Per your other posts, you seem to want to bypass the Bios whitelist of Lenovo offered wifi items and want users to slip their BIOS whitelist to bypass said items and report to you their findings. Is this your question?
Your other post discussed a x201.
What is status of x250? can anyone confirm that i could use wifi cards in x250 or not, i currently hunt for new laptop that is future proof and i really own laptop not company. This far i used x201 with bios cleaned correctly of locks but now it is really time to get new.
x201 with bios cleaned correctly of locks <<You state.

Somewhere lenovo told that x250 do not have whitelist for wifi and if someone can test this in reality thats is what need. There is really good offer for x250 until end of this year but i do not want to get until i know about future of wifi.

Is there a particular model or part number for the Wi-Fi card you want to know about? I don't think I've seen any M.2 Wi-Fi cards from other manufacturers besides the Intel 7265 that Lenovo uses in the X250 and other models.
It seems very odd to me that the seller of the X250 you're interested in doesn't include the Wi-Fi card. I was not aware they could be ordered without one as I thought it was a standard feature in all models. You should ask the seller of the X250 you wish to buy to include the Wi-Fi card so you don't have to buy one separately.

Okay, let's see... the X250 uses an M.2 2230 form-factor WLAN card. Models listed in the FRU BOM are:
00JT464 - Intel 7265NGW (802.11ac + Bluetooth 4.0)
00JT465 - Intel 7265 (802.11n dual band + Bluetooth 4.0)
00JT466 - Intel 7265 (802.11n 2.4Ghz only + Bluetooth 4.0)
00JT467 - Intel 7265 (802.11ac + Bluetooth 4.0)
00JT468 - Intel 7265 (802.11n + Bluetooth 4.0)
04W3804 - Realtek (RTL8192EE+RTL8761 Bluetooth 4.0)
04W3805 - Realtek (RTL8192EE 2.4Ghz only + RTL8761 Bluetooth 4.0)
I have put what I believe are the capabilities of each card in parenthesis because I'm not sure of their exact values.
In my ThinkPad X250 (M/T: 20CM-002WUS) I replaced the Intel 7265 card with the following:
Intel 8260NGW (802.11ac + Bluetooth 4.0)
which is *not* a Lenovo-branded card (no FRU), just a regular Intel OEM card.
Both 802.11ac wireless and Bluetooth seem to work okay.
