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.)

Answer: T430 + Ericsson F5521gw

Did you get the WWAN cards from Lenovo? As you have discovered, that is required. There is a device whitelist that ThinkPads enforce.

I recently bough a T420s laptop with a Ericsson F5521gw WWAN card. The GPS function seems to be working, but it is a little bit slow in finding satellites. ThinkVantage GPS program doesn't let me choose any other GPS mode than "standalone". I have checked from F5521gw's data sheet that it supports Assisted GPS (A-GPS) function. Does Lenovo support this function or is there some other possibilites to enable A-GPS?

Answer:A-GPS with Ericsson F5521gw

As far as I know, you need special software to support A-GPS.  The Lenovo software supports stand-alone mode only.  I suppose you can buy other software that uses A-GPS, but I don't know for sure.

Hello Natash I am no expert with this WWAN adapter, but I do have experience with mobile device not detecting APN and it could cause you not engaging to your Service Provider Network. If convinence, perhaps take your notebook to your mobile network service provider and let them see is it your Ericsson adapter do not auto detect the APN or SIM card version not compatiable with your adapter as SIM card have evolute a lot during this few years. Hope it helps Cheers and wish you got your

Hi Lenovo, I tried to browse through the entries of the forum first, but it seems that you have yet failed to respond to the fact, that the build in WWAN card in some of your latest Thinkpad models, the Ericsson F5521gw only negotiates speeds of 7.2mbit despite the facts that the Ericsson card supports 21mbit and that my provider in Denmark (TDC) does support 21mbit HSDPA downloads. My thinkpad is a T420s 4174-P4G. But I am quite sure that it's not related to the specidic model. I can see that X220 users have reported this as well in Sweden on a Telia network that also supports 21mbit. Now if I take out my TDC sim card and put it into a USB-Modem such as the Huawei E372, I instantly get a 21mbit connection to the TDC network. But it's not elegant to use an external USB modem, when you purchased the top-model with a build in WWAN card that states that 21mbit is supported. I find it great pitty, that I have hardware in my super cool Thinkpad T420s that supports 21mbit, but that your driver appearantly blocks the speed to only 7.2mbit. Anybody from Lenovo who care to comment on this ? Thx Other than this I am very happy with my T420. The noisy fan issue is the biggest problem with thos model, but we are dealing with this issue in another thread.

Answer:Ericsson F5521gw 7.2mbit only

I have been using an F5521gw, in both an T420 and an X220, with two 3G ISPs (one on the 850MHz band and the other on the 900MHz band) in Australlia that support HDPA+ operation and I can achieve raw link speed connections at 21 Mbps with both of them, so whatever your issue is, its not solely with the F5521gw driver.

Does anyone know if the Ericsson F5521gw would be compatible with an X260 running Windows 10? I've got an X220 which I have been looking to replace (primarily for a higher resolution display). Neither the X260 or X1C are exactly what I want (I like the flexibility having a spare battery but would prefer NMVe if I was spending a lot of money). Therefore I am wondering, as a half-way approach, I could buy the cheapest i7 X260 and swap over my MBB adapter (I only have a 3G data contract) and 1TB Crucial M500 drive. I know I had trouble with the F5521gw on Windows 7 (there were some workarounds) but since Win 8.1 and now Win 10 I've had no problems. TIA!Simon

Answer:X230i + Ericsson F5521gw fault

My assume is the card f5521gw isn't whitelisted in the newest BIOS dispite this card (even with the different p/n or FRU) is listed in the current (!) fru_bom file for the x230. Possibly it was supported in the initial BIOS versios. Currently the half sized card Ericsson h5321gw is listed in the fru_bom file.

Hello, a first time Thinkpad user here. I'm having a problem with my new laptop, X220 (model 4290W1B). The specifications are these: i5-2520M, 4GB, X25-M (upgraded), 12.5" HD Premium LED 1366x768, Intel HD 3000, a/g/n WLAN, BT, Sec. Chip, FP, HD-Cam. I also purchased the Ericsson F5211gw module for wireless WWAN / 3g connections. The wireless network part of it is working fine, but the GPS doesn't work.The module was installed by the reseller, so I assume the antennas etc. are installed correctly. I have installed drivers for the card from Lenovo support (and system update) and installed Thinkvantage GPS utility. In device manager I have device "F5521gw Mobile Broadband GPS Port (COM5)" with an exclamation point. Device status box has this information: "This device cannot start. (Code 10)". When I try to start the GPS utility it doens't start and gives this error:"The GPS NMEA COM port is not available. You need to check the following things.- Another GPS application is using the COM port.- Com port is disabled. You can enable the COM port in Device Manager" I have no other GPS applications or haven't disabled the COM port. I think there isn't any options about the GPS in BIOS (I have disabled stuff I don't need) I have tried uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling them. I also have reinstalled Windows 7 (unrelated reason) but the problem has persisted. Any assistance would be welcomed.

I have a X220 Tablet with the Ericsson F5521gw WWAN? option. It seems to connect just fine, however after 30 mins - 3 hrs, it always disconnects from the mobile network. A red cross appears in Access Connections, and the Windows 7 network icon shows that it is "connected" but there is "no internet access". It is impossible to reconnect using either Access Connections or the Windows tool. If I try, it gives me an error about not being able to find the network. If I try Fn + F5, I sometimes can turn the WWAN off but not back on, and sometimes I cannot even turn it off. None of this helps me reconnect. The only way to be able to reconnect is to shutdown + turn back on / restart / sleep + wake. One interesting thing I've noticed is that the mobile network makes a difference. Using the "3" network (which I'm on a contract for), it disconnects after 30mins - 3 hrs. However, if I swap the SIM card to a Telstra network prepay card, it can hold the connection much more reliably. I've only noticed that it dropped the connection once after about 3 hrs. On subsequent testing, leaving the computer on overnight etc, it seems to stay connected to Telstra. I've tried the following trouble shooting steps without any success:- I verified the correct orientation of the SIM card on these forums- I've uninstalled access connections / used earlier versions of the Ericsson driver- I've reimaged the computer using the Lenovo factory install DVDs- I've asked "3" for a new SIM card to...

Having E320 (1298-3RG) with currently available driver version 6.4.1.6 from 08 Jul 2011 from Lenovo support site there seems to be incomplete mobile operator data for Finland. Specifically, my operator Saunalahti utilizes Elisa network and is actually the part of Elisa company. The problem is the current driver from Lenovo doesn't recognize SIM card automatically and manual setup offers just single possible item in the list for Finland - Elisa. Saunalahti has its own MNC (21, Elisa has MNC 05), and such manually edited connection (replacing with the right AP settings) is detected as roaming, which works but has two major issues: Every time a user has to accept roaming warning dialog before connection is actually made (Saunalahti always been on Elisa network thus the setup is NOT actually roaming)Automatical WLAN-WWAN connection switching doesn't work, probably due to roaming issue with (it just silently fails without roaming dialog).Tried with two Saunalahti SIM cards with the same result, both having unlimited data plan and working fine. BTW Toshiba has newer v.6.5.x.x drivers according to http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/wlan/.Could someone provide the hints how to fix these issues, maybe editing the driver configuration file(s) or has a link to the latest F5521gw driver that will work in pair with Lenovo Access Connections, thanks!

HI all,I just bought an X220 with the following specifications:   Lenovo ThinkPad X220 4291 - Core i7 2620M / 2.7 GHz - RAM 4 GB - HDD 320 GB - - HD Graphics 3000 - 3G Mobile Broadband- no service included- Gigabit Ethernet - WLAN : 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 - TPM - 12.5" LED TFT 1366 x 768 ( WXGA ) I made a clean installation, since I switched to an SSD drive, and installed all drivers as suggested by the lenovo update tool.I also installed the wireless WAN drivers available in the lenovo support page: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-77280.html My problem is that I'm unable to stablish a WAN connection with the broadband modem. In window's device manager a device named "Ericsson F5521gw" appears as working properly, and a WAN adapter is listed as a network adapter and in the lenovo communication tool. The problem is that if I click "connect" it only lists available wifi networks, and I don't see an option or program to stablish such WAN connection. I am missing something? I notice that the PCI Express Mini Card slot is empty, so I am wondering if the modem is not really included, even if it appears as so in the specifications and it also appears as a working device.  David

Answer:X220 problem with wireless WAN-Ericsson F5521gw

 
Hi dvallet and welcome to the forum,
 
Did you turn on the radio for the adapter? Press Fn-F5 (require hotkey feature set) and turn on Wireless WAN radio.
Are you using Lenovo Access Connections? Did the WWAN work before the clean install?
 
If you never used it before you could download and install the Lenovo broadband connect app and try to activate.
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-70946
 
If you find F5521gw in device manager PCI-E adapter is installed in your computer.

I'd really appreciate if someone could lend me hand with this issue, I'm going a little crazy trying to fix it. The Ericsson F5521gw WAN Module is detected and installed by the OS(Win 10 64bit) and Lenovo hardware scan picks it up but Fn+F5 utility won't switch it on, I can click the button till the cows come home to no avail, the WLAN and BT switches work fine though. I have tried cycling the hardware switch a few times and making sure the WAN module is enabled in the BIOS(it is) but nothing helps. Tried installing all the latest drivers but no luck. The only thing I can think of is I updated from Win 7 64bit to Win 10 64bit, WAN worked perfectly on Win 7, can't remember ever using it successfully in Win 10, I may have though. One thing I have noticed is no matter how many times I switch BT off it switches back on with a reboot.Is there perhaps any manual method or app apart from Fn+F5 to enable the WAN?Has anyone had similar issues after a Win 10 update, if so any fix possible?

Hello, Onthebutton1. What is the version of the wwan card firmware?2. Are there unknown devices in the Device Manager?3. As there isn't win10 support for the x220 officially, Lenovo drivers and apps are absent for this laptop. So, is the Hotkey Features package installed?4. Are Lenovo Settings Dependency package from the support site and Lenovo Settings metro app from the ms store installed?5. Any chance Airplan mode is enabled?Anyway, win10 should control the wwan radio itself, w/out Fn+F5 hotkey.

Hello, I have a user with an X220, running Windows 7 SP1 (x64) with Access Connections 5.84, utilising the Ericsson F5521GW WWAN card. The user is experiencing random disconnects when using the 3G and as this is a remote user, he heavily relies on this service. We have had our supplier send the user a new SIM card, in case that was faulty but this has not resolved the issue. The obvious next step would be to replace the WWAN card but again, he is a remote user and would need to come in to head office or send it in, which will not be ideal. I was wondering if anyone has encountered this issue and if so, how it was resolved. Kind RegardsBarry J.

There is long discussion about that http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/X-Series-ThinkPad-Laptops/X220-3G-mobile-broadband-problem-with-F5521gw/... In short: the F5521gw module is buggy, Lenovo does not care, Ericsson no longer supports these modules. The only known solution is to replace it with Sierra Wireless (Gobi 3000) one.

When on mobile internet, I have good internet access and VPN works fine, but the outlook-exchange communication doesnt work.

We have tested also with older Ericsson drivers and firmware. No luck. We have tested to same "F5521gw" laptops with several different usb hsdpa dongles, with wlan cards and lan cards and also with other Lenovo laptops which have built-in Qualcomm Gobi and Ericsson F3507g hsdpa-modules. With all other network connections Outlook works fine, only Ericsson F5521gw is causing us gray hair. We would really appreciate if someone has any clue how to solve this problem.  btw. Operating system is Windows 7 Professional 32-bit and our hsdpa service provider is Finish Elisa.

I'm thinking about purchasing the above 3G card (either for Lenovo X220 or L520) but haven't been able to find out whether it supports fully automatic connecting or not. That is, I would not want to use any "connection app" and click Connect etc. each time the laptop is booted, but instead just boot up the laptop and start surfing (using 3G/WWAN). Is that possible with the above card and Lenovo-provided drivers/software?

Hi there guys, You've pushed out a 7.1.1.0 driver update for the F5521gw card for the T430 but haven't updated the T420 systems for the same card. The drivers from the T430 work on my T420s so out of interest why hasn't there been an update for us guys ? Be nice to think we weren't being left behind, we aren't even barely a generation old yet !

I've got a T430 with Windows 10 and my WWAN module is not showing up right. In the device manager it has got an exclamation mark and windows 10 is unable to install the driver on its own. I have read this thread which recommends to downgrade windows 10 in the firstplace, then upgrade the firmware and update back to windows 10 or use the Firmwareupdate tool which later got updated to windows 10. My Problem is, that i am cant downgrade and the new firmware updater for the T430 isnt working. Same with the driver update. Basically i have tried everything. The new driver update, the old one for windows 7/8/8.1, the new firmware updater, the old one.All i got was the error logs provided below. I really would like to use the WWAN module but it seems, i cant get it to work. What seems wierd to me, is that if i deactivate the module, it is showing up under "Network and Internet" but if i activate it, it is gone. Spoiler (Highlight to read)??And while the Network module isnt working, the gps module is showing up without a problem and is working fine. Sounds to me like a software problem. If there is anything i should test or if you need some more logs, i am happy to help and get this fixed soon.

Hi, Recently bought a T430 (Without Optimus). All's good except the Laptop Temp. The left Palm rest seems to get un usually warm, no matter what OS I am on. Its a dual boot by the way, Win 7 + Ubuntu 12.04.2. With Ubuntu or CentOS or Scientific Linux, the laptop gets unusually warm...The temp monitoring utility (lm_sensors) says that its at about 45 C. I get the same temp reading on Win 7 too, but somehow, the laptop just feels more warm with Linux than Win 7.As of right now, I am on Win 7 (for past 4-5) hours.....did some browsing, MS Sec Essentials did a full disk scan, I saw some youtube vids and was toying with some Perl Scripts, and the temp is at 45C, and the left palm rest is quite warm. Its warm enough that I have to stop typing every few minutes  Has anyone else noticed this issue? Is there a work around to this issue? Is there something I should worry about ? Please let me know. I installed the new updates a month ago. This problem though, has been there since a while. I searched the forum and found that another user who had a similar issue was told to upgrade the BIOS from 1.6 something to 2.50. I am running at 2.52 as shown below. BIOS VendorLENOVOReleaseDate02-14-2013BIOSG1ET92WW (2.52 )SMBIOS VersionLENOVO - 2520Video cardIntel(R) HD Graphics 4000 Card memory2,112.00 MBProviderIntel CorporationCard version9.17.10.2843 08-21-2012Sound cardRealtek High Definition Audio Driver providerRealtekDriver version6.0.1.6710...

Answer:Thinkpad T430 gets significantly warm on Win 7 as well as Linux. How about a fellow T430 user ?

In my experience, Linux isn't as good with power management as Windows. 45 degrees sounds about right for a current-gen Intel processor due to Turbo Boost causing temperature spikes as you use your system normally.As for the warm left palmrest, the hard drive sits under there, so maybe the drive just tends to produce more heat. Assuming you have a conventional hard drive, give it a defrag to reduce operating stress (and hence power consumption and heat output).

Hi,Yesterday I've installed F5521GW modem into my x220t and after downloading some drivers found on forum it worked fine. Then I decided to do autoupdate, it found some drivers related to WWAN adapter (GPS, "Lenovo Mobile access" and I guess few more) and now I'm stuck to like few minutes (around three?) of internet and after that wireless WAN radio turns off, just like an unused WiFi card. It happens every time, when connection is made and is obviously in use too.  I've turned off "Turn mobile radio off when disconnected" in Access connection, moreover when WAN card turns off while using Access connection it hangs. I'm connecting using Windows Network and sharing center, "Mobile broadband" application leads me only to some kind of activation (but I have a working, activated service...) and nothing more, and "Lenovo mobile Access" gives me some registration page, I guess for some kind of Lenovo branded internet provider, plus some tray icon saying that no mobile broadband is detected How to get rid of this automatic WAN card shutdown? It worked great until I decided to do an update...

Hello, I have an E220s, and have recently bought an Ericsson WWAN F5521gw module (FRU: 60Y3279).According to the manual (and judging by how the card looks), it connects to an antenna through two cables: main + auxiliary (just like the WIFI module). My laptop didn't have any such cables, beside of those already used by the WIFI module (I've opened and removed the top panel to make sure. Really no antenna cables).Just to experiment, I've disconnected the aux cable from the WIFI module and connected it to the main connection of the WWAN module (so now I have two modules, each connected only at the main connection). It worked - both connections operate properly (with a SIM card for the WWAN, of course). Is this supposed to be a satisfactory solution, or should I worry about them not being connected through the AUX as well?If they indeed need the AUX connections too, where are the WWAN antenna connectors supposed to be? Thanks in advance,Daniel

Answer:Does anyone know much about Sony Ericsson P900s?

click hereThere should be software to do it from there. You dont say what P900 model you have so I cannot be too much more specific as for all I know you could have a P990i.

I have a P910i and have connected it to my laptop using the desktop stand that it comes with (USB).When I try to connect it to my desktop PC, it doesn't work. I just get messages saying 'no phone connected'.I've tried uninstalling and re-installing but still the same response

Answer:Why won't my Sony Ericsson Connect to my PC

Does the software allow you to select connection type? The Nokia PC Suite is apparently incapable of finding out for itself, you have to select serial/usb/infra/bluetooth - maybe the Ericsson software is the same.

I bought my t500 when it was few months old and I have been using it over a year. Yesterday I decided to remove intel turbo memory chip, because after installing a SSD it was really slowing down boot time. So I took a look into a HW maintenance guide, took a screwdriver and opened the computer. And then, what a suprise: I found an ericsson F3507g card installed. I didn't know I had one, because it never showed in device manager. I'm using win7 64bit.I tried installing drivers, etc., but keep geting the same error: Mobile broadband device not found.Windows simply doesn't find it. Any ideas?

Hey guys!



I recently got a Sony Ericsson Spiro with the included Headphones, but they are the sort which don't get on with my ears. I have some old headphones like THESE ONES but they are a different connection type.



http://www.hardwarezone.com.my/img/data/nnews/2007/6577/File/earphones_l.jpg





The only way I can get those (above) headphones to work is if I unplug them halfway and put the single plug in my Spiro which is the only way I can connect them, which leaves the wires too short like this...



http://www.itechnews.net/wp-content/uploads/2008/02/sony-nwz-a720-series-walkman.jpg





So basically are there any headphones out there which I can get a long cable for (more than a few cm's like the above link ) which have a single cable connecter (like the above link) for my Spiro? They also have to be like these... (the soft type, not the hard type)...



http://regmedia.co.uk/2008/10/29/se_is800_2.jpg





Thanks and please help!

After removing Sony Ericsson PC Suite from my computer (using Add/Remove programs) I noticed under Device Manager / Network Adaptors that I have exclamation symbols alongside ?Sony Ericsson Device 046 USB (NDIS 5) RRNetCap Miniport? and ?Sony Ericsson Device 716 USB (NDIS 5) RRNetCap Miniport?I have checked the registry (Regedit) and found many, many entries relating to Sony Ericsson. Is it safe to delete all these entries relating to Sony Ericsson? And if so should this then remove any mention of Sony in Device Manager / Network?

Answer:Sony Ericsson Suite

You should be able to "Uninstall" the Sony Ericsson network adapter within Device Manager. If there is a lot of dross remaining, one option would be to reinstall the Sony Ericsson PC Suite, install the "Revo Uninstaller" application and then use that to uninstall the Suite and scan for and remove remaining registry entries.

I am having trouble getting the Sony Ericsson PC Suite to run on my Vista PC.
I have downloaded the latest version, which S.E. have assured me is Vista-compatible, and tried running the install file.
I get a warning to ensure all phones are disconnected. I have not connected my phone yet.
I then get a message asking for a reboot. I do this.
When my PC reboots, I cannot find any reference to the PC Suite on my PC. Nothing in Program Files, nothing in Programs and Features, nothing anywhere.
I have contacted S.E. and they assure me that the program is Vista-compatible, and sent me a guide on how to sync my phone (Assuming that the software works!).

I have tried running the install as Administrator. It does exactly the same.

Does anyone have any advice on how to get this working, so I can sync/backup my phone info, and transfer my data off the phone?

Try reloading the driver in compatibility mode. I have a X201 and still have to use the Windows 7 driver for my Gobi WLAN (as Lenovo never wrote a windows 8 one let alone one for 10). It works fine for me (but I do have an older model than you).

Hi,  I am trying to do an installation with our own Windows 7 (Enterprise SP1 64bit) instead of the Windows 7 Professional coming from Lenovo, for our x240.    I get everything else installed conveniently, but for the Ericsson, I get it installed, and it sees the mobile broadband modem, but in the control panel I get the indication of the GPS as COM7, but with a question mark and the error 10 or the error 31.   I tried both the SCCM drivers (although we use LANDesk, more flexible) and manual installation, still the same. I even tried on a factory computer to uninstall the drivers and then reinstall them, but there it seems to work, so I am starting to wonder if the problem is not the fact of using Windows 7 Enterprise (though it seems to make no sense).     Any suggestion, if someone has already installed Windows 7 Enteprise on those laptops, would be appreciated...    Thanks,                                     Alessandro

Answer:Ericsson WAN card used overseas?

mailxiaodan wrote:Can I use the Ericsson WAN functionality with a SIM card that is NOT ATT? e.g., overseas?Mostly yes, but it depends to some extent on how any particular 3G provider chooses to approach their network access control.  Some will only allow access via hardware they have sold. You will also need to check that the 3G services in your overseas target area operate on frequency bands that are supported by the Ericsson card. Cheers, Bill .

If AT&T truly have that WWAN card locked, you have to either find a way to unlock it, or buy an unlocked WWAN card (best bought from Lenovo if you don't want to hack the BIOS). ThinkPad users have unlocked other WWAN cards with DC-unlocker. They don't list this Ericsson card so I would ask.

Greetings, I have an annoying problem with my new T400s (type 2808-D4G): the built-in Ericsson 3G (UMTS) adapter always disappears when the machine returns from standby. Actually, the problem was more severe before when the adapter would not show up at all under Windows 7 64bit (which is what I am running). I could fix this by disabling the power management for PCI in the BIOS. Now, the adapter is always there after a cold boot. But still, after the machine returns from standby, all entries in the device manager that relate to the 3G adapter are gone, and as a consequence of this, WWAN networking is no longer an option. A reboot fixes this, and then 3G WWAN works just fine - until the next standby. I have all the latest drivers installed, plus I installed the latest BIOS (which "system update" did not install). I suspect this is a bug with the power management driver under Windows 7. Does anyone have the same experiences? thanks, Joachim

Answer:Ericsson 3G adapter (UMTS) disappears

The symptoms are known if the module is freshly installed. In this case a  BIOS init (F9) helps.There was a webpage stating this, but I can't find it at the moment.In a nutshell: the BIOS passed the POST already before the adapter is active.Pressing F9 in BIOS (load defaults) seems to force the detection of the module. Maybe a Microsoftupdate is to blame.This one is suspect: KB949764 Also the installing instruction (for the WWAN driver) reads:http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-73681the following patch should be installed. KB948278 Last not least, as you mentioned the PM Driver (not the App "Energymanager") should be uptodate (1.60 I think) There are several dependencies (shown on the Access Connections downloadlink): - Power management DRIVER- Network drivers- Access Connections- Hotkey Utility- DotNet Framework Also check that a power profile is chosen in the Energymanager, there is no Default after install. I hope that is some useful information and one of those hints will work for you. Cheers ...
