I think it is hopeless to wait on a modded BIOS. Because it is protected.

 

Maybe it is easier to patch/rewrite the PCI-ID of the wireless card, to one which is listed in the whitelist.

 

I have read something about it, which works on other intel cards.

 

Any ideas or infos where to get more details?

Perhaps not "hopeless" but one has to stop and think if it's a good idea to risk the possible bricking of your laptop to an anonymous hacker.  No one has replied to my request, but I've upgraded to the ThinkPad Yoga - so it's a moot point for me anyway.  I'd assume that, eventually, Lenovo will release a new BIOS for the Y213 - so until then, the hot-plug solution is all there is.

Hi Guys, I just bought this laptop and I am running into problems with the crappy wireless card.  I have purchased the AC card from Amazon (the one with the FCC ID). I am getting an unauthorized notification.  

 

Has there been any progress getting this new card working on our Y2 13's 

 

Thanks guys.

 

i love this laptop, its a **bleep** shame that they didn't spend another few bucks to make it amazing.  

 

Tom

For wireless AC, you have two choices:

- Buy the Lenovo-branded Intel Wireless AC adapter (Lenovo P/N 04X6010, around $90)

- Use a USB wireless AC adapter (I picked up a cheap/refurb $20 Linksys AE6000 adapter that does the job)

I'd recommend the former - return the Intel adapter to Amazon and buy the Lenovo part. You're probably only spending an extra $60 to make your laptop "amazing".

About this A/C card. I don't seem to have a problem holding a connection with my router, so would an A/C wifi card speed up my webpage loads? Or my download top speeds?

Both will be faster. I have a 100MB/s broadband connection but my average download speed was about 50MB/s. After upgrading to a Wireless AC router & adapter - I'm now getting the full 100MB/s that I'm paying for.

That said, if you're on a 50MB/s (or slower) Internet plan, wireless AC gear may make your Internet connection more stable; but it won't make your Internet faster.
