[X230] Wifi led is not working

Q: [X230] Wifi led is not working

Hi there, I've just purchased a X230 from a friend. I had not noticed the moment I took it, but the wifi LED is not working on my laptop.The wifi is working well but not the led. My X230 is working under Debian/GNU Linux, but it does not work with Windows too. I have tried to install a WWAN module from a X220 and got the Unauthorized network card error. Maybe something went wrong at that moment I don't know. I have just updated the BIOS to the 2.62 version but no change. Any idea ?

Preferred Solution: [X230] Wifi led is not working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: [X230] Wifi led is not working

Please notice that x230's wireless network status LED indicator is combined to one which is different from older ThinkPads. There's only one indicator looks like a WIFI icon for all wireless communications - WLAN/WWAN/Bluetooth/WiMAX, which means any one of them is on, the indicator is on, and all of them are shutdown, the indicator becomes off. So, if you are familiar with older ThinkPads, you may be confused.

Hi, I have an X230 running windows 10 64 bit. I have a problem where the wifi stops working randomly and the only solution seems to be restarting the computer. I have seen many similar forum posts regarding various lenovo models and I have tried the suggested solutions including updating the driver and turning off the power managment's ability to shut off the wifi module. None of them have seemed to work. It appears that there are newer drivers available but windows insists that it has the newest and best driver and even if I uninstall and delete the older drivers, windows defaults back to them.I switched out the wifi module with a newer, supposedly oem module which is on the lenovo whitelist for this model (intel ultimate-n 6300agn) and I have the same behaviour. Thanks

I had problems with the old wifi card on my x230 so I decided to change it. The new model is a Intel Centrino N 6205, white-listed in the BIOS and compatible with the system. I did follow all the steps as described in the hardware maintenance manual, reassembled the whole thing and when I tried to start it again, nothing happened. The power light briefly flashes but that's it. I tried reinstalling the old card (no effect), pressing the power button for 30 seconds and unplugging the CMOS battery (no effect). What is wrong here?

As an example of such issue and troubleshooting:https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/Lenovo-X220-Conexant-20672-SmartAudio-NO-SOUN...Also, try to reset BIOS/EC, it'll remove electric voltage from the laptop parts, chips: unplug the battery and charger, press the power button and hold it during 20...30 seconds. Then enter BIOS Setup, load default settings and change the ones you need.

So the past couple of days I have noticed that the touch screen on my laptop hasn't been working like it use to. I'll be writing notes or homework in tablet mode or I'll be swiping in normal mode and about half of my writing, taps or swipes won't be recognized. It's really frustrating especially since it causes me to miss some notes in class. I have tried restarting it and that hasn't helped. I did factory reset it a few weeks ago, but I made sure to fix all my settings and calibrate everything after I did that. The touch screen was also working perfectly fine just last week. It just started happening after booting up one day. Does anyone know what I could do to fix this? I would send it in, but my warranty expired a few months ago.

Hi,I am suspecting a hardware failure, but wanted to check the forums first anyway.I have an X230 Tablet running Windows 8.1 Update. Fingerprint software 6.0. Was working fine (i.e. swipe to power on and log on to Windows and the Lenovo Password Mgr) until this morning. No more green light on the sensor, no function. Windows says that the fingerprint sensor is not available.It was still showing up in Device Manager, I uninstalled it as part of some troubleshooting and it's not being detected anymore now.Any ideas other than hardware?Thanks,SA.

A:X230 Tablet fingerprint reader stopped working

It sounds like hardware failure but try one more thing:
 
Reboot into BIOS setup (by pressing F1 at the ThinkPad logo screen).
Go to the security -> fingerprint menu.
There's an option about clearing the fingerprint sensor storage (or something like that).
What happens?

Hi everyoneI'm in a bit of a pickle. My old keyboard on my x230 (running win10 pro) was utterly worn out so I decided to replace it which is easy enough. However now the mouse buttons for the trackpoint are not working. The trackpad and the trackpoint itself along with the rest of the board work "flawlessly" but not the three buttons for the trackpoint. I'v tried removing and reinstalling the Synaptic drivers, both the newest version and an older one recomended on a different forum. I have triple double checked the board connection is firmly attached and that all the settings in both BIOS and the synaptic panel are set as normal but still no luck. Any help or advice to solve this would be greatly appriciated.

I'm having a problem that's been on and off with my.wifi for a while. I have a Yoga 2 Pro and the WiFi card seems to disappear completely and I can't get it back without removing all the batteries and leaving it a while. It's not like it needs a driver update, it totally disappears as if it's not even installed and won't show up in any OS or even under the "rfkill list command". It appears to be completely failing. Thing is I've swapped it out and it seems to be some part of the operation that mounts it that isn't working. I notice that it installs into the power board and not the motherboard. Would swapping this fix it? Does anyone have any ideas?

This is my first time posting so i hope its in the right place. Here it goes:

I have just replaced my WiFi card from (BCM943228HMB) to BCM94352HMB. Before replacing my WiFi card i done the following:

1. Made computer boot in safe mode with networking.

After that i replaced the card, then booted into windows 10 (safe mode with networking) and checked device manager. Everything was OK (See attached picture). I then tried to turn on WiFi, but it does not turn on. Any help is appreciated.

Hahaahahaha don't look at the other tab

A:WiFi not working after replacing WiFi card [BCM94352HMB]

Why are you booting into safe mode? I would connect a network cable to the wired network port, if possible for you. In regular windows, not safe mode, right click on the 802.11ac network controller and uninstall. Right click on the top device manager entry for the computer itself and select scan for new hardware.

Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN
A few days ago my internet suddenly stopped working. I plugged in the ethernet cord and everything worked fine. Checking the properties in the device manager showed the device was working properly, I also tried resetting it to make sure it was enabled but it did not work.

Upon troubleshooting, the "Windows Network Diagnostic" said the problems was that the Wireless adapter was not turned on. Using the switch on the front of the laptop as well as the function keys does nothing. Usually a graphic pops up showing if the WiFi is on or off, changinging transparent to show the WiFi is disabled. Now when I turn the switch on it always appears transparent, effectively going from off to off

So I know the computer reads both the function keys and the switch on the front but both methods never actually turns the adapter on. I just finished a system restore and nothing has changed

Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.
 

A:Wifi not working on ASUS laptop, LAN working fine

Maybe the switch or adapter is defective. Some other ideas ...

Do you have an ASUS utility to also turn the wireless on/off? (I have an HP utility on one of my laptops that will individually control the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth if the physical switch is on.)

In Device Manager right click on the adapter - Properties - Advanced tab. Sometimes there is a Property in there that allows turning the adapter on/off.

If the card is easily accessible through a cover on the laptop's bottom remove and carefully and firmly replace the card several times to fix any potential looseness or corrosion problems.

It seems strange to me that my smartphone can connect to internet, even play netflix, but my PC can't.

A:WIFI not working

My first thing would be to check Device Manager to make sure it has drivers loaded for all your hardware. I am betting you are correct in that you didn't install a driver for your Wifi card. Windows XP isn't going to have a native driver for it in the install.

You can check HP's support site to see if they have a driver for XP.

I was watching Stargate SG-1 on Hulu when the internet just cut out. A screen popped up and said, "We're sorry, but we cannot stream your video at this time. Please try again later." Soon after, I realized my WiFi was out. Not only was it not connecting, but it wasn't even seeing the network; my phone and other devices see and connect fine.

I tried disabling and reenabling my network card: didn't work.
Device manager says it is working fine, driver is up to date.
Restarted my computer: didn't work.
I ran the troubleshoot: no problems found.
Ran malware, spyware, and virus scans: just a few cookies and other small stuff, didn't fix the WiFi.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I have Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN wireless network card.

A:WIFI not working

Can it see any other networks?

Try uninstalling the drivers, and installing a fresh copy.

Could you have accidentally turned off the card? Look on the side of your laptop for a switch.

Just got a Dell Mini 1010, Win. XP at a flea market, looks great and everything is working, except the WiFi, I set up my password and it showed all was well, shows a strong signal, but when I try to get a program, like Google, it says no connection, I know there is a Wi-Fi switch on it but cannot find it, tried hitting F2 after I found out this was supposed to set the WI-Fi, still no signal, even when it says strong signal. Help!

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

Please Download and run this Xirrus WiFi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework.
To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here. For Vista and Windows 7, 8 you can use the Windows Snipping Tool

I usually work from home and my company's VPN connection goes well when I use a direct LAN connection. When I connect to WiFi and then try accessing the VPN, the connection does go through however I lose internet acces i.e. I am not able access anything on the internet. My outlook gets disconnected as well.

I tried searching the internet for solutions and mostly all of them asked to disable default gateway on remote network. Just FYI - this is already disabled and I am still having issues.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Best,
Ashher

So it's kinda of a weird issue but I promise you it's true. I have a WIFI connection and can happily get onto websites such as this one, Youtube and all the rest on my browser although in trying to solve this I found out I can't ping anything (I have windows 8, I just used cmd 'ping 4.2.2.2' and 'ping www.yahoo.com'. It says "request timed out." I also cannot connect to servers for example 'Steam' (Which you probably will have heard of). It always launches in offline mode meaning it can't connect to the steam servers(and no, the problem does not lie within steam. None of my games can connect to servers) Also, I share this WIFI and the person sharing it with me has the same problem. Any ideas ?

Heres a copy of my internets recent event logs:

A:WIFI not working, please help!

Can you connect directly to your router using an Ethernet cable and see if the problem persists?

Also, see if when you connect directly to your modem using an Ethernet cable if the problem persists.
