IrishFavor Posted October 9, 2015 Share Posted October 9, 2015 I have a Lenovo yoga 2 11" laptop (the one that was plagued with wireless issues) and have since been through a few wireless cards. Firstly i was able to get the original wireless card (RTL8723U) to work in both Ubuntu, and Kali by using rfkill and a few other comands (http://billauer.co.il/blog/2014/08/linux-ubuntu-yoga-hardware-blocked-wireless-lan/) to keep the Lenovo wireless utility from running and go the fix to run persistently at startup. I then switched to the RTL8187L and that worked without issue in Windows 8.1 (x64), Ubuntu, Kali. Recently i have attempted to upgrade my wireless card to the (Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 Plus Bluetooth) and i receive an error saying "Unauthorized. Wireless network card is plugged in. Power off and remove it" After some research it appears that the problem exists because the card is not white-listed in the BIOS. The reason i was upgrading to this card is because after some research it appears that it supports monitor and injection modes under Kali and Ubuntu if anyone knows of another wireless AC card that supports both i would be willing to try that. As far as troubleshooting i have scoured the internet and it appear that the BIOS is locked however someone has been able to unlock it on v1.05 and v1.09 and have sent a request to (https://www.bios-mods.com/) to have the white-list removed for the BIOS on the yoga 2 13". however it appears that it hasn't been removed yet, not sure if they have the same BIOS. I do know that the internals do differ slightly but they both come with the same stock wireless card. I have Updated my BIOS to latest version (AAEC94WW) and that has given me the option to enable and disable secure boot. Toggling the option did not resolve the issue, however when i disable the wireless option on the configuration screen the machine boots fine to Kali and Ubuntu, Bluetooth is operational however wireless is disabled. If i boot to windows 8 Bluetooth is also disabled but if i restart the service Bluetooth works.. Any insight or recommendations are greatly appriciated, thank you in advance for any assistance . TL;DR: Lenovo yoga 2 11" wireless AC (Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 Plus Bluetooth) Unauthorized Error. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
