SL500: 1802 Error

So I installed a generic 802.11n mini pcie wifi card into my sl500 and get this error:


1802 - Unauthorized network card is plugged in


I have yet to find an actual fix. Does anyone have a fix or could point me in the right direction?

Re: SL500: 1802 Error

you have to use Lenovo's official wireless cards. Otherwise it will keep on chucking up this error.
