Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 is not working in x220



According to this page my x220 should work with Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 network card. Or I am wrang?


But I got next message "1802: Unauth... bla lba... card (8068/0082/8086/1321)"


I updated BIOS in my system using this:


And I still get this f. message.


What else should I do to upgrade in my own laptop Wi-Fi module?


Thank you for strange service Lenovo.

Hello and welcome,


That driver page you linked shows it covers a range of devices and laptops - but not necessarily at the same time.  Wifi card compatibility is determined by a BIOS whitelist.  The whitelist is included in the Hardware Maintenance Manual   and it does list the 6205.


However, a card has to be both the right model (6205) and have a Lenovo FRU number (60Y3253 in this case).


Does your card have a Lenovo FRU or is it a generic Intel product?
