Re: Yoga 2 Pro WiFi Replacement Cards????

2014-11-04, 19:28 PM

Have in Yoga 2 Pro and wanted to install this card:

http://www.amazon.de/802-11ac-Intel-Netzwerkkarte-Wireless-AC-Bluetooth/dp/B00IAK8WFW/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1415128856&sr=8-4&keywords=7260+ac

 

But I get the error message:

unauthorized wireless network card is plugged in. power off and remove it

 

it is the latest BIOS version installed (96CN25WW (V1.11)

 

New Card:

Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 7260

Model: 7260NGW

FCC ID: PD97260NG

 

Old/Stock Card:

Intel Wireless N 7260

Model: 7260 NGW BN

FCC ID: PD97260NGU

 

Is the New AC the wrong card?
Is it the new bios?

What I have for options?

 

Does this also work in Yoga 2 who already tested?

EDIT:

I've probably only the Yoga 2 and not the Pro and I can not tell the difference?

Why does yoga 2 per AC, and not doing yoga 2

I installed an Intel 7260 NGW card and when I tried to boot the Yoga 2 pro, it told me I had to remove the unauthorized network card installed and try to reboot. I reinstalled the original card, and it worked at before. How do I get the 5G card I purchased to work?

You're not.

 

Sell it and buy a version that is supported by the Yoga 2 Pro BIOS.

 

See this topic for several posts on the (non)working cards.

Re: Yoga 2 Pro WiFi Replacement Cards????

2015-01-06, 9:45 AM

For the benefit of anyone in the UK still having the unauthorised problem, I initially purchased this one from Amazon UK:

 

http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00DMNSVQM/ref=pe_385721_37986871_TE_item (£21.99)

 

but it didn't look like the picture. It wouldn't work, as whatever I received wasn't on the whitelist.

 

So after a lot of searching around, I binned the first one, and got this one:

 

http://www.flexxmemory.co.uk/wireless/intel-dual-band-wireless-ac-7260-pci-express-m-2-802-11ac-dual-band-2x2-wi-fi-bluetooth-4-0-m-2-ngff-7260ngw-7260ngwgr/ (£24.99).

 

this went in easily, and booted up clean first time.  And I never needed to mess with drivers; network came up dual-band, and bluetooth worked immediately. Great result!

 

Good luck all!

Would anyone know where to obtain the 7260 AC M.2 card fit for the Yoga 2 Pro, in Europe?

 

Flexxmemory as linked above is sadly out of stock and neither sellers on eBay or Amazon have the specific model with the same SPS code :-(

 

Given import duty and VAT to Denmark, I am reluctant to order from China or US.

I posted this in another thread and meant to post it in this one:

In addition to the cards without a FCC ID; Dell pulled cards will not work as well. I bought a Dell pulled card, P/N 0KTTYN, which has a FCC ID and when I installed it I got the dreaded authorization error. Needless to say I didn't screw around later and bought from M-Factor like I should have from the start.

 BTW, the one from M-Factor is working like a charm though the Bluetooth is giving me fits with a BT mouse.
