Need some help with a wifi card replacemnt for my yoga s1 12


I had to replace the motherboard in my lenov thinkpad yoga s1 12 gen 2. I could not find the same board and went with a 00ht712 I7 8 gb ram unit. My current wifi card does not fit, does some one have the part number for the wifi card so I can get the correct one? Also I noticed there are different sizes for the connectors to the antenna, mine are the larger ones. Will that limit me to a 802.11 n card?

Thanks for any help.

Hello marmiatge,



When it comes to wireless adapters, there are many form factors available (connector type + adapter size).



In this case, it's likely that the new board you purchased was intended to be used with a different wireless adapter type, hence the mismatching wireless antennas. This won't necessarily limit you to 802.11n, it will only limit which adapter model and brands will work for your laptop.



Our recommendation will be to contact your computer manufacturer (Lenovo*), as they are the only ones who can tell you which wireless adapters are approved for your replacement motherboard. We don't keep this sort of information on file, as it's possible that it may not be an Intel® adapter. We also recommend purchasing the adapter and the antennas from your computer manufacturer, if at all possible.
