Use Intel 6300 WiFi card from another laptop in X220?

Question: Use Intel 6300 WiFi card from another laptop in X220?

I also just ordered a x220 with the 6205. However, i also have a 6300 card in another laptop. Can i just open up the x220, disconnect it, plug in the 6300 one, connect it, put it back together, and will it work? Sorry if i am hijacking the thread.

If not, what is the best wifi card available that is supported by the y580? OR if there are better options with a usb wifi adapter, please let me know 

Answer:Does the y580 Support Intel 6300 wifi card?

HiAccording to page 79(80) of the y580 hardware maintenance manual, y580 does not support intel 6300 card. You can check the same page for compatible wlan cards. They have s. no. 15http://support.lenovo.com/en_IN/downloads/detail.page?DocID=UM015371And i am not sure about usb adapters since i haven't used one till now.Regards

Hi all, My trusty T420s (4172-CTO) has been rock solid for years but recently has started having issues with wifi disconnects. I've tried multiple wifi drivers, flashing my router firmware, even a new router. Nothing has helped. I am left with the conclusion that my card (Intel 6250) has got to go. I am familiar with the whitelisting issue, but was wondering if there was a card I could use instead that would work without a bios mod. I checked the HMM and saw that the Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300, FRU 60Y3233, is listed for my application. I can get one on ebay fairly cheap. But, I see the 6300 has three antennas, not two like my 6250. Does this mean it won't work in my T420s? Would I just leave one of them disconnected? Which one? Is there another card, already whitelisted, that would work? Failing this option, I will go with another card (Intel 7260 unless somone has a better idea) and a modded BIOS. I have found a couple of forums and threads that walk through the process (and provide the BIOSes) but if someone has a recommendation for a site/service to use, I'd appreciate a heads up via PM as I can see such discussion isn't likely weclcome publicly.  Thanks, all. -kj-

Answer:Upgrading Wifi-card in T420s ... will an Intel 6300 work? Other recommendations? Modded BIOS?

You need 3 antennas for 450 Mbps speed. You can go with 2 but leave the middle one open but it won't do any good since both 6250 and 6300 will run at 300 Mbps and both use the same drivers so they're very likely to behave the same. IMO, if your warranty is expired, just flash the modded BIOS and get the 7260AC which uses different drivers than Centrino. You'll be getting 866.7 Mbps speed on it with 2 antennas as well as 45 - 55 MB/s of actual transfer rate. 2.4 GHz WiFi reliability is a hit or miss though which is the reason I replaced it with ASUS 802.11ac.

I experience the following problem with a new one week old Lenovo X220 built with Intel Advanced-N 6205: After 3-5 hours it disconnects from a wifi router and would not be able to connect to it until I reboot the router. It happened the first time on Friday, I was connected to our Verizon FIOS router and after 5 hours I lost connection and won't be able to connect for 2 hours trying every possible thing until I rebooted  the router, what I didn't have to do with countless number of other laptops/cell phones. Now X220 loses wifi connection every 3 hours and won't be able to connect until the router is restarted. All other devices in a house work perfectly fine, my roommates probably already hate me for rebooting the router. Router: Actiontec M1424WR (Verizon FIOS) Other devices which were and still are able maintain connections with this router for many hours w/o similar problem:- my old Dell Latitude E6400- my Samsung Captivate cell phoneand bunch of other HP laptops, macbooks etc. What I tried and what did not help:- rebooting X220- turning X20 off/on- installing the latest drivers for Intel 6205 card for the Intel website- installing/uninstalling Intel Wifi tools and Access Connections- restoring from a backup (not a complete factory setting restore)- setting DNS/IPs manually for IPv4 and turning off IPv6 I tried to collect some logging with netsh tracing and it only tells that the driver disconnects during acquisition.Some clue I dis...

Answer:Wifi issue with X220 (intel wifi card); It stops connecting to a router after 3 hours

When it is reproducible in Win 7, went to Ubuntu Live CD and everything works there.So the problem is either inside:- router- Win 7 Intel 6205 drivers including shipped and the latest one  I don't think it is that low level though as I thought, as in Win 7 it tries to reconnect each time disconnecting during "Identifying Network" stage, and setting IP, gateway and DNS manually do not help.  UPDATE: I was able to update Verizon FIOS router to the latest firmware and switched it from WEP to WPA just in case.

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.

Hey all, been surfing the google god for a few days but can't seem to find a secure answer that makes me happy. Just got a new T530 model 2359 laptop for my new job. Other then one stuck pixel that refuses to go away im pretty happy with it as I upgraded the CPU to the i5 3320 cpu model with the nvidia NVS 5400m GPU so it can power dual 24" monitors on my new Lenovo dock.  What sucks is that my manager got me the wrong wifi card, the standard thinkpad 1x1 b/g/n wireless card so I can't connect to 5ghz and or dual band routers like I have at my home which I really want for reliable and fast wireless cause I will be using it a lot around my work building as I do IT support for users so I wanna be able to use all the antenna's to help my range. I took the laptop apart and I do see a third wire not connected to the thinkpad 1x1 mini card so should be able to use 3 antenna's on my T530?  My big question is which 6300 card would the correct one for my T530? I know apparently there are "white label" cards from IBM that don't work in certain machines but considering I'm putting it into a IBM, I would think I would be ok? Also, I do have an HD webcam buit in and I've heard that apparently some Thinkpad models you can't use three antenna and have the webcam working?  I'm curious if this white label centrino 6300 is the one I needhttp://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Ultimate-n-6300agn-802-11a-572511-001/dp/B008UOQVYC/ref=sr_1_1?s=elec... Or is it this o...

Answer:Just got new T530 with wrong wireless card. Which model of Intel 6300?

Hello and welcome,
 
I'm not sure either one of those cards will work for you.  The Intel-branded board, certainly not.  The "IBM" card, probably not - unless the white list in BIOS has been updated since the published parts list was generated.
 
The parts list is your friend:  http://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkPad/t530_fru_bom.pdf
 
It listst the card models and the FRU numbers that are white-listed.  I don't see your 60Y3193 FRU listed.
 
The card you select must be FRU-branded or theres's no hope of getting it past the white list.

Hi,

I recently installed a new wifi card into my laptop in order to give it dual-band support.

However, although everything went good in regards to hardware and installing drivers, the computer fails to actually use the wifi card, and insists that the card is "off", even though it's enabled in the device manager, the computer recognizes it, and the computer is not on airplane mode.

There is no physical switch on the laptop or the card, the function key does nothing (except flip between airplane mode and not-working mode), and even the diagnostics insist that I need to "enable wireless capability".

Help?

Answer:New Intel 6300 Wlan card does not work in Satellite P850/49

Not quite sure if you would be able to get this card working.
In many cases new modules and hardware parts don?t work because of the compatibility issues. Even if the module supports an mini PCI standard, this does not mean that all mini PCI Wlan card would be compatible. This is a big misapprehension.

However, I found some interesting tips on the Intel page:
http://www.intel.com/support/wireless/wlan/sb/CS-025332.htm

What you could do is this:
In Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network Connections, right-click on the adapter. Check if the adapter can be enabled there.

You can also try to install the Intel? PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility
You can turn on or off the WiFi radio at the Intel? PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility main window. The status icon on main window displays the current state of the radio. At the main window, click WiFi On or WiFi Off to turn the radio on or off.

In case this would not work, I assume the notebook cannot enable the Wlan card due to the different pin assignment.
For example some mini PCI WLan cards needs to mask the pin 20 (thin strip of electrical tape and stuck it over pin 20) in order to get it enabled.
Search on Google for mini pcie pin 20, and you will find that you are not the only ones with this type problem.

I have two machines with the exact same Intel 6300 AGN wireless cards.  Both running Widowns 7 64-bit.  Both have same versions of Intel drivers installed.  The X230 sees and connects to my 5Ghz wireless network.  The T430 sees only the 2.4Ghz network.  The 5Ghz network is not even displayed in its list of available networks. The T430 sees other 5Ghz networks in the neighborhood.  Using inSSIDer I can see that the wifi card is functioning on the 5Ghz frequency as it displays 3 other nearby networks.  But I have no way to test connection since those are not my networks and are secured (as is mine). Windows also shows those neighboring 5Ghz networks in the list of available connections.  Only my own 5Ghz network is absent from both lists. Both my 2.4 and 5Ghz bands are broadcasing their SSID's.  All MAC filtering is correct and both machines are allowed on the networks.  The WPA keys are correct. I have even copied the network settings from the working X230 using the "Copy this network profile to a USB flash drive" option from the wireless network properties window and added the 5Ghz network to the T430 using the USB key.  So I know the settings are identical. I ran Lenovo diagnostics Wireless Quick Test on both machines and got identical successfull results. The only thing amusing about this issue is that the X230 wifi card was purchased from an eBay seller in China and that is the one that wo...

Answer:T430 with Intel Ultimate-N 6300 wireless card cannot see 5Ghz network

After that long-winded post I solved this myself.  I went back and looked at the wireless network properties on both machines and saw that despite copying the setup from one machine to the other the settings were not identical!  On the T430 the "Enable Intel connection settings" was disabled where it is enabled on the X230.  I enabled that option and suddenly my 5Ghz network appeared and I was able to connect to it! Now I am still puzzled by this because prior to doing the "Copy this network profile..." method via USB key from the working X230 to the non-working T430 I had explicity checked that option on both machines and both were enabled.  Yet the T430 was not seeing the 5Ghz channels. Bottom line is this issue is fixed.

Answer:Can I replace stock wifi card with an Intel 6235 Wifi/Bluetooth PCI-e card in my N580?

Hello and welcome,
 
Whatever card you use, it MUST have a Lenovo FRU number.  Cards that will pass the BIOS whitelist have been modified to provide a specific subsystem ID to BIOS.  Reputable sellers will list the Lenovo FRU if their card is compatible.
 
For example, a generic Intel 6150NX will not pass the whitelist, but a 6150NX with a 20002543 FRU number will pass.

Good Morning to all of you! I'm searching for some advice for some problem which is troubling me lately. It's really not a big deal but it's bugging me: Every time I boot my x220 it will take 2-3 minutes to connect to my wifi network. I know it's not a big secret that all this lenovo tools installed are slowing down the computer and as a consequence the wifi software will be started with a delay but maybe someone of you knows a way or two to work around this? Maybe I can somehow prioritize the start of the wifi software? I appreciate every advice I can get.

For a W530, I have the Lenovo driver for the 6300 WLAN card installed.  It's something like v15.13.02, dated July of 2014.  On the intel site, they've posted v17.14.0, dated Jan 2015.  Any big advantage or drawback to updating. Anyone using the later version?  Also, there's a program call PROset/wireless that can be downloaded with the driver.  Useful?  Not? Thanks.

Answer:Driver for Intel 6300 Ultimate-N: Intel or Lenovo

Hello,
Back in the XP-era I occasionally had problems with using the Intel-provided drivers instead of Lenovo's, but that problem disappeared in the Vista-era.  I'm using the Intel-provided drivers on my W530 and no issues noted.
The PROset/Wireless tools allow sysadmins to manage a computer's wireless network card remotely.  If you're not doing that, I would suggest staying with the smaller "driver-only" downloads.

Hi guysHave an issue with an X220 where the system was ready to be sent to the user, I did system update the night before deploying which included a firmware update, next morning the wifi was disabled. (original bios 1.28 I think, new bios 1.4).The wifi card is no longer detected by the system at all, indicating the firmware has disabled the card. I managed to force it back to a previous BIOS revision but the issue persists, I then rolled to 1.4 official again and have tried the modded bios v1.4 (without wifi whitelist).I have tried the original card in a different unit and it works, and have tried the spare units wifi card (same model card) in this X220, also not detected. So it seems the BIOS is still blocking all similar Intel cards. Interestingly if I try a Broadcom card from a different model Lenovo, it is detected in the mini wifi slot.So this confirms the slot is operational.I cannot use it however since it is a full size card and does not fit in the mini wifi section in the x220.Last idea I had was to try all the cards in the 2nd (full length) slot but that will not pick up any Wifi cards at all. Anybody have an idea where to look to enable the Intel cards again? I have seen mention of a pin which is used for this but surely with the modded bios this should not be an issue? Note that with any of the intel cards inserted no devices are detected in Dev Man, and no option to switch them on via Fn+F5 (wifi option missing) Thanks for any suggestion...

Answer:X220 wont detect Intel mini wifi, detects full size Broadcom, BIOS 1.43 w/o whitelist

HiWhat's the wifi card model, its p/n, Lenovo FRU? If this card isn't approved to use in x220, do you get the lock screen with error 1802 message during the laptop booting with original BIOS? Regarding the patched BIOS any question should be addressed to its author, it's not a deal of this official forum.BIOS v.1.4 wasn't released ever. Intitial, factory released version 1.04 dated 2011 year is outdated. The recent version is 1.43. It's impossible to rollback this version to any previous version, 1.28 including.

Dear all,

I own a satellite A100-383 PSAARE. I would like to upgrade the wifi card, as the one it's installed right now (PRO/Wireless 3945ABG), does not give all the speed the line can achieve (100Mb down). Does anyone know if the card intel 5300 AGN is compatible with my laptop. If it is not I would very much appreciate suggestions.

Thank you

Answer:Satellite A100 - Upgrading WIFI card from Intel 3945ABG to Intel 5300AGN

Don?t think that someone can give you a proper answer since the compatibility depends on the BIOS?
If the BIOS would support the new WLan card, then you could use it for sure?

The point is that motherboards is able to handle the miniPCI WLan cards? the module is just plugged to the miniPCI slot and its removable?
So there is just an question regarding the BIOS support and I?m afraid you will need to test this at your own risk

Even if it was recognized in the slot, I'm pretty confident that the card would be rejected by the BIOS whitelist with an 1802 boot-time error.

Hi everybody, I ran into some issues with my X220 some weeks back and have been trying to fix them to no avail. As far as I can remember I took some time a few weeks back to install the 1.40 firmware-update and also updated the battery-firmware in the same routine. I'm not sure If it was immediately afterwards (since I'm using a dock with LAN), but the wifi-card (Intel 6205) wasn't recognized by the OS anymore. No entry in the device manager! Here's what I've seen/tried so far:1) What I was firstly able ot see was that the device would sometimes show up after returning from sleep when not in the dock.2) Since I have an Ericson WWAN-card i switched mPCIe places. WWAN-card works in both slots. No recognition of the Wifi-card in both. >> So it doesn't seem to be related to mPCIe or the board.3) My guess was a faulty card, so I tried a newly-bought Intel 7260 Wifi-card in the slot.3.1) The Wifi-card must have been recognized by the BIOS, since the whitelist-fault was presented and I had to remove it to even be able to boot again.3.2) As the warranty wasn't my concern anymore anyways I flashed a whitelist-disabled version of the 1.40 firmware. As promised, I was able to boot with the 7260 card.3.3) Yet still, the card is not presented in the device manager.4) Since my Windows 7-installation had quite some time on its shoulders I reckoned that maybe another OS would be able to properly recognize the card. I just freshly installed Windows 10 and again - not... Read more

Answer:X220 doesn't recognize Wifi-card

Update:I used a debian live installation running from a pendrive to look for detected hardware. No wifi was found - again for both cards.I'm really lost for ideas at this point. What really irritates me is that the BIOS/UEFI recognizes the 7260 card with correct VID and PID. Yet still the cards are somehow (I guess) not made available to the operating system.On another note: I've just noticed that I posted in the wrong forum section. It's about an X220, so the "ThinkPad X Series Laptops" forum would be the correct one. Could a moderator maybe move this topic?

I've read from various places that Lenovo whitelists WLAN/WWAN cards in BIOS. What level of whitelisting do they do? Will this block all aftermarket cards? I'm interested in installing a Killer 1102N Wifi card (primarily because of the control over the network stack the driver provides the user with). Will I have any problems with this? Do I need to hack my BIOS etc? Heres a link to the actual wifi card product http://www.bigfootnetworks.com/killer-wireless-n-1102/  I'm only purchasing this aftermarket because Lenovo doesn't actually offer this card in their notebooks

Answer:X220 Tablet + Killer 1102 N Wifi Card?

http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Problem_with_unauthorized_MiniPCI_network_card
 
The reason for the whitelist is to match the card to the antennas to comply with FCC regulations regarding interference.  Most mfgrs. do the same thing.  The link explains it fairly well.  The card has to be Lenovo branded.  You can take the exact same two wireless cards and if one is not Lenovo branded, it will throw the error.  
 
And yes, you would have to modify the bios.

I have a 5ghz N-only network on a Linksys WRT600n. A laptop with this Intel 6300 network will not connect to the router when it is in N mode. If I set the router to A mode or mixed A/N, it will connect in A mode.

Any ideas? I have checked all of the wireless adapter settings in Windows and on the router. I have tried the 20/40/Auto band options on the router, and it will not connect. It doesn't even give me any usefull error message, just that it won't connect. I am pretty much stumped.

Drivers are up to date.

EDIT: Further testing reveals that it won't connect to the 2.4ghz if it is N-only as well. So G and A connections work, N don't.

Quickest way would be to pop off the back and first check if its a soldered in item. If it is plug-in, then count the pins on the connector and then go find a matching card version. I did that on my Acer laptop, but then, they are pretty much always a plug in thing. For compactness, they may be soldered in on the Y13.

I am stumped with regards on how to fix this one.

I am running a custom built Sager NP-5135, Windows 7 64bit system.

I am actually multi booting this system (Running Linux on one partition, and Windows 7 on 2 other partitions).

The Windows 7 partitions are, for all intensive purposes, the same (configuration wise).

Here is the strange part, the wireless connection on one of the windows installations (Call it Win7_OS_#2) is perfect - great connection speed, range is great, etc, etc (So the 6300 hardware is NOT faulty).

The other Windows 7 partition (Call it Win7_OS_#1) has a terrible time connecting -- the speed is slow (read it as "unusable"). It wasn't always like this, and I don't recall when it became this way as I normally connect using a wired connection.

On Win7_OS_#1 I have uninstalled the driver, reinstalled the latest driver, scanned for virus', trogans, malware, found nothing, and I still can not get it to work properly.

I have checked all the property and advanced settings for the Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 card -- they are set exactly the same as on the Windows 7 installation that is working perfectly.

Does anyone have an idea as to what else I could check to try and resolve the issue (without having to reinstall windows 7 again)?

Answer:Install wifi PCIe on Compaq 6300 pro

It is unlikely to work because you will probably need to install a PCIe x1 wifi card that is half height (low profile). The wifi card you are enquiring about is full height and there will not be enough space in you OC's case.

I am considering adding wireless 802.11ac capability to my wife's and my ThinkPads.  Both machines are running Windows 7.  They already have pretty fast wireless connections, but I assume 802.11ac would be even faster.  I already have an ASUS RT-AC68U Dual-band Wireless-AC1900 router. Has anyone actually tried this ASUS adapter on one of these ThinkPads to see (a) whether it works and (b) whether it is any faster?  I tried to install several different brands of wireless adapters on a much older T40p ThinkPad running XP and none would work. As these adapters receive widely mixed reviews on compatibility and functioning, I'd like to be certain someone has actually done it successfully on these machines before I attempt it. Thank you!  :-)

Answer:ASUS USB-AC56 with Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 on W520 & W530

Nice router.  I have the AC66U at home.  Tip off for you... scrap the homegrown firmware and step up to Merlin's Tower for dreamy screaming throughput. As for your dilemma, ditch the USB dongle and just get her a real Centrino 6300 or 7260 adapter for $30 and plop it in the machine.  Pssst, the 6300 performs as well as the 7260 at range.  The 7260 only wins if you're within 20 feet of the Asus.

Folks, When I ordered my Laptop, I decided not to skimp on the Network Card, so I ordered the  Ultimate-N 6300 AGN. After looking over the doc's I noticed that this card supported WiDi -- Wiresless Display.  After doing some research at the I  Intel website I decided that I could really use this. So I purchased a DLINK Mainstage device and connected it to the DVI port on me TV. The setup using Lenovo's drivers did not go well, so I downloaded the newest drivers from Intel. In a few minutes everything was working.  The TV displayed a code .. Which I entered in to a prompt  from the Widi tool. The quality of the display is incredible, Netflix was much better running on the Laptop with Widi then using the Smart TV connection. There is a nice small wigit that allows you to switch the streaming video between the PC and the TV. This was a nice surprise .. -Fred

Answer:My Experience with Intel's WiDi using T520 and Centrino(R) Ultimate-N 6300 AGN - Very Positive

My experience matches your with one exception; based on reading I downloaded the latest drivers directly from Intel before I installed my receiver, the Belkin ScreenCast, which appears to be the D-Link MainStage with a Belkin Label on it. True 1080p video from my T520 to my 55" flatscreen and true multitasking with the video onscreen and whatever else I want to do on my laptop screen. The Intel applet checks for driver updates and firmware updates automatically. I've already had a firmware update that was absolutely smooth and trouble free. I wonder why Lenovo didin't mention this capability in its sales literature for machines equipped with the 6300 card?

You'll need a modded BIOS in order to use that card in R500. Stock BIOS will not allow the machine to boot with it.

Hi,
I'm using a W520 with the Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 AGN Wireless Module. Whenever there is network activity the whole system sound is very choppy. DPC Latency Checker shows the following:

The part from -15 on is when I'm opening webpages/downloading stuff. When I disable the Wireless Module, it's all fine (green with seldom yellow spikes). So I'm guessing the Wireless Module is the problem. Driver Version is 14.0.1.2. Any ideas are very welcome. Thanks.

I recently purchased a refurbished T410 as I always have been interested in Thinkpad's for a while and felt it was time to take the plunge. I have been using it without any issues until I installed Lenovo Update and once I installed it I let it do its thing and update all that it needed to one thing being the BIOS. Once everything updated and it restarted itself I was at my desktop and I could not get a wireless signal only to find out that my wireless adapter wasn?t even being recognized. I pulled up device manager and looked into the issue and saw that it has a Code 52. This message followed: Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52) After doing some research I found out that upon boot you can press F8 and boot into the Windows advanced boot options and select "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement." Once I did this the problem was solved but here is the kicker, this is needed to be done every time you power on the T410 from shut down. Has anyone encountered this sort of problem before or can help me and point me in a specific direction to help fix this issue?

Answer:Lenovo Update installed on T410 now have Code 52 on Intel Wireless 6300 AGN adapter

I figured out the problem and long story short what I did was basically go into the device manager find the wireless adapter and then highlighted it.Once it was highlighted I right clicked it and selected uninstall.Then I restarted my thinkpad and upon restart Windows 7 automatically reloaded the drivers to it and then it was back in action and is now in working order.

Just got my Y510P laptop and after the installation of Chrome, I noticed that the text are blurry. That bugs me!! I tried to set the GT 755M as my default GPU card, but for some reason it is not letting me do it. It's running Intel's 4600 card as the default GPU card. So I tried to disable the Intel card, but after doing that, I can't even access my GT 755M card.  Not sure how to get about in setting my 755M card as the default GPU. I already installed the latest driver but its not helping. This is not even an SLI setup, so I don't know why it is doing this. I'm guessing Windows 8.1 is the main reason. Anyways, if I can't fix this, I'll most probably return it. But any help in fixing this would be great. Thanks

Answer:laptop Y510P is not using my GT 755M card but Intel's 4600 card. Default GPU is Intel 4600!!

Bump and Ditto on this issue. My y510p came with the Dual SLI ultrabay. I recently pulled the second GPU so I could install a second harddrive, and now instead of the GT 750M, my drivers default to the Intel 4600, but not everywhere; Photoshop is using my Geforce, PhysX is using my Geforce, but the monitors are using the 4600. STRANGE. BTW alamak, there are two reasons your text may be blurry, unrelated to the graphics driver:1. Are you using an external monitor on the VGA port? I have two monitors plugged in, the monitor plugged into HDMI has crisp text, the VGA monitor is blurry. They are identical monitors. (I wish this thing came with a DisplayPort like my old Dell XPS 15, I could plug four monitors into one port!)2. Your DPI settings are set larger than 100%. Chrome especially has this problem. If you are using a DPI higher than 100%, Chrome looks awful. Fix this by going to (right-click Desktop > Screen Resolution > Make text bigger or smaller > change the slider to Smallest). However this will set your desktop to use the LCD's native resolution, and everything will be tiny.

Answer:Intel Pro wifi card upgrade for R51

You can't use 3945ABG since it's a mini-PCI-e card, and your machine calls for mini-PCI.If you're keen on Intel, 2200BG would be my preferred choice. Also, IBM (Atheros) b/g and a/b/g card will work just fine in that R51.As for Linux, Ubuntu is always a good place to start IMO.Good luck.

I have a new system Intel DG965WH with 1GB and a Core 2 Duo E6300 processor with a WD 320 GB SATA drive. When I start the installation of either XP or Media Version XP they both get to the point of loading in memory the necessary files and when you are prompted for "enter" to continue it resets the machine and you start all over again.

Has any one had experience loading either of these operating systems on to this type of system or perhaps can point me in the right direction as to the problem? Could it be memory? I am using a Kingston KVR667D2N5K2/1G which should be ok for this type of mother board as it is 1.8v memory.

Does your N-2230 card have a FRU number on it? If it doesn't then it won't work with your E130, since it is not sourced from Lenovo.

Answer:T420 using Intel N5300 wifi card

Hey Mcdull,
 
Lenovo no longer supports intel N5300 but being as they both use PCI-E slots I would suggest you try it and see if your computer recognize the card. Then you would have to use a lower version of the driver version 15.1.0.18.

My computer is running on Windows 7 Professional 32bit. It has worked fine for the last 2 years. But recently, my wifi card has started me giving me problems. It detects the wireless networks but connects to them only for around 10-15 minutes after which the connection is not even visible in the list. Then after 30-40 minutes, it can connect but the same problem is there.

Also, I tried to make my own ad-hoc connections and saved them. These connections do work and my friends are able to connect to it and the connection remained active for hours. I did it to check whether the Wifi card is working or not. It does work but only with the outgoing connections that are made by my computer. The networks that in range and are giving problem with my wifi card are working fine for my friends. So, I guess it is not the network's problem.

When I tried troubleshooting it, it gave the problem 'Problem with wireless adapter or access point'. I also tried installing all different driver versions and rollbacking to the default version for my wireless card but the same problem is there. Although in device manager, It says the device is working properly.

Please help me in solving this problem. Exact name of WiFi Card in Device Manager- Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN

Answer:Intel 5100 AGN WiFi Card problem

The same complaints and problems with this 5100AGN adaptor has been around for a long time.

There are countless threads about this on the internet. It seems that disabling the 802.11n Only setting in the routers settings and running in mixed wireless mode can help. Updating the drivers can also help, try the Intel site. > Intel? Driver Update Utility

There are plenty of long threads about this ongoing problem with some possible solutions, so your not alone.

I've grown interest in the t430, but before I get one, I want to know about 2 things. First of all, according to this thread:After more careful reading of the links, you are correct the 6300 has 3 antenna connectors. But on the config site, if one chooses the camera, can only get 2x2 actual antennas, so effectivey would get a 6300 operating like a 6200. Is this true? Secondly, if the above is true, will adding the Blue Tooth 4.0 Antenna cause any conflict with the antennas above, or with the inbuilt Camera? If it does install only 2 antennas then is it worth adding the Ultimate adapter? or should I stick to the Advanced + bluetooth? Thank you!

Answer:T430 Question about wifi ultimate (6300/6200) and Bluetooth antenna

Bluetooth module have their own antenna. The link you quoted is for the ThinkPad x series and not for the t series. On the T430, the antenna is for a 3x3 regardless of the card you choose. Even if you choose the 6205 you will still get the 3 antenna setup, only that one of the antenna will be left unused since 6205 card uses 2 antennas.

Just finished replacing the DC plug on my Y460P. Every time I tried to plug in external power the internal female receptical moved into the case making it impossible to charge. After spending $7 on a complete new plug assembly I ended up having to glue it to the inside of the case to hold it in place when the charger was inserted. Seems a common problem and fix. Anyway, I can once again recharge my battery. For reasons unknown during the disassembly/reassembly my WiFi card stopped working. I've got the standard issue Intel N-1000. Device manager shows it working properly but when I access the adapter through the network connections I find the on-screen slider in the off position. Clicking the slider moves it to on momentarily only to have it quickly return to off.  The position of the external Wifi switch makes no difference. I've tried booting the machine with the card removed. Checking device manager w/o the card shows (as expected) the card missing but no other errors. Reinstalling the card and rebooting causes the card to reappear in device manager but still showing as off in network connections. Disabling and reenabling makes no difference. I can buy a new WiFi card for less than $8 but, since the one I've got is showing as working properly, I'm skeptical that a new one would fix the problem. Anyone run across a problem like this?  Moderator comment: Model added to subject for clarity.

This one:

Because my desktop was situated at the other side of the house from the router, I bought what I thought was an official Intel card with this antenna because I knew the longer range and clearance would help. However, once the card came in it turns out while it does have the right mPCI Intel card, the mPCI to PCIe adapter and antennas are very different, and the antennas are the generic short black plastic ones
I did buy it through Amazon third party seller but I don't want to go through the hassle of returning it as the card is still genuine and the adapter has a metal heat shield which I think is good as it bumps up against my GPU, but I had really shitty speeds until I fiddled with the antennas a bit and it's still not the best.

So, is it possible to buy this antenna standalone, or is there a similar one? I don't really want to go for the goofy extra long black antennas, or the bases that look like automotive CB radio antennas. And I'd like fast shipping and for it to be under $20CAD or so inc shipping, if possible.

Thanks.

Acer closed the thread on the wifi issues, but technically this is a "different subject" so I'll post it here.After receiving my 3rd R7, I finaly got one with working wifi.

Is this BIOS lock active on my model as well like the US models have? Can I exchange my wifi card for whatever wifi card?

Answer:Will the Intel 7265 Wifi Card Work on my Yoga Pro 2 ??

I also have the Yoga 2 Pro and want to upgrade to the 7265. Been looking everywhere and it looks like the form factor and everyting are compatible, the only issue I could see is the card not being on the BIOS whitelist, which seemed to be a problem with people trying to upgrade to 7260s in the past. I called Lenovo tech support and the rep assured me that it will work as long as I have the proper drivers. I am a bit skeptical because he didn't directly confirm that I wouldn't have any issues with the 7265 being on the whitelist.  Either way, I just ordered the card from Amazon. So we will see and I will update when it comes.

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?

This one:

Because my desktop was situated at the other side of the house from the router, I bought what I thought was an official Intel card with this antenna because I knew the longer range and clearance would help. However, once the card came in it turns out while it does have the right mPCI Intel card, the mPCI to PCIe adapter and antennas are very different, and the antennas are the generic short black plastic ones
I did buy it through Amazon third party seller but I don't want to go through the hassle of returning it as the card is still genuine and the adapter has a metal heat shield which I think is good as it bumps up against my GPU, but I had really shitty speeds until I fiddled with the antennas a bit and it's still not the best.

So, is it possible to buy this antenna standalone, or is there a similar one? I don't really want to go for the goofy extra long black antennas, or the bases that look like automotive CB radio antennas. And I'd like fast shipping and for it to be under $20CAD or so inc shipping, if possible.

Thanks.

Answer:Possible to buy the square Intel antenna without buying a wifi card?

Go to Communities.intel.com and post that picture, and ask if anybody there knows where to get one. You may get luck. I found this thread there, trying to locate your device, so I know people are talking about it: I need the external antenna |Intel Communities. Alas, I couldn't find exactly what you were asking about. But it seems that if intel made it, someone will likely know more over there than they might over here. Just a thought...

Dear Friendz, I am using Lenovo Y460 laptop.I was able to switch on WiFi earlier but it is not working now.I think it happened earlier also but somehow by updating relevant drivers the issue fixed (did not remember exactly). Now since few days in my system tray ?Intel ®My WiFi Technology? icon is there and when I click/right click on it all the options are grayed out due to which I could not enable WiFi. But one option ?Open Intel® My WiFi Utility? is allowed to select and when I opened, the profiles option is again grayed out and it is displaying message that ?Network Adapter Not Found?.Then I went to Control Panel---->Devices--->Device Manager--->Network Adapter--->Intel(R) WiFi Link 1000 BGN---->and updated the drivers here.  Restarted the machine but issue did not fix. Then deleted that Intel(R) WiFi Link 1000 BGN from Network Adapters and deleted drivers (C---->Program Files--->Intel---->WiFi---->Drivers)?downloaded from internet and uploaded drivers again (C---->Program Files--->Intel---->WiFi---->Drivers) then restarted the machine again no use. I also updated S32 and S64 in Win7 as I could see one folder name called drivers in C drive.( C---->Drivers--->Intel Wireless WiFi Link Driver--->Win7--->S32, S34 Folders) I am now totally confused?..Lenovo support does not want to help and they are telling to sign up for extending warranty otherwise asking to take this machine to...

Answer:Could not enable Intel My WiFi on my laptop

hi K. Sharath,
 
From this microsoft article, it looks like the Intel My WiFi technology is not compatible with the Intel(R) WiFi Link 1000 BGN card and is only applicable to certain types of Intel Wi-FI adapters.
 
To turn ON the Wi-Fi capability of the Lenovo Y460, you will need to:
1. Slide the physical wi-fi switch to the ON position
  - Link to picture
 
2. Press Fn+F5 to enable the wireless card (ensure Current Status is set to "ON")
  - Link to picture
 
Note:
The Lenovo Energy Management Driver must be installed for the function keys to work
 
3. If same problem, boot into the BIOS by pressing F2 on startup and ensure that the WLAN Device is Enabled.
  - Link to picture
 
 
Let me know how it goes.
 
Regards

Additional setup info:Dual HDDs (Win7 Pro & XP Pro)
XP Pro ? LAN & WiFi work fine (orig. configuration from Dell)
Win7 ? neither LAN nor WiFi work (Win7 added after purchase)
I was working on setting up an outdoor WiFi antenna a couple of days ago when my problems started. I was working in Win7, which I had not been using that often. My LAN connection was not working, and I realized the driver had not been installed. I downloaded it from Dell?s website and installed it. I received an error message about SNMP service not being installed. I turned the service from disabled to auto. I do not know if my LAN adapter is now working. That is my first problem. My second problem happened when even though my WiFi card had been working fine, I decided to see if its driver had been updated. It was not. I believe a Microsoft driver was installed. It was working just fine though (smile), so I had to mess with it. I downloaded the driver from Del??s website and installed it. That is when my problems started. The WiFi card has not worked since. First I realized I installed the wrong driver. I uninstalled it and installed the correct one. I even restored the system to before I messed with any drivers. No luck. My WiFi card still does not work. The iNtel utility states it fails the hardware test and passes the driver test. Windows 7 states it cannot find any wireless networks (if I switch to XP Pro everything works). I am at a loss and very frustrated. Can anyone help me please?

Hi Guys,

I'm currently trying to work out a problem regarding my WiFi card on my L670-14M.

The old Wifi card died on us, so I decided to buy a Intel 7620 card to replace it. This installed fine, and is recognized by the device manager, and I can now find the wifi card in the adapter settings menu.

Unfortunately, I'm unable to go any further. The wireless logo in the corner appears, but with a red "X" through it.

I've tried:
Disabling and enabling the cardUsing the FN+F8 key combinationUpdating the BIOSRunning the troubleshooter (It tells me to switch on the WiFi capabilities via a switch on the computer or the FN keys. I have no switch and the FN key combination doesn't work.I've also attempted to clear the TCP/IP stack to no avail.

All I can guess now is that the card is either incompatible with this laptop, or maybe there's something in the registry that could be changed/removed to help? I've tried several different cards too (as this is a work laptop and we've bought the cards in bulk) and it's not due to a faulty card.

Thanks,

YoYoMachete

Hello. We are receiving T400 laptops.  These laptops do not hold a wireless connection for any length of time.  They also have a hard time connecting at boot up.  Item that have been tried...01) Removed and re-installed Drivers.02) Removed and reinstalled Access Connections. (Leap Authorization is used)03) Removed and replaced the Wireless Card. FRU 43Y6943. We are using Windows Xp with SP 2.  The laptop runs fine and we have no complaints with the exception of the wireless.  I might mention that we had the same issue with T61 Models.  To resolve this issue, we removed the B/G/N card and installed B/G cards.  We do not utilize "N" Band, so we do not need this capability.  I was looking for a way to do the same to the T400 Laptops, but I am unable to find a compatible B/G card to use.  The BIOS generates the 1082 error if we attempt to use a card that is not approved for the model.  Any assistance would be appreciated... Thanks.

welcome to the community.
 
what you're experiencing is that the card is not on the BIOS "whitelist". the only way to have the card work in your machine is with an unofficially modified BIOS. this is not generally recommended and would likely void your machine's warranty. i'm sure this is not what you wanted to learn... sorry.

Answer:Half size Intel N 5300 WiFi card for X200s

if it is from Lenovo then yes, otherwise no. Lenovo never sold any Thinkpads with a half size Intel 5300 card AFAIK, so if you are getting a generic one then the answer is no, it won't work in your machine. the slot on the X200s won't support mSATA drives.
