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.

Answer: Using Sierra EM7445 on X250

I?m still using a previous generation Lenovo laptop, X240. It includes an m.2 slot for WWAN devices. All WWAN devices are currently using USB interface, and none are using PCI-E, so only USB connectors are required to function in laptop?s m.2 slot. USB version in X240 and X250 is 2.0 only. And Sierra Wireless EM7445 supports USB 3.0 already, so even if the device is capable of receiving LTE data very fast, using carrier aggregation, there still can be a real bottleneck in data throughput, because the device will need to fallback to the older USB 2.0 protocol when coupled with a previous generation laptop, like X240 or X250.Also every time I turn my laptop on or wake up it from sleep, I?m getting a Windows notification ?This device can perform faster. Please connect it to a USB 3.0 port?. Lto 6 tapes

Is it really any good and practically beneficial?2. Can I use it on Fedora 27, How?s Linux support?3. X250 has two PCI Express M.2 card slot and one is already occupied by WLAN Card and other slot is available, Can I use empty slot for FRU-04X6014?4. Can I use both WLAN and WWAN simultaneously?5. What is the impact on battery (Windows and Linux)?6. Is AliExpress a good place to buy? Thankyou  

Answer:Sierra Wireless EM7345 4G LTE Mobile Broadband FRU: 04X6014 for my ThinkPad X250

Regarding your questions:1) I personally use it and it's really good, as I don't want to use additional USB modem or WWAN wireless router.2) Can't say, as I don't use Fedora.3) There's a dedicated port for this module. Please make sure, that you have an antenna connectors for module and adapter for a SIM card. Moreover, instead of WWAN module, you can install there a m.2 2242 SSD disk.4) Both can be enabled and connected, but application will use one at time.5) I have an extended battery, so it's hard to tell. I guess it have a simmilar power usage as WLAN module (basing on Windows power utilization). Can't say about Fedora.6) It you don't want to have a problem with whitelist (it prevent system from booting, when unauthorized module is installed), then I look for module on eBay. Make sure, that photos explictly show FRU PN: 04X6014 on module's label. Models without it will not work.

Answer:em7445 wireless card work in a t440 ?

Hi Staking,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.
 
As I understand that you have query regarding using ThinkPad EM7455 in yout ThinkPad T440
Unfortunately this model only supports Ericsson N5321 &  Sierra Wireless EM7345. And also it depends upon BIOS whitelist if you'll try to use any other components other than available in parts list for T440 it will not work 
 
And do let us know how it goes.
Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

I've looked at the new macOS and it seems ok, not really worth an upgrade, but can you still disable SIP with:

Code:
csrutil disable
?

Rootless really bugs me for technical reasons and it's vital for me to disable it (well, SIP is the real name for it since root account still exists).
 

Answer:SIP and macOS Sierra?

I did the upgrade a week ago and I'm happy with it. Is it a performance increase? Not that I can tell. Is it a performance decrease? Not that I can tell. Am I using Siri or any of the features? No. Am I on the latest version of macOS? Yup. I think this last bit is very important for all technology.

Edit: Checking now.
Edit: Yes it does.

My brand new direct from the factory X250(swedish/finish backlit keyboard) have a bad key. The D key works inconsistenly, you have to press it a lot harder than all the other keys making it a pain to use when you write because you have to anticipate every upcoming D and press harder. (It has to travel further down compared to the other keys).I am actually very dissapointed with this, the computer was expensive and should not suffer from factory defects such as a bad keyboard key.Is this something i can fix myself? I need the computer and don't wan't to send it away for multiple weeks or deal with the logistics of having to ship it and recive it.

Answer:New x250 have a bad key

Chances are the keyboard needs to be replaced. You could try reseating the keyboard, but it's fairly complicated on the X250. http://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/x250_hmm_en_sp40f30022.pdf

WARNING!!! The instructions in this post are applicable only to EM7345 installed in Lenovo laptops!! For example, models T440, X240, X1 Carbon 2nd and 3rd gen, X250. For tablets or other devices don?t use the firmware given in this post, you can brick your EM7345! Unfortunately, the default factory EM7345 firmware version  (1.1) has some bugs. For example, after connecting to a LTE network and then disconnecting manually, the network status of the connection was changing for me to ?No service? until device restart. Also, the device often disappears from Device Manager and reappears there with the name ?1 CDC? and does not work until you disable and then enable it again in Device Manager. All those issues are caused by some bugs in EM7345 firmware.But there is a newer version of firmware, namely 1.2, where the above bugs are fixed. But by default, you cannot flash it, because firmware updating is supposed to work unattended. And this is not nice of Intel and Lenovo. The users must be able to do firmware updating when they need or want it! Bad, bad Lenovo, very bad! Here?s the instructions of how to flash your EM7345 to the latest version:Make sure you?re using Windows 8 or 8.1Go to the control panel and uninstall Sierra Wireless EM734x 4G LTE Software from Program and Features.Reboot your laptop.Download and install the latest EM7345 driver package from the Lenovo website. http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-t-series-l...

When I open this graphics program I get the following message "An error has occurred in your program. To keep working anyway click ignore and save your work to a new file. To quit this program click close......" I double click on ignore and everything is fine until I want to print my card, when it comes up again. I've tried reinstalling the program but it didn't help.
Also when I print a card, borders, backround fillers etc. do not centre on the page. On a side fold card the left border is usually too far left, and on a top-fold card,the top border is too high. I've tried changing the print area values and the margins before printing, but the only thing that works is to manually move the whole design on the grid and this is a hit and miss affair, which wastes a lot of paper and ink - not to mention time and temper. Any advice out there?

I've purchased an overdrive from Sprint to resolve my lack of internet while on the road in my RV. The unit works fine as to hooking up to the internet. However I am having problems with my network. While at home I use my desk top in my second bedroom, which runs Vista and I have a laptop in the living room, also running Vista. The overdrive is supposed to be able to share the internet with 5 computers, hookup a printer, download music and have memory storage. I have tried to setup file sharing between my two computers and am unable to get my laptop to find my desk top. The laptop shows on the network window on my desk top, but will not come up on the laptop. I have turned on all of the file sharing areas that I can think of on the desk top both have discovery turned on. I have also purchased a wireless adapter for the desk top to make it wwireless. I am picking up the laptop through the overdrive . I've contacted Sprint and no one has any idea what the Overdrive will do. Only that it gets the internet. Anyone have any Ideas?
 

Answer:Sprint sierra Overdrive

At the computer end, it appears to be a plain router.
Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt.

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands:

PING each remote computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. Open a command prompt as described above and type.

PING <ip address>
or
PING <computer name>

Where:
<ip address> - is the x.x.x.x IP address
<computer name> - is the computer name

A failure to PING is almost always a firewall configuration issue. Any failure to PING needs to be corrected before you go any farther.

Note: You can obtain the IP address and computer name of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG /ALL. This should work for any Windows version. The IPCONFIG /ALL display will provide a wealth of useful information for debugging your network connection.

I have this rather irritating problem in that whenever I install the drivers/software for my sierra airport 595u card, it kills the usb host controllers. By kill, I mean I get "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (code 39) errors. This is on both my laptop and desktop I've tried this on. I don't even have the device plugged in when installing, but when I reboot this happens. Uninstalling the software doesn't work, only system restore before the install or format and re-install. I tried comparability mode for vista, no go.

Answer:Incompatability with Sierra Wireless?

Quick update. Apparently the drivers can be loaded if you do it manually. The device won't actually connect without the sprint pcs connection manager's services running. As near as I can tell, running them causes the computer to be unable to re-start any usb style devices. Any ideas?

Maybe someone with Games experience can help.

Got Sierra Home Architect 4.0 and trying to run it on Windows 7. I've deleted the msvcrt.dll files and it starts. I have access to the custom library and such, but if I try to start with a blank design it crashes. I've tried the option to run it in previous versions of Windows, but still have that problem. Found one fix that wanted me to do something with files that don't exist on the disc.

Any ideas?
 

Answer:Sierra Home Architect

Find a different game. From what I found the program has been discontinued will not be updated.

Hi, In Lenovo`s website it says that Sierra Wireless EM7345 FRU 04X6014 has GPS as well. So, I installed it on my x1 Carbon gen2, its network is working perfectly but when I tired its GPS it isn`t. When I open Maps of Microsoft or installed other apps it didn`t work either. So, where could be the problem.. is it the app/program or it`s the modem I am using Windows 10 Pro Thanks,Kushtrim

Hello, I try to set 4k on LG 27UD68-W, but I am not successful. I have latest display drivers and latest bios. But still, I may set only FHD. I use mDP to HDMI cable which supports 4k - tried it with MCB. I have WIN10-64b installed (updated from WIN8). I will be thankful for any tips. EDIT: I think that I am wrong because that cable sends probably information through some thunderbolt fibres. I will buy mDP - DP Lenovo cable and I hope that it will work. I don't have a different device with mDP for testing.

Answer:x250 4k via mDP to HDMI

Could you provide more information about the system configuration on your x250? What processor, graphics, and RAM does your machine have? What kind of mDP to HDMI cable are you suing? I see that the monitor you are using supports HDMI 2.0, but I'm not sure if the x250 is going to generate an HDMI 2.0 signal through the mDP to HDMI cable. I hope that the Lenovo mDP-DP cable will work. I will be able to understand the issue better once I have more information.

I've just received a new X250, maxed out, and I'm really unhappy. Within a few minutes of booting it, I was seeing red and blue horizontal lines on the screen. I hoped these would be fixed by updates, but regardless of the driver, they are still there. To add insult to injury, the ports on the left hand side of the laptop do not line up with the casing. The USB port can be used, but the Display Port is seriously rubbing. The VGA connector is unusable. I'd hoped I'd have the laptop a week before I started a new job, and now it looks like I will be a week later. Does anyone know how I best approach Lenovo for a replacement under the Sale of Goods Act? I really don't want it to be repaired - this is a bad machine.

Answer:Really disappointed in new X250

Sorry to hear about the issues with your new X250. That must be very frustrating. According to Lenovo, returns should be easy providing you do it within 14 days.
 
I appreciate you may not receive the replacement before you start your new job. You might want to ask Lenovo if they have a similarly configured X250 in stock that they could send you instead of waiting for the replacement to come from China.

Hi, I just bought a X250 today. I received it with Windows 7 Pro, and the first thing I did was upgrade it to Windows 10. After an hour of use, I noticed that the battery was draining really fast. I clicked in the battery icon on the system tray and noticed that it says: Battery 1: This battery is not available for useBattery 2: 40% (or whatever) I opened Device Manager and I see two devices listed under the "batteries" section, both of them called "Battery with Microsoft ACPI-compliant control method" (translating from Spanish, which is my system language, so it might not be exactly like this). I guess this means that the system indeed detects that there are two batteries, so it looks like a software problem. I right clicked on both of them and selected "uninstall", and then went to action > look for hardware changes, so that should refresh the driver. After doing that, the "battery 1: this battery is not available" message still appears. I also noticed that there was a power manager application from Lenovo which is not compatible with Windows 10. After upgrading, Windows notified me that this app had been removed and I don't see a W10 equivalent on the support downloads section of the Lenovo website. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! Pau

Answer:X250 Battery 1 "is not available for use"

I also tried unplugging the second battery (the removable one). Immediately after unplugging it, the computer shuts down. If I turn it on without the second battery and plugged into the wall outlet, the icon in the lower right corner (system tray) says "no battery found"; however, on device manager I still can see one battery appearing. If I click on "properties" in device manager, it says that the device is working correctly, and there is no sign of any error log or crash report inside the battery properties in device manager.  I tried updating the BIOS and resetting BIOS to defaults, and it makes no difference. I also tried running Ubuntu from a USB stick ("try" option) and it only detects the second battery, not the integrated one.  I guess it must be a hardware problem.

hello everyone,I have problem with random BSOD with Windows 10 running on X250.The BSOD error may vary and is not probably important (Windows encountered problem.., kernel_inpage_error, critical_process_died etc. it might not be precise wording from BSOD). The memory dump is never created nor anything is logged in windows EventViewer until next start.I found out that problem is that system HDD (SSD SAMSUN MZ7LN256HCHP-000L7) gets disconnected (or switched off?) and this causes the BSOD.I played with Power option little bit and at some point I could simulate the issue with setting in Power Option -> "Turn off harddisk after". But this does not fixes the issue completely. I have disabled this option and still get the BSOD randomly even on AC. I do not want to switch everything to full (every power option).So before I am going to contact Lenovo for repair, does anyone experienced the similar issue? I think that it could be issue with either motherboard, SATA cable or Samsung SSD drive.I have tried the Lenovo system check (bios app) testing Motherboard, harddisk, memory etc. No problem. I tried windows tool to check disk... all good. Installation is new (like a week ago I installed Windows 10). Unfortunatelly I am not the first owner and I am not sure if problem was with Win8.1 also. So it could be some power handling of Windows 10 (although I do not belive it much).

Answer:X250 fan issue

If you mean locker piece for slot that keeps cpu fan cable in place then only way to solve that is to solder old port off and sold new one on or it would be a motherboard replacement the lock piece is not sold standalone since it's stuck to the slot area by default.

Hello guys I recently bought a second hand X250 with an Intel 240gb SSD installed and I am planning to install also an M.2 SSD to install Linux.I have already installed Linux in another partition in the Intel, but in general I am not a big fan of grub and also I don't like the restriction of maximum 4 primary partitions per disk. I would prefer to keep the Windows drive 100% clean of any Linux staff.So, I'm planning to install my Linux in the M.2 drive (I have already cleaned my system disk of the Linux staff, grub etc) and I was wondering if choosing the boot up device from the bios is going to be an option, without grub or other boot loaders. I just want to leave the Intel as default boot device and when I want to boot up in Linux, I will choose to boot from the M.2 SSD.Will such a setup work in my Thinkpad?As far as the M.2 drive itself, a 120 gb is more than enough and I am planning to go for an ADATA. I have read a lot of negative reviews about the Transcend M.2s and I don't trust "random" manufacturers, like ZTC or KingDian. Is there any better option for me? Thank you very much for your time. I 'm looking forward to your replies. Cheers

Hello, I have been purchasing Thinkpads for about 10 years and ran into a new problem with a brand new X250.  I purchased a Samsung 850 500gb for it.  After configuring the laptop as our normal image, I then copied the drive and everything was fine.  After that, I put the Samsung drive in (already imaged) and the machine would go to a black screen after POST.  It wouldn't even boot off USB drive.  Very confused, so I put the original drive in, and it won't boot, just a flashing underscore on the top right, but it will boot from USB.  I already checked the secure boot and tinkered with the BIOS.  Both drives test fine in my X230.  I have the machine in Japan and really don't want to fight with warranty replacement, because it really seems like a BIOS problem.  One more note, just updated BIOS to 1.15 and still have the problem.  Thank you in advance!

Answer:X250 Cannot boot on new SSD

Almost the same problem here.  Just cloned our x250's drive to a new Samsung 850, swapped the new drive in, it worked fine for a couple of boots, but now machine won't boot even to the point of any lights or the fan coming on with either the new or the old drive in.  Dead as a brick.  I've tried with and without the battery, I've tried the reset hole, tried letting the machine sit for a while with no power or battery to try to drain the internal battery, nothing seems to work. Any suggestions before I phone IBM are appreciated.

Hi and welcome, BCRandCoThe 3rd m.2 slot will be there if you add the smart card reader. The slot is placed on its dummy under internal battery.

Question: X250 Spacebar

I recently bought an X250, and immediately upon using it, found that the spacebar is not as responsive as all the older thinkpads I've had in the past. Specifically, when I type I press on the right side of the spacebar to create a space, but my usual amount of force is no longer responded to by the keyboard. If I push harder, it will respond, but that's annoying because it slows down my typing speed. If I press on the middle of the spacebar it works much better, and if I press it with my left thumb it works better, too. Does that mean I'm typing wrong all these years, or did I end up with a bad key?  I have depot service, so would Lenovo address this if I send it in? If I send this in, do I need to remove all the data on the machine? Would they replace the spacebar or the entire keyboard as I saw somewhere? How long would it take? Gotta say that the keyboard is much worse than the X230 that I am coming from. Thanks for any heads up!

Good morning everyone. I installed on my x250 (using a free WWAN slot) M.2 SSD disk - ADATA Premier SP600 256GB M.2 SSD. First installation: April 2016. The disk worked great. After a "BIG windows10 update" the drive began to freeze and died on August 2016. The drive was replaced with a new one. On March 2017 the problem returned (in the new disk) - again began to freeze and died.From here my question arises - did I make a mistake somewhere? Do dear forumers who did similar installations on their x250 have similar problems? What can I do to prevent the problem on the third drive? During installation I did not mix anything in BIOS etc - just "plug ang play". I would be very grateful for your help.

Hello, I just installed a mc7710 modem in my X230 laptop, it shows up the first time I install in but after reboot it´s gone?? I tried the mc7710 in another laptop (HP) and it works out of the box when drivers from sierra homepage is installed. I also discoverd that if i tell the X230 to hibernate and then wake´s it up the device shows up for about ten seconds and then disapears again.The only thing that is visible in devicemanager is some "Sierra wireless locator" , thats the only thing about th mc7710 that is vissible al the time. I have upgraded to the latest firmware and latest bios, running win 10 but I can install win 7 if requierd. My guess is that there is some "sleep-mode" or something that turns off the device but where can I find the setting for that?? P.S The 3G modem that where installed previous to the mc7710 was working properly.

HiDoesn't the mc7710 exist in the "Network Adapters" thread of the Device Manager? Is there mc7710 related port in the "Port" thread? Are there unknown devices in the DM after mc7710 disappears? Is the OS win8/8.1? What fw and drivers are installed? What USB vid/pid IDs does mc7710 have while it's visible in the DM?I didn't hear about such mc7710 behaviour earlier. W/o additional information I'd assume the cause is USB Selective Suspend Mode and its drivers.

It has worked fine except in two instances: first when traveling from the US to Switzerland, upon arrival it "failed to initialize" the device as I tried to run the dialer. This was true despite cold restarts. About a day later it started working, and working consistently, in Switzerland. Upon return to the US exactly the same phenomenon: unable to initialize for about a day. Then, working fine.Lenovo is ready to replace the card, but does anyone know if this is a software or other glitch for which I shouldn't trouble them? Something having to do with switching countries?  (And do I appear to be running the latest firmware/drivers? Firmware is H1_1_9_3MCAP.) Thanks,JZ

Answer:Sierra Wireless AT&T WWAN issue

To follow up for any that come later: the card was replaced, but experienced the same phenomenon in going to the Netherlands and back again to the US.  This time I downloaded and ran the "Sierra Wireless Watcher."  After the wireless radio was turned on it sat at "searching..." for about five minutes, then found the new band.  Once found it sticks, so the regular Lenovo dialer can then be used.  So it's not a hardware problem, and there's a solution.  ...JZ

Hi thereWe have a new x61s 7667-cto with sim card slot and sierra umts modem .Sim card is in place and sierra driver looks correctly installed , however is not clear how to activate and setup the umts sierra modem.any help will be apreciatedThanksMirco

That is usually done via the Connection Manger software supplied by an ISP.  I have no idea what is supplied with a 7667-CTO, but the Sierra Wireless generic Connection Manager (on the Sierra web site) might work.
Cheers,

A friend of mine has a P50, and was interested to know that he could have gotten it from Lenovo with a Sierra Wireless card already installed.  Is this something that he and I can do (I'm a hobbyist desktop builder), or is there some unchangeable difference in the motherboard?  Which Sierra Wireless card fits best and works in the US on the Verizon network?

I have a new T540p running Windows 10 with a factory installed Sierra Wireless EM7355, Qualcomm Gobi 4G LTE/HSPA+/EVDO/GSM/GPRS/EDGE, GPS, M.2 Card and I cannot get any GPS functionality with this. On my previous T510 /Win7  and a Qualcom Gobi 2000  I could use  the Thinkpad GPS program to manage the GPS, and then my mapping and navigation programs would see the GPS as a Comm port and connect with no problems at all. Reading posts here, it seemed that a program called GPS Complete from turboirc.com would do the job; I downloaded and installed it, and it seemed like it worked once, but now it doesn't. What's the solution here? (I have a USB GPS, but I bought a top of the line laptop because I wanted built-in GPS capabilities.) Edit: The wireless WAN/Mobile Broadband is activated through Verizon Wireless and is functional. Wifi, Bluetooth, and other communication features all work properlyp Thanks!

Answer:GPS T540p w/Sierra Wireless EM7355

HiFirstly, I don't have win10 installed neither em7355 card, So, my words below are ... just the words, they might not help.1. What virtual device is your location app (apps?) using? Com port or sensor? 2. Do you see location sensor em7355 related in the Device Manager?3. I hope you are using GPSComplete app properly. Whether the second device (com port?) had appeared in the Device Manager?4. Is location feature, based on the em7355 card, enabled in the win10 settings menu?5. em7355 location features might depend on the drivers installation options, similar previous Gobi gererations. Navigate to the folder where the drivers package is extracted, with .msi installer inside. There should be .ini file with options for installer. Post its content here.6. I hope you know the 1st fix after wwan modem based on GPS sensor cold start needs a long time, 10...20 minuts and more, especially indoor

Does anyone have a solution to the fact that my intelli? keyboard supplied as a standard one from Mesh works incorrectly with some games especially Sierra (Half-life). I have always used the arrow keys for direction but now they appear to not be recognised by the games (shift?)

Answer:Mesh keyboards and Sierra games

Sorry, not sure on your tech level.When you go to the key config screen and set your keys are the arrow keys picked up if you try to set them?I used to use the arrow keys all the time myself but since planetside have recently moved to the more popular "wasd" key configuration, partially because I was fed up of reconfiguring my keys for each new game.

I have been reading about macOS for quite some time & tried it out on one of my friends Macbook Air too. The operating system seems to be great & have plenty of features and its integration with iOS is quite fantastic.

What i really want to know is which is better in which perspective like Windows is way better option for gamers.

& Please this is not Macbook vs PC, just the battle of OS in terms of their features.

Try not to biased.
 

Answer:MacOS Sierra vs Windows 10(Creator)

If you're referring to a Desktop OS, Graphics would definitely go to Windows because of the large amount of support from not only third parties, but Microsoft themselves. The new rollout of graphics changes after Aero which is coming soon, will change the entire theme and improve something which is great already. Along with this, Third parties support Windows because it's the most widely home used Operating system. Mac OS runs on linux and is limited in terms of features.

I've installed Sierra MC8355 drivers on Windows 10 64-bit. Drivers installed successfully, Network connections show new 'Cellular' connection, Device manager shows new Sierra 8355 devices which have drivers installed. So it looks like everything is ok with drivers (Windows 8.1 drivers) on Windows 10. My question is - what should I install to be able to use that 3G and GPS? How can I perform a 3G connection and run GPS tracking? I tried software for Windows 7 - it failed. 

Answer:Sierra Wireless MC8355 on Windows 10

Hi and welcome, OxeliPlease, clarify: aren't you able to establish 3g connection using win10 mobile broadband features? What are the symptoms?To enable GPS capabilities, reinstall the drivers with option GPS=1 in the setup command line (note, use the setup installer, not the drivers package). Or, if there is configuration file in the folder where drivers are being extracted, change appropriate settings within it.

Windows just updated again and now my LTE wireless card no longer works.  In the device manager the Sierra Wireless EM7345 4G LTE hardware has an exclamation mark and the device status lists. This device cannot start. (Code 10){Operation Failed}The requested operation was unsuccessful. I tried updating to the latest driverfrom July, but to no luck.http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/DS040771?LinkTrack=Solr I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling again, but no change.  It seems to prefer the "Generic Mobile Broadband Adapter" driver from Microsoft when I try to update. Any suggestions?

What a pain! The Sierra Wireless EM7345 is so unusable (Windows 8.1 / 10); Deutsche Telekom SIM. Sometimes it works; sometimes it doesn't. Using deal-in tools help sometimes but not always. Called Lenovo; they sent me an replacement (ericsson) ... with not LTE / 4G. Come on Lenovo ... the internet is full of issues with this real worst Sierra Wireless EM7345 module. Fix it!

any idea how to solve my problem ?

I tried Windows 7 RC on my Lenovo T61p. I could not get my Sierra Wireless Broadband card working. It did not seem to have a driver that worked with Windows 7.

Has anyone been able to get that working? Does anyone else have this card and also have problems?

Answer:Drivers for Sierra wwan card?

Hi,
I'm experiencing the same problem...
It seems that the PCI to USB Hub drivers of the IBM hardware is not compatible with Windows 7 system. I think the solution is replacing the card or wait to October 22nd hopefully it will be resolved with the offical version.
If you found any other solution I'd love to hear,
Thanks,
Eran.

Hi,What is the attached screenshot?Its a URL banner that appears under my tabs bar and all it has is the URL of the site I'm visiting.So annoying!What good is it?How do I get rid of it?Thanks!

Answer:Safari (Sierra) has weird URL banner

Why does it bother your? It indicates that you are linking to some kind of the apple forums.Is says:Code: [Select]http://www.appleforums.net/forum/forum.php
If you put that into the browser address line you will go to an independent apple forum site. The site looks to be a good site. Does that help any?

Hello everyone.
Looking to setup a network with a hotspot.
I have:this hotspot modem and
this router
and what i'm going for is a setup like this:
(thanks to the original poster for this image).
I apparently have very little knowledge on what i'm doing here, I've been trying at this for about a week when i have had time and after about 5 failed attempts, the most i've managed to accomplish is getting my router to connect to the hotspot. I'm actually at the office so i apologize about the lack of detail at this time. when i get to a pc I edit/update this post.
any info. helping me in the right direction would be appreciated.
 

Answer:Sierra Wireless overdrive pro to router

You need a wireless bridge. Some routers can do this. I do not think the one you pictures can.
