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 need some assistance in adding LTE/WWAN options to a P52 laptop that wasn't ordered as 'WWAN Ready' The laptop has a SIM Card slot but no M.2 WWAN Module or WWAN Antennas connected to it. I have been back and forth with Lenovo many times and they say it's not possible to upgrade this unit as it wasn't purchased originally as WWAN Ready.. which I think means the laptop would be installed with an M.2 WWAN Module and the WWAN antenna I am able to find the M.2 WWAN Module which is compatible however not finding any WWAN antenna. Lenovo said they don't stock them for this Laptop. Lenovo ThinkPad Fibocom L850-GL CAT9 WWAN - wireless cellular modem - 4G LT - PART # 4XC0R38452 Does anyone have any experience with these? Thanks

Hello mate, A WWAN modem uses the same network as mobile phone to connect which is totally different than WiFi network.I'm pretty sure you can't connect WiFi network using the WWAN antenna.

Hey guys, I've recently purchased a 6th generation Thinkpad X1 Carbon. At the time of my purchase it was only avaliable without WWAN.However I can now see that Lenovo il selling them with built-in WWAN too. I've opened up my laptop and I can see there is a sim-card reader installed, as well as the sim slot on the back. Also there is a free slot where the WWAN card can go. I can see there are no LTE antennas installed however.See picture: https://imgur.com/o5RU96U I have tried getting in touch with the local Lenovo sales phone number but I am always put on hold and the call gets dropped after 15 minutes of waiting each time.I have also tried opening a support ticket regarding this, asking for the part number on the modem and the antenna. However, I was only provided with the part number for the antenna. Do you guys know of any documentation on how I should go ahead for installing the antenna? As far as I understand the antenna is PN 01YR426 . What LTE modems are supported on this machine? From the specs sheet  I can see that only the Intel XMM 7360 (Fibocom L850-GL), M.2 card is listed as OEM. Where can I purchase this L850-GL module? I have tried looking various places but it doesen't seem to be avaliable for sale anywhere?! Could I maybe use a  Sierra wireless AirPrime EM7455, or something else, instead?

My experience with the upgrade. First I tried to get smart and get a generic EM7455, error 1802 and shutdown occured, Lenovo whitelists hardware and illegal BIOS mods are not my cuppa Joe. Then I tried to get the EM7455 from IBM Lenovo parts, delays until June, canceled. Ordered from HPP on Amazon, Lenovo original. Main antenna pin on card broke off into the antenna connector, after the stress of two connects, no luck extracting, snapped it off and then soldered the cable into the EM7455 board. It was a dumb MISTAKE, because the cable is actually coaxial. Ordered Lenovo 1AW308 antenna (LAN and WWAN) and took the T460 apart. Carved up the micro-SIM tray (microsurgery with a blade) to accept the SIM card from AT&T. Make four cuts into the LCD bezel trim to access the screws because I was too ;lazy to pry it off, it all works now. Tips: To avoid pin amputation (which will get stuck in antenna connector) lift the WWAN card off the board avoiding contact with the connectors, wear a x10 bino magnifier preferable with a light, and bend the cables to lay flush with board before snappin in using nail, make sure you feel the slight pop when the connectors align before applying pressure. Oh and make sure you are well rested with the kids and wife out of the house Half an hour of work initially, then a five hour session to fix the booboo. Parts for the unfortunate antenna amputees, order here:IBM Lenovo Parts01AW308 Antenna (has both WiFi and WWAN, ...

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...

Hi all

Looking for some information. I'm replacing 3 pc's in the business I work for. We use custom software and have to remain on Windows xp to avoid issues with the database hooking correctly. We have used mostly Dell pc's to run our software, and from time to time need to reinstall Windows as needed. With the Dell systems, I wipe the partition and insert a disk, reinstall, add drivers plus our software, then I'm done. I'm considering building 3 new pc's maybe around the i5 level for workstations. I was curious if there was a way to build in the Windows XP serial number like Dell and other vendors do. Is this a specific type of main board ? A function in the bios ? I would love to be able to duplicate this, if it's possible.

Thank you

A:Windows install / vendor built vs homebrew / built in serial

You can not use the same serial number for a different computer. Its illegal. You'll need to buy a copy of Windows XP for each computer or buy a Set copy that will work on 3 different computers.

I'd like to buy a replacement, but I can't find an appropriate SKU or product number. On most Lenovo laptops, that's part of the antenna.

Hi;

Perhaps it would be best to improve the antenna on the PC, not the router, since I don't really want to broadcast my WIFI signal outside of the house (I am using standard 128 bit encryption).

Perhaps a directional antenna is what I need.

Can anyone suggest one?

What kind of construction is your house? How good is the signal strength of the TV stations you are trying to receive. Are there any buildings in the line of sight between you and the TV transmitting towers? I live in a mobile home and, because of the aluminum siding, aluminum blinds, and buildings and trees in the area, there is no way I can get a decent TV signal inside the house, no matter what kind of antenna is used inside; a roof mounted antenna is a must. I have to open the blinds to a window and stand by it just to get one or two bars on my cell phone.

I have a few general questions about wireless router antennas. I currently have a Linksys wireless G router and also a Hawking Tech router.

I'm in a faily small apartment and I can get a "strong" signal anywhere in it, but it tends to not always be stable. My intuition says that this is probably because of the wireless card in my computer (I have either a Linksys PCMCIA card or an internal Intel a/b/g card depending on the computer), but I wanted to ask about getting a better antenna for the router.

First of all, will this do anything to enhance stability or will it only extend the range? Secondly, does it matter who I buy the antenna from (brand names, etc) or are they all universal?

If you have any experience with such things, I would appreciate the input. TIA.

They appear to have the standard reverse-SMA connector, so I suspect all of them are compatible. If you have a point-to-point situation, the directional antenna with the highest gain is the best choice. It doesn't matter what the style is, it's the gain that determines the amount of improvement in signal strength.

i dont need that kind of range, maybe 4 miles would be nice, but would this antenna actually work? i only have a laptop, so what else do i need to buy to connect to this antenna, a router or an access point? i'm on the edge of town and would like to connect to a free signal that is about 4 miles away...i have high ground, so i should have line of sight to the signla, except for a few trees, - just wondering if this antenna is a good way to get internet access...the cost is
not a big deal, just want to make sure it would actually work...
 

A:would this antenna work?

No chance. That is hopelessly optimistic advertising! The trees are the killer here, I'd be amazed if you were able to get a signal. FWIW, there are plenty of external directional antennas with at least as good a gain for less money.

Here's a 14dB one for $119 for instance: http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?In...etworking-_-WirelessAccessories-_-HAO14SDP-DT

Truthfully, I wouldn't invest a lot of money in this endeavor, because I really think 3-4 miles with trees is pretty unrealistic for 802.11. LOS I might have a different opinion.

I've got a d-lnk dsl - g604t router. I've had an etheret over mains adaptor twice, but both of them stopped working within a month for no reason so now i'm on wireless (PCI 802.11g). The signal is pretty weak most of the time and sometimes, like today, the network hasn't been detected at all (over 5+ hours). I was thinking of using a high-gain antenna to help this but i dont know if any are compatible with my router. It uses a sma connection, but all the antenna's i've found have been lynksis which i'm not sure will work http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1115416829339&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=2933939789B63 that's an example.

Does anyone know if there's an antenna that will work for me or could you maybe offer a suggestion to what could be wrong with the ethernet over mains connection.
here's what it was like before, but now pc2 is on wireless.

 

A:hi-gain antenna

Almost all of the antennas have an SMA connection. I have an SMC, D-Link, and Hawking hi-gain antenna, all of them have the same connector.

There is an antenna on the back of my Dell T3500 CPU that has broken.  Is it necessary and/or helpful and, if so, where do I get a replacement since Googling it was unsuccessful?

Probably for the network card. If everything works, don't bother replacing it. Or just get another network card. www.dell.com/.../networking

Hi guys,

Please anyone has info on the linksys omni-directional antenna HGA9N? To what devices can it be connected? Its outdoor range/bitrate? Is it reliable? Can it support large number of users/traffic? If anyone has configured or installed one before please i would welcome his comments on the product. Info on other types of omni-directional antennas would be really helpful.

Thanks
 

A:omni-directional antenna

Any antenna will have the full bandwidth of the wireless connection, it's only purpose is to more efficiently use the power available, as well as provide more signal strength for incoming signals. It can be connected to any router or wireless card that has a reverse SMA connector, which is the standard for removable antennas. A hi-gain antenna should be very reliable, since there are no active components. As long as you don't abuse the cable, it'll probably work forever.
