous page. Should we buy one with U or without U on the end.

 

I read the table from indest on page 10. thanks for that info.

 

I have serious issues with my rtl8723be card. I can't browse to eg www.google.com after the Y2 13 has fallen asleep and woken up again. So I need to reboot it. Strange thing is that many urls work fine. Just 'large' sites like google (and this forum) do not work after the Y2 was woken after being asleep.

If I go through a proxy (squid on my router PC) it works a bit better. If I connect my USB3-Gbit adapter I have no problem at all. If I connect via wifi and remote desktop to my desktop PC I have no problem either.

 

I don't understand why Lenovo does not sell a 7260AC card that is guaranteed compatible with their/our Y2 13 laptops. I don't really care what it costs.

 

If someone can confirm that the NGU is better than the NG version of the 7260AC card  will order the one from amazon ($65).

I did buy it, still waiting for delivery.

Then we might know what difference the U can make ?

 

The card on Amazon has the original Lenovo part nr 20200385, so it should work.

Happely for me it also has a U after PD97260NG, so I'm thrilled with my € 20,- eBay 

 

 

Please other users post your FCC ID and Windows ID to help us find out what works and what not !

 

 

When arrived, I will first test the PD97260NGU with my current BIOS version 1.05 (exchanging it in sleep mode to be able to get the Windows ID).

Then I will restart the laptop to find out if it is in the BIOS white list ...

IF Not

Flash the BIOS to v1.11 and restart the laptop.

 

And maybe I have to wait some more till we overcome the Lenovo white list in whatever way ....

Thanks for the feedback

 

I have already upgraded to 1.11 but that does not resolve my problems.

 

When I order and receive the 7260ac card I will let you know the result.

Still unsure whether to buy the 20$ one from germany or the 65$ one from the US.

Amazon one is the sure bet,
eBay a big gamble.

Although the eBay picture shows the ID ending with a U, the seller explicitly states:
NOT working with IBM/Lenovo and HP ...

As both the picture and the textual description show NGU

I think it is worth the gamble and a cheap win (for alle Yoga 2 13 owners)  if succesfull.

 

Watch out as this seller also has the non-U cards in his shop.

The FCC shows a lot of different Application ID's for the FD97260NGU version of the Intel AC 7260.

So I might well be there was a seperate batch made for Lenovo to increase after sales profit ...

 

Most applications apply to Dell products, and as I do not have broadband internet this week I will not be able to retrieve the Yoga 2 13 specific application, if not still confidential..

 

Please anybody else try to find the specific application and ID for the Yoga 2 13 and Y2P ?

You can exclude all applications that have only 5 GHz certifications.
