Introduction

If you are having Wi-Fi problems and none of the solutions found on this troubleshooting page work, you may need to replace the physical Wi-Fi card in your Lenovo Yoga C930-13IKB. The only Wi-Fi card that is compatible with the Lenovo Yoga C930-13IKB is the Intel 9260 Wi-Fi card. Do not install a different Wi-Fi card.

Before buying a new card, check if all the wires are connected to the Wi-Fi card currently in your laptop. Poor physical connection to the motherboard or antenna will cause Wi-Fi problems.

    • Use a Phillips #00 screwdriver to remove the single 2 mm screw that attaches the card to the motherboard.
