IdeaPad Y530 - compatible internal non-Intel WiFi card?

Question: IdeaPad Y530 - compatible internal non-Intel WiFi card?

Hello, My IdeaPad Y530 has mini PCI-E Intel 5100 card. I would like to use another card, with Broadcom chip (Intel is very problematic with Linux or other OS). I know that IdeaPad has in BIOS whitelist of accepted WLAN cards. - Does anybody know what non-Intel card will 100% work with IdeaPad Y530? I need a/b/g/n compatible card.- Or does any BCM94321MC card will 100% work with IdeaPad Y530? Thanks for any help!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi Guys,

I'm currently trying to work out a problem regarding my WiFi card on my L670-14M.

The old Wifi card died on us, so I decided to buy a Intel 7620 card to replace it. This installed fine, and is recognized by the device manager, and I can now find the wifi card in the adapter settings menu.

Unfortunately, I'm unable to go any further. The wireless logo in the corner appears, but with a red "X" through it.

I've tried:
Disabling and enabling the cardUsing the FN+F8 key combinationUpdating the BIOSRunning the troubleshooter (It tells me to switch on the WiFi capabilities via a switch on the computer or the FN keys. I have no switch and the FN key combination doesn't work.I've also attempted to clear the TCP/IP stack to no avail.

All I can guess now is that the card is either incompatible with this laptop, or maybe there's something in the registry that could be changed/removed to help? I've tried several different cards too (as this is a work laptop and we've bought the cards in bulk) and it's not due to a faulty card.

Thanks,

YoYoMachete

We have fairly new HP DV7T laptops, with the internal Intel Wifi Link 5100 AGN card..

We have been through 3 access points at this point, i just now confirmed that i dont think our issue is access point related, at least not the type etc...

Frequently these laptops will suddenly not find ANY networks (wireless ones) to connect to..

Other laptops (dell, asus, iphones) still work fine during these periods.

I've tried playing with configuration settings on the nic itself with no luck.

Currently we have a Dlink Dap-2553 access point.. set to the 2.4ghz mode (since we still have devices that need 2.4ghz)..

I'm not sure what to do to prevent this from happening, short of using express cards, which we dont want to do..

Anyone else ran into this?

Thanks

Hello, I tried to determine whether it is possible to enable that option, but seems there is not such possibility in BIOS. Is it planned to add option to enable hardware virtualization support in BIOS for IdeaPad Y530 (and perhaps all the IdeaPads which support VT) ?

I have a new Ideapad Y530 with an Intel Wireless 5100 wifi network card. It works fine when I'm connected to AC power but when I'm on battery it loses the wireless connection after about half an hour of usage. When I check the network card it shows that it is disabled. I try to enable it but it stays disabled, I can't get it working unless I restart the computer. What I've done so far which has not fixed he problem: 1. I checked the power management settings in the device manager for the network card and have unchecked the box that says "allow computer to turn off device to save power".2. I already have uninstalled Readycomm since I had problems with it previously3. I've also set Roaming Aggressiveness to 1. Can someone direct me on how to keep the wireless network card from getting disabled when I'm on battery? Furthermore, once I lose the wireless connection due to network card getting disabled, the Windows Vista network settings are really slow to come up for me to check my network connection and settings, never had this problem with XP. System almost seems to hang for several minutes before I can get into Network and Sharing Center. Thank you.

Answer:Ideapad Y530 wireless wifi gets disabled while on battery

I think I figured this out. I disabled then uninstalled the Lenovo power management which at first seem to fix the problem but didn't. I knew it had something to do with power management so I checked my settings and it was set to Power Saver. When I changed it to Balanced the wireless network card stayed enabled and I did not lose my network connection. I checked the advanced power options for the wireless adapter in both Balanced and Power Saver modes and found that Power Saver had it set for Maximum Power Savings while Balanced had it set for Maximum Performance. The Maximum Power Saving setting is what kept disabling the wireless network card after several minutes, I changed it to the next setting Low Power Saving and my wireless remains enabled and I do not lose my network connection. So for anyone else having problems with losing their wireless connection, try checking your power management settings.

I thought I would post this for other uses who may find this help ful.I bought Ideapad y530 last week and had WIFI connection problem.I could not able to connect to my wireless modem (Dlink DI-624 Rev C) and the moment it connects to the wireless modem it would flash all lights on the modem and give up. Searching the forums I found it is 64 bit incompatibility problem of DI-624. But while talking to Lenovo support, he asked me to UNINSTALL Lenovo ReadyComm 4.0 software from the laptop and restart the system and the wireless connection was working like a gem. It looks like Lenovo knows that Readycomm s/w is creating problem on Ideapad laptops (may be only on 64bit OS?) and I would appreciate if they have done something for that already, like putting up a patch on their support site.

I just bought an ideapad y530.  I have a CAnon S45 powershot camera, that normally uploads photos via a cable. I have since learned that windows vista does not support the driver for the upload process, but the canon website suggested a cardreader might upload without the cable.  I have a card slot on this computer but it is too small to accept the card from my camera. the card is a Lexar media card 64MB, it has a 4x in the upper corner and is about 4.2 cm wide on the face that interacts w/ computer. My card reader slot says: MMC MS MSpro SD SDpro xD.  I am guessing that once again technology has left me in the dust with an obsolete (at least for vista and Lenovo) camera.  Is there any way I could adapt the computer so I could still use my camera? Hope someone can help.  thanks Judy

Answer:Can I replace stock wifi card with an Intel 6235 Wifi/Bluetooth PCI-e card in my N580?

Hello and welcome,
 
Whatever card you use, it MUST have a Lenovo FRU number.  Cards that will pass the BIOS whitelist have been modified to provide a specific subsystem ID to BIOS.  Reputable sellers will list the Lenovo FRU if their card is compatible.
 
For example, a generic Intel 6150NX will not pass the whitelist, but a 6150NX with a 20002543 FRU number will pass.
 
Here's the list from the N580 Hardware Maintenance Manual:

I have a W500 (i.e. product type 4058), with an Intel 5100 Wifi Link 5100 AGN adapter, running Vista 64 SP2 currently running 802.11G. I want to replace my current router with an "802.11N" but want to know whether my current laptop configuration will enable this change to wireless "N"..Can anyone advise me whether I can:        a) upgrade my router only (i.e. to N)....with the current laptop config ?        b) upgrade my router and upgrade this laptop hardware internally to "N" ?? (is this possible or cost prohibitive ?)        c) or is my only alternative to upgrade the router and purchase a Lan Adapter card for this laptop ??? (Note: I have suspicions that my laptop will NOT allow wireless "N" because after updating the 5100 adapter with the most current driver from Lenovo (i.e. 13.1.1.1, dated 1/13/2020), I find that this drivers' properties only provide wireless a, b, and g protocol choices for selection.....no "N" choice is available.) I am not sure whether this laptop's configuration is not capable of "N" or whether some driver and/or parameter is incorrectly set.

Thank you for having this forum available.My husband passed down his Thinkpad A21M Type 2628-GTU to our son. The wifi card that was with it is a Lucent Technologies Orinoco Silver 11mbit/s t/n 03549501 p/n012938/c. When powered up last night, the ethernet was fully functional, but the wireless card didn't connect to the net. My husband assumed the Lucent card was bad. Is there something compatible I may buy to replace it? Do you have a suggestion on what he might have missed in trying to get it to work at home? He has used this laptop all over the country including at home before, so I would imagine he knows what he is doing. But, we do have a new service provider since the company upgraded his computer system. Thank you so much!

Welcome to the forum! Honestly, it's time to upgrade to a newer card anyway, at least b/g. Any PCMCIA wireless card will work with your A21m, it all depends on your router, and your personal preferences. Hope this helps.

Don?t think that someone can give you a proper answer since the compatibility depends on the BIOS?
If the BIOS would support the new WLan card, then you could use it for sure?

The point is that motherboards is able to handle the miniPCI WLan cards? the module is just plugged to the miniPCI slot and its removable?
So there is just an question regarding the BIOS support and I?m afraid you will need to test this at your own risk

Answer:intel 82845 gr card not compatible with vista

You can go to Intel site and see if there is a Vista driver and if not reinstall the XP driver. To do the XP driver you may not be able to autorun, but instead right click and "explore" the video driver to go inside and use setup for XP. The only other solution would be add a new video card to either pci slot or agp if you have one.

I am having similar difficulties, perhaps related?  I have a Lenovo G560 with wi-fi driver intel wi-fi link 1000 bgn.  The issue I have is with connection to my home network only.  This machine will successfully connect to other wireless networks, both public and secured (I provide a key).  I have tested as following:
I successfully connected to wireless network at work, McDonalds, Tim Horton's, etc.
I shut the machiee down, took it home and restarted at home.  I checked the wireless connections, and found my home network, 4 bars strength, and shows connected and internet active.  I launched IE and successfully connected to the internet.
Then, I connected the ethernet cable and our LAN hard-wired connection shows as connected, as well as the wireless network (they show up as two different network names), both connected.  I tested internet access and was successful.
I then disconnected the ethernet cable, again check the network connections, see my network listed and showing connected.  HOWEVER, now although the network says connected and with internet access, I am no longer able to connect to any websites, gives 'cannot display web page'.  Restarting the machine does not seem to correct the issue.

I successfully connected to wireless network at work, McDonalds, Tim Horton's, etc.
I shut the machiee down, took it home and restarted at home.  I checked the wireless connections, and found my home network, 4 bars strength, and shows connected and internet active.  I launched IE and successfully connected to the internet.
Then, I connected the ethernet cable and our LAN hard-wired connection shows as connected, as well as the wireless network (they show up as two different network names), both connected.  I tested internet access and was successful.
I then disconnected the ethernet cable, again check the network connections, see my network listed and showing connected.  HOWEVER, now although the network says connected and with internet access, I am no longer able to connect to any websites, gives 'cannot display web page'.  Restarting the machine does not seem to correct the issue.

Hello! Something of a frustrating problem here: I use a Lenovo Y560 laptop with an Intel Wifi Link 1000 BGN network adapter.  I've typicallyhad little problems connecting to wireless access points until two weeks ago. After a bit oftrial and error I realized that, though the adapter detects all the networks it used to at the samesignal strengths, it's unable to connect to anything that's basically not at full signal strength (prettymuch beside the computer). I've tried re-installing the manufacturer's drivers, installing Intel's drivers(which for some reason cause the adapter to be shown as an Intel Centrino-N wireless adapter ratherthan an Intel Wifi Link 1000), disabling 802.11n mode, disabling the "Allow computer to turn off thisdevice to save power", ensuring that transmit power is at the highest, roaming is at medium, switchedthrough channels... nothing. Performance is exactly the same, basically bouncing off access points withfour bars or less of signal strength. I've tested this on APs with Open, WEP, and WPA2 security, reset routers,etc. Verified the actual adapter, seemed well connected, cables were in place. Any ideas, because it's driving mea little bit nuts how though the networks are detected, connection's not possible. Thanks!

Hi All. I've just purchased a Lenovo U160 and I've not been able to solve an issue with the internal card reader. It's a "Realtek USB 2.0 Card Reader" internally wired to the motherboard. When I got the laptop, I put a Momentus XT in it and installed Windows. I've tried using the drivers that were included on the Lenovo recovery partition, the ones on their website, and the ones direct from Realtek with no success. The problem is, when my laptop resumes from sleep mode, I get a fair few "new USB device" noises and about the same number of "USB device not recognized" errors. If I look in the device manager when this happens, the card reader is no longer there, and I have an "Unknown Device". After a shut down, or a reboot, it's back again. I've tried another clean install of Windows but I'm still having the same issue (I've applied KB974476 and KB978258 before installing the drivers). There are no sleep options in the BIOS, it's very basic. I am running out of ideas.. Any thoughts?

Hi,

im looking at getting a internal mini wifi card for my A30 laptop, i know its old, but I just want to do it, can anyone recommend a cheap one to get?
Is ebay an option?

Can I use any internal mini wifi card or?

Thanks

Answer:Satellite A30 - I want a internal WiFi card

Hi!

Have you checked if you have a WiFi switch on your notebook? If you have such a switch you can buy and use an internal WiFi card.

You should use a WiFi card that supports the 802.11b standard, for example Intel.

Of course you can search on eBay and for a second hand card too because some Satellite A30 was delivered with WiFi card.

Answer:Re: Getting an internal wifi card for a Satellite P20-203?

Hello

Satellite P20-S203 is definitely Wi-Fi upgradable and according the Toshiba specification (at this time) you can use two compatible WLAN cards:
Wireless LAN card PA3212U-4MPC (Agere 802.11b) and PA3273U-2MPC (Atheros 802.11ab).

The card you want to use is newer product but I do not see any reason why it should not work. Try it simply and if there is some compatibility problem you can send it back.

Answer:Adding internal WiFi card to T40?

Hi Eitan. This unit is "wireless upgradable". You can install a wireless card in this unit yourself (slot is under the keyboard). Go to the following website to look at the part numbers listed for your machine: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-46474 Part #14 is the wireless card. Select card that is compatible to your T40. Since your machine is a 2373-A6U, you should look for a card listed under 2373-A6x  or 2373-xxU ("x" representing any wild character). You can order the card through Lenovo's website or call their parts department (800-388-7080). Provide them with the FRU number for the wi-fi card, and they can look up ther price and place the order for you). Also, make sure you UPDATE THE BIOS when installing the card, otherwise the systemboard might not recognize the card and you will get an error message at boot. Hope this helps. Mark

I've got a Lenovo g50-45 with Windows 7 64 bit installed and a few months ago the internal wifi card stopped working. I tried to troubleshoot it at the time but was at a busy point in my life so I just bought a USB adapter to make due for the time being. The internal card is the one it came installed with, an Atheros model:QCNFA335. This card is supposed to work for WiFi and Bluetooth. In my case when I look in device manager I see the Bluetooth device but not the WiFi card device. Pictured here The miniport adapter is a cord for the Netgear you also see in the device manager. That's the USB adapter I'm using to have internet access. I've gone into the BIOS and made sure Wireless is enabled. I tried installing the appropriate drivers found on Lenovo's site here but after going through the install process I just get an error message saying "No appropriate driver to be installed" pictured here. When I use the F7 function (Airplane Mode) the device settings shown are empty as seen here. Which is also weird considering Device Manager can still see the Bluetooth device. If I remove the internal card the Bluetooth disappears from the Device Manager so it's definitely from the internal card. From what I've read online other people who have had  this problem have figured that their laptops just have a defective card and the only option is to buy a new one.I'm sincerely hoping that's not the case as it's very concerning to he...

So I bought my laptop, a Pavilion 17-f113dx a little over 3 years ago.  I am swapping the drive for an ssd drive and I thought while I go to all the trouble of disassembling the laptop that I would change out the wifi card with a dual wifi/bluetooth card to improve wireless performance. I understand that there may be a whitelist in the bios of compatabile cards for a laptop this old.  Where would I be able to find that list?  Or is there a solution short of installing a hacked bios?

Answer:Compatible wifi dual card for 17-f113dx

Hi: There is no whitelist, but there is almost a bigger problem... 1. The notebook requires extensive disassembly to get to the wireless card.  If you can overcome that, then #2 is the killer. 2.  On most of these newer HP notebooks with single band wlan cards, there is only one antenna connected to the card, and there isn't a second one present. A dual band card such as the Intel 7260 N or AC requires 2 antennas to work. It will take even more disassembly including the display panel area to run the 2nd antenna. Do not rely on the picture in the service manual which normally shows two antennas. You will need to physically inspect your notebook's situation before buying a replacement card. If it has two antennas, then you are good to go. I would recommend the Intel 7260 dual band N or AC card for your 3 year old notebook.

Quickest way would be to pop off the back and first check if its a soldered in item. If it is plug-in, then count the pins on the connector and then go find a matching card version. I did that on my Acer laptop, but then, they are pretty much always a plug in thing. For compactness, they may be soldered in on the Y13.

My fiancee and I currently have the Dell Inspiron 17R SE laptop with the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230, and it has worked for a few months now up until the Monday of last week. While on the internet, my fiancee was noticing her wifi speed slowed down to a crawl. She performed speed tests to find out that the speed was not as high as it used to be. She updated drivers for the computer, as well as removed any clutter that would cause the wifi slowdown.
When we tried many options, they did not give us the results that we were looking for. Finally, after some process of elimination, we concluded that our wifi card needed a replacement. I don't want to get any old card to use and then find out that it doesn't fit or is not compatible with Windows 10. I have been taking my time to research what could be compatible to improve my laptop computer, but I have been coming up short.

What I would like to know is what wifi cards are compatible with our Dell computer so that we can get this replaced as soon as possible without having to pay out the nose for unneeded computer repair?

Hello everybody,  I have 2 notebooks and one server in my house.  One of my notebook is Y530 and the other one is Samsung u10.  The wifi connection dropped 10 out of 10 times when I copy large size file(600MB) to my home server with my Y530.  At first, I thought it was my wireless router problem.  So  I used my Samsung U10 and copy the same file to the server and this U10 copied the whole file to the server without any problem.  So I called Lenovo support and they said it is normal for a wireless line dropped off when transferring large data ~~~~~Is there any Y530 user here and encountered the same issue??  Pls help By the way, I have already un-installed the ReadComm and set the aggressive mode to low.  The issue still persist~~~~><

i have been through about 3 wifi cards in the spand of 2 laptops looking for the best range and speed without the interference. i had a realtek dualband wifi card with bluetooth and i sold that to get a a Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 expecting that this would be the top of the line in wifi standards. i mainly sold my realtek because a issue with buletooth, if im using the wifi and i connect my bluetooth headset to the laptop the sound would be choppy and laggy. so when i got my Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 i was amazed that this "was" no longer the issue. i connected my HBS-900 and walked out my apartment and down the hall and the bluetooth was clean! but it seems that now perhaps driver change the bluetooth on my Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 is also bad. i cant even step 2 feet away from my laptop without it cracking to hell, at 3 feet and not facing the laptop i disconnect. it was never like that before and i know its not my headset because when i connect it to my phone its flawless, and i connected another bluetooth adapter and tried and its fine. the issue is that when the wifi is on theirs too much interference and yes when i connect to a 5g network the issue is greatly reduced but for me 5g is mostly not a option. i was wondering if theirs a such thing as a shielded internal wifi? wouldn't think so... i would just love if i could use the bluetooth and the wifi flawlessly. i already for another reason plan to get a Alfa AC1200 external wifi adapter...

Answer:whats the best possible (Internal) wifi adapter+bluetooth card avaible

If you have mini pcie, the best one is AzureWave AW-CE123H. Not the best range in its class, but stability and resistance to interference is flawless. Speed is excellent as it can transfer all of my 300 Mbps internet on WiFi.

PS, the Marvell Avastar 802.11ac adapter in the Surface Pro 3 is even better than the AzureWave AW-CE123H since it offers the same performance (easily capable to provide 300 Mbps internet on WiFi) and stability while having more range than the AzureWave AW-CE123H.

usb dongles SUCK, low powered and garbage, the usb port can only provide 500ma to a usb device, any more it slows down.

Internal pci / x cards for desktops are FAR better, and if you need more range buy a extended antenna, those usb stick wifi are garbage.

Hello everyone,

I just bought the Wireless N PCI Adapter (TL-WN851ND) from TP-LINK for my Windows 10 PC. It says that it's compatible for Windows 7/Vista/XP but it doesn't say Windows 10 on there. I thought that since it works on Windows 7, it will probably work on Windows 10 aswell, but since I inserted the card and have it running my computer freezes randomly and gives me a blue screen sometime later. The blue screen also says MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION. Sometimes when I turn the PC on it will freeze and go to the blue screen while loading Windows 10.

Is there any possible way to make this adapter compatible for Windows 10 without it freezing all the time which leads to me having to reboot the computer over and over again?

I think you'll need more details than that since its a family, maybe providing the specific computer model would help.
Well, I have a ThinkPad T400, and its graphics also show up as that. I can assure you that it WILL work. The question is HOW WELL?
For basic functionality, you'll probably be fine.

Since the very first day I encounter problems with the integrated graphic card!When connecting external monitors, I never get the correct native resolution! I've tried it with 2 different models, a Dell 2005FPW and an Acer X193W+. I've installed the drivers for above monitors correctly; still no change! In addition I performed as well a clean installation of Windows XP with only drivers, I reflashed the BIOS to make sure that it is not corrupted / responsible for my issue - no luck! Finally, I took it one step further and installed Vista Ultimate 32bit as a trial version. Under Vista I don't even get the "Show modes this monitor does not support" in the ADVANCED MONITOR settings enabled - it is just grayed out! I have used all Intel drivers I could find on the internet, the original ones from the Lenovo support site as well as the latest from Intel and older drivers from other manufacturers - ... I am really getting frustrated! This is already an exchange device since the lack of external monitor resolution support appeared more or less to be a hardware issue. Since this exchanged device does not provide me with the proper resolutions either, I guess this is somehow a general issue and maybe blocked in the BIOS? Help would be very much appreciated!

Answer:IdeaPad S10 - Intel 945GM Graphic Card issues

I'm not sure if I understood your problem. If both the internal LCD and the external monitor are on together, the external monitor will have the same resolution as the LCD. To change the resolution of the external monitor, you need to toggle off the LCD monitor and make the adjustment at the Display Properties on the S10. You can read some details in my blog here.

Answer:Intel Pro wifi card upgrade for R51

You can't use 3945ABG since it's a mini-PCI-e card, and your machine calls for mini-PCI.If you're keen on Intel, 2200BG would be my preferred choice. Also, IBM (Atheros) b/g and a/b/g card will work just fine in that R51.As for Linux, Ubuntu is always a good place to start IMO.Good luck.

Does your N-2230 card have a FRU number on it? If it doesn't then it won't work with your E130, since it is not sourced from Lenovo. For example my T430u's N-2230 have the following FRU information printed on the card. http://www.flickr.com/photos/lead_org/8449497451/Generic N-2230 card won't work in your E130.

Answer:T420 using Intel N5300 wifi card

Hey Mcdull,
 
Lenovo no longer supports intel N5300 but being as they both use PCI-E slots I would suggest you try it and see if your computer recognize the card. Then you would have to use a lower version of the driver version 15.1.0.18.

My computer is running on Windows 7 Professional 32bit. It has worked fine for the last 2 years. But recently, my wifi card has started me giving me problems. It detects the wireless networks but connects to them only for around 10-15 minutes after which the connection is not even visible in the list. Then after 30-40 minutes, it can connect but the same problem is there.

Also, I tried to make my own ad-hoc connections and saved them. These connections do work and my friends are able to connect to it and the connection remained active for hours. I did it to check whether the Wifi card is working or not. It does work but only with the outgoing connections that are made by my computer. The networks that in range and are giving problem with my wifi card are working fine for my friends. So, I guess it is not the network's problem.

When I tried troubleshooting it, it gave the problem 'Problem with wireless adapter or access point'. I also tried installing all different driver versions and rollbacking to the default version for my wireless card but the same problem is there. Although in device manager, It says the device is working properly.

Please help me in solving this problem. Exact name of WiFi Card in Device Manager- Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN

Answer:Intel 5100 AGN WiFi Card problem

The same complaints and problems with this 5100AGN adaptor has been around for a long time.

There are countless threads about this on the internet. It seems that disabling the 802.11n Only setting in the routers settings and running in mixed wireless mode can help. Updating the drivers can also help, try the Intel site. > Intel? Driver Update Utility

There are plenty of long threads about this ongoing problem with some possible solutions, so your not alone.

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
You can take a look at this Maintenance Manual (pg 84) to see the whitelist for the WLAN.
Check the cards at the right column and check the compatibility of the Model.
Check the FRU number that will be the part number you can try ordering from Lenovo Part Sales.

Hello. I have a Lenovo Y650. I recently upgraded my memory to two parallel 4gb PC8500 sticks (mushkin from newegg) for a total of 8gb of ram. My laptop previously had one 1gb and one 2gb sticks (both micron) which were in it when it shipped from the factory. For some reason when the new sticks were installed it disabled my Intel WiFi link 5100 AGN adapter. As such the adapter doesn't even work and gives me an error code that the device could not be initiated. When the original sticks of memory are reinserted everything works as it did before. So next step was to make sure the drivers were updated. There is two drivers listed on the Lenovo support page for the device for my 64-bit Win 7 setup (http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-72987). Neither fixed the problem. Anyone have any idea whats going on here? I would really like the extra memory capacity.

Question: IdeaPad Y530

Dear Expertise, My second Lenovo is IdeaPad Y530.It will be delivered after a wk. My first Lenovo is ThinkPad T400. My question is: Is "ThinkVantage System Update" also installed in IdeaPad Y530? I love this Lenovo utility. Why? It makes my life simple & less headache which I frequently faced while I was using Dell Inspiron. Kindly confirm me whether this "ThinkVantage" is bundled with IdeaPad. My regards Dr. Khan

Answer:IdeaPad Y530

ThinkVantage is not bundled with the Y530, which is aimed more toward the consumer market. It still includes a backup partition as well as the option of creating your own backup disks. If you purchased your Ideapad with Vista 64 I would highly recommend updating your drivers from the respective manufacturers websites versus Lenovo's as I have achieved much better results and stability so far with this method.

I want to install a Intel N 5300 card on T430. Does anyone has such experience? Which type card should I bought? mini PCI or half mini PCI? Does 5300 work with T430? Thanks.

Answer:Does T430 work with Intel N 5300 wifi card?

5300 intel card won't work with the T430. The T430 uses half size mPCIe card.

This one:

Because my desktop was situated at the other side of the house from the router, I bought what I thought was an official Intel card with this antenna because I knew the longer range and clearance would help. However, once the card came in it turns out while it does have the right mPCI Intel card, the mPCI to PCIe adapter and antennas are very different, and the antennas are the generic short black plastic ones
I did buy it through Amazon third party seller but I don't want to go through the hassle of returning it as the card is still genuine and the adapter has a metal heat shield which I think is good as it bumps up against my GPU, but I had really shitty speeds until I fiddled with the antennas a bit and it's still not the best.

So, is it possible to buy this antenna standalone, or is there a similar one? I don't really want to go for the goofy extra long black antennas, or the bases that look like automotive CB radio antennas. And I'd like fast shipping and for it to be under $20CAD or so inc shipping, if possible.

Thanks.
