I have mine now from Lenovo but haven't fitted yet. Did you need to change any of the drivers, settings?

Re. this white list discussion, we are told this is to comply with FCC requirements? Fine for US laptops, but Lenovo is not a US company and I am not a US citizen, I do not live jn the US and my Yoga 2 13 did not come from the US.

So, what on earth has the FCC got to do with it? Why can't I install a non-US bios? Most of us are not from the US so why would it be a good idea to enforce US regs on the whole world? This does not add up.

Non US citizens can go ahead and purchase Lenovo original parts from Medion Germany here at: https://www.medion.com/lenovoserviceshop/search?msn=35020612. Just send request, the Medion staff will notify you and make item purchasable for 48 hours. So you have enough time to make payment. 

 

Just got mine wifi card from shipper and replace original N with Intel 7260 AC. The new card works perfect. 

 

Note that Lenovo part number 20200617 is missing from the card sticker but appear on delivery list from Medion toghether with their internal part number.

Seriously considering doing this, BUT I do not have an AC router. My router is N900 (so 450meg connection over N only). What will this card get me? If when connecting at N it still does only one spatial stream (so 150meg or 72meg when on one channel) then I may as well stick with the Realtek card. If it does N 450meg then great. If it does N 300meg then OK. What should I expect at N speeds?

 

Also, exactly what size/type of screwdriver do I ask for when I walk into Maplins? I can't take the laptop easily, so I need to know what exactly to ask for. I'm guessing 'very small' is not going to cut it at the counter.

 

And finally, I do not own any mobile phone tools, so what would be best to use to pry off the case that I might find at home? A credit card perhaps? This is a new laptop and very expensive (for me) so I cannot afford to 'raise the rooster' on this one.

AC will bring you a faster and more stable chipset and 5GHz support.

As the regular 2,4GHz band is filled with other wifi users and your own Bluetooth, this improves stability of your connection.

For faster speeds you could opt for a AC router, but real 450 Mbps is already a big improvement over unstable 300 Mbps.

 

 

You would ask for Torx T5

 

 

Credit card works fine.

Thanks for the advice re. tools. Very useful. I am, however, still confused about the speeds available. I think perhaps I was not clear enough with my question, I shall rephrase:

I have a N class 5/2.4Ghz dual band router which will do a max speed of 450meg, that being N speed over 3 spatial streams with a double width channel. It will not do AC at all. To replace it would be a pain as I cannot simply swap it out due to cable company rules that I can only use their kit. I could string another router off it but that would be a pain given the space available.

I understand that the Intel AC card will do high speeds on AC mode but that is no good to me. I need to know if it will connect to a purely N class router at either:

A) N 450meg (3x3)
B) N 300meg (2x2)
C) N 150meg (1x1)

I understand the differences between 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz but the frequency band is not relevant to this question.

If anyone can reveal the maximum N class speed this Intel card can use I would be very grateful.

Thanks,
Andy.

Hi Everybody,


I will order the 20200617/35020612, but have an question for happy owners of this card :

 

Actually, on Windows 8.1 with the realtek chipset, the bluetooth stack is poor : I can only manage bluetooth through Windows stack, so for example, I use an Parrot Zik headeset, and I'm unable to use the mic, and I must pair the device everytime, because I don't use autoconnect, and Windows don't let my manually connect to the headset ...

 

So, my question is : the 20200617/35020612 card is working with some Intel Software ? (Proset ?) Is there "advanced" options for Bluetooth ?

 

Bonus : I will be happy to see screenshots or an video of bluetooth options :)


Thank you !

 

PS : Sorry if I made some language error, I'm french :)

@Alexds

 

It's your lucky day :

  • I'm french too,
  • I own a Yoga 2 13,
  • I own a Parrot zik 2
  • and I just swapped the poor Atheros Wifi/BT with a Intel 20200617/35020612 AC WiFi/BT board.

 

So I will give atrial this week and let you know of any parrot BT issue.
