Re: Lenovo ThinkPad X131e 3G not working

2013-01-24, 20:31 PM

Hi again,


A colleague, Tout1108G, reminded me of the BIOS whitelist on your machine. This whitelist determines which WWAN cards are compatible with your system. The two cards that you could install are the Qualcomm Gobi 3000 and the Ericsson H5321GW. This may help you find a cheaper one somewhere on the web. Also, I found this document that lists all possible parts for your machine and their part numbers. It can found here.


Hope it helps,

Ah ok, I did find a H5221GW though, just uncertain if that would work fine, if not I'll save a bit more money and buy it directly from Lenovo if all else fails.
