Is the ThinkPad WiGig Dock compatible with Thinkpad T460 or T470?

2021-07-11, 21:53 PM

Hi,

 

I just ordered a ThinkPad WiGig Dock because it was on sale and it seems like a nice device.
I have a Thinkpad T460 and a T470 at home. Are any of these compatible with it?

If not, can I add some module to make them compatible?

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

WiGig was discontinued some years ago. The T460 supports it if you have the right WLAN card: Intel Tri-Band Wireless-AC 18260.

USB-C: Just cos it fits don't mean it works.

Hello justnatural!


Greetings

 

According to smartfind, the compatible dock listed under the T460 and T470 is ThinkPad Hybrid USB-C with USB-A Dock and you can refer it here; https://accessorysmartfind.lenovo.com/#/search?categoryL1Name=Docking&categoryL2Names&keyword=&pageIndex=1&pageSize=40&query=&subSeriesList=22TP2TT4600&systemId=22TP2TT4600

 

For more information on the dock, you can check the user guide here: https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/options_iso/tp_wigig_dock_ug_en.pdf

However, you can wait for fellow users' recommendations or suggestions especially for those who tried such.

Thanks. Sadly, my T460 did not come with the right WLAN card.
