Thinkpad T480s Fibocom L830-EB and Windows 10 build 1803

Q: Thinkpad T480s Fibocom L830-EB and Windows 10 build 1803

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?

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.)

Hello,one of our x280 has already the Windows Build 1809. The Fibocom L830-EB is not really working. The Simcard is detected and also showing how good / bad the connection would be. But if you try to connect, it will only show "setting up.. preparing". I was reading, that the same problem also happend in the last builds and we have to wait for a firmware / driver update. Fibocom is not offering any (!) drivers to download. So it looks like we have to wait for Lenovo..

Hello Community.New user here. We are experiencing problems with the new L series with WWAN (Fibocom L830-EB) when it connects to Cicso AnyConnect.I've spent many hours twisting my head to figure out what is wrong. I have attached some pingtest so you can see what happens.I have two troubleshooting scenarios. {L580 running Windows 10 Pro 1709Microsoft approved driver 10.0.16299.98Fibocom Sensor driver 3.17134.0.6 L580 running Windows 10 Pro 1803Microsoft approved driver 10.0.17134.1Fibocom Sensor driver 3.2.0.3} What I have tried:Installing Microsoft driver 10.0.16299.98 on the 1803 (rollback driver) didn't work. (Which I thought would have been a solution, since it works with VPN on 1709) Updating Firmware (L830-EB_FWUpdateTool_18300.1002.00.01.01.14_signed)Uinstalling Antivirus (Symantec)Install latest Fibocom driverInstall (anyconnect-win-4.6.03049-core-vpn-predeploy-k9) I am out of ideas at this point.  Regards, Mark

Not sure if there is an official solution but heres my issue: After upgrading to Windows 1803, my fingerprint reader just stopped working with Windows Hello. Tried troubleshooting with drivers and eventually did a hard reset which did address the issue...only temporarily. I already looked into other forum post regarding deleting and reinstalling the fingerprint drivers as well as the Intel SGX drivers as well but those didn't seem to solve the issue. Any insight on the issue would be great!

Guys,

Found the answer to what I was seeking! If you don't want things like Cortona to remember your searches, or your Microsoft Account activities, do the following:

1.) In the search box type "Privacy" (No quotes)
2.) In The General Settings go to Privacy Settings
3.) Go to Activity History, and there are a lot of things you can clear and uncheck about the information and searches on your computer. Very helpful!

Hi, I have just installed Windows 10 (Build 1803) and I have ran Leanovo Vantage on here to update all drivers and firmware, however for some reason I cannot increase (or decrease) the brightness of the laptop at all. I did some research into this and I saw this has been an issues before on some other models but I couldn't seem to find anything related to the P51. The screen is visable, however I would say it is currently fixed at around 40-50% brightness. Has anybody come across this before and is there anything I can try to do to fix this?  Regards, Jonathan.

My 2 month old T480s is really annoying to use as the lock screen locks the laptop after less than one minutes of not using the keyboard or mouse. The notebook has Windows 10 Pro and I cannot for example watch a video longer than 1 minutes as the laptop lock screen is activated and I have to enter the user PIN or use the facial recognition feature to login back and unlock the laptop. I have tried all the tricks I found online including editing the (GPedit) group policy administrative template personalization, disabling the screen lock screen using Regedit to change the registry settings, and changing windows 10 Power & Sleep settings. Are there any BIOS settings that can prevent the lock screen from activating in such a short time or to completely disable it? Thank you,Hamdy

Hi there,I have recently bought the Thinkpad T480s with the GeForce 150mx. The card was working, but when I tried to install CUDA, I had to uninstall the driver and install another one. Now I want to go back, but when I install the normal Lenovo 150mx driver, Windows states that "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)." Thus, only the integrated Intel graphics are shown in the task manager and any other programs. I also tried to install the 150mx driver from Nvidia's site, and the Lenovo System Update utility, which didn't solve the problem.I would be glad if anyone had another idea how to fix this problemCheers!

A new setting you can put in your system IF you are running 1803 (OS build 17134.48) is the "Ultimate Performance" plan. Open up powershell (as administrator) and type the command:

powercfg -duplicatescheme e9a42b02-d5df-448d-aa00-03f14749eb61

Go into settings, system, power and sleep, select "additional power settings" under "related settings" and you now should have "Ultimate Performance" as a selection. This will only work if running this version of windows. Type "winver" in the search box to check what version you are running, first. This is for "higher end PCs"

This is more of an intrigue than an issue but I'm still curious as to why this happens. Issue: When placing a T480s on top of another T480s both machines will be forced into sleep mode.  How to reproduce: Line up a T480s on top of another T480s (or T480) and the device will go into sleep mode. I've Stacked T480 units and this does not happen this seems to only affect the T480s line. (These test were preformed on the latest bios/driver revisions) What I think maybe happening is that the T480s when stacked are triggering the lid closed sensor of the other unit. Since this is not the case for the T480 units we have I think it may be because of the thickness of the s models. Is this something that will eventually be fixed via bios update? or is this just a flaw in the T480s design? Thanks for in advanced for your response!  

A:T480s is forced into sleep mode when in close proximity to T480/T480s

I've seen this happen in the past, it was due to how strong the magnets are that keep the lid shut.

Hey Guys,

I have a local account as a default on my machine. I disabled the Timeline feature, no problem. But, no matter what build 1803 has this "Pick Up Where You Left Off" as a part of Cortona/Search and it shows a list of Recent activity things you do on your computer. Even non-related Microsoft tasks. I have attached an image to illustrate. Is there any way to turn this off, and just use Cortona like the search in previous search builds?

Apparently, turning off timeline doesn't make a difference to Cortona.

Hello everybody! I hope all is well wherever you are!

I am having an issue with the latest, major windows 10 update.

When I originally tried to download the thing I lost WiFi connection very briefly. (I know school boy error using WiFi while updating)

Now when I try to update it stops at 80% and comes up with the message 'We cant install updates because other updates are in progress.' Before this it came up with ERROR 0xc1900107.

No other updates are running (as far as I can tell) I also ran system file checker which came back fine.

I finally downloaded the update assistant but it doesn't work that way either.

Any help would be really appreciated!
