x230 won't start after changing wifi card

Q: x230 won't start after changing wifi card

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?

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.

Hi all, I just started an attempt to (officially)  upgrade the WiFi card in my Z50-75. When I bought the unit, it had the Qualcomm Atheros AR956x B/G/N card installed, I will now try to replace it with a Broadcom BCM43162-AC card. I found a seller on Aliexpress who is selling this Broadcom card with the original Lenovo Partnumber 20-200573, which is also indicated in the Z50-series Service manual. Today I ordered the part, I will let you know if the part was genuine and has the proper Lenovo ID in its firmware.... ;-) http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Broadcom-BCM43162-1x1ac-BT4-0-M-2-Combo-card-for-lenovo-E455-FRU-04X6... For sure it will take some time for shipping to Spain, when it arrives I will keep you posted. Un saludo from Spain, Satbeginner

Hi all, IT WORKS with my Win8.1 machine! No issues with BIOS, just old card out, new card in. This card has drivers here: http://support.lenovo.com/services/ie/en/productdownload/getdownloadslister/dd7b5b9c-b84d-4ca7-b487-... For now it uses both 2.4GHz and 5GHz, but since my router is N-only (for now)  it does not use the AC-speeds yet.I ordered an ASUS AC-router. The card is now for sale here:  http://es.aliexpress.com/item/Broadcom-BCM43162-1x1ac-BT4-0-M-2-Combo-card-for-lenovo-E455-FRU-04X60... Check for the Lenovo PN 20-200573 and the FRU number 04x6019.It is shown as a BCM802.11ac Network Adapter, the BT is shown as BCM2035. Succes!! Un saludo from Spain, Satbeginner

I am attempting to upgrade my current wifi card (Atheros AR956x)  with an intel 802.11ac (20200418).  When I installed this card I got the unauthorized wifi card notice.  I was under the impression that this card was a whitelisted card and would work.  Any suggestions?

Hello,

I am an owner of the Lenovo y510p laptop. It is notorious for having a internet connectivity problems with its intel n 2230 wireless card. In my case the internet connection would drop every minute at its worst and every 6 hours at its best. I have looked for solutions to this issue and as possible result I am in the current predicament. Here are the most likely culprits:

1) I have installed Wireless_17.0.5_De164 from https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...?DwnldID=23994
2) I have uninstalled Intel Management Engine Interface from the Device Manager as suggested in this forum https://communities.intel.com/thread...t=225&tstart=0

At this point I have received BSOD, driver_corrupted_expool. I rebooted the computer and it was working fine and and then when I tried further changing options in my wifi card I would get BSOD, but then the system would not boot without getting BSOD. I panicked, and have re-installed windows while keeping all the files. Following the re-installation of windows the BSOD problem still occurs and is consistently occurring when I try changing Advanced settings of my wifi card from the Device Manager window. Furthermore, I have got BSOD on other occasions 1) Freshly after rebooting when I opened Firefox. 2) While making a call on skype. I have received several errors including bad_pool_header.

Hope that helps, I have attached my diagnostics.

Thanks so much in advance,
dobryjr

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

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 ?

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.

the computer was stuck at launching windows screen or just restared.
I have decided to reinstall it. Installation is fine but when it should get me first time into desktop and complete installation procedures it just goes black screen and restart / gets stuck at launching windows screen or flashes BSOD for second
have tried safe mode which is not working because OS is not installed properly and also not to restart when something goes wrong so i can see what does BSOD says. in that instance it just restarts anyways . Also have tried loading fail-safe defaults on bios.
also i hope i have put it in the right thread :S

I have a Lenovo x230 laptop with an i7 processor that starts the second time. This means that when you first turn on, there is a black screen. The restart must be forced and then normally turns on. I tried to use an external screen, tricks with disconnecting the battery and pressing the switch, CMOS battery, RAM memory replacement - nothing did not succeed. On this motherboard, the service replaced the BIOS chips due to failure in the upgrade. They said that the computer would not work anyway. The computer, however, works, but after the second launch - which is annoying. I have updated the BIOS on my own, which did not solve the problem. Once the computer starts, it works very steadily and without problems. I have not found a similar case anywhere on the internet.

Hello forum people,

I have the following problem on my Toshiba Satellite R850 running Win7 64bit: I decided to change the wireless adapter so I can connect to the 5GHz wifi network my router provides which wasnt possible on the Atheros wireless adapter it came with. I changed it to a Intel Wireless AC 3160- the physical change went quick and without problems and while the adapter is basically working now the problem I'm facing now is that the F8-hotkey function to de-/activate the Wifi and Bluetooth is no longer working. When I press the hotkey button all the different hotkey combinations show up on the upper part of the screen, but now there's only F1-F7 and F9, F8 just went missing. Does anyone have any idea how to get it back?

Thanks in advance and take care

Hello everyone !- sorry but the english is no my first lang -I installed (replace) a Intel Advanced-N WiMAX 6250 in my laptop X230 running under Windows 10, but the system no recognise the card.I ve allready tried :-intall the card driver-a BIOS update-a motherboard diagnostic (to check if any problem in the Pci ports or in the motherboard itself)-a thinkvantage system update-checking on BIOS if the network cards appears (actually says disable, and no way to "enable it")-check if the card (hardware) was propely connected into the PCI port. it seems to me that the PCIe  is no working but why it could happens? I used to think that my laptop  had no wireless adapter so i bought one, when I installed it I realised that it was one (a native Realtek) ! i ve put it anyway but nothing changed.. ps . i bought this laptop almost new and without warranty (i guess). any idea ?cheers !Memo

A:my x230 cannot recognise the wireless card adapter...

Hello, memodialYou wrote:> checking on BIOS if the network cards appears (actually says disable, and no way to "enable it")This is a key feature to troubleshoot IMHO.What settings do you mean? WirelessLAN Access or WiMAX Access? WiMAX features don't influence to the WLAN (WiFi) ones, they utilize the different interfaces for data, but the card might be controlled (power on/off) via the single bus lane #20 (I'm not sure though).To enable BIOS Settings changes check out the LockBIOS Setting.Make sure wireless radios switch is enabled (on the laptop onboard).Do you see unknown devices in the Device Manager? For devices w/out drivers installed they might be in the Other Devices category. There might be a problem with drivers as Intel doesn't provide them for this card and win10. What drivers did you install?

Hi, I have a ThinkPad X230, which originally had Windows 7 installed on it.  When I accepted the upgrade to Windows 10, everything worked fine apart from one thing:  the built-in SD Card reader. When I insert an SD card into the reader, the computer eventually recognizes it as a SD card, but when I click on it I get the following message: "D:\ is not accessible.  A device attached to the system is not functioning." I have tried all kinds of things to get it to work, based on various other posts on this forum.  For example installing new drivers from Lenovo website, installing them in Compatibility Mode etc.  But none of these have fixed the issue.  If I right-click on the SD Card icon for my D: drive, and select Properties, it doesn't detect any used space or any free space. If I open Device Manager when there is a SD card inserted, I see "Ricoh SD Disk Device" under the section entitled "Disk Drives", and I see "Ricoh PCIe SD/MMC Host Controller" under the section entitled "Memory technology devices".  I also see " D:\" under the section entitled "Portable Devices". I updated my laptop's BIOS not long ago.  I have BIOS version 2.65. I have an mSATA card (about 120GB) for Windows OS and applications, and a separate 500GB traditional hard drive for my Data.  I have had this mSATA / HDD configuration since the very beginning. Does anybody have any idea what I need to do to fix this problem...

Have just bought an express card for my X230. When I put it in the express card slot of my X230, It fell a bit unsmooth and harsh. As I remember the same express card slot on my old HP was smoother and had an actuation point where you have to push harder to hear a click sound and push again to release the card then take it out of the slot, I found the express card slot on my X230 very weird. There is no said actuation point or any click sound, the card just slid in the slot until it reached the connector (the end of the slot). This process on the X230 was very rough that i even had to push the card very hard for it to reach the connector. But still, there was no click sound or anything indicating the card had been properly installed. Here are several images to let you see the situation clearly:  Notice how deep the the card sits in the slot. A better view. I have to sorry for the crappy quality of the photos since they were taken from my cheap phone.

This is the exact opposite of most WiFi issues. I have two guest networks set up on my wireless router (Asus RT-68U), one for each of my daughters. I change the password daily in order to make them earn the password with chores after school. My older daughter's T450 refuses to stop connecting to the WiFi, even persisting through reboots. MAC address filtering fails, as does turning off internet access to her MAC/IP combination. After changing the password or enabling one of the more strict rules, eventually, randomly, her laptop will finally decide to stop accessing her WiFi connection. I am fairly certain it is something with the Lenovo as I have two other laptops, one Asus and one HP that both respond as I would expect to a WiFi password change. Any ideas as to why this happens with the Lenovo?

Hello there,  Few days ago,  i bought Lenovo ThinkPad x230!  ( So far i love it! It's awesome !!!! ) After using it for few days i found out that you can get SIM card for it, and use mobile broadband on it. I loved that idea, so i went out and i got new SIM card for my laptop.  After inserting it i found out that my ThinkPad doesn't have WWAN Card installed! SO RIP !?   I googled and googled and googled....and i found list of WWAN Cards that are compatible with my Thinkpad List of WWAN Cards , and then i found a video Youtube Video in which i learned how to install WWAN Card in my Thinkpad!  Then i went to a website in my country that sells new/used PC parts... and i found this card " F5521 ", and i bought it.... ( Now on the card i bought, it says " F5521gw"...is that fine or ? ) Guess what happened? I installed it, i tried booting the laptop, and it showed me this : 1802: Unauthorized network card is plugged in - Power off and remove the miniPCI network card. (03f0/3a1d) . I powered off and removed it...and i turned on my laptop normally.... Now, what can i do, in order to use this card? ( I found a bunch of "Hacks" online, but i didn't want to risk anything...so that is why i am asking here... i will post pictures of the WWAN card....if that will help... ) Please help me!

Welcome to the CommunityIndeed, F5521 is one of the wwan modems that x230 supports. But the specific modem you have is for HP systems, not Lenovo ones. So, x230 doesn't work with this modem with error you've faced. Replace it by x230' supported modem with Lenovo p/n (FRU).

Hello,

I have recently bought a new pci wifi lan card (Ralink rt61 turbo) and have plugged in and installed drivers. Initially the drivers the company I bought it from told me to install didn't work, but after some googling found the correct drivers and downloaded from Ralinks website. However these didn't work either.

When using the Ralink wireless utility it says that the card is disconnected, however in device manage it is both connect and the correct drivers installed and everything is perfectly fine.

I ignored the wireless utility and hoped that windows 7 would still be able to use the wireless card as past experiences have shown to be true. This case however I get nothing. Windows 7 says that the wireless card is experiencing problems, it doesn't show any of the routers that should be shown.

I have been looking around a lot and there have been several drivers that should have worked and they haven't.

I would have thought that the antenna is broken or the card doesn't work however when I use it with ubuntu instead of windows 7 it works perfectly fine without any hassle, so the card is definitely working.

Any advice that anyone can give on how to resolve this would be very welcome.

Thanks

Hey guys,

So, what i'm trying to do is create a wifi hotspot using my computer. In other words, turning my computer into a router. I'm wanting to do this so i can use my ipod at home instead of only when i'm around other wifi hotspots.

My computer is running off of a wired router, so that i can play online on my PS3 as well. I was told wifi doesn't work well with Ps3's normally so i just bought a wired router. So, the mainline internet cord is plugged into a wired router and then another line runs into my computer.

For some reason, after i make an adhoc connection, the computer is not sending the required information to the iPod so that it connects to the internet.

I've tried entering in the information into the Static tab in my ipod as well, and still only get Local Connection instead of Local and Internet.

This is what my connection looks like through the router using ipconfig /all:

A:Creating Wifi hotspot with built-in computer wifi card.

Hi Cromsy,

Welcome to Vista Forums!

Unfortunately, it isn't as simple as that. You are connected to the router fine with your computer, but that tells us nothing about the ipod because wireless is off (but that's not the whole story either - you need something extra to do what you want). The following article should tell you what you need and how to do it: How to Connect iPod Touch to Windows 7 Ad-hoc Wireless Network. Although it says Windows 7, there are procedures for Vista as well (and the software will work with Vista).

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

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.

how do you change your ip when your connected to a wifi connection??
 

A:changing your up on wifi

If you are talking about the private LAN IP address between the computer and wireless router, it would depend on how the router is configured to assign IP addresses.

If you are talking about the public Internet IP address, that would depend on how the service provider assigns IP addresses.

We may be able to better help you if you explain what you are trying to accomplish by changing the address.

I have an X230 i5 processor with a 1 TB SSD and I recently picked up a X230 with a i7 processor and a much smaller hard disk.  Can I just swap my big SSD into the new X230 (moving that version of Windows 7 Pro) and then install the smaller hard disk (with its version of Windows 7 Pro) into the i5 machine. (Will be swapping the memory so the i7 has the 16 GB and the i5 has 8 GB).  I know that if they were completely different computers this would not work, but since both are X230 will it work?  I'd rather not have to restall all the programs if I can avoid it!

hey everyone, im trying to change the name of my dads wifi, right now it says "linksys" and i dont mess around with the router or the internet itself, so i dont know how to change the name (i want to make it my families last name or something)
does anyone know how to do this? i would really like any info possible, thank you =)

A:changing name of my wifi internet

Go to your router config page, it should be one of these:

192.168.1.1
192.168.2.1
192.168.1.100

Username and Pass should be admin:admin

And you should see the option to change the name. I don't have access to a linksys router right now, so I can't give you step by step instructions, sorry.

After doing a lot of searching and looking at several complicated ways to change the password on my win 8 to access my home WiFi, all I had to do was to right click on the SSID and tell the computer to forget it. This cleared out the old password and it asks for the new one. Turns out that what seemed to be very difficult was too easy.

Recently was advised to change my wifi password. Although I can handle myself when using my browser, I do have trouble when dealing with networking and wifi. So, my question is: Do I have to just change the PW on windows 10 (if so, how,) or is there more to it...if so, what do I have to do? Thanks.

The Windows password and your WiFi password are different. To change your WiFi password, you need to login to your router. In most cases, you can access your router by entering 192.168.1.1 in your browser. That should bring up your router interface. You can change the password using the router interface.

Hi all,

I looked online and I'm still a bit confused whether I should get dual or single band wifi for a laptop that I would like to purchase. Can someone explain to offer a suggestion as to which one is best?

Thank you in advance.
 

A:dual band wifi card vs single band wifi card

I should get dual or single band wifi for a laptop that I would like to purchaseClick to expand...

do you mean a router
or as part of the laptop spec ?

what router do you have and does it work in dual band simultaneously

the advantage of the 5ghz signal is if you are in a crowded 2.4ghz environment then 5ghz helps avoid interference - also the coverage is wider - although the 5ghz router i have linksys - does not seem to be

if your current router only works in 2.4ghz , then no advantage in the short term

some routers are advertised as dual band - but you have to choose between 2.4 or 5 ghz and so ALL devices will need to support 5ghz

I changed my Wifi password today and now I can't connect to the same wireless network. The notebook is stuck on "checking network requirements". It's not giving me a field to enter my wifi password. I also cannot forget the network as it's not showing up in known networks. I uninstalled the wireless driver and installed it again.  The notebook finds the wireless network but it's stuck on "checking network requirements", it's not letting me enter the new password. I also tried to delete the profile from CMD but it didn't work. What can I do?
