Betreff: Yoga 2 13 Wireless Card Unauthorized Message

2014-08-11, 9:49 AM

Hi all,

 

Finally ... I've bought the Intel 7260 AC Lenovo rebranded wifi card today (90€ -> **bleep**) ... after delivered and installed I will post the result ... the original Intel card was about 26€

 

I do think the whitelist BIOS mod will take some time (if it will ever be done) and I don't want to wait forever

 

... another bad thing with the Yoga: my Kingston Hyper USB3.0 USB Stick (256GB) isn't working with the USB3.0 port on the Yoga, but working well (but slow) on the 2.0 port. Seems that there is not enough power supplied.

Please let us know if it works. I've tried two different card (one
Intel, one MFactor) and neither one works...

Nice work!
Please let us know if the branded AC works with your BIOS.
You also did have version 1.05 ?

Hi all,

 

just a short status about the branded Intel card I ordered ... I haven't received it until now and after asking they told me I will not get it before the 28th this month ... so I/we have to wait.

I won't make a diff if it is not whitelisted. Just cause lenovo sells it, does not mean it is lenovo branded. You are wasting your time and money.

All,

 

Try the new BIOS just published 8/20 - it should solve the whitelist for the 7260 AC on the Yoga 2 13.

 

Bios version 25 - 96CN25WW

 

Please share your results...

 

Best regards,

 

Mark

O.O

 

May these BIOSes (particularly the Y2P too) also support OKR password lock on the boot menu? I figured if Lenovo is willing to be responsive in fixing BIOS restrictions (in an attempt to fix flaws), then maybe this could win some consideration....

 

Thanks,

Mike

 

PS. Although I am not a Y2 owner, I applaud Lenovo for adding the 7260 AC wifi card to the whitelist.
