Where to buy an Ethernet Adapter for New X1 Carbon?

2014-06-12, 17:20 PM

Hi all,

You know the New X1 Carbon comes with a smaller port than standard RJ45 for wired Internet access. They will give you one that cable in the original package. However, I lost it. And I searched the whole Internet, nobody is selling that kind of adapter(tons of USB to RJ45 instead).

I checked the online shop of Lenovo, they only have USB to RJ45.

Thank you for your help.

No problem, but you might want to do a thorough online search with that FRU number, I haven't been able to find any reliable sources for this part, but one might turn up.

 

Best course of action though would be to contact Lenovo Support directly and see if they have better info than that which is available online now:

Best of luck.

Hello, the FRU# on the ethernet dongle is 04X6435

 

I looked it up here: IBM Maintenance Parts but you might want to haggle a bit on that price... :smileyvery-happy:

 

Cheers!

That's excellent news! That is definitely more reasonable than 248$ :D

 

My pleasure!
