WiGig compatibility (x270)

2018-09-25, 19:06 PM

I planned to purchase Lenovo WiGig dock for my x270 but postponed the decision after reading commentaries about compatibility issues with some of Thinkpad models.

As I understand, the only WiGig compatible WiFi module is Intel 18260 (Triple band?).

My x270 (product no. 20K5S08T08) has Intel Dual Band AC-8260.

I assume that WiGig will not work with my Thinkpad.
Am I right?

Welcome to the Community

WiGiG adapter isn't approved for x270. But it'll work itself (!) only, w/out signal as this adapter needs additional parts to be installed - antenna cable and antenna module

There isn't free space to fit the antenna module in the LCD cover.

Thanks.
So my assumption is right and dual band Wi Fi is not compatible with WiGig.
Otherwise, someone please correct me.

P.S. Compatibility matrix (2018) says for x270 "WiGig model only".
