Hello all   I've encountered a strange problem with my WWAN adapter. I bought a SIM and insterted it in the Thinkpad. BEFORE I installed the Sierra driver (the one for win 10): The wwan adapter couldn't be found in the network adapters. The device manager showed me a list of active but not migrated WAN adapters. All used the default windows driver. AFTER the driver installation (without any error messages and a reboot) the WAN adapters in the device manager are gone. They can only be found under the disconnected devices. The WWAN still cant be found as a network adapter   Is there a solution to activate the wwan adapter?   Thanks in advance

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...

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

How to flash the firmware of the sierra wireless em7345 on windows 10 ?  Its not possible through the steps i could find which was only for widnows 8. 

Answer:Sierra Wireless EM7345 windows 10

HiOnce the modem drivers are installed, including Intel flash tool, and the sim card inserted, during laptop cold start the flash service checks out whether newer firmware is available according to current modem fw and the sim card data (more clearly, cellular operator MCC/MNC values), and performs the flashing process if it's needed, in auto mode. You should see appropriate notification from the flash service in the system tray.

If I have understand correctly EM7345 is made specifically for Lenovo based on their requirements and specifications. Lenovo is also responsible for this firmware....on Carbon X1 etc...   I found an interesting AT command for Sierra Wireless EM7345. The command is ?AT+XCIQ?.

(No need for APN settings)I went to Spain for a week and tried 2 different providers: Labara and Hits mobile.They are both guesting in Vodaphone's network.In the network connection dialog they both indicate Vodaphone ES with an additional roaming indicator.When trying to connect they both ask for an APN string: gprsmov.lebaramobile.espc.hitsmobile.es After clicking connect it takes like no time till it says "cannot connect," I wonder,Windows bug?

Answer:X1 Carbon - Driver Sierra Wireless EM7345 ?

Hi, jkuengWhat's the OS installed on your laptop? For win8/8.1 there are no needs for drivers if the card is in MBIM mode. It must work natively in OS. Let's check it. Look at the Device Manager, open Network Adapters item. You should see something with AiarCard. Open Properties, Details tab, pull down Options list, find out an item Compatible ID. Looks like USB\Class_xx&SubClass_xx&Prot_xx). Copy the values and past here. Will look.
 
Also, could you, please, post here USB IDs of this card? Find it at the same list under Hardware ID item (looks like VID_xxxx&PID_xxxx).

Hi Support, I would like to change a setting, so that the Sierra Wireless Adapter only connects to 4G networks. In Windows 10, I cannot see anywhere where I can easily set this. I would expect there to be mobile management software where these settings could be changed. I never want to connects to GPRS, and would like my Sierra Wireless mobile card to only connect to 4G or not connect at all. This would prevent the card dropping down to GPRS when the signal is temporarily weak and force it it to try for a 4G connection. I have had similar functionality on prior USB mobile data cards I.e. Vodafone, and hence the expectation that there would be similar settings on the Sierra Wireless. Thank you, George

Hi , I have updated to the 1607 Anniversary Update in August and noticed that my WWAN Sierra Wireless EM7345 had problems starting up after reboot. Because of other problems with the 1607 I reverted back to 1511 and everything was alright again.A week ago I upgraded again to 1607 and again, my WWAN sometimes cannot start when booting up. The error log shows Miniport Sierra Wireless EM7345 4G LTE, {b343453c-24e6-493d-ba47-33eaec4de5e3}, had event Fatal error: The miniport has detected an internal error (details see below). So this clearly has to do something with the 1607 update or the drivers for the WWAN. I am using the latest drivers from the Lenovo website and have also tried to update drivers in device manager. But no luck. What helps to finally start the WWAN is either a reboot (the chances the WWAN is started properly are about fifty-fifty) or clicking WWAN off and on in flight mode options of Windows.  Maybe someone has an idea other than waiting for Microsoft to fix this stupid 1607? Thanks and best regards,Martin  Log Name:      SystemSource:        Microsoft-Windows-NDISDate:          10.10.2016 06:37:19Event ID:      10317Task Category: PnPLevel:         ErrorKeywords:      (16384),(16),(4),(2)User:      ...

Hi all,I've really been helped by this forum in the past, and really hope you can help with this issue.I've installed the card and installed the driver - all of which has gone down without a hitch. The compute recognises the card with no issues. Unfortunately, however, when a simcard is inserted it does not register the simcard whatsoever - 'Insert sim' is still present.In my searches on this forum it seems this problem is Windows 10 specific - the system does recognise the wireless card but does not recognise the simcard reader. Anecdotally, it seems to work for others when using Windows 7 (although that wouldn't be a fantastic solution in my situation.)Is there any solution for this?Thank you in advance for your time and any responses!Jack

Additional drivers are needed for the legacy location features via NMEA port, for the custom wwan card virtual devices configuration (like NDIS port etc).So, the 1st thought modem firmware is outdated. Check it out:open command prompt window (cmd) and type in the following stringnetsh mbn sh cap int=*Copy and past an output here (remove Device ID for your privacy).Another version is connection settings, APN mainly.

Hello everyone, I'm a bit desperate because I already tried so much.I'm running Windows 8.1 on my Lenovo X240, BIOS version 2.3 and the WWAN functionality broke about two weeks ago and I'm quite sure that this is related to a few updates that came either with Windows or more likely with Lenovo System Update which had a BIOS update and some driver updates alongside at that time.I cannot even try to establish a connection to the Deutsche Telekom LTE network, because all I'm seeing is "Insert a SIM" in the connection bar.This is what I tried so far:Use a different, well known working SIM card.Re-Install the driver packageUninstall and re-install the driver packageuse the "repair" function of the driver package setupBIOS downgrade from 2.3 to 2.29Disable and enable the WWAN functionality in the BIOSReplace the mainboard (lenovo service technician just went away an hour ago)And I'm still having the same issue. Now it's really nailed down to be either the BIOS or the driver in win 8.1 x64.

HelloI got a totally new T450s with Windows 7 preinstalled. I did immediately an updgrade to Windows 10. Now the Sierra cellular modem is not working properly after inserting a SIM card (which works fine on another laptop). It says "Cellular No Service". The driver that is installed is "generic mobile broadband adapter" and not the Sierra Driver. I downloaded the lates Sierra Driver from the Lenovo website and installed it. Without success, it always installs the "generic mobile broadband adapter".Anyone any idea? ThanksAlexander Avidan

Answer:t450s Sierra Wireless EM7345 not working after upgrade to Windows 10

Welcome, Alexander Do you see broadband item on the cellular settings pane?The most likely cause of issue is APN setting missing in the connection profile. What is your operator name and what profile settings do you see?Win10 doesn't need modem manufacturer drivers for broadband access only, it uses built-in drivers. Also, there are default connection profile settings in the OS. If your operator is missing in that base or connection profile settings differ, you should edit profile on the cellular pane under administrative privileges.Anyway, I'm not sure em7345 modem in the Device Manager's "Network adapters" category in the win10 with OS built-in drivers installed should look like "generic mobile broadband adapter".

I upgraded my Helix Gen 2 to Windows 10 with few problems except for the Sierra WWAN interface to Windows 10 settings. The cellular button on the wireless menu is greyed out and the cellular option page in settings shows no devices. The adapter setting shows the adapter, and on the Settings, Network & Internet , Airplane mode page show both Mobile broadband and Wi-Fi buttons. WWAN can be enabled by truning off Wi-Fi and turning on Mobile broadband on Airplane Mode settings page. With these settings, I can connect to WWAN Verizon and get to internet but:1. Settings, Network & Internet , Cellular shows no connections2. Wireless pop up menu shows Cellular and Mobile Hotspot greyed out. So, in summary, I can connect to WWAN, but only via Settings, Network & Internet , Airplane mode page using proceedure above. By the way, my upgrade to Win 10, switched on the rotation lock, but I was able to fix that in Win 10 settings in table mode.

Hello, I'm thinking to buy ThinkPad Sierra Wireless EM7345 4G LTE Mobile Broadband FRU: 04X6014 for my ThinkPad X250. I?ve few questions, Pease suggest ...1. 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.

Question: T440s with EM7345

I've got a T440s running windows 7 with a em7345 4g mobile module installed, the drivers install correctly and it recongnises the sim but fails to find the network (upon trouble shooting the connection windows suggests that there is no signal, however my phone uses the same network so I know this to not be the case). My best guess so far is that it's either something to do with the apn settings (I'm based in the UK and use the giffgaff mobile network which does require apn settings to be set) or there's an issue with the antena. No connection shows up in the VAN UI. Anyone with any ideas about how I could go about testing either of those things?

Are you changing it ? If so what firmware are you using ? There's a new 15XX variant in the new driver release but it says NAND so guessing North America market - that said seems to work fine on my modem anyway. Let me know

Answer:EM7345 Firmware - Best One ?

the lastest firmware is 1.2.. and here are the AT main secret programming codes and commands...(I do not want ...etc..publish more secret codes etc..do not ask for more..)..because they are too dangerous etc..to change the commands etc..use this software..PuTTYhttp://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html AT commands are very helpful for troubleshooting your device and changing the settings that are not available from standard Windows settings. For example, you can choose the access technology ? 2G, 3G, 4G and even stick to particular frequency bands.EM7345 is using Intel (formerly Infineon) AT command set and it?s not compatible with Quallcomm AT command set. All basic AT commands like AT+CFUN are more or less the same for all 3G/4G devices, but advanced ones, starting from AT+X, are unique to Intel XMM platform devices.No official documentation for AT commands was released by Intel, all I was able to find is some source code fragments for Samsung phones (that are based on the earlier XMM platform, like XMM 6380, or so)  on GitHub.To use AT commands, first you have to enable EM7345 AT command port, There are many cases when your newly installed EM7345 doesn?t work. Let?s start step by step.AT+CFUN?should return: +CFUN: 1,01 means the device is turned on. If it?s not 1, make sure your EM7345 is turned on in Windows Connection Manager.

I recently purchased a ThinkPad W540. And noticed my connection is dropping every few seconds.
 
First thing I did was getting a new SIM card. didn't change anything.Now I left Device Manager open by accident, and noticed the EM7345 was disappearing from the list and then appearing again. Does this mean the EM7345 is faulty?I have been unable to install the latest driver. It still shows the inbox Microsoft driver dating back to 2013 in Windows 8.1. I was hoping a firmware update might fix it. But to my understanding Windows 8.1 loads this firmware from the hard disk or SSD upon boot.
 
I confirmed the network card is also behaving the same in Ubuntu 14.10.Now I plan on calling Lenovo tomorrow for an on-site replacement.

Answer:EM7345 randomly disconnecting in new W540.

When it disappears do you see an unknown device called '1 CDC'  in Device Manager ? It always use Microsoft generic driver because it works in MBIM device mode (IOW there is no need for vendor specific network device driver, except the GPS). What firmware version do you have ? Follow this thread http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-Tablets/Sierra-Wireless-EM7345-ThinkPad-8-and-10-general-issues...

b) Edit with admin privileges:

and set:

SilentAutoFWUpdate to false
PromptForSilentAutoFwUpdateFail to true
EnforceModuleCompatibility to false
FirmwareSysTray to true

c) Restart

You will be prompted for firmware upgrade, in my case with a generic driver.

Hi, I've planned to buy  a  good LTE WWAN adapter for my T440 recently, but going though many negative opinions on officially supported EM7345  I think it's point less to spend many on it. I really like EM7455 but I am sure I will fall into the problem with "unsupported WWAN card ..."  which I know I can work around, but would prefer a clean solution instead. Is there any good alternative to EM7345 for T440 to get it working out of the box? Ideal would be official BIOS with EM7455 enabled in BIOS whitelist, which I believe is unlikely.

I already made a backup of my Windows 7 Pro install using the Lenovo tool. But if I want to run a VM can anyone tell me what I need to have since this L450 has no optical drive I'm unsure if I will need another image to be safe, (and product key?)

Hello and welcome,
 
What's the stock setting when you're booting the installed Win 7?  UEFI or legacy?
 
What software are you using to create your Linux media?  For UEFI installs I usually just configure a FAT32 flash drive and use something like 7zip to extract the contents of the Linux ISO to it.  This presumes a 64-bit UEFI-capable distro.

Question: Thinkpad L450 SSD

Hi, I'm considering to buy any SSD drive to my L450. This laptop has m.2 slot. Now I have a 500GB HDD in SATA port. Is it better to buy a small 128 GB M.2 SSD, or bigger 240GB SSD to SATA? If I buy 128 M2 SSD, I will keep a 500GB HDD in SATA position. So, is there any way to completely turn off HDD in SATA, if i will dont need them? Or is it better buy bigger SATA SSD? On HDD will be only data (pics, videos, etc.), if I buy SATA SSD, i will make HDD as external.

Hello guys, is there any way to replace the HD display in my TP L450 for FullHD IPS? Some configurations come with FullHD IPS, but I have a bad HD TN display. I did not find any detailed information about the pinout, both have a 30pin connector - will it be compatible?

Any advice on installing a 128gb SSD in place of the hard-drive, using this for the OS (Windows 7), and putting the old HDD in the optical drive slot for use as storage.

Is this relatively easy to do on this model, and would a fresh install be wiser than cloning?

There are no files on the drive apart from the OS that need to be preserved - all documents etc are on googledrive, dropbox, and onedrive.

Would adjustments need to be made when doing a fresh install to preserve the recovery files on D?

I created a system restore drive a while back -- does this include Windows 7, or would I need to download it and get the licence number.

Is it easy enough to plug everything in and use the 'system restore' USB stick to re-load Windows?

Thanks for any answers

I have a Thinkpad L450. I know on some Thinkpad models it is possible to add a second SDD by inserting a M.2 SSD in the WWAN slot. Is that possible with the L450? If so, is it SATA or PCIe? Do I need to set anything in the BIOS to make it work? I know the form factor is M.2 2242. Thanks.

Hi

I have a Satellite L450-188 and it has stopped working. I have tried to use the recovery disc but it wont recover and says the dics 0 and 1 no physical drive. Do you know what this means and how I can get round it at all?

Thanks emma

Answer:Satellite L450 - Won't boot

Hey,

> it has stopped working
What does this mean? You can?t boot into Windows anymore or do you get an error message?

Well, usually to reinstall Windows you have to boot from first recovery disk and then follow the screen instructions to reinstall Windows. Everything happens automatically and you get factory settings back.

Hi all!

I've got a Satellite L450-16K here with a microphone bug.
When the microphone is boosted up to 30dB it is beeping so loud.
I don't know why, but without boosting, just on the maximum volume it works normaly.
I tried the realtek driver, but the result was same.

Anyone can help me?

Ok, before I go into the problem itself I would like to say that I don't have the slightest clue about computing and laptops etc. So I would appreciate no jargon and please keep guides so an absolutely uneduated fool could understand haha.

Basically, one day I just decided I had enough of my *Toshiba Satellite Pro L450-17L* going really slow so I went to restore the disk and I cannot remember how I did this. Anyway, everything seemed to be going fine until it came up with a white screen after fully rebooting saying PLEASE WAIT Finishing installation may take several minutes. Please do not interrupt or shutdown the computer!

I think at this point my laptop turned off because it needs to be plugged in at all times and the charger came loose (this is because the battery has been completely drained) and now all I have is a guest account and no other accounts whatsoever! I cannot reboot the laptop because of this and was hoping if someone could tell me another way I can reboot it because I can't believe this is the only way.

All help and guides are very much appreciated!

EDIT: I forgot to mention that this white screen comes up everytime now and never goes away!

Answer:I cannot reboot my Satellite Pro L450-17L

>... and I cannot remember how I did this
To be honest it is not easy to say much about this issue and in my opinion you should install recovery image again following description on http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD1303440001R02.htm

Do not do anything before your notebook is connected to AC power supply.

Hi

It seems that the Recover disks for Toshiba European notebook models can be shipped to the countries in the EMEA region only.

However, you could try to install the clean Win 7 OS on this notebook.

What do you think about that?

According notebok specification your Satellite Prohas Mobile Intel GL40 Express Chipset ant it can handle with 4 GB RAM max.
Unfortunately there is no precise info about HDD upgrade but it is SATA HDD what means up to 400 or even 500 GB should not be problem.

Interesting time doing a Windows 10 Upgrade with an old L450-17K notebook - the first time it didn't work, so used the Recovery USB, went back to Windows 7, then upgraded up to Windows 10 again, but again it didnt work, but the Recovery USB had recreated the Recovery Partition, so then restarted by pressing F8 (interesting that the new Recovery Partition looks quite different to the one on the Recovery USB by the way). Then instead of waiting for Windows updates, downloaded Windows 10 directly using the Windows Media Creator, and installed it immediately - this time it works. But then wanted to transfer the OS to a Samsung Evo 840 SSD - prevented by the Magician software which does not recognise Windows 10, so had to use Macrium Reflect, cloning all the partitions as they are. But it came out rather funnily because there is an extra drive which is very small, and the Recovery Partition was cloned over and takes up too much room, so am thinking of using Partition Wizard to shrink the Recovery Partition down to minimum size (would it work anyway having been moved to the SSD?) and merging it with C (where Onedrive is). But that leaves this odd Drive G, which is very small and appears to be empty (it contains an empty folder titled Recovery). This is all idle experimentation, when in fact the Windows 10 is now working pretty well on the SSD, though the Celeron processor peaks at 100% making the machine freeze quite often when asked to do many things - prob not a very good process...

Answer:Windows 10 on old Satellite Pro L450

Correction - these are the views of This PC and Computer Management before and after - the first is the Disk before migration, with Onedrive on Drive C, and the Recovery Partion on Drive D.

The second is the Disk after migration, the third is This PC after migration (including detail of the MicroSD storage added afterwards). System G, on exploring, contains a folder named 'Recovery', which when opened is empty.

Data D contains the Recovery Partition. Onedrive Data is in C.

In a couple of days I will be receiving a new ThinkPad L450. I am aware that I will probably get a Recovery CD or a way to recover the system and restore the computer to it's new factory state. But what if I want to wipe the drive clean and do a fresh install of Windows 7? This is my personal preference. This way nothing goes on my computer that I don't want or need. I tend to keep my computer extremely lean if you know what I mean.  The problem is if the time comes that I want to wipe and perform a fresh install of Windows, how do I go about making sure I have downloaded all the necessary drivers for the L450? I already have downloaded many drivers from the Lenovo site, but I simply can't be sure at this point in time that I have downloaded all the necessary drivers. Is there a way or a method I can use to make sure I have all the needed drivers? Seems to me there should be a piece of software that a guy could get from the web that would run on your computer and print a list of all the necessary drivers that particular computer needs to function. Can  you help me out?

Answer:I'm getting a new ThinkPad L450 and was wondering ...

Well I've done a lot of research on the web and I have come across many different ways a person can obtain the correct drivers. I've printed some of this info so I think I will be okay.

Hello! I have had my laptop on service for a simple fix of the USB ports and when i got the laptop back the service center had updated my BIOS to ver 1.16 (jduj06ww.exe) according to levono support site. Problem is that I need to have BIOS ver 1.06 flashed into my laptop because of later versions the DVMT pre-allocated size to 128mb and it wont work with OS X. When i try the BIOS flash file ver 1.06 from the lenovo support site (jduj01ww.exe) the laptop reboot and when the flash process is about to start i simply get the "secure flash authentication failed" message and the laptop reboot.And yes i have rollback enables in the security setting in the BIOS settings. Is there something i have missed? or is the BIOS just locked for downgrading? Someone have any advice? I need to get below BIOS ver 1.12 at least i think but 1.06 would be the best. Is there a way to flash the bios from DOS and force it? Regards Fred.

Answer:L450 BIOS Downgrade help!

Hi Spreast,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums!
 
Pull out your CMOS battery and keep it out for an hour or so, with the main battery also removed. Your BIOS should go back to the one that the machine had been shipped with in the first place once you put everything back.
 
Please let me know whether the above step helped you.

Hi,

I have a broken DC socket its on a lead that plugs on to the M/B , the problem I have I rang Topaz the official spares partner for Toshiba and I was told although it?s on a plug you cannot buy it separately ,you have to purchase the whole board.

They said it Toshiba's policy, so has anyone got any idea where I may get one?

Answer:Need new DC socket for my Satellite L450-136

I saw such parts on eBay. Check it a bit and try to find the right one for your Satellite notebook. As far as I know it is soldered on the mainboard so for exchange you need someone who can do it for you.

Of course whole notebook must be disassembled. I don?t know if you can do this alone. What do you think about that?

Hi ian guest,

Unfortunately your notebook doesn?t have HDMI output so you have to use the VGA port on your computer. The most TVs also have this VGA port so you can use a VGA cable to connector your notebook to TV.

If you have done this start both devices and select the VGA (PC) channel on your TV. Press FN+F5 key combination to switch between monitors (internal and external one).

Hi

I have just bought a second hand L450, I had it working fine just after getting it I shut it down correctly now have no power,no lights apart from green light to advise charger plugged in, when removed nothing.

Wont power on with or without power cord have tried all things reseating memory, hard drive and removing battery and pressing power button - still nothing

can anyone help please

Thanks
Ellen

Answer:Satellite L450 No Power

Did Windows Shut down completely? Or did it go into Hibernation or Suspend mode?

You could try resetting the system.

Remove the Battery and AC Adapter, hold the power button down for a few seconds to draw any excess power, then plug in the AC Adapter and see how that goes. If still no luck, you can try leaving the notebook without power overnight.

You could also try removing one of the RAM (Memory) Modules as well. One of them may be causing problems.

If still no good, you may need to send it to a Toshiba Repair Center for a quote.
