Re: Yoga 2 13 Wireless Card Unauthorized Message

2016-02-12, 2:29 AM

I just failed to boot my Yoga 2 with the same wireless intel 7260hmw card that others here have tried, despite it working fine in other laptops and with a hot swap in this laptop.  Updating the bios did not help.  I was dismayed to come here to find a two year old unresolved issue.  

 

I am annoyed that Lenovo would try to force me to use their hardware to upgrade, and angry that they didn't at least tell me so so that I wouldn't have wasted my time and money. 

 

I don't know what to say.  I know that feedback in this forum almost certainly feeds into no process that can motivate change with the company.  I would direct my feedback to a more useful channel if I believed that any existed, or that there would even be interest.  

 

I suppose there are things I could do to work around the issue, but why deal with that when I don't have to.  This will be the last laptop I buy from this company.

Re: Yoga 2 13 Wireless Card Unauthorized Message

Hello!

 

Now I speak you my success strory. Thanks to pzivtins, I also bought WIFI card  BCM94352Z LENOVO FRU 04X6020 and confirm that it startep up without problem in my Yoga 2 13 (noPro) BIOS version 1.11.

When I bought BCM94352Z my BIOS version was 1.17. But I downloaded firmware version 1.11 from official site lenovo and downgraded BIOS to version 1.11. It becomes possible to do when I set flag "Enable downgrade or last version" (I don't remember exactly) in BIOS.

Now, I have two band (2,4G and 5G) fast WIFI. No hacking BIOS, no SPI programming - just bought rigth card and installed in Yoga.

 

I take my hat off to pzivtins.

 

Good luck!

 

P.S.

I'm sorry for the mistakes, English is my second language.

just wanna confirm too, the Broadcom BCM94352Z 04X6020 card works perfectly with 1.17 bios ,didn't need to downgrade ,was only $15 listed on ebay as yoga 3 pro wifi card. 2.4 and 5 ghz both acceptable ,low signal but working stable which is a big thing to say after about a year strugle.. 
I know outdated model now ,but still real shame how Lenovo treats their customers. tried all original cards atheros ,realtek and even the intel 7260-N with 2 different router ,all possbile drivers. all completely useless with less signal and worse interference sensitivity than a $20 chinese tablet. $1000 laptop and had to use with usb dongle for a year ,joke.
yoga 2 13 should've been recalled or at least the whitelist removed and issued a big apology for the antenna design

Re: Yoga 2 13 Wireless Card Unauthorized Message

Thank you so much to the contributors to this thread. My Lenovo Yoga 2 13 was dropping the WiFi conection with increasing frequency, over once an hour. So using the info in recent threads I bought this:

 

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0196D31YI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

It came from China and took about 10 days to arrive (I am in the UK). I put it in and all I had to do after booting up was to reenter my Routers WiFi password and it has worked flawlessly now for a week. Thank you so much to everyone.

 

This is a photo of the card I bought:

I bought this card, based on the above comment.  Just tried, and it gives the unauthorised message.  Can't find where to download old BIOS versions from - can anyone advise? I'm currently on 1.17.

This card was added from 1.15 or 1.17 

before 1.15 only these cards are supported 

20200409  WIFI 2x2 BGN+BT4.0, Intel 7260BN 2x2BN+BT PCIE NGFF
20200557  WIFI 1x1 BGN+BT4.0, Cbt BCM43142 1x1BN+BT4.0 PCIE M.2
20200558  WIFI 1x1 BGN+BT4.0, Ltn HFA335 1x1BN+BT4.0 PCIE M.2
20200570  WIFI 1x1 BGN+BT4.0, Cbt RTL8723BE 1x1BN+BT4.0 PCIE M.2

 

after two AC added:

 

Intel 7260 AC FRU PN 20200617
Broadcom  BCM94352Z  Lenovo P/N 20-200480 FRU: 04X6020 or Yoga 3 Pro original card

 

should work with 1.17 ,not sure why it's not working. might be only Broadcom card designed or removed from yoga 3 pro works. 7260 AC is another possibility but seems quite hard to get
