Thinkpad Edge 13 - 0197 wifi upgrade 1802 error

#1 Post by angel4b » Mon Aug 07, 2017 3:06 pm

Hello everyone. I am trying to upgrade the wifi on this Thinkpad Edge 13 - 0197, and am having a hard time. I thought I looked up the proper whitelisted cards for this model, and came up with FRUs: 60Y3195 and 60Y3251. When I installed them, I got 1802 error. I have the latest bios for this computer 1.25 (6ZET38WW). Any thoughts or ideas on how to get one of them to work?


Thanks.

There is a whitelist in BIOS / UEFI which contains wifi cards that are allowed to be used in laptop. The rest will not work. There is probably not much you can do about it. There are some BIOS mods, but they are generally designed for "real" thinkpads (T series, X series, etc). The rest of lenovo's product range will not get it, I think.

I am familiar with the whitelist...the thing is, I thought I selected a card that is on the whitelist. So, I am not sure why it is not being accepted...

Only allowed cards are those, which laptop came with either as standard or as an option. You should check if your laptop was released with card you try put in.
