Re: Yoga 2 13 Wireless Card Unauthorized Message

2015-01-15, 0:49 AM

Good news and bad news.....

 

Good news: I got 2 cards in and installed one to my Yoga 2 13 and it is working great!

 

Bad news: I got 3 of the wrong card from the warehouse so I only have 1 to sell at the moment.  I should be getting the correct cards by next week and will post another link, but here is the auction for the one I have in hand now: 

 

EDIT: SOLD, again I will update again when I get more (hopefully) from the warehouse

Many thanks
I live in London so if I am able to buy one of the cards when you get them in you'll have to let me know the postage costs.
Cheers
Ian

Update:  I should be getting 3 more cards tomorrow and will list them on Ebay at that time.  Just wanted to update those of you that still would like to purchase the card from the US.  Thanks.

I do want one problem is the timeframe you publish it... do you have an
idea of time? Or if you prefer I can even send you the money upfront.

Heads up, Ebay seller ecomhq_computerparts has one 20200617 card listed for $50 right now. I don't know the seller, it just popped up in my alerts.

 

EDIT: Looks like it sold.

Nice...that is a good price!  I have to sell my batch for slightly more due to what I paid for shipping, ebay fees, etc.  They should be up tonight at some point, I'll post a link.

Now that hoogs has sold his last two cards, I'll mention that US-based Ebay seller ecomhq_computerparts has kept posting 20200617 cards over the past week or two. He sells "new" ones for USD $50 and "refurbished" for $40, shipped free within the US. I messaged him to ask the difference and he told me that the refurbished item was purchased as Refurbished directly from Lenovo, whereas the new one was simply removed from a brand new Lenovo laptop. He said both are fully tested and working 100%.

 

I purchased of one of his refurbished cards and it seems to be working perfectly so far. 

 

Here's the most interesting thing about the upgraded card though. Using a freeware utility called WiFiInfoView from Nirsoft.com, I scanned for Wi-Fi signals at my location using the factory-installed 7260 BN card, and again 10 minutes later with the newly installed 7260 AC card. With the original card, the scan detected 6 networks, N and G routers all in the 2.4GHZ frequency band.  But then with the new card installed, the scan detected 23 networks plus a Chromecast device, 22 of which were in the 2.4GHz band and the other 2 in the 5GHz band. That means the new card detected more than 3 times as many networks in the 2.4GHz band than the original card(!), plus it picked up 5GHz signals that the other one didn't.  I'm not sure how this will ultimately translate into real-world performance until I use it for a while, but based on that result it looks like the AC card is a lot more sensitive than the BN version that came with the machine.
