Preferred Solution: my Thinkpad T540 running on windows 10 keeps disconnecting from wifi

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.)

Hello, I have this problem while Im traveling for work to our second base.There is only a Wi-Fi network that goes thru controller and AP. On first attempt I connect just as normal, but after 5 min. it disconnects me and it seems like the network dissapearedfor me. I have to restart the AP or my network adapter which is really annoying when it happens every few minutes. Also I noticed that something similar is going on on my home Wi-Fi, it doesnt disconnect me like in the first case, but it feels like it keeps reconnecting every few minutes (I have difficulties loading a video on youtube while on smartTV its not a problem or on any other device connected to the same network)I tried- uninstalling the driver and installing different one- reinstalling current driver- do this (https://support.lenovo.com/cz/cs/solutions/ht502846)- bunch of other stuff My spec- Lenovo ThinkPad L440- Windows 7 Pro SP1- Wireless driver - Intel(R) Wireless-N 7260 (HW ID PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_08B2&SUBSYS_C2628086&REV_6B) Thanks in advance Reiter

Hi Reiter,1. Have you tried installing Wi-Fi driver from Intel Website directly?2. Have you tried toggling between Power Plans? (Power Saver to High Performance)?3. Change Wi-Fi Adapter Settingsa. Go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network Connections, right-click Properties.b. Click Configure
c. Click Advanced tab- Roaming Aggressiveness: set as Lowest- Transmit Power: 100%

Hi guys,I have a laptop which is a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E431 model running on Window 10 Pro OS. It is a Core i3-3110M CPU @2.40GHz 8GB RAM 64-bit OS. My issue is :WLAN / WiFi keeps going ON and OFF every now and then. The WiFi once connected keeps connecting and disconnecting every minute and it sometimes take forever to reconnect back. I will need to right-click on the WiFi Symbol at the bottom right and click on 'Troubleshoot problems' to recover from this issue. Once recovered, it disconnects again. Some Observations :The issue could be because of the conflict between the Bluetooth drivers and the WiFi drivers. If Bluetooth is disabled then the WiFi works correctly. There will be no problems regarding the WiFi getting disconnected. These are the following details of the hardwares and their respective driver versions. Network : Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless -N 2230Driver Version : 15.18.0.1Driver Date : 30-04-2015  Bluetooth : Intel(R) Wireless Bluetooth(R)Driver Version : 18.1.1525.1445Driver Date : 18-06-2015 I have no idea why these two are causing this issue, but I really need to fix this. And it has been atleast a year since I bought this laptop and it has been showing this problem since 4 - 5 months back. Please let me know if there is a work around for this. If not atleast I hope the above information might help fixing the issue. If there is any additional information that is needed from me, please leave a m... Read more

I have a Thinkpad T540 from work, and a private Ideapad 510. I'm looking for a wall charger solution that can be used for any of these laptops, which I could keep in my bag, regardless of which laptop I take with me. Both use 20V power. The Thinkpad charger produces 4.5A (90W), I think that power source should work fine with the Ideapad that requires just 3.25A (65W). Is there a solution to convert the Thinkpad's rectangular plug (slim tip) to the the very small power plug used by the Ideapad 510 (round, 4mm outer, 1.7mm inner) ? Alternatively, is there any universal charger available, which offers both plugs? Thanks,Kai

I'm using Windows 7 Beta. My wifi is constantly disconnecting non-stop. I have to use the troubleshoot tool everytime and even now, it still disconnects non-stop. I replicated this problem with default drivers that came with W7 and also downloaded drivers from Intel's site.

I've tried various setups with my router (which have always worked fine in XP and Vista anyway).

I tried WPA / TKIP+AES
WPA2 / TKIP+AES (Auto)
WPA2 / AES

Wireless channel: auto
802.11 Mode: n, g b
Trans Rate: best/auto

I have wifi protection feature disabled and UNnP disabled. Channel width 20 (tried auto 20/40) too.

My router is on my desk, to the right with 3 antennas pointing different directions. My modem is under my desk, to the left on top of my cable box

So far, it seems if I connect to my neighbors unsecured router, I never get disconnected. This aggiates me because I have always used my same router and same 100% exact configuration. I know W7 is just beta, but hoping someone can enlighten me on a temp fix at least. I even tried official Intel drivers from their site too.

So in conclusion it appears to be likely a W7 bug with secured mode routers.

Specs:
D-Link DIR-655
Intel 5100AGN Wireless
Windows 7 Beta Build 7000

I recently purchased a new desktop computer which had windows 8 pre-installed. I was somewhat enjoying it (hating everything about the changes from windows 7) and then my wifi would disconnect every few minutes. I used windows update and installed all new updates (which takes a long time with random wifi disconnects) and it still had no help. I went to the website of the wifi driver and downloaded + installed the most recent drivers. The disconnects became slightly less frequent.
My computer is an Acer AME600-EB388.

I have googled around quite a bit trying to find a solution but none would work for me. I have checked the power settings and made sure they weren't set to shut off.
Please help me.

A:Windows 8 wifi randomly disconnecting

Have you tried using a different wireless channel? The 2.4ghz frequency can be very crowded in some areas which can cause frequent disconnects unless a clear channel is used.

The Xirrus WiFi inspector is good for scanning the wireless landscape in your area so as to make an informed choice on which channel to use.

If you can post a screen shot of the Xirrus read out here I can take a look at it.

Hey there, after being on the phone with Lenovo representatives in Germany for a couple of times with no succesful solution to my problem, I wondered whether someone in this forum might have an answer to my P50 problem. Model:Thinkpad P50 20EN0008. The problem:At the beginning of August, my P50 would not boot, no vitality signs at all. I removed the battery, tried to push the power button in various sequences ( 60 seconds long ; in alternating time steps, and so on) but nothing helped. So I decided to call Lenovo tech support who said that probably my mainboard needs to be swapped. Next day a Lenovo representative showed up with a new mainboard. However, before replacing the mainboard he checked all RAM sticks and figured out one was broken, being the reason for the dead P50. Thus, he removed the RAM stick and the machine started working again. The P50 continued working for 2 days but eventually showed the same symptoms. I called tech support again and after 2 weeks a new technician showed up, now replacing the whole mainboard. Then, the P50 worked for 2 days but eventually would not boot at all again. Being curious what might be the bug, I thought what both operations had in common and voila, after disconnecting the coin cell battery and the main battery for 3 minutes, the Laptop started again. So I called tech support again, now with the recommendation of updating my bios to the latest version. Having done this, my P50 still does not boot without removin... Read more

It looks like one of endless BIOS issues. What BIOS version to you have ? Try to disable Fast Startup in Windows which may be a temporary workaround. Considering the repair history I would return it. There are many basic functionality issues with P series Lenovo is not able to solve because they seem to already lost production competence of workstation machines. They are too focused on cheap consumer laptops and its resulting typical reliability.

Hello,  a year ago I bough Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 20CD0038MC with Windows 8.1 (64-bit) and also OneLink Pro Dock.  Because Yoga has't own Ethernet adapter I connected cable to OneLink Pro Dock. Unfortunatelly it disconnect cable (and switch to WiFI) many times during each day. Everytime it takes only second and than cable was normally connected, but this destroyed every work which depends on stable connection (e.g. streamed webinars). Sometimes disconnection occurs once per day, sometimes 10x per day.  So I bough also original Lenovo USB 3.0 Ethernet adapter and connect it directly to USB port on Yoga - the same problem.

I believe that Gobi card is a WWAN card, not the wifi card.  Have a look around Device Manager for a wifi card - maybe as an unknown device.
 
Also make sure the switch (on the left front?) is turned on

Okay, so I'm trying to get my son's DS to connect to the internet so that he can trade pokemon. I'm on Win XP, my usb wifi device is this Mayflash thing, and I have heard that other people have had issues with it (the driver download doesn't help). However, I did get mine to connect, someone on another forum linked to this article to report their success connecting their DS with it.

However, when I try to connect the DS to the network it disconnects. It's always about a minute into the connection, everything is going well and says it has excellent signal strength, then crash, all gone. When I look at the network properties and click okay (with no changes), it reconnects.

Does that sound like firewall? I looked in my firewall properties and clicked to be notified if the firewall blocks something, but I'm not receiving notification. I'm new to wifi, this is the only device I have with it so I can't test with anything else.

ETA - Nope, tried disabling firewall completely and it still disconnected. Re-enabling firewall reconnected the wifi without my prompting.

ETA - Again: this time my dork butt actually looked at the error code. 52000. Anyone know what this guy is talking about?

Hi,  For several months my laptop has continued to randomly disconnect from the wifi at least once a day, some days even a dozen times. I'm a very tolerant, patient person so I thought the issue might eventually resolve itself but it didn't. It's not a problem with the wifi, it's pretty top-notch and other devices in the house don't have any issues continuing to connect to the wifi. When it does this, it can't seem to find any network connections whatsoever even though there are two others in my house's vicinity as well that I can locate when the laptop is working with the wifi. Usually when the disconnect happens, I'm forced to close all my work and restart the machine - sometimes several times before it actually works - and I have to reboot everything I was working on. As someone who does a lot of online design work, this is incredibly frustrating as so much of my work has gone unsaved. If someone could help with this problem that would be fantastic. I've been considering buying another laptop because I'm so frustrated with what's happening with this one. Thank you,Mari

My laptop will not stay connected to wifi for more than a few seconds before 'limited access' appears.
It connects and disconnects repetitively.
i have a 3mobile wireless dongle. Other laptops stay connected no problem and i am always beside the dongle with full coverage.
if i click the network icon several times on the bottom right it reconnects for a few seconds again,
I have discovered that if i run 'funkypool' in the background the connection generally stays, but not 100%, but 90% anyway.
this may possibly be because its java and always refreshing itself i think.
it doesn't matter whether or not im plugged in or using battery but i did change the controls for automatically putting the wireless to sleep mode so i doubt that unless ive done it wrong. my laptop is 5 months old. trouble shooting does not raise any issues. any help greatly appreciated, thanks

So I took the plunge and updated to Windows 10 from 8.1. I did the FULL install, wiped my hard drive completely before installing Windows 10.

Everything is great, I really do like it.

But the WiFi keeps dropping and its extraordinarily aggravating.

I searched all over the internet with no solution in sight.

When this happens, I try to keep re-connecting it and it connects but then after awhile, it will just stop trying and I get the "System Broker has stopped working" as well as the "Network UX Broker has stopped working" error message.

Has anyone found a solution? I tried installing the WiFi drivers again and again but still nothing helping. I really think its a Windows issue that needs to be addressed via an update. I do have the latest updates installed as well.

I get to upload large files on Google Drive but there's just too many of the files and they are a bit large i.e. 4 Gb. Something - not sure if this is the browser or Google Drive itself keeps returning an error message reading 'Upload paused (offline), and, my WiFi, which is controlled by the operating system and the internet service provider along the way loses its connectivity.

I start worrying whether my neighbors are using the same frequency, and, after trying to restart the connection by signing out and signing in again the same thing happens all over. Usually when this happens I assume network traffic is not going to make my life easy for me to upload files over WiFi.

Does the architecture envisage software and other underlying solutions for these little problems?

A:The WiFi keeps disconnecting...

You can use a WiFi scanner (freeware) to check channel use and perhaps change channels on your router.

E.g. Acrylic Wi-fi, Xirrus Wifi Inspector

Also check your Wifi is not connecting to outside routers (see Wifi Sense in Settings).

A:VGA driver for IBM thinkpad T42 running windows 7

awah, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Considering the age of that laptop and the GPU that is in it (ATI Mobility 9600 or similar), the best you're going to get for it is the last XP driver as there are not now and never will be a Windows 7 driver for it. Best to go to IBM/Lenovo and get the XP driver for it. It may take using,

Compatibility Mode

to get it to install.

I was having issues with the Wi-Fi connecting and disconnecting after about 20 minutes a few months ago, I discovered I had so update the driver. Now I'm having the same issue. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing the drive, I've updated it, disabled it and nothing. Now it won't even show any networks. I really need this resolved, I have stuff due in a few days! Please and thank you

Using Win10 my Sony Vaio laptop connects ok to my BT wireless router but after a short while I lose the Internet connection. This happens because Win10 decides to switch to another wireless network which is secured and I do not have the password. When I disconnect this other network, reconnect back to mine, tick connect automatically I get Internet connection again only to lose it for the same reason a few minutes later. I guess it is WiFi Sense doing this but if so it should be renamed WiFi NonSense. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug ?
Thanks for any input.

lol

Don't know if you have tried this, but this is my suggestion:

Settings >Network & Internet > Wi-Fi > Manage Wi-Fi Settings
Go to the settings under the Wi-Fi Sense heading
Turn off "Connect to suggested open hotspots"
and/or
Turn off "Connect to networks shared by my friends"

Hi,A couple of months ago I bought a HP wifi mouse. The installation went smoothly and it was working fine. However, when I use it at the university the mouse disconnects a lot  (every 5 minutes) which is very annoying. At home it disconnects also some times but not as much as it does at the University. The battery status is fine and I use the mouse inches from the laptop so the distance can't be the problem. Is there something I can do to make the connenction stronger? Kind regards,Babs1990

Hello, I've had this problem for a good while and cant seem to find many answers. What happens is that I will be online and everything is fine untill my wife or daughter decide to get on to one of their devices that use the same wifi (ipad, ipod, phone) and everyone will get disconnected. After 2 or 3 minutes everyone will be able to connect again, for a few minutes at least, then we will get disconnected again. Rinse repeat.

Our router is a Belkin wireless G-plus mimo, Model# f509230-4
Modem is Westell model 6100, e90-610015-06
My wireless router in the bedroom connected to the PC is a linksys wusb6300 (blinks orange light at the time of dissconnect)

Any ideas on how we can stop constantly disconnecting each other would be greatly appreciated.

*just saw I posted this in the wrong place..ugh

A:Disconnecting from internet when others use the wifi

Two suggestions:

First, make sure you have the latest firmware for that router

Second, after updating the firmware, access the router config and set the MTU to 1492.

This will stop packet fragmentation and all devices will then be protected from a packet reassembly overflow condition, failing all existing connections.

My wifi keeps on disconnetcing from the network randomly.Sometimes it works fine for 10 minutes -1 hour and then the wifi signal changes to limited internet sign and then finally disconnects.This issue started when i updated my laptop to windows 10,but it was working fine before that.After constant searching on google i found lots of fixes by unsintalling the driver,updating the driver and changing power setting.But they didn't work.I thought the problem was due windows 10 so i went back to windows 8,but it still didn't work.So as a result i finally factory reset my computer.But the issue still continues.I am not sure about this but my friend had the same issue.I inserted his flash drive into his my comuter and my laptop started having the same problem.So i am not sure what caused the issue Upgrading to windows 10 or connecting a pen drive.My network adapter is Ralink RT5390 802.11bgn

A:Laptop Wifi keeps disconnecting??? Help!!!!

Hey Damian, have you updated your wifi adapted driver recently?
If you already have the latest driver, a reinstall of the driver may be a good idea.
To do this, simply search "update drivers" in the start menu, this should bring up the same program as in the attached image
