You should be checking with Lenovo for cards that are supported by their device.

Hello Jonathan1000,  

  

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.    

  

Please be aware that the installation or use of Intel® Wireless Adapters is subject to country-specific legal regulations. An adapter installed in a system that is being sold on the market doesn't necessarily mean that the same wireless adapter can be used or installed in another system for the above-mentioned reason. As each country may have different regulatory requirements, before you install/change the Wireless Adapter in a system, you must contact the OEM to determine if the adapter you plan to install is approved for use in your system and country. You are required to follow the OEM post-approval requirements. You can check that here:

Additionally, if the OEM offers you the compatible wireless cards, they might be able to sell them to you (or at least give you the exact part number), also, they can help you with the installation process and warranty coverage if applicable.   

  

Please check the following link for different OEMs support websites:
