Q: T530 Wireless+Bluetooth Replacement Card

Hi, there. We own a T530 that has an Intel N-2200 WiFi card built in. We're interested if there is a replacement WiFi Intel card that also has Bluetooth connectivity and if so, which one is whitelisted by Lenovo (BIOS)? Thank you.

Preferred Solution: T530 Wireless+Bluetooth Replacement Card

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.)

I purchased a new Lenovo ThinkPad T530 about 6-8 months ago. The model number is 2359CTO. I ordered it with Bluetooth, and it shipped with working Bluetooth, but I only tested it once or twice, since I don't normally use Bluetooth. Now, I need to use Bluetooth, but the feature seems gone from my computer. There is absolutely no mention of it in Device Manager anywhere.  There were two pieces of Bluetooth software installed in my programs list. Some kind of driver from Intel related to Bluetooth, and then some ThinkPad bluetooth software. I tried uninstalling them, thinking that I could re-install them from the Driver Matrix, hoping that would fix my problem. I downloaded "ThinkPad Bluetooth with Enhanced Data Rate Software for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), Vista (32-bit, 64-bit) - ThinkPad" from the Lenovo website, version, last updated March 25, 2013. There isn't any second package related to Intel at all. I went to http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect to check if Intel would provide any drivers and they do not see the Bluetooth hardware either. I tried installing the ThinkPad Bluetooth with EDR software that I downloaded above, and it refused to install saying that no Bluetooth hardware was detected. However, I know that Bluetooth hardware is in my computer, since it is listed on the recipt for my CTO custom laptop and since it was working several months ago. I bought an extended waranty, but I'm still within the 1st year o...

Dear Lenovo, Users, I have a T530 with integrated Intel GPU (2392APU) and the fan needs to be replaced.I found the following replacements:- 04W6904 FRU FAN Integrated Furukawa FANS- 04W6906 FRU FAN Integrated AVC EQUIVALENT- 04W6905 FRU FAN Integrated Delta EQUIVALENT Here are my questions:a) Do they differ in regards of noise / dbs. Which has the less noise?b) Can I use a heatpipe for the NVIDIA T530 versions as well, and does this has any benefits in regards of noise?c) Can I replace just the fan itself, what is the partnumber / spec (e.g. diameters, mounting points, etc.) to find a after-market hardware solution (silent 3rd party fan) for the fan only. Thanks a lot, Martin

I recently performed a clean full system upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 on my T530.Everything is working well and I must admit I am very pleased with the features and performance of Windows 10.  When I turn on Bluetooth it works and I can connect my pc to my remote HP printer and send jobs for printing.  The only issue I am having is that when I turn on Bluetooth no Bluetooth icon appears in the toolbar like it did with Windows 7.  I have downloaded (g4wh01ww.exe Bluetooth 4) from Lenovo Support.  When I go to install it I receive a notification that it is already installed.  When I go to Windows Settings and click on devices no bluetooth shows.  I have a small airplane in the toolbar which shows that I am connected wirelessly.  The no show if the Bluetooth icon might be characteristic of Windows 10, if so I can live with it.  Am I missing something?Thanks,Altoid666

I have a T530 laptop and occasionally, when I pick it up (physically) or if it's on a non-flat surface, I see a message flickering for a second on the screen that bluetooth services is disconnecting (or something like that - it's disappears too fast to read properly) and the bluetooth device stops functioning. The laptop is about a year old, but this has been happening since I bought it - it just took me some time to figure out that picking it up is the cause. I think the laptop warps a little and this causes something to disconnect.After this is happening, the only way to restore it is to restart the machine. Is this a known issue with this model or is it just my unit?

A:Wireless Card Upgrade or Replacement

Limited. Your laptop will have the whitelist that confines you to options listed in the Service Manual. If you were happy with the performance of the card when it was working your best bet is just to get an exact replacement which we should be able to find for a few dollars. Physical replacement is very easy. Just remove the access panel on the bottom of the laptop and it is in there.  Atheros AR9280 802.11a/b/g/n WLAN module   482260-001 Broadcom 4321 802.11a/b/g/n WLAN module   453730-001 http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-Pavilion-DV9000-Wireless-WiFi-Card-482260-001-/361868917768?hash=item5441117c08:gzYAAOSw9GhYanFv If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Hello all. I currently have a Lenovo ThinkPad, which has an Intel Wireless-N 7260 installed. I have been fighting with this thing, for months, to get a stable connection. I was told to send the laptop in for repair under warranty, but it will be less hassle and less time for me to just replace the card with a more reliable model.

Hi. I'm looking to replace the original Broadcom wireless card inside my HP Envy 13 with an Intel card, specifically an Intel 8260GW. I've been greeted with a beautiful 'Wireless module not supported' error, code 704, which I assume has something to do with the BIOS having a whitelist. I've tried disabling and clearing TPM in the BIOS Security options with no success . Am I out of luck, or could anyone point me towards something I could do to get that card working?  Thanks.

A:Wireless card replacement - HP Envy 13

Hi: I am very surprised to read that you received that notice. Since about 2013, HP had removed the BIOS whitelists from their notebooks. I have a HP 350 G1 notebook that I bought last year and I installed an Intel 7260 in it with no problem at all. I only did it because I saw that other forum members had been putting any wireless cards they wanted in their notebooks. Prior to about 2013, every HP notebook has a whitelist and folks got the dreaded 'Wireless module not supported' notice. That means possibly that HP is returning to the whitelists. The only suggestion I can offer would be to install a supported wlan card listed in the service manual for your notebook and see if that works. You would have to get the specific card listed and it must have the HP part number on it, or it will not work. Chapter 3, pp 15-16 provide the list of the two wireless cards supported with their part numbers. Hopefully, the Intel dual band AC card listed will work. http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04996189 If your notebook does not have two antennas present, a dual band card won't work. A lot of notebooks with these newer M2 single band cards only have 1 antenna present. Adding a 2nd antenna would require complete disassembly of the notebook including the display panel area to properly route a second antenna.

I have a Compaq (HP) CQ60-418DX with a Atheros AR5007 and I am currently on a wireless G connection, my wife's netbook is getting better speeds then I am, I feel like I am on dial up still.

So anyone know of a good mini PCI express card for laptops with high performance? The card is mega easy to get at so the upgrade part will take less then 2 minutes, this laptop has ports for almost everything upgradeable on the laptop.

I want this upgrade so I can download the Free 3D models from DAZ3D for my artwork and to play a little America's Army 3 and Unreal Tournament. Yes I was a gamer once.

Oh or a driver that might work, I found a 32bit driver but running 64bit and not sure if that will work or not but I think finding a better card will serve me better over time, as I plan to upgrade everything I can along the way.
Thanks in advance for any help.

A:HP Envy17 j110sl Wireless Card Replacement

Yes at a minimum. Your laptop is new enough not to have the "whitelist" problem so you can install any wireless adapter of the right form factor. The big problem is likely to be if HP only has provided one (1) wireless antenna lead. If so your upgrade options are very limited. If you have 2 leads, then your best wireless card to install is this one: https://www.amazon.com/Intel-Dual-Band-Wireless-Ac-Hmc/dp/B00DMCVKMU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1490216841&sr=8-1&keywords=Intel+7260ac Intel 7260ac  + Bluetooth See page 45 of the manual. This is not a difficult installation since you have an easy open access panel. If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Hi -- I'm posting this to save you some time.  After the last Windows 10 update, I lost bluetooth on both a T530 and T430, with the standared Broadcom daughter bluetooth card.  I followed all the instructions on various forums and youtube videos and nothing worked.  (ie: I went into device manager, showed hidden devices, and deleted them; I tried to reinstall the latest bluetooth drivers from Lenovo, etc, etc,)  Nothing worked - and could no longer find or install bluetooth at all on the machines. Finally, I found the solution:  Download this file from intel:  https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28009?v=t If the link doesn't work, the name of the file is BT_20.70.0_64_Win10.exe  (That's the 64 bit version, there's also a 32 bit version.) Run the file as administrator, wait for it to load for a few minutes, and then restart the computer.  After the restart, bluetooth will reappear in the device manager, with all the correct thinkpad broadcom drivers, and all the devices you've attached to the machine. I hope this is helpful.  It worked for me on two machines.

I know this question has been asked across different forums throughout the net. However, after I've almost tried everything now to solve this issue, I'm finally addressing the Lenovo community hoping to resolve this issue. Issue: Bose bluetooth headset QC35 gets successfully connected to my Lenovo T530 but doesn't show up as an audio device under Win10 Pro. In first stage, the connection seemed to be "fine" as the device name of the headset (configured through the Bose app) appeared under Win10 device manager. Already tried: 1. 3 different bluetooth USB dongles2. Inbuilt Broadcomm bluetooth device3. All imageanable settings within Windows4. Different driver sets5. Bose hotline (very unsatisfying support)6. Bose shop (as well very unsatisfying and useless answers)7. Windows support (very, very unsatisfying support)8. Completely deleting the headset from Windows (including driver)9. Resetting the headset Overall, the outcome is that I still can't use the QC35 as a bluetooth headset with my T530. Trying with different other notebooks and Apple devices worked fine. Looking forward to receiving your much appreciated thoughts and possible ideas on how to solve this problem.

Hi, I have some issues with my existing Intel WiFi Card - 6205. Before putting in a support requst I was wondering what are the compatiable cards for this product? Looking online, I found at the link http://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/t530_fru_bom.pdf that Intel 6250 WiMax and N-6300 are compatiable under the FRUs 60Y3195 and 60Y3233 respectively. However, Intel has just launched the 7260 AC card which is much faster and I was wondering if the T530 supports that i.e. if it has been whitelisted given that it was whitelisted for X140e and is being offered for newer Thinkpads online. I would appreciate if anyone can provide more information about compatible cards and the possibility of an AC card on T530. Cheers,507437218

I do not have an external hard drive caddy and would rather not have the expense of buying one - otherwise I would just put the drive in that and copy the files.I would like to put the SSD hard drive from the T470 into the main bay of the T530 to see whether it all works ok and if so to put the the old hard drive from the T530 in a caddy in the ultrabay to get the files off it, before then reinstalling it using a system image on a portable hard drive. Will this scheme work? Can I take the hard drive from the T470 and put it in the T530 and expect the T530 to function? Can I do any damage thereby? Thanks for your help Dan

I have a T530 that I had bought with a 500GB hdd installed and with a 16GB mSATA Sandisk ExpressCache. I decided toupgrade to 500GB SSD and that made my 16GB mSATA redundant. I would like to know if I can remove the mSATA disk and replace it with a WWAN card. Thanks,-shishir

I've done everything but stand on my head and I cannot get the P50 and the Sony to see each other to pair. I use the headset everday at the gym with an iPod Nano with no problem. With the P50 I've tried "add a bluetooth device' and 'show bluetooth devices'. In neither instance does the Sony appear. Suggestion? Mark

Hi folks -

This is my first time posting here, so I?ll apologize in advance for any unintentional breech of protocol. If I have inadvertently posted in the wrong forum, I?ll trust the moderator to move me to the appropriate place. And I will also apologize for an admittedly long post.

This is not a question but a possible solution for all those suffering under the trials and tribulations of bluetooth technology. I too struggled for a couple of years trying to figure it out and finally decided to go around the mountain rather than move it. I?m semi-retired and have a small but limited budget for gadgets. I ultimately found an inexpensive solution that suites me.

I listen to streaming radio all day ? mostly talk (a la The Tech Guy), but some music as well. After streaming from an old Samsung netbook I use as a media server, I like to have the sound coming from at least two speakers so I can hear it all over the house. I used to LOVE my 900 MHz wireless speakers until they finally quit working (wore out two sets!) and I could no longer find them for sale anymore. I decided to change with the times and explore what could be done using bluetooth technology.

After some research, I found a small bluetooth transmitter on Amazon that was advertised to pair two speakers at the same time for under $25 (US), if memory serves. I then purchased an inexpensive matched pair of bluetooth speakers for $29.95. With a small amount of difficulty, I eventually got these to pair at the ... Read more

Hey to TSG!!

I need help in this one. My Bluetooth used to capture others (with no password) wireless networks but if I do extensive use on it, it will not work. For one wireless network, it gets connected but nothing appears and for another, it doesnt get connected at all though it used to. They all are in low signal but they used to work fine!

I dont know what to do right now. Is my bluetooth screwed up? I used to download large files (more than 500 mb) before but now it doesnt get connected.

Please tell me what to do firstly!

I replaced the oem wifi card with a card I got from ebay. Belarc advisor identifies it as Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter, HOWEVER the purchase order says it's an IBM Lenovo G550 Fru 60Y3221 Anatel WiFi Wireless Card. I cannot for the life of me find drivers that will work with this thing, been in IT 20 years and I'm admitting defeat on this one so any help would be much appreciated. I can't find out much about Anatel except that their in Brazil their web site is in Portuguese and Babelfish was 0 help in finding drivers. I should mention that the thing shows up in device manager as enabled and working and the wifi light is on solid not blinking as it does when there is trouble. Apart from that, no Love at all. Edit: The following #s appear on the card:Lenovo P/N 60y3220, 20-002304FRU: 60Y3221H/C: 1ZHJWE/C: N62191 Thanks,Paul

I used to use a program called Wireless Net Watcher that would list all devices that connected to my Wi-Fi network, which was a handy way to check if anyone was freeloading on my network. It worked great until I recently upgraded my router and Wi-Fi adapter (the old router was dying). I was getting internet dropouts and slowdowns until I finally figured out that WNW was the culprit. Disabling it got rid of the problems and reenabling it would bring the problems back so I had to get rid of it.

Does anyone know of another program that can replace WNW?

A:Need Replacement for Wireless Net Watcher

The ones I've used:

WiFi Network Monitor : Free Tool to Watch/Monitor your Wireless network from hackers/rogue/unauthorised users | www.SecurityXploded.com - scan only. Is fully portable.

https://www.softperfect.com/products/networkscanner/ - Live Display mode notifies new changes


Perhaps SoftPerfect WiFi Guard would be a better option. I've just installed it and it's pretty much the same as WNW.

So, the Realtek card that comes by default with the X100e kinda sucks. It sucks a little bit in Windows 7, and it sucks a lot in Linux. As I'm looking to spend most of my time in Linux as the development I do is a pain in the rear in Windows, I was hoping to swap the wireless card out for something with an Atheros or even an Intel chipset. Now, I'm aware of the BIOS lock/1802 error that has been around in other IBM and Lenovo ThinkPads, so I would not be surprised if that's the case with the X100e. Has anyone attempted a switch on this? Am I limited to the Realtek or the Intel 5100 cards, or would any recent Lenovo-branded wireless card theoretically work? Is there a way to sniff for the allowed cards in the BIOS? I may pull apart a T61 this week just to see if that card works in the X100e, but if anyone has immediate answers, that would be awesome. Thanks!

A:X100e Wireless Replacement?

Hello,   The X100e uses a half-height Mini-PCIe card, so you will need a card that is in this smaller form-factor.  Here's a list of half-height Mini-PCIe cards you might try: Atheros AR5B95 (Atheros AR9285 chipset, 802.11b/g/n)Broadcom BCM94312 (Broadcom 4312 chipset, 802.11a/b/g)Broadcom BCM94322 (Broadcom 4322 chipset, 802.11a/g/n)Dell Wireless 1397 (Broadcom 4312 chipset, 802.11b/g)Dell Wireless 1510 (Broadcom chipset?, 802.11a/b/g/n)GigaByte GN-WS32L  (Ralink RT3090 1T1R chipset, 802.11b/g/n)Intel WiFi Link 1000 (112BN_HMW chipset, 802.11b/g/n)Intel WiFi Link 5100 (512AN_HMW chipset, 802.11a/b/g/n)Intel WiFi Link 5150 (512ANX_HMW chipset, 801.11a/b/g/n, WiMAX)Intel WiFi Link 5300 (533AN_HMW chipset, 802.11a/b/g/n) This list was put together in large part by looking at seller's descriptions through eBay, so I am not 100% certain of the specifications.  Be sure to verify as best as you can that the device will work in your X100e.  Also, the Intel cards reportedly only work in notebooks with Intel CPUs and chipsets. Regards, Aryeh Goretsky
