Hi everyon! Happy New Year. I received a new T400s at last week.OS is Windows 7 and my wireless LAN card is Intel WiFi Link 5300 AGN. It doesen't works well.It happens to disconnect network 5 ~ 10 minutes interval. I have two another notebook.They have no problems. What is the problem?What do I do?  

Answer:About Intel WiFi Link 5300 AGN

I'm having the same problem with my T500 (same wireless adapter, Intel 5300 AGN) since upgrading from Vista Business to Win 7 Professional.  I had no problems with wireless connectivity under Vista.  From what I can tell, this seems to be a problem with the 5300 adapter running under Win 7 on the T400/500 platforms.  I've tried everything, and I haven't been able to find a resolution on this forum up to this point.  I believe this is a problem Lenovo owes its customers a solution for.

Hi there guys,it's my first post on this forum even although I should've asked here first. I have the same problem with the network wifi adapter as mentioned in the previous thread with this subject: it happens to disconnect and after that it doesn't appear in Device Manager for some time. Ussually I go there 'scan for hardware changes' and it appears back, but sometimes it doesn't come back for good and I need to restart my laptop. So..this is quite sad. I've read all the opinions about this and all solutions so far and nothing worked for me. I checked my driver on Intel and it says: Product DetectedIntel(R) WiFi Link 5300 AGNCurrent Driver Installed14.3.2.1This device is unknown or unsupported. Please contact the manufacturer for possible updates.So I downloaded their newer driver which is 15.3 and still the driver version remains 14.3.  This is becoming quite annoying becouse it happens to disconnect right when I am downloading or writing an email.        Did someone from tech support found a solution for this? please! I would appreciate a lot. Thank you. p.s. I am running win8 pro.

Answer:About Intel WiFi Link 5300 AGN

I suspect there are variants of the Intel 5300 card that will work in Lenovo systems, and other versions of the card that are designed for other systems (like HP, etc) and will not work in a Lenovo. It's possible that the 5300 card you have wasn't designed for Lenovo platforms, and as a result doesn't match up with the bios whitelist on your system. Did the system originally come with this card, or was the card installed sometime later? If installed later, was the card supposedly compatible with Lenovo systems (incl your model)? I picked up my new 5300 card from eBay sometime back... it was listed as compatible with my Lenovo T400 (incl a few other models), and once I installed it (and installed the driver, updated access connections, rebooted the system etc), it came right up at 450mbps when near the access-point. Finally, the 15.x (I'm assuming Lenovo) driver might not support this older 5300 card... my T400 is running a 14.x driver for Win7 64-bit which does support the 5300, but I noticed the 15.x driver for my system doesn't support the older 5300 (and states that in the release notes for this ver). That's all I can come up with for now... hope something here helps you out. And keep me posted... will check this thread from time to time. Mike

Ladies and Gentlemen,I have phoned several times with the Lenovo support, but unfortunately, no solution wasfound. I actually thought my question is really trivial: I would like to have an Intel Wifi Link 5300 card in my SL500 (2746 - KYG). Related to the hardware maintenance manual v1, under http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/43y6762.pdf this card is compatible (Intel WiFi Link 5300 2746-CTO FRU 43Y6459).I am no longer sure thatthebusiness phone support has the necessary quality and couldsolve the problem. At the beginning theyrepeatedly pointed out that the Intel Wifi Link 5100 could afford my desired 300 Mbit/s, and it would be a misconfiguration on my side. Taking a look at Intel's website -the card only sends max. 150 Mbit/s.After the employee of the business support talkedmanytimes to atechnician, he answeredthat the Intel WiFi Link 5300 is generally compatible. There after, I asked whether the FRU No. 43Y6459 is mentioned in my bios, because otherwise the notebook is not functionable and acknowledged his service with error 1802... The supoort guywas very surprised, he had never heard about this error. Atthis point I saw no way to progress the conversation and I ended it friendly.I would be very happy if someonehasa solution to my littleproblem. I ordered a card with the FRU# 43Y6459 and installed it. Unfortunately, without success - error 1802, even though this card should be compatible according Hardware Maintenance Manual.Please IBM/Lenov... Read more

Answer:SL500 and Intel Wifi Link 5300

Hello mate, I see that the FRU 43Y6459 is compatible with the SL500 2746-CTO. The only way to explain this would be the CTO model don't have the same whitelist than the KYG.The only way to get rid of that is replacing your BIOS with a hacked one who doesn't have a whitelist. You'll void your warranty and it's at your own risk.

I bought my Lenovo T500 last year in summer (2009). It came with a b/g wifi card and I want to upgrade it to Intel Wifi Link 5300 but it seems lenovo.com has stopped selling this card. I also heard that not all 5300 cards are compatible with Lenovo Thinkpads. Could anyone tell me if this card is compatible or not? If not, any suggestions?http://www.amazon.com/Intel-533ANMMWW-Wifi-Link-5300/dp/B001CXT6NQ/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1284... Thank You. 

Answer:Wifi Upgrade to Intel Wifi Link 5300

Hi and welcome to the forum!It will work but the card must be lenovo approved as far as I know, following will definitely work:- http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p3907.m570.l1313&_nkw=t500+intel+5300&_sacat=See-All-Categor...Not so sure about the one you linked to though.Hope it helps.

I've read a dozen postings and think I know what's going on but hopefully someone can simplify it for me. With the Realtek RTL8191SE I am experiencing 4-5 minute boot times and WiFi connect times on my T400S (2801).  I decided to get the Intel WiFi Link 5300 agn card (533AN_MWW) to allow 5ghz connections and eliminate the Realtek problems.  I installed the card, connected the wires properly (Grey1, Black2, White3), hardware WiFi antenna switch is on, card is recognized by Windows, Intel 14.3.2.1 driver, driver is enabled but when I open Access Connections, no wireless networks are found.  Fn+F5 shows that the 802.11 Wireless Radio is present but with a status of Off.  When I click the Power On button, it turns green and closes automatically 30 seconds later but remains Off and still no networks found.  I don't think this adapter is whitelisted by the BOIS but I could have a different version than Lenovo approves.  I tried the other tips given such as disabling n, turning power management off, etc but to no avail.  Ideas?

Answer:Intel WiFi Link 5300 agn card not able to turn on via Fn+F5

I think I might have figured it out.  There are two PCI Express Mini Card slots on the T400S (2801).  The shorter slot is for WiFi/WiMax cards and the longer slot is for WAN cards.  The longer 5300 cards on the market cannot be used in the longer slot.  Windows recognizes the cards but Access Connections (or maybe the BIOS) does not allow it to operate.  Can anyone verify this?

I purchased my T500 within the first week Lenovo had it available for US consumers to order.  I was assured the machine was going to come with a WiMax card.  I gave it to my daughter to use.  We never tested WiMax since we did not have WiMax in our city until October of last year.  Came to find out, our machine did not come with a WiMax card as was promissed.  It has in it the Intel WiFi Link 5300 AGN card instead.  Needless to say, I no longer feel comfortable ordering from Lenovo anymore.  We got seven laptops in the house.  Five of which are ThinkPads.  However, we've moved over to Samsung after this unpleasant experience. Today I wanted to see if there's an updated version of the driver I'm running for my WiFi card, to my unpleasant surprise, the driver for the Intel WiFi Link 5300 AGN card in my T500 does not exist anywhere at www.lenovo.com.  I only see drivers for the Intel 5150 and the Intel 5350 cards. Does anybody out there have any idea where I can find the latest driver for the Intel WiFi Link 5300 AGN in my duped T500 laptop?  Thank you in advance for your help.

I recently needed to restore my T500 to factory defaults. After doing so I have not been able to access any of the content on my network over wireless. It will conect to the access point, get the IP settings, etc. but when I try to get on the internet, or anything on my network, it says its an invalid name/address. If I plug in the LAN, everything works just fine. Anyone have any suggestions?

Answer:Intel WiFi Link 5300 can't connect to the Internet

Can you be more specific as to the error you get? What operating system are you using? Not that this should matter, but have you tried updating your wireless drivers from Lenovo.com, or direct from Intel if necessary? Also don't forget something as silly as rebooting your access point & modem.

I'm pretty confused, and I'm hoping someone here can help me. Every time I restart/turn on the computer, the wireless adapter turns on for a couple of seconds then shuts back off.
Then I have to manually press the adapter button for it to turn back on. I reinstalled my Windows and that didnt fix it. The wireless works as it should after I turn it back on.

I checked the power settings, in the properties for the adapter, And i have set it to always be on.

Does anyone know why this might be happening and what I can do to fix it?

Hi Everyone, I've purchased 2 days ago an X301 and downgraded to WinXP SP3 from Win7 using the Rescue & Recovery Disc that came with the unit. Everything is working fine except the wireless adapter (Intel WiFi Link 5300agn). I cannot find it in the device manager and in Net Connections (Ctrl Panel). T/S done:The current setting of Wireless LAN in BIOS>Security>I/O Port Access is already enabled as well as the Wireless switch at the back but still not detected. I added the adapter manually in Add Hardware in the Ctrl Panel as Intel WiFi 5300 AGN (Device status: Code 10 This device cannot start). Then I downloaded and installed the latest driver (http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-70496.html) but still not working. I tried using Vista driver as well but still no glory. I tried also the latest driver for WinXP from Intel but still not working. Your help is highly appreciated.Thanks in advance.

I upgraded my T500 to Windows 7 Professional from Vista Business.  Since upgrading, I have been unable to obtain satisfactory WiFi connectivity.  Symptoms are that I cannot stream from either the internet or my local server without experiencing periodic interruptions and/or total drops.  I've tried reinstalling the driver, replacing the WiFi card itself, and adjusting the parameters associated with the adapter card.  Nothing seems to help.  I also own a T61 laptop which I also upgraded from Vista Business to Windows 7 Professional, and I have had no problems with WiFi connectivity on that machine.  It also has an Intel Wifi adapter but a different model.  Both laptops connect to my LAN and the internet through the same D-Link wireless access router. I'm beginning to suspect that the Windows 7 driver for this particular WiFi adapter is flawed.  Has anyone in this forum had a similar experience? Thanks in advance for your comments/assistance.

hey Alphapoint,try this, uninstall the Wifi LAN drivers. let Windows install its generic drivers.test your connection with the generic drivers. See if that works, then install the drivers from our support site but before you install it, go to MSCONFIG and set your unit to Diagnostic mode first before installing.

eGreetings All,

I have a 4 year old Acer Netbook Aspire One D250-1341. Running Windows 7 Starter. It is out of warranty.
About 3 months ago it started dropping the wireless internet connection. It has a Broadcom 802.11g network adapter onboard. (No exclamation mark in the Device Manager). It still connects at close range to my router.

I tried some general adjustments by searching the web - but nothing helped.

So I thought I would try adding an Intel Wifi Link 5300 AGN card. There is a slot on the bottom of the netbook where it fits. You just take the cover off and slide it in.
Windows found the card and installed the drivers. It shows up in Device Manager with no exclamation. I manually disabled the Broadcom adapter.
But the Intel 5300 won't find my network.
I went to the Intel web site and ran the Driver Update Utility it searched and found the 5300 and installed the current drivers.
Still no luck connecting.

Maybe this setup won't work at all and I should send the Intel 5300 card back to Amazon for a refund?
I am at a loss.
I have tried searching the web and I can't find anyone that has added a a wireless card to the open slot on the bottom of an Acer D250.

Any ideas? I was hoping to get a stronger and more stable wireless connection.

Thank you so much for your time and assistance.
Happy Holidays!
Jeri

4) Device shows up as active in networking devices

however, I cannot see any wireless ssid's to associate with.
I checked mfg web site for latest drivers and the intel web set for the adapter itself. After many downloads of win8 and win7 driver bundles (no support for win2008r2 apparently) I have not found a solution yielding a fix.

Can the U110's wireless card be upgraded to use Intel's WiFi Link 5300? 

Answer:Upgrade U110 with WiFi Link 5300

I'm sure the WiFi Link 4965agn should work, bu I'm curious as to whether the 5300  mini-pcie card would be recognized by the U110 since it would make more use of my wireless router.

I have been trying to sort a number of wifi connection problems on my new T400s. I downloaded the latest drivers at Lenovo Support. Still have problems. Checked the Intel support site - their latest drivers are newer and several versions later than those on Lenovo's site. It looks like they address a number of my problems. But Intel advises strongly against using their generic drivers instead of the version from the laptop manufacturer because the OEM version will have been "customised". Can anyone tell me if there new "customised" drivers for the 5300 on their way from Lenovo? Or can anyone tell me if I can safely download and install the latest Intel driver?

Using a T500 with its Intel wireless card Wifi Link 5300, XP Pro SP3, and Netgear router N900 (WNDR4500). Configured router to use WPA2-AES. Intranet transfers to my Netgear ReadyNAS (Duo v2) are slow. Using a lan wired connection the transfer rate is about 38Mbps and the wireless rate is 15Mbps on either 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz. (transfer test used Totu Softs Lan Speed Test) Interesting the Windows tray icon for wireless connections show "Speed: 54Mbps" for both. Should the 54Mpbs be showing at a higher rate?Should the transfer rates be higher? Any guidance will be much appreciated.

Answer:Wifi Link 5300 only shows 54Mbps on 5Ghz

To connect the 802.11n wireless LAN AP with full line rate performance:
Configure your system to Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption using Access Connections (or other wireless utilities). AES is supported by all secure authentication schemes such as WPA/WPA2.
Make sure your 802.11n AP is configured to AES encryption for 11n mode. Check with your 802.11n AP manufacturer for specific instructions on how to configure AES-based security.

According to the Intel website my Link 5300 connection speed will be restricted to 54Mbps over any 801.11n connection. It says I wont get maximum connection speed unless I change over to AES security protocols instead of WPA or variants. There were no setup instructions about using AES when I was setting up my new T400s. I cant find any information about this on my T400s or online at Lenovo. This is not one of my areas of expertise so I would appreciate some help to ensure I've set up my Link 5300 correctly to get maximum connection speeds.

Answer:WiFi Link 5300 - Security Restricted Speed

AES is a security encryption algorithm. WPA is just a standard.You cannot configure your wireless adapter card to use a specific standard / encryption algorithm if your router / access point you are trying to connect does not support it. Usually Windows automatically chooses the correct standards that your router supports and will use that.In order to use the AES algorithm, you will need to go in your router and have your security standard set to WPA or WPA2. If your router supports WPA2, it is highly recommended that you select this since it is more secure than its predecessor. Once you do this, your router should prompt you in what algorithm to use, TKIP, AES, or TKIP+AES. If all your wireless clients support this, you can select WPA2 / AES.This should match what you are trying to do.Good luck!

I'm looking to upgrade my Y730 to a Intel 5300 but keep reading that the 5300 wont work on Lenovos because of  a BIOS problem. Some places I look they say that their specific version with only work with lenovos and then other places say they wont work with lenovos or HPs. Every place I look has the exact same model number. Im so confused. Can anyone provide any help? Thanks so much in advance!!!! Here is a link to the one that I am looking at on ebay. LinkThe description says it will work with IBM laptops that have GM45 but they only list Thinkpads as compatable model number no idepads at all. What do ya'll think?Message Edited by alohadustin on 02-20-2009 10:10 PM

Answer:Upgrading Y730 to Intel 5300 Wifi

In a Lenovo/IBM laptop, the BIOS has a predefined list of hardware IDs of the WLAN cards it will accept. If the card you put in is not on the list, the BIOS will throw up a flag by stating that an unsupported network card was inserted. It will tell you to remove it and then reboot the computer. The hardware ID on a Lenovo/IBM branded card is different from that of a generic one. Thus, a generic one will not work. Older ThinkPads had a work-around that enabled any card to work but the method used doesn't apply to IdeaPads. Lenovo states that this is to ensure that the hardware complies with FCC standards [or equivalent for different countries]. Reference However, I do believe that any device that transmits radio waves for communication has to be certified by the FCC anyways. So the idea kind of bounces back and hits them in the face. Doesn't it?Message Edited by ortegaluis on 02-20-2009 08:30 PM

I purchased a T400 (which I LOVE so far) but like a fool, didn't opt for the 5300 3x3 WiFi for $15 more... after some post purchase research, I'd much rather have the extra antennae's for picking up those barely in wifi signals around my house.   Does anyone know if the 5300 card can simply be plugged in to replace the 5100?  It all comes down to whether the 3 antennae's are installed on ALL models, with the connectors ununsed when a laptop comes with the 5100.  Anyone know the answer to this? Regards,-Owen

I have an Acer 11.6" Aspire One AO751H netbook. I want to upgrade the wireless-G to N. This model takes the half size mini pci-e cards. I just recently purchased the Intel Ultimate N WiFi Link 5300 card. Installed it yesterday, booted the computer, and so far so good. It recognized the card right away and the driver installation was successful. The wifi activity light works, the card is recognized, but it is unable to detect any networks. It just flashes that little balloon at the bottom saying "wireless networks unavailable". Try to refresh the network list, and i still get nothing. I tried turning the card off, then on again, but nothing. I checked on the driver in Device Manager, and it says it is functioning properly.

I have the most up-to-date BIOS and I am running 32-bit XP Pro (downgraded from the factory installed VISTA). I was wondering if maybe there was an issue with the antennas? The 5300 card has 3 antenna inputs, but the laptop only has two antennas. I was told on numerous forums that it would still function fine with only two antennas, however. I obtained the most up-to-date driver for the card right from intel's website and it installed without any issues at all. Does anyone have any input on to why this card seems to have installed fine, but cannot detect wireless networks? Should I try an older driver? I know many people have upgraded the wifi in this Aspire Ones, so I can't see it simply being incompatible.

I just recently purchased a T500 as a replacement for my existing T60p.  The new one came with an Intel 5300 AGN card and Vista Business 64.  I've been slogging through the process of downloading and installing all the ancillary stuff (printer drivers, etc) and found out last night that what I thought was a network problem in performance is really a T500 wifi problem. Downloading stuff from intel over WiFi - 4.1kbsDownloading stuff from intel over Ethernet - 500+kbs. I thought perhaps this was an issue with my wifi, but on my T60 -  downloading stuff from intel over WiFi - 600+kbs. So its not the wifi. So its something with the T500 and possibly the 5300 card.  I note that this version shipped with some fairly strange WiFi configuration - Intel WiFi STA as the offered wifi interface with the 5300 well hidden.  I'm tempted to try and uninstall the WiFi STA and see if that improves things. I've also tried updating the WiFi to the newest intel drivers without luck (drivers updated, but didn't improve performance).  I've played with power settings and various other twiddles - also without luck. Anyone have any ideas? I may see if I have an old AR wifi card and replace the 5300 with it... Mike 

Answer:T500 WiFi Performance Issues (Intel 5300) - help!

After trying a few more things including removing the Intel My WIFI drivers, I decided to try swapping out the 5300 with an older AR based ABGN mini PCI card.  So I pulled off the palm rest and key board and pulled the various connections and screwdowns needed to remove the card.  Unfortunately, the AR card is double sided - it wouldn't lay flat in the slot.  So I replaced the 5300, screwed everything down, reconnected the antennas, replace the keyboard and palm rest and replaced the battery.  I powered it up and low and behold - I'm now getting the speeds I was expecting.  E.g. north of 1Mbs.  The only thing I can figure is either the antennas were misconnected or just not seated properly. I recommend reseating the antennas for anyone else who has this problem - probably before trying pretty much any of the other things suggested in this forum - power, twiddlles, etc. Mike

I finally found the solution to my problem today, and I'm posting this information in hopes that someone can verify in their environment what I found in mine.  Also in hopes that it will save someone else the weeks of effort it took me to resolve. To recap, my problem was that I was unable to stream audio or video either from my LAN or from the internet without losing connectivity frequently or permanently.  This problem began when several months ago I updated my laptop to Win 7 Professional from Vista Business.  I didn't experience the problem under Vista.  Today I determined the problem was that I am running mixed mode on my LAN which apparently is not supported by the Win 7 driver for the Intel 5300.  My router is the D-Link DIR-655 which is an 802.11n router capable of being configured for mixed mode support.  I am running it configured for n and g support since my wife's laptop only supports g.  I booted up my laptop today and began an audio stream from my server and to my surprise it worked beautifully, just like it should.  I listened for a while and suddenly the music began skipping.  I noticed that my wife had just booted her laptop about the same time the skips began.  On a long shot I went into the advanced configuration of the 5300 and disabled 802.11n support forcing it to disconnect and reconnect at 54Mbps.  That action restored my audio stream immediately, and I proceded to test by exercising seve...

The DIR-655 only operates in the 2.4GHz WiFi band (you can see that in the product manual - Frequency Range 2.4GHz to 2.483GHz) and is not fully  802.11n Draft 2 compliant, and so will not achieve 802.11n speed with the Intel WiFi cards which are fully 802.11n Draft 2 compliant.
In 802.11n Draft 2, based on field experience, the IEEE 802.11n Working Group specified that bonded channel operation should only take place in the 5GHz WiFi band and 802,11n operation in the 2.4GHz band created too many other issues for 802.11b/g operation in that band.  This is also reflected in the recently ratified/published 802.11n specification.
So the problem IS your router, not the Intel cards, or Windows 7 drivers.

I recently purchased a Lenovo T400 with the Intel 5350 wireless card (same as the 5300 but with WiMax), and, like a lot of other people on this forum, I could not get the wifi to consistently work. I spent several frustrating days searching these forums and trying pretty much every solution offered (XP 32 bit, Vista 32 bit, Vista 64 bit, w/ & w/out Access Connections, w/ & w/out Intel software, Lenovo drivers vs. Intel drivers, etc.). However, in the end, the solution was totally unrelated. What I found was that when I was using WEP security on my Linksys WRT54G router (v5 w/ the latest firmware) I could not get wifi to work consistently. In most cases it was hard to get it to work at all. In other cases it might work after a reboot for a few minutes, then stop working again. However, as soon as I either turned off security or changed it to WPA2-Personal, wifi worked like a charm. I was originally thinking about returning the laptop, since no wifi makes it pretty much unusable. But, with this finding I think I will keep it. Since it is obviously a driver issue, I'm going to assume there will be a driver update in the near future to fix the problem. Hope this helps some of you who are having the same problems!

Answer:Intel 5300/5350 Intermittent Wifi Solution - Don't use WEP security!

That is a fascinating solution to the intermittent mess the Intel cards can go into. Never would have thought secrurity and encryption would affect the performance. For what it's worth, go into the properties of the wireless card in Device Manager. Go to the Advanced Tab. Set "Roaming Aggressiveness" slider to the lowest, "Power Managment" to lowest, and "Transmit Power" to highest. These were solutiosn that I've run across and fixed the problem for me (I have the regular 5300, hope you will get to use and enjoy WiMax).

After an XP to Windows 7 Ultimate upgrade, wifi is broken. The yellow antenna light next to the bluetooth light at the bottom of the screen is lit. Wired neworking works but not Wifi. I've downloaded the latest Intel driver but when I troubleshoot it gives error messages such as "the device is not enabled". I've scoured forums and tried a few things.1. Uninstall the driver, uninstall Thinkvantage Connection Manager, reboot, reinstall driver, connection manager.2. Turn off wireless-n (someone previously posted a solution that involved disabling wireless n).3. Disabled the ability to disable the device on the power manager.4. Lowered the antenna power (it was on high).5. Verified the device in enabled in the bios.6. Hit fn-F5 (which seems to do nothing)7. Checked the switch in the front (the yellow light does turn off if I slide it left). If you start up Thinkvantage Access Connections, it shows zero wireless access points and I know I have a few neighbors besides me who have wireless routers. My mac finds my router (a D-Link DIR-655) just fine. A few folks mentioned that the cards do go but it seems strange.

I hope I can still change my order, and go with the Intel WiFi Link 5300, as WiMAX is likely going to be dropped by Sprint, the third largest cellular carrier (out of four), although Sprint says it will keep on fighting what many are looking at as a dead technology, although it still has other big companies backing WiMAX.

Hi, since my WLAN Card seems to be broken I bought myself a new Intel Wifi Link 5100 for my W500. After I replaced the old card with the new one, I get a "1802 unauthorized network card error".I googled for the problem an now I am completely pissed about lenovo. My W500 has a standard slot for such cards, but the W500 has a bios which checks cards against a whitelist and I cannot turn this completely useless check off.Any idea what I could do?2 weeks ago I started thinking about buying a new notebook after christmas. Now I wonder, whether the W530 suffers from the same problem. In the moment I am not sure, whether it makes any sense to buy another lenovo product, when it turns out, it could be crippled the same way as my W500. So does anybody know, whether the W530 suffers the same problem. A last question? What happens, when I plug a WLAN-Stick into USB? Must it also be authorized by lenovo and how do I find out, which products are authorized? Thanks in advance Thomas

Answer:W500 and Intel Wifi Link 5100

welcome to the community.
 
sorry for your troubles.
afaik, all ThinkPads of at least the last 5(?) or more generations have had a BIOS whitelist for mPCI/e WLAN / WWAN options. as i understand it, this is due to getting approvals from numerous "Communications" regulatory agencies around the world for the cards. unfortunately, i've never seen the whitelists published anywhere, so we normally go by the FRU #s included in hardware maintenance manuals when folks ask for advice on compatible cards.
 
re: the USB WLAN stick, you should have no issue similar to a whitelist block.
 
regards.

Ok I have a Asus G60VX thats less than a year old running windows 7. On Friday (three days ago) the system was working fine, I could connect to the internet and everything. Tonight when i turned on my laptop it showed that i couldn't connect to the internet. So i rebooted both my computer and router thinking it was my brother playing Xbox live. It still didn't work. So i tried the usual suspects: deleted the saved file and made a new one, went into the device manager and made sure there weren't any problems (there weren't), i even tried doing a system restore but to no avail. I tried the Fn combo on my keyboard and the switch on the front but this still didn't work. After three hours searching for a solution on my desktop (which can access the internet fine) I kinda want to take a sledge hammer to the thing. :) So at this point i'm begging for a solution! thanks!

Answer:Problem with Intel WiFi link 5100?

Hi.

Did you install any iTunes or Apple software before this happened?

For now, try resetting the network protocol tcp/ip stack. In an elevated command prompt, copy and paste this then hit enter:


Code:
netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt
Then do the same for this command:


Code:
netsh winsock reset
Reboot and test the connection. If still no good, go into Internet Explorer.

Tools | Internet Options | Connection | Lan Settings

and make sure there are no checked boxes. Then ok your way out a few times. Reopen IE and test.

If still no good, please respond about the Apple, iTunes software and/or do you have mdnsresponder.exe in the task manager?

it's still is but remember this is a free forum....
since airbot already gave you the lecture on the bumping threads im not going to go into that...
but what i can tell you to do in the throughput enhancement to turn it on...
also in wireless mode put it to 802.11n as i believe right now you are using 802.11g and not using the n spec...

also even in ideal situations you are not going to get the throughput specified in the n spec or advertised...
it says *up to* because that is the maximum speed that it will go and usually the hardware never reaches that speed....

Hello, I'm trying to get wifi working on my x200, but nothing I try seems to work. Initially, in XP or Windows 7, the card wasnt even detected, so wouldn't come up in the unrecognized devices section in device manager.  I installed/uninstalled the drivers several times but nothing changed. I then opened up the Thinkpad and moved the wifi card from the first slot to the second.  Upon booting, in Windows 7 and again in xp, the card was recognised, but a code 10 error came up. I've tried replacing the wlan card with one from an R60, but the x200's boot software prevented the PC from booting up. Can anyon help? Thanks John  

Answer:X200 and Intel Wifi Link 5100

Update to my first note.  After a day of installing countless drivers, bios updates and whatever else.  I'm pleased to say that my x200 is now woking in XP with wifi on the 5100. The PCI slot the 5100 card was in to start with did not register any device to be present.  The second slot, recognised the card but gave a code 10 error. I also followed the steps outlined in: kbartke's post on resolving the code 10 on 5100 issue.  That had no immediate effect, but may have eventually solved the problem. I also updated the bios to 3.02. The strange thing that seemed to work was changing the machine's name.  Once restarted, the wifi light came on. I now have to figure out how to get rid of all the bloatware i managed to install in my attempts to get this working... John

Hi everyone ! I just bought a new Lenovo Y470 and has been using it for couple weeks. My wifi network works fine since then. Until yesterday, it suddently stucked. I need some help. I've tried Disable/Enable the adapter but it still did not work. Please help!!Thanks.

Answer:Y470 wifi Intel Link 1000BGN

First off try rebooting the router if you haven't already, turn it off for a minute and switch it back on, If that doesn't work try a system restore and if that doesn't work go to Device Manager (don't worry if it's vista it still works for win 7) and uninstall the drivers and reboot, the system should automatically install them back once windows boots up. If none of them work ,you might need serious help.

i just replaced an old belkin g router with a d-link dir-825 extreme n dual-band router...i managed to get the desktop connected to the internet using a d-link dwa-552 pci adapter (after updating using the atheros version driver, the included software manager/driver on the cd was a pain-in-the-a$$)...

the macbook pro also connects to the router and the internet...as does the wii and the ps3...using WPA2 security...

the vaio laptop, with vista business 32-bit and an intel wifi 4965agn adapter will not connect to either the router (192.168.0.1) or the internet in a browser window...

i updated the driver to the latest version...

the wireless network shows up, but when i try to connect it says "local access only"...in the vista diagnostic window it says "can't connect to primary dns server" (192.168.0.1)

i set up the router with this same laptop using a wired connection and the d-link set-up wizard, and i got an internet connection then...it just won't connect wirelessly...

of course i reset the router and the cable modem (time warner/roadrunner)...

is it an ip address problem? if so, how do i solve it?

thanks for any ideas...

I recently started an internship in Egypt about a week ago. When I first got here the wireless internet worked fine (albeit a bit slow) in my apartment and around the campus. However last thrusday the Wifi on my laptop quit working. I have a Intel Wifi Link 5100 AGN that has Windows 7 RC on it right now. The adapter picks up the signal but when you try and connect it gives 'limited connectivity " = no internet. I tried using the Troubleshooter but when used it just says that The Diagonostic Policy service is not running and therefore it cannot fix the the problem. I was wondering if anyone had a solution to this problem.

try this either set a hard coded dns

or hard code the ip if you know what your network ip address numbers are
that your access point uses

so say some thing like
this is very very common here

IP: 192.168.1. 100-150
SUBNET: 255.255.255.0
GATEWAY:192.168.1.1

and find a dsn server



dont use them numbers there just make sure that your using the right set for the network that your connecting too
i have the same card in my laptop and its a work horse and some


also is the network that your connecting too secure make sure you have your settings right

Hi I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FW11E Laptop with an Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN.
On the front is a switch to turn of the Wireless adaptor & a little green light that goes out when you switch it off.
Normally when I turn on the computer it comes on automatically but sometimes it does not & when I look at Device manager it is missing. The only way I can fix it is to turn the computer off & on again. Sometimes I have to do this several times before it will work.
It also goes off by itself if the computer is left on for any length of time without being used.

I've been having issues with my laptop and its wifi card for the past couple of months. It's an Intel WiFi Link 5100 and my internet just randomly stops working, other computers and devices still work fine, but on my computer I cannot browse the internet (however sometimes downloads don't stop for some reason). Updated my drivers, turning it off and on does nothing, and I'm pretty sure it's not my firewall but next time the internet stops working i'll make sure.

When I say it randomly stops working I mean I'll turn the computer on it will work for a bit then just stop then a little bit later it will work. No other computers or devices experience those kind of pulses here.

I have an Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN and it keeps crashing my laptop. I would be working and my screen would freeze randomly and my computer would remain unresponsive. This only happens when I turn on my laptop's wireless card and put it to use.

I tried multiple drivers but the newer ones froze my computer faster. I recently did a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit and it still does the same.

Uninstalling the driver and rebooting while letting Windows install a default driver yields the same results.

I am new here. I'm not even sure if this question is in the correct forum (I hope so). I have a Toshiba Satellite A305 laptop that I purchased a few months ago.

I then have to perform a hard shut off (by holding the power button till it powers down) and wait a few minutes to turn it back on. I have uninstalled the wireless adapter and then reinstalled it and that didn't work either. Also, all the drivers are up to date. I am very frustrated at this point and don't know what to do. Any help that anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated !!

Type: 7764-CTO S/N: L3-xxxxx OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit Driver version: 13.1.1.1 In a nutshell, my WiFi has stopped working overnight; that is, it had been working flawlessly for more than a year, and one day when I woke up it decided to quit. Here's what happens when I turn the radio on now: it will scan for APs as usual, but only report a fraction of the list as it used to - it may not report even the preferred APs, which it had no problems connecting to before - and never make a connection. On some rare occasions, it might be successful at making a connection, but the connection would be reported as limited (i.e. no Internet access) and it would not stay connected for more than a few seconds. 90% of the time the 802.11 radio would try connecting, fail, and power off. Here's what I have tried: I have tried updating to the latest driver, as well as reverting back to the Windows 7 bundled driver. I have tried making connections to several working networks (e.g. friend's home, office, cafes, etc) to rule out my router being the source of the problem. I have also tried running the Ubuntu LiveCD to see if it would work under a different OS. Obviously, nothing has worked. For those who are curious, ethernet connection is working fine. I'm leaning toward it being a hardware failure. Does anyone have other thoughts and perhaps even a solution?

Hi: You may be able to get the card to work if you fiddle with some of the advanced settings on the advanced tab for the card in the device manager. I have 3 HP business notebooks...one has the Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3965ABG card, one has the Intel Intel WiFi Link 4965AG card, one has the Intel WiFi Link 5300 wireless card. The first two I didn't have to do anything to make them work. The 5300...device is present in the device manager saw wireless networks but would not connect when I clicked connect. I went into the advanced settings tab and I think I enabled WMM and the card works just fine and has so ever since. Try tweaking one of the settings in the advanced settings tab. I wish I remembered exactly which setting I changed that made it connect. I was ticked off, so I wasn't paying attention to what I was doing. Could not understand why two older cards worked perfectly and the newer one wouldn't. Changing the wireless card would be extremely problematic as you are limited to just the cards listed in the service manual and half the time the ones listed in the manual cause the notebook not to boot up until the card is removed. Also, if you can't get the Intel 5100 to work, you can forget any of the others listed working on W10. I am very sure that changing one of those advanced settings will allow the 5100 card to work.

I have an hp pavilion dv6 1355dx win 7 64bit intel core 2 duo. The wifi was working fine with my remembered connections and connected automatically within range. Then it started saying limited connection and would not let me browse the internet. After trouble shooting it said "There might be a problem with the driver for the Wireless Network Connection adapter" So I uninstalled reinstalled Intel(R) WiFi Link 1000 BGN it was listed under network adapter so I'm assuming that means it is the adapter but I was told it is the driver. Still confused on that. A friend suggested that I delete my remembered connections now it just says no connections available.

Under network adapter properties even tried changing the channel width for band 2.4 thats Value was set 20 MHz only to Auto, as I was instructed by my college IT guy. I've searched for the drivers installed the one on the hp support site. According to my model i have Atheros Wireless LAN Adapter, in the devices supported list nothing that I thought was the adapter or driver was listed. Downloaded the file they said contains the driver for that adapter...didn't seem to do anything other than install. Tried rebooting still nothing. Anyone have any ideas or is it just a lost cause?

Thanks

Answer:Intel(R) WiFi Link 1000 BGN wireless internet won't work

You could try backing up your data and re-loading your system from your backup software or from a restore point from before the start of your problem? That way the network adaptor will have a working driver installed.

I would go to the available connections window, and the network i'm connected to would say 'Connected with limited connectivity', and then it would disconnect and then it would not be able to detect any networks, even though it previously did before. I know it's not a network problem because the same problem occured on two different networks I have set up in two different places. The device manager does not report anything wrong with it, and I did not randomly turn off the wifi for any reason. I would have to reset my laptop in order to fix the problem.

I have a Gateway FX series 17" laptop and yesterday when I got home from university and took the computer out of my bag to start working, the wireless card just didnt exist, no networks were recognized and when i tried to troubleshoot it told me that no device was connected. Wired internet works just fine. And the wireless card appears in the device manager.

methods i have tried to no avail:
-turning the wireless switch on and off
-uninstalling the device and rebooting
-updating drivers
-manually downloading driver from Intel's website
-insulting the device's mother

I'm suspecting this might be a hardware issue but if anyone has some advice that would be great. For the time being I am just using a wired connection but I'm going to need the wireless when I'm. back in class

,Thanks guys

Firstly, sorry for my english.  Now, where´s the problem. I´ve bought two days ago a brand new Lenovo Z570 with pre-installed Win7HP. I do not like it, so I updated it to Proff. version. I installed all the drivers, and when I moved to other room in flat, I was/am not able to connect to internet. Wifi signal is excellent in every room, but the only place where I can connect to internet is my table where is also the router. There´s no problem in connectivity with other devices. My older NB Dell Inspiron 1520 with Broadcom wifi adapter has no problems with connection.  Yeah, and if I move in the same room where´s router too just for a 3 metres, I cannot connect to internet, but the signal is great.  I dont think the problem could be in router ´cause other devices (4 NB´s) are able to connect to the internet in every room. Where could be problem and what I have to do? Thanks for replies

This is a new machine (to me). It is a T-500 2242CTO with an Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN card and a fresh install of Windows 7 64-bit.  I successfully VPN using Ethernet from this machine and wirelessly from other machines in my home network.  However, wireless VPN connectivity from this machine fails 100% of the time.  Current drivers and updates are installed.  I am using the Windows VPN client and receive the following message: Error 800: The remote connection was not made because the attempted VPN tunnels failed.  I turned on logging and found no useful information, to me, in the mounds of data generated.  I've also un-installed the wireless driver, re-installed it, un-installed Lenovo Access Connections and the same error continues.  Has anyone encountered this issue or have suggested fixes?

Hi,When I purchase T61 and start working on WiFi it was quiet good, real transfers big files around 6MB/s. So it was nice even with WEP2 encryption.Then I update my system through TV and my problem starts. Transfer beneath 1MB/s. So I start messing with drivers and its help for a while.Now I am back to slow connection and I've try every thing I can think about(reinstall sys VISTA  included) On new system I install new drivers from Lenovo and it is not working. It looks like the WiFi link freeze for a while and the starts again an so on like that. I have all parameters on high or aggressive or max performance, it do not help much. Any one some idea? Ah! I should add. I do not use Access ControlMessage Edited by gonzo111 on 03-17-2009 07:07 AM

Two day ago I used ThinkVantage SYstem Update and installed Intel Wifi link driver (ver 13.01.1000). But since then my computer was randomly cut off internet connection, and the wireless signal strength icon on the system tray indicated no nearby wireless network. And then it powered off the wireless connection. Whatever I do, I cannot re-power on the wireless (I used Access Connection to power on the 802.11 wireless radio, but it could not be turned on and nothing happened) unless I restart the computer. I thought it might be the router that malfunctioned as this problem never happened before. But after I checked the router and used another notebook to test wireless connection, I was sure the router ran very well.Then I re-installed the TVT Access Connection (ver 5.61) and the Intel WIFI Link Driver (ver 13.01.1000) but the problem remained. Could anybody give a possible solution?  I also noticed on Lenovo's website, the Intel wireless card driver for T61 is v13.00.0000 Windows Vista 23 Oct 2009. It's lower than what I have now. Could that be the cause? My ThinkPad T61 has the following configuration:Model: T61 8897CTOOS: WinVista Home Basic SP2 32bitLanguage: ENWireless Card: Intel 3945 ABGWireless Card Driver: 13.1.1.1 (previous one was 13.0.0.0)TVT Access Connection: 5.61

Answer:New Intel WIFI Link Driver Randomly cut off Internet Connection

Hi carlven,Anytime when wireless driver is updated, Access Connections also needs to be reistalled.Do this, first uninstall your wireless driver and access connections, thereafter reboot your system. Then install wireless driver first, again reboot, subsequently install access connections, reboot again.When installing any lenovo driver manually, keep in mind they first extract themselves to a default location in C:\Drivers..., second .exe setup must be run from that location to successfully install the drivers.Hope it helps.

I have an X301 S/N xx-xxxxx laptop installed with Vista Business Professional 64-bit SP1. A few days ago I updated the drivers via ThinkVantage "Update my system" tool including the WiFi driver. Now, I have the Intel(R) WiFi Link 5300 AGN driver version 13.2.0.30. After installing this driver the WiFI Radio is not working: it is not possible to power on the WiFi radio. 
 
During this update the latest Intel PROSet/Wireless Tools program was installed. In the Diagnose menu the Hardware test fails for this device claiming that the wireless adapter is disabled or uninstalled. However, if I look at the Control Panel -> Device Manager -> Network Adapters -> Intel(R) WiFi Link 5300 AGN -> (Right click) Properties -> Driver tab then I can see that the device is enabled.
 
I have to add that the original driver worked perfectly and it is now very annoying that I cannot use the WiFi at all. Please, give me help how to solve this problem. I tried to visit the Lenovo Support & Downloads pages and download other X301 Vista 64-bit driver but the system tells me that I have the latest driver and the driver was not installed. Anyway, I am not sure what is the right solution or driver, so please help me. I am quite frustrated as I downloaded everthing officially by using the ThinkVantage tool given by Lenovo. I thought that these drivers offered by this tool were thoroughly tested.

Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
Could you try to do a "Roll Back" on the WLAN driver and see if it helps.

We're in hospital, she's I'll, I am 24/7 carer.

My Vostro 1720 connects promptly at home, WiFi or LAN.

Hospital has public use WiFi provided on each floor. Transmitter has TP-Link on the cover and twin aerials.

The Vostro can see transmitters for 4 floors, the signals come & go and, regularly disappear.

2 iPads & an iPhone stay connected unless, the signal disappears, in the same room. Signals are described as excellent or good.

The Vostro when I bring it in, after using at home,connects automatically. Twice has reached the stage when all 3 links I can see with a decent signal, can't connect, sometimes get asked for the password, run trouble shooter multiple times with no success. First time internet connection worked for 2 days, 2nd time for an hour, then couldn't log on to any link.

I'm puzzled why the Vostro doesn't hold the connection and the IOS devices do.

Public holiday over in a couple of days and I plan to catch the lady chief of the hospital and the IT manager.

I would be most grateful for queries, comments or, references to help in these encounters.

Thank you and regards

I am having similar difficulties, perhaps related?  I have a Lenovo G560 with wi-fi driver intel wi-fi link 1000 bgn.  The issue I have is with connection to my home network only.  This machine will successfully connect to other wireless networks, both public and secured (I provide a key).  I have tested as following:
I successfully connected to wireless network at work, McDonalds, Tim Horton's, etc.
I shut the machiee down, took it home and restarted at home.  I checked the wireless connections, and found my home network, 4 bars strength, and shows connected and internet active.  I launched IE and successfully connected to the internet.
Then, I connected the ethernet cable and our LAN hard-wired connection shows as connected, as well as the wireless network (they show up as two different network names), both connected.  I tested internet access and was successful.
I then disconnected the ethernet cable, again check the network connections, see my network listed and showing connected.  HOWEVER, now although the network says connected and with internet access, I am no longer able to connect to any websites, gives 'cannot display web page'.  Restarting the machine does not seem to correct the issue.

I have a "Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN" card installed in my new T61p. Can this card be used in 802.11n mode? The reason I'm asking is because although it seems to have some "advanced" options for "N", it only operates in 802.11g mode at best. My card doesn't connect when I set my wireless router to transmit in 802.11n mode only. Please advise. Thanks. Gary Grathen

Hey guys firstly thanks for taking the time to read my thread.

Recently completed a custom install of Windows 7 64bit version. Have installed all the Windows updates and drivers from HP.

My wireless adapter will connect to my network with static ip address set manually but the 'automatically detect settings' option will not work and I receive the message "Unidentified Network" in the task bar.

Any help will be appreciated.

_______

**SOLUTION**

1. Reset router and apply settings again. (**Remember to write down any user names and passwords used for your ISP**)

2. Use WPA2-PSK security rather than WPA

3. Connect to network using network password
