Re: Yoga 2 13 Wireless Card Unauthorized Message

I've tried your scenario even with zero gravity but I suppose we have to wait for the next full moon or a better constellation of the stars? 

 

Please show us any real proof of your mods.

We would be delighted.

 


We have learned the Y2 11 Seagate cable is SATA, slightly longer than the 2 13 cable and should work with our Y2 13.

But as I'm not in need of any extra storage with my 256 GB SSD, I'll wait for the new generation of M.2 SSD's with 4 PCI lanes (e.g. Samsung 941) and much higher performance. Up to 1000 MB/s, read & write.

Re: Yoga 2 13 Wireless Card Unauthorized Message

Sorry to hijack the thread,,, But can anyone tell me what the PCI ID of the factory-installed WiFi card is?

 

The 7260 AC card that is in my Y2P is listed in the BIOS whitelist as 86 80 B1 08 86 80 70 C0 (little endian) and PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_08B1&SUBSYS_C0708086 in Windows.  The BIOS additionally lists:

86 80 B2 08 86 80 62 C2

86 80 B2 08 86 80 70 C2

 

So it should support all 3 7260 cards (AC, DB N anf SG N).

 

I have used Phoenix Tool to disassemble the BIOS.  I haven't modified it or anything, but you can try this method to find out exaclty what is supported in the BIOS.  All three IDs are listed next to each other, so if you can locate the original card's ID you should be able to see the others if any---

Re: Yoga 2 13 Wireless Card Unauthorized Message

I have the Realtek RTL 8723BE installed in my Y2 13 with i3 4010.

Windows:  

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_9C16&SUBSYS_397817AA&REV_E4\3&11583659&0&E0
 

So it should appear as  xx xx xx xx AA 17 78 39 in our BIOS.

 

 

PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_B723&SUBSYS_B73617AA&REV_00
 

So it should appear as  xx xx xx xx AA 17 36 B7  in our BIOS.

Re: Yoga 2 13 Wireless Card Unauthorized Message

That does not seem correct... 8086 is intel's pci id and as you said you have a Realtek card.  I downloaded the driver from lenovo and had a look in the inf:  there are multiple entries, but in general it should be something like  PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8723.

 

PS:  The ID you posted is of the PCIe control device, not the WiFi card

Re: Yoga 2 13 Wireless Card Unauthorized Message

I am curious about the intense interest in the AC 7260 wifi card. As far as I can tell, the only advantage in an AC card is speed in file transfer within a local network.  Or, if you need dual band for 5 GHz devices on your local network. Otherwise, the single band N 7260 gives throughput to/from the Internet that is more than adequate for most ISPs.

 

My Yoga 2 13 has the single band N 7260 card and I get the same up and down throughput from the Internet as my wired desktop. And I get that speed 15 feet from my AP or 40 feet away through four walls. My ISP promises 25 Mbps down and 5 Mbps up. I get 28+ Mbps down and 5.8+ Mbps up.

 

Regards, Jim

Re: Yoga 2 13 Wireless Card Unauthorized Message

You're right, I copied the wrong string from Evernote.Smiley Embarassed

 

The Hardware ID for the (disappointing performing) Realtek WLAN&Bt card is 

PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_B723&SUBSYS_B73617AA&REV_00
(with a B instead of the 8 ???)
 
Now let 's hope users of newer 7260AC cards copy their ID's; both from the Lenovo branded version and the OEM Intel one.
 
 
@ Jim
My laptop is also used with file storage on my local server. In photo and video editing speed is everything .
So now I'm using a wired 1Gbps network connection to transfer files, also for system backups.
And I would like to solve the problems I have when connecting to wireless networks while not at home.

Yeah, I always have trouble connecting to local wifi away from home on every laptop I have used.  I think most of the problems are due to the local router/AP when I get one or two bars signal strength. I haven't had my Yoga 2 13 anywhere but home. 

 

Good luck, Jim

Are you sure every Yoga 2 13 will support the Intel 7260 AC version?

It might well be BIOS version related ...

 

My Yoga 2 13 BIOS version is 96CN19WW (V1.05) and seems to support 4 different Wifi N cards:

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

The Yoga 2 Pro has only 1 supported WLAN card in the HMM

20200409  WLAN/ BT, Intel 7260BN 2x2BN+BT PCIE NGFF

 

 


Just reviving this post. However, please note that the user says the the Y2P only supports 7260 N and not AC
