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

I wanted to post a message here, since I was able to upgrade my WiFi card to a dual-band one easily and cheaply. I bought the card from Amazon for $10.  I replaced it easily and Lenovo laptop recognized it without any errors.  I had downloaded the Intel drivers beforehand, so I was able to install them immediately after start up.  I have the latest BIOS in my Yoga 2 Pro.  The card I installed:  Intel 7260NGW (Intel AC 7260).    

 

Here is a link to it:

I have attached a picture of it also.

I bought the exact same one with the same FCC ID and all other numbers the same and still got the Unauthorized message. I have the latest bios version 76CN43WW and latest intel driver firmware. Still looking for solution.

you are one of the lucky ones.  I bought the exact same card, upgrade my bios to latest 76CN43WW and have the latest intel driver and still got the "Unauthorized..." message.  what version of bios do you have?

That's interesting -- I bought the "same" card on Amazon (when in the US) but the FCC ID is slightly longer, now has a U at the end.

 

I'm getting the Unauthorized card message as well. Perhaps that's the new acronym? Hilarity aside, this is annoying.

 

What's the latest?

I just installed this card and it worked on my Lenovo Yoga Pro 2.

 

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01AUA7TM6/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

Simple swap.  When I booted up it recognized the 5g network in my house (the original card didn't give me that option).  Speed test through google says 31 Mbps.  

 

Not too shabby.

 

Hope this helps!

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

I have a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro. 

 

I ordered this in Amazon.ca which is the same model as what was on amazon.com:

 

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00GUNZUG0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

But it didn't work for me.  Replaced the old one and when I booted, got the error message "Unauthorized wireless network card is plugged in. Power off and remove it"

 

For now, just disabled wireless from the BIOS setup so laptop can boot up. 

 

My BIOS is 76CN43WW. I've seen some posts that the newer bios has a whitelist that prevents new wireless NICs.

 

Any suggestions?  

 

@g234146 -- may I ask what your BIOS version is ? Just want to confirm if my issue is BIOS-related.  

 

Thanks.

The link I shared is for the card that did work for me. I had tried installing a different one (I don't have the link for the other one anymore) from another vendor and my Yoga Pro2 rejected it. I have no idea why one would work and not the other.
