I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I've a problem with my T480 (non-s) with the Fibocom L830-EB after installing the newest firmware version 18300.1002.00.01.01.17 und driver.  Since this one new firmware, the L830-EB it is unusable for me due to connection dropouts and even due to L830-EB-device-whole-disappear-issues on system driver level, where only a device-disable-and-reenable on the device manager or a reboot helps then in these cases. The longest stable connection i have had since then is about one minute, after which the problems will occur, in other words it is completely unusable now. Please fix it, or alternately provide the old firmware with downgrade-option. My T480 is running with Windows 10 1809 and Arch-Linux (full-encrypted dual-boot).

Windows still uses Microsoft made "Generic Mobile Broadband" driver, even after installing the Fibocom L830-EB Wireless WAN Dreiver For Windows 10 (Versio 1709 or later).  This ends in only giving a 50 mbps LTE connection even if the location, sim card and subscription gives 300 mps connection possibillities.   Windows only sees the generic driver, even if I manually try to choose a driver for this. No Fibocom drivers are found in the list.  Is there something that got broken during the latest 1803 installation? Has anyone else noticed this?

Over the last few weeks, I've had at least a half dozen T480s that have severe spikes in latentcy and packet loss when using the Fibocom L850-GL, making them pretty much useless for our users who need them for remote desktop.The usual "working" baseline for these machines on our network is around 40-70ms pings. Show below are the occasional spikes past 3 seconds and timeouts along with the current firmware.    The work around I was using to fix this problem was uninstalling the drivers/firmware from Device Manager, and letting Windows reinstall them, but that doesn't seem to be working anymore.  Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, I installed the most recent firmware update (fwdphb07) and run into problems with my T450s: My displays (two attached via DP, the main display with DP 1.2) stay blank until the windows login screen shows up (no windows is starting screen). The problem is that I have a SSD password so the password dialog is not shown on the external screen. I downgraded the firmware to fwdphb06 (installed fwdphb03 before, because fwdphb06 does not allow for a direct downgrade) and everything works fine again. @Lenovo: can you please fix this issue - if you need more information please contact [email protected] users with the same issue: try to downgrade the FW Have a nice dayMichael

I downloaded the Firemware update from here: https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/nz2wi01w.exeThe Readme is Here:https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/nz2wi01w.txt When I try to run the unpacked executable, L831_FWUpdateTool_L831_V2E.0C.00.16_NAND, nothing happens. Don't even get a window that then prompty dissapears, just nothing happens. I've tryed starting it from a commandline and using /? type switches to see if I can get anything else from it but nothing happens. Also checked to see that it's not blocked, or being stopped by AV, also checked event logs, there's nothing there.... Any ideas? Is it me, or is the EXE at fault? I've checked the manufacturer site directly, but they don't offer firmware downloads (As I'd exepect really) My laptop is currently running v7 so this would be jumping to v16, as at the moment I only get a "Limited Service" with my sim card. I've checked the Sim in a MiFi device and on a phone and it works fine. So I'm hoping a firmware update will help. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Hi everyone, I'm a student and planning to buy the Campus version of the Thinkpad T480s with the Nvidia chip. It doesn't come with a WWAN module, but I'd like to add one. Information on that topic seems sparse and I tried to look for M.2 slot WWAN modules at different online stores. I found a few ones, namely- Huawei ME906S, listed to be compatible with 2016 Thinkpads- Sierra EM7455, listed to be compatible with the *70 series Thinkpads- Fibocom L831-EA (Intel XMM 7160), listed to be compatible with *70 series Thinkpads According to this reddit, at least the Huawei and Sierra ones are incompatible unauthorized for a T480s which, if true, is simply inconvenient, annoying and disappointing. As I mentioned above, buying a Thinkpad with a pre-installed LTE module is not an option because I'd like to have the Nvidia chip and am buying a Lenovo Campus Thinkpad which comes at a reduced price (and in Germany, it's the only way to get one with an Nvidia chip). As the Lenovo configurator and the T480s platform specifications indicate, the Fibocom L830-EB (Intel XMM 7262) and Fibocom L850-GL (Intel XMM 7360) are officially used and should definitely be compatible. However, I can't find them anywhere except pre-configured with a Thinkpad, which is not an option for me. Can anyone please help me with either of the following:- Is the Fibocom L831-EA (Intel XMM 7160) authorized for and compatible with the T480s?- Is there any place where I can get a Fibocom L83...

A week ago at regular system update request I installed the offered "Lenovo SSD & HDD Firmware Update Tool"  10.3010 on P50 running Windows 7/64. Message appeared that I needed to remove password on (only) the factory 500GB HDD. Passwords also exist on the two SSD's but no action requested re them. I presumed the SSD updates were installed and I would have to later temporarily remove HDD PW and run the update again. So I removed the HDD PW just now and went to System Update online but message then was that there was nothing for my machine. How do I force installing the update again, if that is the right way to do it. Is there any way to see if it somehow took care of the problem automatically as soon as soon as I removed the PW? Thanks.

A few seconds later, the Windows 'Device Disconnected' chime sounds5. A few seconds later, the Windwos 'Device Connected' chime sounds6. I can re-install the drivers7. Cycle back to point 2.  I'm unable to uninstall the device as it doesn't ever show in device manager; just constantly get Windows finding / un-finding the device, and it never installs. Running latest version of Windows 10; Vantage + Windows seem to think everything is updated. Thanks in advance!

I bought X1 Carbon 6th and X280, both with Fibocom L850-GL. WWAN with Linux do not work. I searched and found the reason. The PCI-E must be disabled, so that the card can run with USB. It seems that Lenovo did not offered a solution since July 2017.  I searched but do not find any direct contact to Lenovo to ask the question.  The WWAN is important for me and Windows is no option anymore. Anybody know if there is an other WWAN card wich works with Linux  and X1 Carbon 6th / X280 ?Anybody know if there is a chance that Lenovo solve the problem with a bios update?

 Hello All, New T480 with the Fibocom L850-GL wwan card. Clean install of Windows 10 Pro x64, Redstone 4 (v. 1803). All Windows Updates applied. All Lenovo updates applied through the Vantage app via the Microsoft Store, and manually checked from the support page of the website (BIOS, WWAN, etc. updates). Following the manual, I pulled the external battery, disabled the internal battery, then inserted my T-Mobile USA sim card, then reassembled everything, then rebooted. Manually installed the latest L580-GL drivers from Lenovo. First off, the L850-GL is being shown as a USB device, as opposed to PCIE, with a hardware device instance path of USB\VID_8087&PID_0AC9&MI_00\7&4FA6012&0&0000, and a hardware location of 0000.0000.0000.003.000.000.000.000.000 in the properties dialogue screen in Device Manager. The Driver tab shows the provider is Microsoft with a date of 4/10/2018 and a version of 10.0.17134.1.... I suspect much of that to be a sign that something isn't right from the get-go... Second, every time I close the lid of the machine or leave it running long enough to enduce the proper level of sleep/hibernation, the card simply stops (with a hardware error 43 warning in Device Manager). At that point, my "T-Mobile LTE" network option no longer appears in the Windows 10 notification/network connections sidebar. My only recourse thus far has been to uninstall the L850 in device manager, "Sca...

Hi. My brand new T480s is giving me a rough time already. I bought it with the Fibocom L850-GL modem and inserted an AT&T sim. Today I wanted to upload 14 files totaling about 1.66gb over cellular as the upload speeds are much better in town than they are on the home internet. Also I have 48gb of data on the plan so let's ignore that. First question, why does it keep changing the network back to metered mode? Every time I turn cellular off and back on it's again marked as such. Even if the connection drops briefly and comes back on its own it is again metered. One drive refuses to upload on metered connections until I go into it and hit resume. If the connection drops briefly one drive pauses again as it is again metered. That's the first, and the less troublesome, issue believe it or not. The real problem I have is, once I do have one drive uploading, I can get speeds according to one drive of around 2.6 or 2.7mb/s. It'll do that for about 4 minutes or so, till it reaches around 80 to 100mb transfered, then the computer will just hickup and stop responding for a few seconds then come back, and now one drive is uploading at 0.0kb/s and my computer starts getting hot. Looking in task manager, I see that system is using 99 percent of the cpu, I'm talking about the system process and not speaking of some process running under the system account just to be extra clear.

I initially bought an X1C6 that showed the WWAN card as enabled in BIOS. When I found out that the card was not present, I returned the laptop. After doing further research, I settled on a T480s that was WWAN upgradable, expectating a wait for the EM7565 with FRU 01AX762. Now the Fibocom L850-GL with FRU 01AX786 is available for new builds, but I cannot find where to buy it on the site or elsewhere; if this is not simply due to me being unable to navigate the poorly-designed Lenovo site, it effectively punishes anyone who ordered early. Finally, I tried my old EM7345 with FRU 04X6014 and encountered the 1802 error for an unauthorized device. Researching that further led to understand that Lenovo uses a whitelist - another punishment. I am now ready to return this laptop as well unless I can make some progress before traveling again. I would not be surprised if a class-action lawsuit were brought against Lenovo and any other manufacturers restricting individuals from making use of their own legitimately purchased hardware, especially when false or incomplete information is pushed by the company. If anyone knows where to obtain either LTE card, I would appreciate it.

A:X1C6/T480s WWAN difficulties

Looks like the Fibocom is available on the Lenovo Encompass site based on the part number you posted.

I have X1C5 with INTEL SSDPEKKF256G7L 256GB running linux. I am not sure if it matters, but I have FAT32 ESP and root Ext4 partition encrypted with LVM on LUKS. My current firmware version is 118P. I'd like to install latest SSD firmware via nvme-cli as described here. I downloaded fwnv28 (but also tried fwnv16) zip archive, used nvme fw-download pointing to the NVME_End2End_Lenovo_256_dvt_OPAL_Encrypt_and_Signature.bin binary with successful result (Firmware download success). However I cannot commit (does not work with --action 1 or 2); it fails with The firmware image specified for activation is invalid and not loaded by the controller (107).Any idea why? Any recommendation? Many thanks.

I have an intel DH61WW mobo, 8 GB DDR3 RAM, 8.1
It shipped able to handle up to i7 3rd Gen processors only. It can be updated to accept 3rd Gen which is what I have.
I seem to be in a loop while upgrading from a Pentium G840 to an i3770 K on this Intel DH61WW motherboard.
the Problem: It seems that I need version 8.x of Intel Management Firmware and I can't get to update past version 7.1.52.1176
According to this page, I need version 8.x to continue for updates to use Windows 8 & 8.1

So far, I have had the bios version update to
BEH 6110H.86A.0048.2012.1105.1520
I had the i7 installed but it acted confused. So I reinstalled the Pentium and the computer works but I still can't get the Intel Management Firmware to update.
According to this page I am ready for 3rd Gen i7 but not unless Intel Management Firmware gets updated first

I just recently updated my firmware on my linksys router WRT54G with the new version of linksys firm ware and now my router does not work. I can not access the GUI under the ip address 192.168.1.1. I 've tried to reboot the router using the 30/30 method that is suggested by Linksys, but I still can not access the routers GUI. Please advise if there is another method to set back the routers firmware.
 

A:Update firmware on Linksys router WRT54G version 2

Try 192.168.1.0.

I don't believe that the router saves any copy of the old firmware to set back to.

I'd recommend the DD-WRT firmware.

Was it the wrong firmware? Was it for your chipset version? Was the firmware for G, or GS, or other?

Hi, since a couple of weeks, system update prompts me to update my NVMe disk firmware. It downloads and runs Lenovo Storage Device Firmware Update Utility, but it always fails with the same error: Update Failed: Firmware update FAILED! RC=0x1 Stopped by a device reason.  This happens to me with the last version of the firmware update toot (FWNV29), but also has happened to me with previous versions. Also, downloading FWNV29 and running it independently from system update leads to the same error. Can someone help? Thanks. The log from fwwinsd.exe (fwwinsd.log) shows the following:[2019/03/27 07:47:09]: CFWWinDlg::OnInitDialog - IN
