X270 and Huawei MU736 WWAN

Hi

 

Can this combo be done? Has anyone tried? Or are there any BiOS restrictions that will prevent me from using whatever I want? And if so, is there anyway around that?

It will not work as BIOS is whitelisted & only Lenovo OEM WWAN cards will work with the system. You can refer to Lenovo Service parts list for compatible parts
  

I hope the above information helped you. 

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!


Regards,
Prabhansh

Hi

x270 doesn't support Huawei' wwan cards, MU736 including. Laptop' BIOS white list will not pass unapproved wwan cards.

BTW, what are the benefits of this card you've found?



x220 • Gobi 2000 3g | hdd, msata ssd, wwan, wifi, gps -- unique hand-made config
ThinkPad 25 Special Anniversary Edition. #retro. Signed by D.Hill
T470p | X1 Carbon Gen3 | Miix 2 10" | Yoga Tablet 2-1050F (Android) + BT Keyboard
ThinkPad Stack • 2.4/5 Wireless Router, HDD 1 TB, BT Speaker, Power Bank, Mobile Projector

Do it well, worse becomes itself

It's quite cheap to buy used. Don't really care about if it's 3G or 4G, just wanted WWAN as a backup solution if everything else fails and I have to have internet access for simple things like browsing or SSH. It kind of sucks that they whitelist hardware like this, limiting my options.
