p320 tiny wireless upgrade

2021-01-13, 19:05 PM

I have a P320 tiny without the internal wireless/bluetooth, which I would like to upgrade.  I know the adapter is Intel 8265 and external antenna is 00xj094.  Can someone tell me what other part numbers I would need? Shield, riser, cable, bracket etc.  I don't think I would need the internal antenna.

Solved! See the solution

Hi bill994!


Welcome to Lenovo Forums Community.

 

If you will be using the listed compatible parts on the support page: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/workstations/thinkstation-p-series-workstations/thinkstation-p320-tiny/30c2/parts/display/compatible you won't be needing other parts for the upgrade. The parts you've mentioned should be there as well.

 

Hope that helps.

Unfortunately we don't have any option kits for P320 Tiny to support upgrades to add wifi/BT support.  Those tend to be easier because they contain all the necessary parts under one order/part number.

 

That means that FRUs are going to be the next best path.  Here's the list of everything you should need:

 

Intel 8265 card (non-Vpro) - FRU 01AX704

Intel 8265 card (Vpro) - FRU 01AX702

**Note - choose only one of the wifi adapters listed above

 

LDS Front Antenna - FRU 00XJ093

Stick PIFA Antenna (rear) - FRU 00XJ094

190mm bendable SMA cable - FRU 00XJ095

Tiny5 bendable SMA cable - FRU 00XJ139

 

There are also two parts listed that I don't have FRUs for.  It's possible that these could come with one of the FRU numbers listed above, but I don't have visibility that far into the parts structure.

- Screw used for retention (this is a M2x3 if you need to source one on your own)

- Wifi card cover (I think this is a plastic shield to protect the internal antenna connections, and is probably not 100% required to get the card to function)

 

 

Fair warning, be careful when attempting to attach the antenna cables to the adapter.  Those connections are very small, delicate, and easily damaged.  This can be a challenging upgrade if you've never dealt with those components before.

Thanks for the reply! I also see FRU 01EF685 Wifi BKY asy. Do you know what this is for? Also, isn't a new back panel adapter/connector required to mount the stick antenna? Is there a maintenance manual as exists for the P320 sff?

Thanks, but I have that manual. There is a separate much more detailed maintenance manual for the P320 sff and I was hoping to find one for the P320 tiny.

Do you know where the bracket, number 11 in the user manual goes or what is is for?
