Intel Ultimate N 633ANHMW wifi adapter

Is the Intel Ultimate N 633ANHMW IEEE 802.11n  Wi-Fi Adapter capable with the x230? I have one in my x230 and it works fine but I tried installing another one on my wife's x230 and it said that it was unauthorized and did a system halt.

 

I appreciate your help.

It seems the 2nd wifi adapter isn't Lenovo branded, so the laptop' BIOS doesn't accept it.

Proper wifi adapter Intel 6300 should have Lenovo service p/n (FRU) 04X6003, 60Y3233, 60Y3193, any.

I will look for one with 60Y3233 .

 

I appreciate your help  and will let you know if I run into any more issues. 

 

So just to clarify,  it will work as those you listed are whitelisted in bios?

Yes, all adapters with FRU # code above have the same PCI IDs whitelisted in the BIOS and will workl in x230:
PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_4238&SUBSYS_11118086

If you'll provide the symbols at the end of the string with error 1802 you faced (look like 8086/4238/....), I'll tell what's that unproper adapter exactly.
