Good day.

 

Based on the FRU P/N: 04X6076, which is showing in the E555 FRU BOM:

https://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/e555_fru_bom_20150331.pdf

it should work just as long as the actual card you get is labeled with the FRU P/N on the card's sticker similar to the image in your Amazon link.

 

I'd recommend that you confirm your return options before buying anything, in case what you receive doesn't match that.

 

Hope this helps.

Regards.

Good day.

 

Please see the bottom of the last page of the E555 FRU BOM: https://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/e555_fru_bom_20150331.pdf

 

There are five WLAN cards shown that should pass any BIOS boot-time whitelist test. Four of them appear to be AC cards, at least by the minimal descriptions. The FRU P/Ns should help you to find an acceptable card, but be certain to get a card that is explicitly marked with the FRU P/N. A generic card won't work, so I'd recommend that you are clear on any 3rd-party's return policy before purchasing.

 

Note that the card pictured in your Amazon link shows an FRU P/N of 04X6034, which is not in the FRU BOM listing, even though the ad lists a FRU P/N that is in the list. With that, I'd not presume that card would work for you, but can't say with certainty.

 

Hope this helps a bit.

Regards.
