2017/5th Gen X1 - US WWAN?

Question: 2017/5th Gen X1 - US WWAN?

Hi there- At http://psref.lenovo.com/Product/ThinkPad_X1_Carbon_5th_Gen it doesn't appear you can order a US Region laptop with WWAN. Are the US models WWAN upgradable? Am I simply missing something? We nabbed a couple 20HR000FU but there no WWAN slot and no antenna pigtails. I'm guessing we're sending these things back? What should be our strategy for getting laptops with functioning WWAN? Thanks!Ryan

Preferred Solution: 2017/5th Gen X1 - US WWAN?

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.)

Hi, How can I find out if my Carbon X1 5th generation has WWAN and antenna (model: 20HRS0060)? The shop where I bought stated that it had WWAN, but I can't use it (Windows 10 doesn't recognize it or I don't have a driver?) tnx in advance!

I had been reading the new review of the T470 from Notebookcheck and something caught my eye; they specifically mention more than once that the WWAN slot can be used for an SSD; http://www.notebookcheck.net/Lenovo-ThinkPad-T470-Core-i5-Full-HD-Notebook-Review.198130.0.html"Between the WiFi module and the 2.5-inch slot is also a free M.2-2242 slot, which can either be used for a WWAN module (antennas prepared) or an SSD""The available storage solutions for the ThinkPad T470 are quite interesting. Inside the chassis is a 2.5-inch slot attached via PCIe x2. This slot can either be equipped with a conventional 2.5-inch hard drive (HDD or SSD, up to 7 mm high) or an M.2-SSD (2280), which is sitting in the 2.5-inch tray via adapter. It is also possible to implement another SSD in the M.2-2242 slot. Lenovo's spec sheet, for example, lists a 128 GB model or Intel's Optane solution (16 GB), which can act as cache in combination with a conventional hard drive."I'm hesitant to assume this will apply to the new X1 since it doesn't have an option for HDD and therefore no need to configure the WWAN port to support an SSD for caching. Can anybody test/confirm this? I've read documentation on the new X1 Spec sheet and hardware maintenance and it mentions nothing about support for additional devices in the WWAN slot. I'd kill to be able to have a separate SSD for a linux install so I don't have to mess with bootloaders every time windows has a major update.

Hi everyone, i have quite a few questions so i'll post separate threads rather than pollute one thread. I'm wanting to get something a lot better than windows defender. Comcast is my ISP so i can get NIS for free. As most of you are aware of Norton hasn't been doing a great job these days. There has been multiple vulnerabilities in its products that actually decreases the security of windows. Still NIS still does a pretty good job of scoring pretty well in the various test in terms of protection. I was thinking on going with either bitdefender or KIS but of course i would have to pay for those. If you were me would opt for NIS because its still pretty dang good and worlds better than bit defender or would you opt for one of the better products like KIS or bitdefender?

Good evening everyone. Thanks for your access to this thread. I hope you to read and answer for this question.

I want to ask everyone that which software should I use for keeping security of my PC.

Now I am using Bitdefender Total Security 2017 as main anti-malware soft on my main desktop PC.
And also I was using F-secure SAFE as anti-malware soft on my PC until last week.

Yesterday, I heard that new Avast Antivirus 2017 was released, and new Avast Free is including behaviour scanning system.

I am having trouble deciding which software should I use as anti-malware soft.
Please tell me about your recommend.

I think that...

?Protection features
Better : Bitdefender 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017

?Performance and speed
Lighter : Avast Free 2017 > F-secure SAFE > Bitdefender 2017

?the risk of false positive trouble
Bigger risk : F-secure SAFE > Avast Free 2017 > Bitdefender 2017

?SSL (HTTPS) Scanning is enable without fake SSL certificate to browser
Unnecessary fake certificate : Avast Free, F-secure
Need fake certificate : Bitdefender Total

F-secure SAFE is the very nice solution as protection from malwares and keeping speedy PC. But it is having big risk of false positive ratings; especially the website blocking is not good with many many false positive ratings. And, sometimes slow down my PC.

Bitdefender Total Security 2017 is the best solution as protection from malwares. This software is providing users very nice anti-malware solu... Read more

Answer:Avast Free 2017 vs F-secure SAFE vs Bitdefender Total Security 2017

Quick question, why Bitdefender Total Protection? Do you need ALL those additional features, or looking for an Antivirus only, because there are Bitdefender Antivirus Plus and Free versions.

What about other protection software like Emsisoft Anti-Malware/Internet Security or ESET Nod32 Antivirus/Internet Security?

Hello, Guys!
I'm new on this forum but I Really Really like this good Forum
So I had Emsisoft for couple of months now
But Recently I've switched over to Avast Premier Beacuse I've never used Avast before So I wanted to try It out
But now I'm without any AV As I do not know what to Install Avast or Emsisoft!
I have licences for both So thats not the problem
Thanks In Advance And btw This forum really nice.
 

Answer:Avast Premier 2017 Vs Emsisoft Internet Security 2017

Both have excellent protection functions, but certainly they are two different security solutions.
I think the choice of one or the other one is really subjective, I've used Emsisoft for many years and it is my first choice

A couple of years ago I moved myself and some of the fam from Apple Everything to Windows 10. Yesterday however, I bought an new 2017 iPad. I really love the Surface devices, so why?
LEAVING THE PLATFORM BECAUSE OF WINDOWS MOBILE
First, because Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform. So rather than living and breathing completely and happily inside the Microsoft ecosystem, I am now forced to diversify and go elsewhere. This really is a big deal, and changes my thinking from the unthinkable (leaving the MS ecosystem) to the possible (shifting back towards Apple). That being the case, why should I then buy a Microsoft Surface tablet (I was planning to buying a new Surface Pro M3) when I an now FORCED to be open to Apple and Android?
EASE OF MOVING PLATFORMS
Second, Microsoft have made my leap back to Apple so easy, because they have done what Apple and Google have refused to do, which is to make their software available on the others' platforms. Thus the transition to iPad is easy. For example, Word and PowerPoint are effectively free (via my 365 account that I will not be renewing at full cost next time; I will use the academic version which costs me almost nothing). Outlook on iPad is a great app (better than on PC platform). Lots of other apps that Microsoft that I use are also really nice on iPad (e.g. Wunderlist) and made the transition really simple and clean.
FACEBOOK
Third, the Facebook app on iPad is ... Read more

Answer:I did the unthinkable and chose a 2017 iPad over a 2017 Surface Pro M3

Microsoft are no longer supporting the phones that are in our house, we are being forced from that platform
Can't make sense of that. Presumably you have really old windows phones that no longer get updates?
And what does that have to do with what tablet you use? Windows has timeline, cloud clipboard and a whole host of platform agnostic features coming this fall, so Windows will play nice with android or ios (better than those OSes play with any other).
You don't even need your tablet, desktop and phone to be the same platform. You just need the same services, which for MSFT, exist on every platform.

Hi Guys, I've got a Lenovo ThinkPad X61s 7669-3KG  L7500(1.6GHz), 2GB RAM, 160GB 5400rpm HD, 12.1in 1024x768 LCD, Intel X3100, Intel 802.11agn wireless, Bluetooth, Modem, 1Gb Ethernet, Secure chip, Fingerprint reader, Intel Turbo Memory, 4c Li-Ion, WinVista Business 32 which is a non-WWAN laptop, although it has a built-in slim card slot. Now, I'm wondering if this particular notebook can be upgraded to WWAN? If yes - which parts must I buy?Do I have to have only 3G modem card or any additional antennas or slots? Please let me know.Radek

Answer:X61s-non WWAN upgrade to WWAN

It really depends on if your system has antennas for WAN.  If so, there will be two wires that look like the ones plugged into the wireless LAN card except they will be marked one red and one blue.  If you have them, you can look in the Hardware Maintenance Manual for the part numbers of the cards for this system.

I custom ordered my X200 and it got delivered yesterday. When you go to the X200 customizing, it already shows that it comes with AT&T 3G. Anyways, I call tech support yesterday, and they were useless. They couldn't even find my order in the system. I was on the train, so I couldn't open the keyboard at the moment, but I did when I got home and didnt see any WWAN card, but I wasn't exactly sure of what i was looking for. Anyways, the box it came in has the configuration on the outside. I took a pic with my iPhone, so its crap - no macro settings - but if you can somehow read the blur, the 3rd option down is AT&T 3G. There is also "WWAN Misc Part", "WWAN Misc Parts", and "ATT Option". So I'm assuming it comes with the built in hardware. It came with an AT&T 3G sim card already in the machine.  However, the machine isn't detecting the hardware. FN+F5 only shows wifi & bluetooth. I go into the bios, and I don't see a WWAN option anywhere. I read somewhere that one guy had to update his bios to get it to show/work. I'm assuming my bios would already be updated though. Did they just not install the hardware?  I figured I would get better support here before calling them again   

Answer:X200 & AT&T 3G WWAN...Not detecting wwan

I have an X200 with AT&T WWAN and it works fine. A couple of things to check: My configuration shows = 42X6331 L1 WWAN Intg AT&T (3G); 42V8251 L1 COPT AT&T USA; 43Y3864 L! COPT WWAN MiscPartsIn the Thinkvantage - Mobile Broadband Connect - you should get a screen that has a "sign up" button and a "close" button. With the wireless power switch "on" (switch on left side of laptop) click the "signup" button. It will check the status of your card. If you have not signed up for service, it will NOT show you any signal strength, you must sign up for the service and the network has to put the ESN (Electronic Serial Number) of your card into the system for it to work. Do not try and use the AT&T Communications Manager software because it will not work with the Ericsson radio in the laptop. Just my experience.

Good evening everyone! Thank you for your access to here and reading my post.
Tonight, I want to ask you that how much the Avast Free Antivirus reaches some solid anti-malware software, which are the paid version.

Now I am using F-secure SAFE as Trial license on desktop PC, which is one of the mine.
It seems to nice for protect PC and F-secure SAFE is light despite it is one of the very strong scanning system as consumers.

But now, I am worrying about false blocking by browsing protection of F-secure SAFE.
In usually, f-secure is not making something to bad situation for me, I am feeling it.
But the Browsing protection feature of F-secure SAFE blocks websites too many times.
The most of sites,which were blocked by F-secure are obviously safe. Of cause, they are judged safe sites by other major antimalware soft (e.g. Avast, Bitdefender Total Security).

So I want to compare them; Avast Free Antivirus 2017 and F-secure SAFE 2017(or Internet Security 2017).
I want to ask you that which is the more strong software under the below situation...

1.
OS is Windows10 Home and updated with latest security patch.
2.
Main browser is the latest of Mozilla Firefox with ublock origin.
3.
If I use Avast Free 2017, I will configure some setting (e.g. File Shield, Mail Shield, Web Shield, and Behavior Shield) to aggressive security level. For example, I will configure by referring to this page avast! Optimal Protection settings by RejZoR​

Previously we wrote a long post about Best Laptops for Hackers, which included a run-down on the best laptops for programming and penetration testing (pen-testing). This article turned out to be very popular even though it wasn't exactly intended to be that, now we are proud to finally publish the long-requested article of 'Best Laptops for Video Game System Emulation'.

The idea of this post is to give an accurate summary of which laptops are suited for, or adept at emulating various consoles and their games, and which ones also can easily perform these duties, at the lowest possible cost.

Now obviously, the better hardware you have the better your system will be at emulating other hardware/software. That doesn't necessarily mean a more expensive laptop. Where the demands of hacking and pen-testing demand vital and significant internal storage, the prerequisites for game emulation are generally just a good graphics processor, and good RAM/CPU.

Your laptop should also be in good working order and not muddled with high-risk pirated downloads and large bits of video. To emulate efficiently, you should also have as little processes and programs running in order for the emulator to run smoothly.

Hi folks,I have a Thinkpad T500 (2081-CTO) with the internal AT&T WWAN adapter. The first thing I did when I got it was wipe the drive and install Windows 7. Now I am wishing I had paid a little more attention to the WWAN options. I seem to remember there was an offer to get a 30-day free trial period activation of the WWAN SIM that came installed in my computer. Does anybody know how I might do that or will I need to reload the system from my backup media? Also if somebody could give me a crash course as to how the WWAN connection works in general I'd appreciate it -- I've never used one before. How do I activate it and once I do does it just show up as another network connection (like a LAN port) or something?

Answer:WWAN for T450s

Forget Ericsson N5321, it is 3G only.  EM7355 is not supported in T450s so the choice is EM7345. Note that the EM7345 has firmware issues affecting reliability.

Question: WWAN for E431

can I install WWAN card to my thinkpad E431 (627734A). How and what type of WWAN should i used 













Solved!

Answer:WWAN for E431

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to inform you that your Lenovo ThinkPad E431 is not WWAN upgradeable as per Lenovo Support page.

To verify, WWAN upgradable models have the WWAN antennas installed from the factory. These will be red and blue wires (the Wi-Fi are typically white, black and grey or just black and grey depending on model). If you don't see the antenna leads, they haven't been installed.
 
If your machine is not WWAN upgradeable, it means your system was not shipped with WWAN antennas. You can get them and install it yourself, but it requires disassembling the system, which may cause damage to the machine and is not recommended.
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

Question: X61s WWAN

Since June 2008 I have an X61s witd embedded Vodafone WWAN. Until two weeks ago, there where no problems. Abaout to weeksago I´ve done an update of some component with the Lenovo update-Manager.Since this time, I have Problems wit the Vodafone connection.For example: I take the notebok out of of the docking-station, start the vodafone-connection program and it starts to ask for a PUK of the simcard. The Puk is a secial security-code- After entering the PUK,I put in the PIN and the connection is established. But, and that ist the problem, I do not receive an IP-adress and no standard-gateway. Even if I turn of my personal firewall, the XP-firewall it does not work. But not always, sometimes everthing is working.Today I had a long phonecall with the Vodafone-Hotline, we tried a lot of different things, but nothing really helped.So I reinstalled and installed the Sierra wirless drivers, but it does not help. Has somone the same problems and found an solution? Ore any ideas how I can get online when I´am not in my office? Thanks Rolf

Answer:where to buy WWAN for AT&T for X300

The AT&T card is made by Sierra Wireless, model MC8775.You can buy it as a Lenovo spare part (FRU#: 42T0931 or 42T0933) or on eBay, but even on eBay, make sure to get the Lenovo Branded MC8775 with the FRUs above. (X300 BIOS programmed to only let a handful of cards be installed)It is user replaceable, see Lenovo blogs for a Video that shows you how to install the card.I did the same thing. Ordered in-stock X300 and got the card on eBay.

Not before one of the major WWAN mini-PCI-E card suppliers come out with one!
 
My guess is that wont happen until some time during 2011.  The global population of working LTE systems is still quite small, with a lot of carriers not scheduling implementation until 2011 timeframes.

Question: WWAN Confusion

So I'm confused. I'm looking at an X240 and I see the Sierra GOBI 5000 upgrade option for $280 - that most people seem to be having no luck at getting to work with a Verizon account. Then I see the GOBI 5000 for Verizon for $199 in the accessories section - which I haven't been able to find much feedback on from actual Verizon users. So for the extra $80, what does the Sierra WWAN have to offer (other than GPS and LMA)? Is anyone currently using the GOBI 5000 for Verizon successfully? Are there any other WWAN options available that Verizon users have been able to use successfully with their ThinkPad's? I'm a newb to "mobile broadband ready" so any info is much appreciated. ~Mikk

Answer:WWAN Confusion

Gobi 5000 (actually Sierra em7355) supports multiple network types: LTE, HSPA+, GSM/GPRS/EDGE, CDMA. As well as positioning capabilities: Standalone GPS, A-GPS, GPS XTRA, Glonass. Definitely the key features for Verizon carrier subscribers are LTE and CDMA 1xRTT/EV-DO.

Answer:WWAN in X201s

the single spare cable you have is meant for the 3x3 mimo WIFI card or for  wireless usb.The wwan antennas are missing from your machine, you can use the spare antenna but is not the best solution being made for a different use.Better to buy a wwan antenna kit from ebay, that often is provided with the frontal sticker (to have the wwan led visible)Edit: I missed the 1440x900 part.There isn't an official part for this kind of screen housing, you can buy a generic couple of antennas (like the tyco ones) and (if you want) the original wwan sticker separately.

I've purchased nothing but Thinkpads since the late 90's, so I know my way around them, and I want this to work. Anyway, I purchased my new machine right before Christmas as part of the Black Friday specials.  As soon as I opened the machine to upgrade the memory and install the WWAN card, I noticed one of the two antenna connectors was missing (just bare wire strands), so off it went to depot repair the day after I got it. It took depot repair three unexcusable weeks to repair it, and I'm hoping I get a customer satisfaction survey so I can rip them to shreds.  I used to marvel at their efficiency and expertise when I'd send machines in... now it was like a bad SNL skit. Finally, my repaired machine arrived.  I cracked it open again to upgrade.  My first surprise was getting an 1802 error when installing the Gobi4000 card I purchased from Lenovo.  If you go to the specs for the T530, it plainly lists the Gobi4000 as a compatible WWAN upgrade, but tech support said it wasn't.  Being able to use LTE speeds was one of the big motivations for buying the machine, so this was a kick to the gut. So next, I purchased the Gobi3000 card from Lenovo (Sierra Wireless).  Again, this is what their site says to buy.  Long story short, evidently the Gobi3000 card is not compatible with Win8.  It gets past the 18...

I bought my x61 7764-CTO from a friend and I want to use AT&T's broadband but I don't want a card that sticks out of my laptop like they offer at AT&T.  I saw on the website that they have an integrated WWAN option when building a new X61.  Where can I get this module?

Hi, I have an Ericsson N5321 HSPA+ WWAN card from my old laptop and would like to install it in my X1 carbon 4th gen (20FC), do you know if it's possible? On the official site, only Sierra EM7345 is mentioned, but the connectors are the same. I don't mind if the Ericsson device doesn't support LTE. The X1 is WWAN-ready since it has the antennas in place. Thanks in advance!

Question: S10-3 WWAN ready?

Does anyone know if the S10-3 is WWAN ready? I read somewhere the S10-3T is WWAN ready with a 3G antenna already installed so only a WWAN mini pci-e card would be needed however I cannot find any information reagrding the S10-3 model.  I know theres an available mini pci-e slot available for the WWAN card but thats all I can find.

Question: RE: WWAN on X220T

Hi, I own a Thinkpad X220T, Mfg # 4296-2WU. My thinkpad has a sim card slot beneath the battery. I am wondering as to If I wish to use the mobile broadband service, how should I go about activating it on the X220T. I mean if it has the hardware, all that is required should be software activation. Please suggest.  Thanks in Advance. Ankit

Answer:RE: WWAN on X220T

Well assuming your sim card is active and has an active data plan associated with it, then yes, the rest is software. You shoudl be able to push Fn + f5 to bring up connections. From here your 3g radio should be one of the options you can turn on.

Question: X200s WWAN

I've been considering both an X200s and an X301 as the replacement for my X61s. Any idea what the situation is with the X200s and the integrated WWAN compatibility for Canadian models? I noticed that last week on the Lenovo website the X200s specs said that the laptop was "WWAN compatible". However, now it says, "None" in the WWAN section.On the other hand, the US models of the X200s all come compatible with WWAN. Thanks!

Answer:Install new WWAN

Hello and welcome,
 
The radio cards are whitelisted in the laptop's BIOS.  A card has to be a supported model AND have a Lenovo FRU number.  For instance, a generic 6250 would not work even if it is on the list for you laptop.  It would have to be a 6250 with firmware modified for Lenovo and marked with a 60Y3195 FRU number.
 
NOTE: I don't know if 6250/60Y3195 is supported on your hardware.  That's just an example.
 
You can consult the hardware maintenance manual or parts lookup page (depending on model) for your machine and get that infomation.

hi guys!

i have read some regarding wwan... but never have deal with it, if i want internet ina tablet i just hotspot from my phone....

i have 15 years using computers, i doit well enough, i mean i am not a programer, but i know how to format, reinstall windows, reinstall linux instal linux distros and repairing laptops...
but i am new to this...
a friend has a Elitebook 8460p, he discovered that behind his battery , it has a SIM card slot... and he wants to use it, he, and i, suspect that this is how it works.... you go to the telephone company buy a data plan with sim card, instal the WWAN module, conect the anthenna wires, install drivers, software, insert the SIM card... and now the laptop has internet all the time eny place that has gsm coverage....

this is how we think it works, or at leas what we can get from that /SIM slot...

are we right?

if so.. we only have to see the hp part number for the wann card, purchase it and thats it?

Question: T470 ssd and WWAN

Hello, I just ordered a second-hand T470 with a 256gb PCIe SSD and I plan on upgrading to a 500gb or 512gb SSD but trying to decide which way to go. I'm quite a novice regarding this stuff, so please forgive me. I think I read somewhere that due to the way the drive is connected a M.2 PCIe SSD may not be noticeably any better than a 2.5 SSD. Would that be correct?  I would be doing mostly basic small business computing- Excel (nothing complicated), Quickbooks, multiple browsers, Outlook, email, etc. The laptop is a t470, FHD touchscreen, i5-7300, 8gb, 256gb PCIe and I plan on adding and utilizing a WWAN card.I currently have a 3-yr old Samsung 840EVO 2.5 SSD in my T420 that I could possibly just use or could purchase a new Samsung 850EVO/Pro 2.5 SSD or 960EVO/ Pro M.2 PCIe. Any suggestions? Value is a factor. Also, I've read that only certain part numbers of the EM7455 WWAN card will work with the newer T470. Can anyone verify what I need to look for? Thanks for your help
