WWAN (EM120R-Gl) doesn't work on my X1G9

2021-07-18, 18:32 PM

I have purchased an EM120R-Gl WWAN card.

It should be compatible with the X1G9
But when I install it I get the 1802 error :(
I use the latest BIOS 1.42
I know Lenovo is already selling this laptop with this WWAN card in some countries.
Does anybody have any idea?

There's no Lenovo FRU part number on that card, so it's not a Lenovo card, and won't work. In addition, it's clearly labeled as an Engineering Sample!

 

What you want, from the support page, is Lenovo FRU 5W10V25821 or 5W10V25816. Here's what the first looks like:

 

 

Hope this helps!

What's the Lenovo part number on the WWAN card? The symptoms you are seeing happen with a non-Lenovo WWAN card. You must use a compatible Lenovo part.

The EM120R-GL should be compatible as long as I know. How do I find the part number on the WWAN card?
