My X32 gives "1802: Unauthorized network card..."

My computer started life as an X31 (2672-N7U), but the motherboard died on me so it was replaced with an X32 motherboard (2672-M4U). Everything seems to work fine (after disabling the wireless in BIOS) except the mpci wireless card (IBM/Phlilips FRU 91P7301). I don't understand why it would give me this error message since it worked fine in the X31. Both the BIOS and Embedded Controller for the X32 are current. How do I fix this?

The wireless card is probably not supported in the X32 BIOS. You need to purchase a wireless card that is supported by the X32.


The HMM , available here, shows the 93P4170 as a supported wireless card for the X32 motherboard. I wasn't able to find any other one but you should have a look at the HMM.
