Thinkpad T510: 1802: Unauthorized Network Card

I did some updates to my laptop, and am now getting 1802 Unauthorized Network Card. The wireless card has been in this machine and working, before the BIOS and wireless card updates. The internal card is a Model 622ANHMW

Intel Centrino-Advanced N-6200. The machine will not boot unless this card is removed. I did not purchase this latpop new, but am pretty sure that this is the original card...and like I said was working fine prior to updates. Any ideas to correct this issue?

 

Thanks...

Welcome to the forum!

 

Is there a FRU number on that card?

Cheers,

George

I wonder if the previous owner was running a modified BIOS to get around the wifi white list? A BIOS update pulled in a Lenovo-stock BIOS with the white list reinstated.  Maybe.

Thanks...for the welcome and the assistance. I have looked at the card and I do not see a FRU number on it, I guess I don't understand how it worked...until I did the BIOS and driver update. I did do the updates from the Lenovo site and it took them without an issue...until I rebooted the system. I have used this machine for 7 months without issue before doing the updates....am I going to be shopping for a new wifi card?

Zoltan was right on the money here...

 

Your machine had a modded BIOS which removed the Lenovo's wireless card whitelist BUT was squashed with the official BIOS update...

 

So yes, you will be shopping for a wireless card. Make sure that it's compatible with the *10 generation and sports a FRU number.

 

Good luck.

Cheers,

George
