Problem with T500 Intel Wifi Link 5300 adapter connectivity

Question: Problem with T500 Intel Wifi Link 5300 adapter connectivity

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.

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.

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

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 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

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.

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'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?

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.

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.

I have a laptop with an Intel(R) WiFi Link 5300 AGN nic

1) Shows up in Device manager as healthy
2) Has latest driver as per manufacturer (hp elitebook 6930p) running win2008R2 server.
3) keyboard wifi indicator lites up
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. I did stumble across a Intel proset/Wireless wifi software utility manual diagnostic tool v15.6.0.0. When it runs, i get:

With the same tool i can run it manually on just selecetd tests (hardware, driver, radio, scan, associate, auth, signal, ping)
All of them fail (as expected except the driver test:

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,

I just bought a Sony Vaio with Intel Wireless WiFi Link 5100 Network Adapter.

I primarily use the notebook at my home & office network.
Home Network Router: Linksys WRT54G
Office Network Router: Beetel 450BXi (ADSL2+Modem)

The issue am facing is while am on to the network (mostly home network) suddenly it goes into limited connectivity & gets disconnected; while other PC's remain connected.

And then you have to either re-install the Wireless LAN driver or re-start numerous times.

This has been happening regularly. Pls assist in resolving the issue.

ThinkPad Intel WiFi 5300 Wireless Connection Drop Problem and Solution!!!I have read about Intel WiFi Link 5300 wireless connection drop problems on many different forums, including ThinkPads and many on other computer systems.  In the end, I was able to solve this problem using a simple approach documented below in the SOLUTION DESCRIPTION section. ************PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:- Wireless connectivity works but drops connection after a few minutes, sometimes as quickly as just a few minutes, other times taking as long as 30+ minutes. - The ability to replicate the problem is consistent, in that it always stops working in a relatively short period of time.  However, it is impossible to predict how long before the connection drops, although it usually happens in less than 30 minutes, sometimes even quicker. I received a W700 2 weeks ago, loaded with Windows XP Professional and the Intel WiFi Link 5300, etc. This connection drop problem happened to me while running Win XP SP2 as well as SP3. Note: I've heard that SP3 vs. SP2 matters and I've read some forum entries that indicate rolling back to SP2 fixes the problem.  However, I've seen other evidence/posts that indicate it doesn't make a difference.  Regardless, I am running Win XP Professional SP3.I tried updating to the latest Intel 5300 driver (12.1.2.1) alone and the problem did not go away.  I also tried updating multiple drivers via the Lenovo site.  The ...

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

Hey guys, I've been a X61T(tablet) user for over 2 years now and have never had WiFi connection issues, whatsoever. I upgraded to Windows 7 last year and things only got better.  But, today, after uninstalling a program called "Connectify", that basically transforms your laptop into a WiFi hotspot, my Wireless Radio JUST WON'T SWITCH ON! My Wireless Radio switch(that's in front) is on(I pushed it to the right). Up until yesterday, it was working great. I even used my Wireless Network to create a WiFi hotspot using Coonectify. I also deleted it from Connectify because it wasn't working. And then, I just uninstalled Connectify because I didn't see a point in creating a hotspot, when I have a Wireless Router at home. I rebooted my PC and Viola --- WIRELESS RADIO HAS BEEN DEAD! I don't see the green LED for WiFi on the extreme left blinking anymore. Gone!  Went to Device Manager and I didn't see any problems with the Intel WiFi Link 4695 Device driver. I still uninstalled it and downloaded the most recent one. STILL NOT WORKING! I checked the registries to see if I can find any entries from Connectify that may be causing the problem, but Nada! Nothing there as well! I'm feeling pretty downbeat because I got a new Wireless Router yesterday NETGEAR N-150 and not even 24 hours later, I'm back to using ETHERNET cable! I'd really appreciate it if someone can help me out here! Thanks.

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?

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!

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.

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 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 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. The computer rarely leaves the house.  Anyone have a suggestion of something I may have missed ?

Answer:T400 Intel 5300 AGN WiFi can't enable device on Windows 7

Hi ben2e,
 
Do run the ThinkVantage System Update on your T400 as it seems you have miss out a few drivers as your Fn + F5 keys is not mapped.
 
After you have done so, try pressing Fn + F5 and try to turn on the Wireless device from there.
 
Several things to check

In devmgmt.msc, is it turned on?

Answer:Malfunctioning wireless network adapter (Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AG)

I have similar experience too, but malfunction only happens when I am trying to connect to my school network which is WPA2-enterprise or WPA-enterprise. My wireless seems to work fine at home with WPA-personal. All other laptops work fine (so it is my laptop). The signal is fine because it register 100% strength. Basically, mine works for a few minutes, then it starts malfunctioning (school network only). During malfunction, it cannot detect any wireless network (even those that aren't WPA-enterprise). When it can detect wireless network again, it may or may not be able to reconnect to the school network.

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?

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 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. In the last month, the wireless connection has been dropping like mad ! And more recently, when it drops, it says it can't find any wireless networks. 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 !!

Thanks !!
 

Answer:Intel Wireless WiFi Link 5100 problem

It is always a VERY good idea to check the microfilters (if using ADSL) which are fitted into your phone sockets and make certain that you have microfilters in any socket in the house. Microfilters are very cheap to get hold of and its worth having a few spare.

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

Answer:Hey I have a WiFi adapter (Intel n 2200) problem on z580 windows 8 x64

hi aborida,
 
If this is the original Intel Wireless N2200 that came with the PC, can you try to:
 
1. Reboot the computer and repeatedly tap F2 to boot into the BIOS, when you're in, press F9 to load BIOS to defaults and press F10 to save and exti BIOS.
 
2. If you get the same error, try to Access the Startup Settings and choose Disable driver signature enforcement - if this fixes the problem, it's probably due to a not digitally signed driver, try to follow this guide.
 
If the above steps doesn't work, the BIOS might be blacklisting this wifi adapter as discussed in this thread or simply getting defective (you will need to contact lenovo for service to get this wifi card replaced).
 
 
Hope this helps.

I have an HP LP3065 30 inch external monitor, 2560x1600, that I'd like to drive off my T500. I am now on my second accell display-port to dual link dvi adapter and am still getting periodic blackouts of the monitor which last less than a second. At first I thought it was due to insufficient power to the adapter provided through the usb port, as has been reported in various places, so I got a high powered usb hub with ac adapter. Didn't help. Accell said it must be a lenovo problem and that they had "reported" the issue to lenovo. I exchanged the adapter for a new one on the off chance it might be a manufacturing issue but the new one is just the same. Has anyone gotten this configuration to work properly? If so, what dp-dual link dvi adapter are you using? Any special adjustments to your settings? I have the ATI Mobility Radeon 3650 card. All drivers are current as is the BIOS.

Answer:Monitor flickering with T500 with accell dual-link-dp adapter

Hi greigite,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo forum!
 
Is the Accell B087B-002B the adapter you are using? I haven't used such an adaper, but it looks very nice. It gets excellent reviews on Amazon, though at least one reviewer recommended connecting it to a powered USB hub to eliminate display flickering. You've done that already -- suppose you could try a different powered USB hub on the off chance that the first one is defective, but that seems unlikely.
 
You might have a look at the power-saving features of your ATI video card. I think you can right-click on your desktop to start "ATI Catalyst Control Center" (if not, think you can find it in the Start menu). One of the panels of CCC lets you adjust power saving profiles, and whether to reduce the vertical refresh rate below the usual 60 Hz. You could try turning the vertical refresh rate reduction feature off, and maybe try some different power-saving profiles.
 
How often does the flickering occur? Like, once every 20 minutes, or less often?
 
Best regards,
Frank

Dear all,

I thought I have met this problem before before my two wireless adapters both stopped working.

PCI-E INTEL 5300
TP-LINK WN821N

My case is a little different from those I found on this forum.

1. When I upgraded my thinkpad x200 to win7 64bit, I don't have "Wireless Network Connection", but I fixed it by stopping one setting of Kaspersky and it came back, so when I first found my PCI-E wireless didn't work, I thought the same thing happened, although I didn't remember the details, I tried the Kaspersky, don't work.

2. I updated the drivers, uninstall-install, start-stop-start WLAN AutoConfig... I have done a lot that can be searched on line, never worked for me.

3. Tragedy happened, I adjusted several common options on BIOS, then after several tries I made to make 5300 work, USB wireless died Don't know how to recover it, and back to my laptop again.

Could anyone here help me out? Really appreciate it! I have spent two days on this stuff, if no one can do this, I guess the only way is to reinstall the OS, that's the least thing I want to do.

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!

Firstly, the connection is very unstable. It drops out anytime, and speed also fluctuates a lot. Secondly, when I am in my room, all other devices, including a 5 year old Lenovo laptop can acccess a Wifi network, but the U41 fails to access and if it does, it frequently disconnects. Read online for a lot of solutions, it is faced by all the users of this adapter, but had no luck. Please look into this matter, and if necessary, call for a replacement of the wireless adapter. It would be good on Lenovo's part if it does so. It is really frustrating to buy a Notebook with such good configs & then facing such issues !!.

Answer:Lenovo Z50-70 CANNOT UPDATE Intel WiFi adapter drivers (Intel AC 3160)

What WiFi adapter is shown in Device manager? I have been scheptical of whether the current Lenovo offerings are up to speed on Win 10 many drivers are 1st releases. They pulled the listing for drivers on the T520 and I updated that just to see what might happen although I got it working its sluggish for that system. WiFi is marginal with the MS drivers and Lenovo offers nothing for it now. I tried to search on my Z70 but I was unable to determine which adapter was specifically installed. 3 were listed in Lenovo build spec's but that still did not tell me which one is in only the family name.

I bought a T400 laptop with a intel 5300 wireless card a few days ago, and i installed the newest driver from intel which is v12.1.2.1 for vista 32 bit.  i tried to ping the default gateway of my home, then the feedbacks between 300 - 500ms, sometimes goes to 900ms, and sometimes its directly time out. i also tried to use my another USB wireless card to test this problem on T400, then it was fine, the feedbacks constantly 206ms.  im using vista 32bit with SP1, and i tried reinstall vista as well, and test it without any software,then same problem.  but, on my another pc, the feedbacks of PING are fine, constantly 206ms, so anyone knows whats the problem? thx

Hi, My wifi router died last week so i bought a faster new one ''N'' 450Mps. I ordered/installed this 5300 wifi card for my SL500 but got this message at startup: 1802 Unauthorized card adapter is plugged in .......... Here's the card i ordered:http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=320392602621&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT I really hope my SL500 is upgradable from ''g'' to 5300 ''n'' card. Thanks!Erick

Answer:Problem with 5300 wifi upgrade

I cannot belive i am the only one who wants to upgrade to a 5x faster wireless card. I called Lenovo today and they told me this laptop is not compatible with these new N faster cards. First time i buy a Lenovo and never seen a computer outdated as fast as this one. Even EEE are easier to upgrade. Thanks anyway.Erick

Hello, I have searched the forums to see if there is a similar problem like the one I am having, but, did not come across. I bought my T500 in 2009 with XP installed. I have recently installed Windows 8.1 and started to experience problems with my Intel Wifi 5350. Upon restart, the driver is unable to connect to my home wifi. In order to connect, I need to go through trouble shooting and reset the wifi link, which, then, fixes the problem. When I first installed Windows 8.1, I did not have this problem. It seemed to have happened after a few auto updates. The driver software I have is 13.3.0.137 with a date of 8/15/2010. Driver provider is Microsoft.  I downloaded but not yet installed Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software for Windows 8.1 Wireless_17.1.0_De164.exe. I am not sure if this will fix it. I wanted to ask this first before I do something. If you have had this before or know the answer, could you please post specific links to which drivers I should install manually? Thanks! I appreciate if you could be specific in your responses as I am not super tech savvy.

So I got a T500 a while back,but opted for the somewhat crappy Intel WIFI 5100. It works ok, but I have a MIMO router and I feel like there is much to be gained from having 3Tx and 3Rx instead of the current 1Tx and 2Rx. Transmission speed is only so useful to me, but quality connection (low ping, less losses) for VoIP and Team Fortress 2 really does matter (thank god for the 3650, that game runs great). I took a few minutes yesterday to open the computer and check that I have all 3 antennas built into the computer. Thankfully, I do! The white antenna is just sitting unused! So that's the first good news for you guys out there. It seems that Lenovo built 3 antennas in at least some of the T500s with the 5100. Mine is a CTO from May 09. In any case, now I'm facing the choice of going for an "old generation" 5350 with 3x3 and WiMAX or, and that's the big question, one of the newer Intel N cards, such as the 6250 and 6300. But since they're part of the next Centrino architecture, I'm not sure it would run with the Montevina platform that I have... Anybody has any experience setting up one of these new cards on a Montevina platform, is it possible?  

Answer:T500 Montevina, 3 antennas, can I upgrade to Intel WIFI 6250/6300?

You need to stick with the cards for the generation of your system. So for 3x3 it's the 5300 or 5350 (wimax). The newer cards will not be recognized by your ThinkPad. No worries though, the newer cards will not get you faster n speeds anyway.

I have a Sony Vaio with intel 5100 AGN wireless adapter & Vista OS.

The problem I have is that 9 times out of 10 it will not connect to my home or office wireless network. Eventually it does, though only after switching the adapter on and off several times or rebooting the machine. Sometimes I also have to restart the wireless router.

It will always seem to connect in that I get the connected icon in the notification area (though often without the internet globe symbol) though it will not connect to the net or to any other machine or printer on the network.

Some other useful info:
Both the home and office routers are the same model (Comtrend) and both work fine with other PC's

I often have bluetooth problems also - can take a while for bluetooth to start (I use a bluetooth mouse) and I have 3 unknown bluetooth peripheral devices in device manager

I have McAfee internet security installed

I have tried:
Disabling the firewall
Removing and readding the wireless and bluetooth devices
Disabling IPv6
Driver & OS update
A clean install

Nothing has resoved this issue which is becoming a pain as I can now spend up to half an hour each time trying to connect.

Any help is very much appreciated.

Answer:Wifi connectivity with intel 5100 AGN

Hi -

The Intel 5100 is one of the best wifi's available. I have one in this system and it performs flawlessly.

I think you'll find McAfee to be the problem here. I suggest that you remove it. Download the McAfee Removal Tool (MRT) to your desktop. RIGHT-click on the MRT icon, select "Run as Admin". When it finishes, re-boot.

MRT - http://download.mcafee.com/products/...tches/MCPR.exe

Then reset the Windows Firewall to its default settings -
START | type FirewallSettings.exe into the start search box | click on FirewallSettings.exe above | select the Advanced Tab | click on "Restore Defaults" | Click Apply, OK

Use AVG for a/v if you wish - http://free.avg.com/download-avg-ant...s-free-edition

Make sure that you have the most recent Intel 5100 wifi driver. Go to Intel's site -

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Prod...ProductID=3062

You can check your system manufacturer's site, but I have found they are ususlly 8-12 months behind.

At intermittent intervals, my Intel PRO/100 M adapter loses link, which post warning to event log. It immediately comes back up (with Link up informational post) and reestablishes connection. My wireless connected computers likewise lost internet connection, resulting in momentary loss of internet connection. Frustratingly, it always interrupts the VPN connection I use for work.

I've updated drivers, etc. Device seems to be working properly except for these frequent (7-8 times per day) interruptions.

Has anyone experienced this before? Thanks

you could try uninstalling the driver and then going on intel's site and letting intel scan your system. it should come up with a driver for you and install it for you.

I recently purchased a Pavilion 17t at Costco. Overall, I'm liking the  computer. But it has one major issue, that is unacceptable for a laptop computer. The wifi keeps not working. I haven't found a pattern to this either. I will be connected to my wifi network, and then suddenly the internet will stop working. It still shows connected to the router, but can't reach the internet. I have contacted HP support twice about this now, and their solution has not resolved the issue. The BIOS has been updated, the driver has been updated, Windows 10 has been updated, the wireless driver has been uninstalled and reinstalled. I still have the issue. If I attempt a restart when this happens, the restart takes a very, very long time. I've clocked it at 2 minutes before I did a manual power button restart on it. But the restart issue seems to happen every time the wifi issue happens(assuming I do a restart). I've tried turning the wifi off and on, and that proves difficult. It will often turn back on as soon as I turn it off, or not respond at all to my attempts. If I connect a wired connection to the laptop, I am able to connect to the internet again. All other devices on the wireless router will continue to work fine when this computer does not. What would be my next steps to try and resolve this issue? What more information might you need from me? HP Pavilion 17-g133-cl

Answer:WiFi limited connectivity issues (Intel AC 3165)

(Edits: Add product and OS info, correct a few grammatical mistakes. Add the "Click 'OK'" step.) Alright, I've been all over the internet trying to fix this as I had the same experience. I've found a solution and I signed up on these forums just to post it. This problem has been a nightmare and I wanted to share. My machine is also the HP Pavilion 17 G1337-CL, which has the Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless ac3165. (I did make one hardware change by swapping out the HDD for an SSD) The problem that I had was produced by Windows power management system. When I went just a few minutes without accessing the internet it would close down. I could have a browser window open, but if I was not actively sending or receiving data, the connection would shut down. This is the two part solution (Windows 10): PART 1Right-click windows start menuSelect "Device Manager"Open the "Network adapters" drop downRight-click "Inter(R) Dual Band Wireless AC-3165"Select "Properties"Select "Power Management" tabUncheck "Allow computer to turn off this device to save power"Click "Ok" PART 2Right-click "RealTek PCIe FE Family Controller"Select "Properties"Select "Power Management" tabUncheck "Allow computer to turn off this device to save power"Click "Ok" Restart the computer (don't know if it is necessary, but I always restart) That fixed it for me. I had found Part 1 on a number of forums, but I had to figure out Part 2 on my own.

Please help! I had bought this HP Pavillion computer with the Windows 8.1 OS and did the upgrade to Windows 10 when it came out. My wifi had been working fine until a couple months ago. Now, I lose connectivity constantly. I have searched forums and tried everything I can find. I have the Realtek RTL8188EE 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi Adapter. Nothing is wrong with our router, as all other electronic devices in the house are connecting to the internet just fine. It is located in the same room, and never had issues connecting to it before. I rolled back to Windows 8.1, made sure I had the latest adapter drivers, then rolled back to older versions, tried changing minor settings on the adapter (i.e. making sure the box in Power Management is unchecked). I uninstalled the driver and deleted the software, then restarted. Checked to make sure the wireless encryption is WPA. Is there anything else I can try? I use this computer for my business and need it to work. Nothing I have tried has solved the issue.

My HP ENVY dv6 is usually hardwired so I rarely use wifi.  My laptop was upgraded to Windows 10 some months ago and I just tried to use wifi  the other day and it wouldn't work.  Network and Internet only shows Ethernet, no WiFi.  In Device Manager it only shows Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller.  It doesn't show a WiFi adapter.   I'm not sure what to do.   Hopefully someone can help me.  In the meantime I will continue searching.

This is driving me mad. I've been through multiple forums/Intel's support site/Dell's support site/Microsoft's support site...and nobody seems to have a straight solution.

My new laptop came with Windows 8 pre-installed. I updated all drivers from Dell's website and installed the latest Intel PROSet WIFI drivers v15.6.0.0. I have not installed any anti-virus software and I don't see any installed by Dell. I'm not using any extra firewall software beyond the native windows one and I have not changed it;s configuration. Any software out there that can scan your PC for A-V and/or firewall issues?

None of my other devices have any connectivity issues at all. If I use an Ethernet cable the laptop works perfectly so it's definitely a WIFI issue.

I've disabled the Bluetooth adapter and the Ethernet adapter so that only the WIFI adapter is left enabled. I've tried disabling the Intel drivers and just using Windows to connect. I've tried using fixed IP address instead of DHCP. I've reset the router...basically I've tried all of the obvious things. I also tried the suggestions to use command line instruction to reset the IP stack/etc...but they had no effect.
I feel like it's the drivers themselves. Should I remove the Intel drivers completely?

Answer:Win8 Intel WIFI limited connectivity / invalid IP config

Welcome to the forum Rob.

Do the other systems have WiFi working because according to your ipconfig/all you aren't picking up anything from the router here.

When you reset the router, did you hold down the hidden button on the side for 30 seconds or did you just reboot the router?

Assuming the router is working and other wireless devices can connect.

Have you tried removing the preinstalled trial version A/V software which is typically preinstalled on your factory Dell system?

Depending on which one is installed you would need to use the special removal tool to get rid of it completely or problems will ensue.

It can also help to remove all the preinstalled bloatware from your new system. Decrapifier will locate those preinstalled programs so that they can safely be removed.

I'm having a really annoying problem which is making my laptop almost unusable and a hassle to use. After a while of my laptop being on, my wireless network adapter will suddenly get "limited connectivity", and won't connect to the internet.
Disabling and enabling the adapter will cause my computer to freeze, requiring a restart. The same with troubleshooting. The only thing which fixes this is a fresh reboot, however it always occurs again within the hour.
Sometimes the entire adapter will randomly just disable itself, and the computer will completely freeze, meaning I have to press the power on/off. Sometimes the adapter will just disappear from Device Manager. Searching for "plug and play" devices will cause it to freeze.
Apart from having to reboot, what also seems to work is disabling the wifi from PC Settings, putting the computer to sleep, then awaking it and turning wifi back on. I've had to do that 6 times whilst typing this post.
I've tried flushing my dns, registering it, renewing and releasing. Assigning a static DNS address. All those things. Though I may have done them wrong.

Answer:Wifi network adapter randomly gets limited connectivity and freezes

Are you able to get your hands on a USB WiFi adapter to see if that also has the same problems?
It might also be worth checking to see how the Laptop behaves if you connect it to the router with an ethernet cable and disable WiFi.
