1802 Atheros Wifi card error

#1 Post by DbfThinkpad23 » Sun Dec 02, 2012 11:58 am

Hey all,

I got an Atheros ar9285H wifi card for my thinkpad yesterday and spent about 3 hours trying to get installed but the 1802 error kept coming up. My thinkpad is a t6u r400 7438 and I cannot figure out what to do. I googled like crazy trying to find zander's bios mod for the r400 but I just cannot find it, i also tried the no1802 hack, didn't work at all. If anyone has the r400 pre-modded bios file, please post it below. Thank you,
Ben.

Welcome to the forum!

I'm not aware of any modded BIOS for your machine.

You might just have to stick with a Lenovo-issued card.

Good luck.

You could check out bios-mods.com and its forum. I'm sure you can make a request over there if someone hasn't already.

Actually, someone did, but not for that error:

You should post another general whitelist one.

There is a modded BIOS for R500. I don't have the file, but it does exist.

I'm pretty sure that you're allowed to post a link.

Thanks for the offer, but I don't own an R500 anymore.
