Problem with Intel WiFi 5100 AGN

Question: Problem with Intel WiFi 5100 AGN

Hello! I have a R500 Series ThinkPad with the Intel 5100 AGN WiFi adapter. The driver for the card has been updated as of today (September 7, 2010). I have a D-Link DIR 655 WiFi router (replacing an old Linksys 54g WiFi router). The firmware of the router has also been updated today. I'm running the router under the WPA-2 standard with AES cipher type, channel width of 40 Mhz on 802.11n mode only with auto channel scan (just as Intel is recommanding). I also followed Intel indications for the WiFi card. Problem is : the laptop just can't connect to the WiFi network...? I tried all sort of things, but to no avail. Can anyone help? Note that when I tried to use the router under WPA with TKIP and AES as cipher type, the laptop was able to connect at the slow 54 Mbps rate. Thanks.

Recently, my Intel Wifi 5100 has stopped working on windows. For no appearant reason, Windows decided that my Wifi card is not good enough to be read. When i open my Device Manager, my Ethernet port shows up, but the Wifi card does not. The wierd part is that the Wifi card gets read in "Splashtop" which came on my laptop. I can use Wifi on the Linux bases OS, but not windows. I've tried installing all drivers, but Windows refuses to acknowledge the presence of my card. Any clue on how to fix this?

Answer:Serious Intel Wifi 5100 problem

Hey, welcome to Vista Forums!
Assuming the wireless card is removable, you could try re-seating the wireless card, also, you could take the card out, and boot, then shut down, and put the card back in, then boot and see if it made any difference.

If it's not removable, check to make sure any wireless switches are turned on.

Please post back with what you have tried, or even if you managed to fix the problem and how!
Hope this helps,
Daniel

Answer:Lenovo R500 wifi upgrade from Intel WiFi Link 5100 to Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260

Welcome to the forum!
 
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.

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?

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 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.

i slapped on vista ultimate 32, the intel 5100 will be in device manager without any problems.  the only for me to get the blue led to light up again is to do a uninstall in device manager and reboot.  vista will then detect new hardware and reintall the wifi all over again.  this does work but to do it every week suck.  i dont want to buy a new internal or external card either.  this happen to anyone else?

Answer:Y430 intel 5100, blue wifi led doesn't come on. Not fn + f5 problem either.

To clarify, the wireless works, but the blue LED doesn't and the fix you described only temporarily fixes it?  Have you installed all the other drivers as well; the ones located on the d:/ drive?

Hello everyone,

It is my first thread on this forum and I want to thank you because you indirectly help me so many times.

I just installed new bios 1.25 on my notebook because of usb issues. Everything works fine but suddenly my wifi device stops working on windows 7.
It is well installed, the connection under Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections is enabled, but It doesn't see any WiFi spot.

It is not a device hardware problem because it works under ubuntu.

I tried all the usual ways: reinstall drivers etc but nothing happens.

I don't want to reinstall my OS because I'll have too many settings to restore after.

Is there anyone experiencing the same problem? Anyone who fixed it?

Then I wonder if Lenovo 3000 N500 4233 series supports N network with the following network card Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN.When I linked up with Rauter with N, so I got a speed of about 65 Mbps, but far away from thespeed of 100-130 Mbit/s +.I have spoken to Lenovo and received a reply to update drivers on all that goes too uppdate and see if it works.If I do not find them at Lenovo, I would go to Intel and Microsoft homepage to see if there were any new drivers.Slowly and soil, I made it and found newer drivers for the network card but to no avail.I spoke with Lenovo again and got the answer that it could not do more because the card was 65 Mbps,which is certain to N working. In other words, nothing is broken can not be repaired, even if it onlyperforms 1/4 of what it should be!I was still unhappy, I could go back to the medamarkt and return the machine.I wonder how somone can say something like that when intel WiFi Link 5100 AGNshall work up to 300 Mbps while It can't get more then 65 Mbits/s.For if I have 65 then I am on N linkage because the G only goes up to 54 Mbit/s.The most strange is that not only was the serier of Lenovo 3000 N500, having problems with Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGNnot performing as it should.The answer I got was to either leave or wait until someone will solve the problem (Lenovo,Intel or Microsoft).Plus I have age machinery that works good in 130 Mbits/s without problems while a new can not?Strange thinking about this.So what do you do?Someone who knows ...

Hi Guys,
This is Viral. I am using an Acer laptop model ASPIRE 4736 since the last five years. There haven't been much issues with it. except for the battery and thats it. But recently, since last two weeks I noticed that my Wifi would stop blinking after sometime after I start my laptop and then it wouldn't work even when I try to turn on and turn off the Wifi switch(it doesn't respond anything). I tried searching the net for this issue using my office laptop and found that a system restore would help to solve this issue. Since I remembered that I updated Java as well as there was this ad software which got installed and I had unistalled it. So I did a system restore and then when I opened the device manager, I am not able to see intel r wifi link 5100 driver on it. I tried restarting my laptop and did everything and couldn't find the driver(it was there before the system restore). But later on the same day, the driver got installed automatically and the WiFi started working but only for a couple of minutes after the restart and then it stopped. So  I did the system restore again to the date when everything was working perfectly and when i did that, again my intel r wifi link 5100 driver is not shown on the device manager(network adapters). I don't if it would automatically get installed or not but its sure that the WiFi issue still be there. So can you please help with this issue?

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.

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

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

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

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

try this either set a hard coded dns

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

so say some thing like
this is very very common here

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

and find a dsn server



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


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

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

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

Answer:W500 and Intel Wifi Link 5100

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

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

Drc123, the Intel 5100 card does support 802.11n at both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, but isn't a very strong performer. For more info, see the following FAQ:I've seen websites that mention other Intel WiFi cards -- what about those cards?What is 802.11n WiFi, and why is it any better than the older 802.11b or g WiFi?I have an HP or Lenovo netbook -- can I swap a better WiFi card into it?BUYING AN 802.11N WIRELESS ROUTER - KNOW THE FOLLOWING OR SUFFERIf you're NOT able to use the Intel 5100 card to connect to an 802.11n router that's sitting next to you, then you probably have a driver issue. Good luck!

Hello,         Im interested to use of WWAN in my laptop, My is Thinkpad T400, having with Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN.  please guide me with process accesing the simcard slot in laptop. Waiting for your reply. With Regards  Santhosh

Answer:Regarding using wwan in T400 with Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN

Hi,
 
I believe the SIM card slot is in the battery bay.  Remove the battery to access.
 
That Intel 5100 is a wifi card, not a wwan card.  Do you also have a wwan card installed, or is that what you are asking about?
 
Information on both (SIM and wwan card installation) is in the hardware maintenance manual: Hardware Maintenance Manual - T400 & R400

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

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

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

Much help needed!

Answer:Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN Causing Crashes

I'm having the exact same issues. It's driving me nuts! Have you had any luck in resolving this? I've just tried the latest drivers from Intel and it hasn't fixed it.

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

Am looking for a hardware solution: Pavilion DV7 1270 usUPGRADED TO WIN 10  64bit from WIN 7 64bit My current WIFI Wireless/Bluetooth card is an INTEL WIFI LINK 5100 agn. ( Original card) This is NOT SUPPORTED in Win 10... WIFI  no longer works. There are no solutions offered in HP Web assistance or via INTEL or MICROSOFT. I would simply like to find a compatible(upgrade) card that works in this system  with WIN 10? The card is accessible and replaceable ( in RAM Bay... as i remember) INTEL no longer supports this card (to and through win 10) HP Laptops are notoriously finicky with WIFI card replacements...? Short of adopting a usb dongal WIFI/BLUETOOTH option, I would like to effect an internal upgrade to the original card... seems simple enough? Thank You for whatever guidance you might afford    

Answer:after win 10 upgrade, intel wifi link 5100 no longer support...

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

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.

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.

 Dear all,  About 2 years ago i upgraded my win 7 to win 10 version and wirelss stopped working. this problem is well known. Many attempts with netsh id config, reset IP, reinstall drivers, trough a USB whatever, nothing worked. I must conclude that the intel WIFI 5100 driver is incompatible with windows 10. I cannot anymore revert my win 10 upgrade sadly.  My question is whether i can install an older version or another driver type that is compatible on windows 10 ??? if so i would gladly have the driver link or zip file posted  Thanks PS, also my touchpad scrolling feature stopped working, i dont know if this could be related, just in case it could help figuring out where the problem is but i guess its just incompatibility.

This has been happening for the past three days. I just recently bought a laptop, the Toshiba Satellite A305-S6898, with Intel? WiFi Link 5100.

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

Acer Aspire 5930g laptop with Intel 5100 WiFi adapter. Been testing Win 10 Tech Preview, switched off WiFi via built-in system switch and since than it completely disappeared from the laptop. Which means when I press WiFi button on the laptop there's no light, the adapter itself is missing from the system ? even in hidden devices. But all the other buttons (Bluetooth, browser) work well. I've tried switching back to Win7, running WinXP from LiveCD, various Linux distribs ? no result. Tried other adapters (all of them Intel), it didn't help. Actually the system found Intel WiFi/WiMAX, but only WiMAX drivers were installed. Tried flashing BIOS, also didn't help. Been advised to install native ACPI utility with hardware buttons drivers. While trying to find it I stumbled upon a software called Acer Drivers Update Utility. It's a third-party software which scans devices and proposes to download driver updates for them. For some money.Yet while scanning it found the card (at least, listed it among devices). When I was scanning the laptop was connected via LAN, and after scanning Windows notificated about installing some bridge and PCI drivers. The button was working, and so was the WiFi card. The next day, when I opened my laptop (as far as I remember, I didn't switch it off then), WiFi disappeared again. I've tried reinstalling the system and repeat the "magic" with Update Utilty, but failed. Of course, I've tried force-installing the driver... Read more

We have fairly new HP DV7T laptops, with the internal Intel Wifi Link 5100 AGN card..

We have been through 3 access points at this point, i just now confirmed that i dont think our issue is access point related, at least not the type etc...

Frequently these laptops will suddenly not find ANY networks (wireless ones) to connect to..

Other laptops (dell, asus, iphones) still work fine during these periods.

I've tried playing with configuration settings on the nic itself with no luck.

Currently we have a Dlink Dap-2553 access point.. set to the 2.4ghz mode (since we still have devices that need 2.4ghz)..

I'm not sure what to do to prevent this from happening, short of using express cards, which we dont want to do..

Anyone else ran into this?

But last days i notice a problem with wifi connection. Well, the card constantly switches off automatically. I use Intel Wifi ProSET tool and Windows 7 system tools.
Windows 7 indicator shown no avilable connections and ProSET indicator shown wifi disabled and ask for turn on wifi with hardware switcher, when hardware switcher (mechanical slider with LED on front) is in the 'on' position and LED flashes.

When this happens, the wifi card is still detected in the Windows device manager. I reinstalled all drivers, but this didn't fix the problem.
The card can be switched on and off several times per minute, but most often when the card is turned off it is hard to activate it again.

Fn + F8 works well, if WiFi Link works properly himself.

Is there still someone who remembers this model and met with such behavior?

Question: Intel 5100 AGN

I have an ASUS U81A laptop (Win 7 Home) with the Intel 5100 AGN wireless chip in it. Two days ago the wireless refused to turn on. The hotkeys to turn it on display the usual "tower" icon for the wireless but wont turn it on. In the last day I have completely reset my computer with the F9 reset and I have also reinstalled all the drivers for the chip as well as the ASUS wireless console 3 utility and the ATK driver for the hotkeys. As recommended in another post by another member I installed the Xirrus WiFi Inspector. When trying to hit the enable button it says it enables it but the card is still not on and won't detect networks. Also the device manager recognizes that the card is there. I'm at a loss of what to do next. I heard that some people have had luck covering pin 20 on the card with clear tape (supposedly that is the pin that controls the on/off capability forcing the card always on). Has anyone had luck with this?

My connection speed problems are far far worse. I have an old Buffalo bg AP, and it's very strange. I get good responsiveness on accessing web pages, but speeds of 2.5kbps on downloading files. Any clues? I tried disabling n, I tried a whole bunch of different settings on the WLAN device, but I can not get anywhere close to reasonable download speeds. Is it a conflict between Access Connections, and Windows Network Control? It kind of feels that way, but I'm not done investigating yet.

Probably completely unrelated but maybe not... I just put a test install of Win 7 Pro 64 on my T400 w/Intel 5100.  It was running Vista Biz 64 and working fine with my Linksys N router.  With '7 it wouldn't see the router most of the time, would occasionally see it and associate sometimes, and always drop in a few seconds. The "fix" was to enable QoS in the router.  Absolutely no idea why. Z.

Question: intel 5100 on t500

So it seems the adapter is acting up.  It sees networking n linux it refuses to obtain an ip adress.  Windows 7 sees the network will connect sometimes but has a slooooooow connection and sometimes won't load the page.  Other times it won't connect.  I use another computer on same network and the internal adapter works fine.  It seem's other people are reporting the same problem. Has anybody heard of this problem or have a possible fix?

Answer:replacement cards intel 5100

Hi beyond_grimm,I think the wireless cards mentioned on page 152-153 in the following manual are the only ones supported:- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-73322 Also, bear in mind only lenovo approved cards get passed by the BIOS, i.e. I think they have to be bought directly from lenovo or resellers who claim they would work cent percent in your thinkpad, there are many on ebay who sell lenovo approved compatible cards.Hope it helps.

I've been reading other similar posts for weeks and I still haven't found a permanent solution. I updated my Intel 5100 drivers to the latest (13.0.0.107) and have tried ALL previous ones. I still am having BIG issues with my connection to the linksys router. Yes I have it set to maximum performance, yes I've tried disabling IPV6, and I still have gotten nowhere. It connects normally through wire and other laptops connect flawlessly on wifi.

Also, I'm having problems with power management. First, when I put my laptop to sleep or hibernate, it never prompted me for the login password even though the option was on. Then I tried disabling and re-enabling it which I believe solved the problem. And when I change one of the plan options, like changing the "turn screen off" time and "dim screen" time and "put to sleep" time, the changes never apply (maybe they do after a reboot). When I close t he screen lid, sometimes it goes to sleep, other times it hibernates, and sometimes it just freezes. It's been one hell of an experience with Win 7 and this is already the RTM, so can anyone PLEASE tell me what's going on?

Thank you for you help, and sorry for the long post

Answer:Intel 5100 Limited Connection. When will this end?

Anyone? I also just tried turning off the "Allow pc to turn off wireless card to save power" option in power management but this hasn't solved the problem. The problem is really taking place half if not most of the times i try to connect.

I have a u350 w/ windows 7 and I'm getting poor wifi speed, packet loss, and disconnections. I have a good Cisco AP (802.11g) that works well with my two other laptops.  Typically sitting side by side, the other laptops will be at 54 or 48 mbps and will download a 700mb file about twice as fast from a local file server.  I've had the ap and other laptops for months and never got disconected in my own house before, but I have lost signal multiple times with the u350. I also bought a crappy linksys wrt610n to go with the new u350, none of my other devices support N so I set this thing up exclusively for the u350.  I typically get speeds anywhere from 2-5mbps on the N AP but sometimes as high as 24mbps.  I've played with various settings on the AP such as 5ghz only, 2.4ghz, or both at the same time, but it's pretty crappy and slower than G every time. Because I have the two APs, and the other laptops, I'm pretty sure it's just the u350 that's screwed up.  Forgetting the 802.11n, I would be happy if I could use the u350 with my Cisco G without getting disconnected and dropping packets left and right. Is it possible I have a bad wi-fi card or could it be just a software problem?  I've tried both the lenovo driver and the newer intel/microsoft one and they both have this issue.

So let's start at the beginning.  Whenever I recieved my T400 a couple of days ago, I immediatly could not get the network card to work correctly.  By that, I mean I could not connect to the internet through my wireless network.  After some snooping around on this site and the internet, I discovered that the ThinkVantage software could be to blame. I unistalled the ThinkVantage software, and updated to Intel's latest driver.  This helped;  I can atleast get on the internet now.  However, it is very shoddy.  Whenever I am connected, I am fine.  Getting connected is sometimes the problem.  Generally, whenever the system boots, I only have a "Local" network connection.  After a series of Window's diagnostic  runs, I can usually get it to connect to the internet.  A couple of times, just letting the computer sit for a while will get it to connect.   To add to the problem, most of time after the computer awakes from sleep mode, the internet connection is gone.   I love the laptop except for the wireless problem.  Please help. Thanks. 

Answer:Internet connectivity Problems with Intel 5100

Also, the internet connection cuts out while I am browsing.  What is strange is, the little globe on the network connection will go away.  Whenever I run a diagnostic, it pings out just fine and the little globe pops back up.  However, whenever I try and go to a webpage, nothing happens, I get an error saying the server is down, and the little globe goes away.  I may run this cycle 3 or 4 times before the internet acutally comes back on.

Hi all, I'm having issues with the wifi in my SL400. Some days, the Fn+F5 program won't see it at all, and I'll have to turn it on via Mobility Center, or it will see it. If and when I do turn it on to connect to a network, I can't access the internet. I've tried various possible connections, and it doesn't seem to work, whether it be through Access Connections or Network and Sharing Centre. Is there any solution to this, or do I have a dodgy wifi card? Cheers, Douglas

------------------

The laptop is only a month or two old and so far its acted up like this once before. I was able to fix it then but can't for the life of me remember how, pretty sure I just disabled/enabled the wireless in device manager and it started working again.

I was playing around on the internet earlier and for the most part it was fine. At times it would hang while loading a page, I assume because it temporarily lost connectivity, then would load the page as usual once it caught back up.

But then while playing Battlefield: Heroes the game started giving me "Problem With Your Connection" errors like mad. At first I chalked it up to the game but then realized it had been playing fine for the past two weeks until today (and as far as I can tell, there were no major updates over night).

So I turn the wifi on/off using A) the front switch B) the FN shortcut and C) going into device manager and disabling the hardware. None of these have done anything.

When I try to run Intel's included Manual Diagnostics tool it gets to 'Radio Test' and gives me the message "Software Radio is OFF." After a search on google I ended up at Intel's site and they suggest using either A) the task bar icon to turn the radio back on (do not have nor have ever seen th... Read more

Answer:Intel Proset Wireless 5100 Problems

You want the latest Intel driver from Toshiba's web site. Sometimes the motherboard or system manufacturer has to modify Intel's "raw" driver or software for system compatibility.

Do you have a LED (I think red on a Toshiba) that indicates whether the wireless is on or off? If so, is it changing when you toggle the switch?

Hello all,
I am having an issue with my wireless internet connection. It has worked well for 5 years, but a few days ago I suddenly lost connectivity. Checked the wireless switch on my Dell 1737 laptop, good. Replaced my Intel 5100 wireless card with a new one. It is not recognized by Device Manager, but the driver shows up under Control Panel, Programs. Tried just about everything. Do you think I am looking at an out of box hardware failure? I have checked and rechecked the seating and coaxial connectors to the new board. This one has me stumped. Any suggestions? Kind regards.

There have been a number of threads on here about those of us who have had serious problems keeping wireless connections up. People have had this with both W500s and W700s, so I decided to comment in one thread for both. In my own case my brand new factory fresh W500 (XP Pro) was dropping every 5 minutes requring a reset. I called Lenovo Support and they walked me through mutiple driver updates/reinstalls until we reached the point where the wireless quit working and in typical help desk fashion they threw up their hands and said "OS Wipe". So, back to factory fresh I went, and I started researching on my own. Several people on here had some luck turning off bits of the wireless functionality (such as disabling "N", Power Management, Packet Burst and other advanced features). That did help slightly, and the disconnects went from once every 5 minutes to once every 15 minutes or so, but still enough to make it unusable as a Work Machine which is supposed to be putting bread on the table not locking up in the middle of the most crucial operation. I really didn't want to go back to Lenovo Tech Support and start again going through the scripts for network repair because it's clear there's something fundamental going on here, and not something that can be solved by a help desk flow chart, and we all know that the help desk will read from the script until your ears bleed. I started casting my net wider, (Try google and Intel 5100 and 5300...

Answer:INTEL 5100/5300 Network Dropouts/Disconnects

Installing the latest Intel drivers as well as downloading new power management drivers on the IBM website http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-4GXPEG&velxr-la... eliminated virtually all of the "local only" connect and random drop out issues.  Power settings on the card were also changed to performance - highest, and roaming agressivness - lowest.  The only remaining issues as far as wireless goes are that 1) occasionally coming out of sleep mode the wireless card does not wake up.  Access Manager says it is on but there is no indicator light and it is not connecting to anything.  The second problem would appear to relate to the first as by turning the card off and on in Access Manager powers up the modem, it only connects locally and appears to not look for the WEP key in order to connect globally.  You need to disconnect, look for, and attach to your preferred network in order to see the world.  As an FYI, my W500 uses the Intel 5350 wireless card.  So, this is almost the way it is supposed to work but would like to hear any solution to problem #2.

Hi,  I just bought a T400 last month and installed Ubuntu Linux 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) last week. The kernel version is 2.6.27 (right now it is 2.6.27-11.27). Most parts works wonderfully for me, yet I keep getting problems with the wireless card. Last week and this week I got the computer crashing on me when I was doing wireless-related stuff (mainly to bring up the wireless interface). First problem (Feb 5, 2009)  I was waking the computer up from sleep (suspend) and trying to disable/enable wireless, etc.Don't remember what I did; perhaps Fn+F5 and other keys as well.

Wireless light is usually always on all the time unless we press the Fn+F5 key.* connection to my wireless ESSID network is not working.* But in Vista the wireless connection is fine!* reboot with Linux doesn't help.I thought I was doomed for the wireless in linux.

Router: Verizon Wireless (Model Name: MI424-WR)

Wireless network connections are detected, and the connection is "strong". However, when I try to connect, it always fails. When I go to the command prompt, and type "ipconfig" I see "Media Disconnected". I know there is a wireless button on the Acer's, but this is automatically turned on during startup, so I know this is not the problem. For some reason, my router is just not connecting to my network adapter, and I am unsure how to resolve this problem. Thanks for any insight of this issue!

My X200 stop connecting with my wifi network.  The troubleshooting in the hardward tool, it says  "the wireless adaptor is disabled or uninstalled".  I have checked and bluetooth is working fine. 

Answer:wifi link 5100 in X200 shows disconnected

Hi and welcome to the forum!

Try the following:-

-Make sure that the hardware switch on the left is turned on (although I guess it already is since your Bluetooth is working).
-Press Fn-F5 -> Radio on the wifi.
-Go in the BIOS -> Config -> Network -> make sure internal wireless is turned on.
-Reinstall the wifi driver:- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-70476
-If you use Access Connections, then uninstall it.

Keep us updated.

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...

This seems to be a recurring theme as I've found several entries on this subject but no real solutions. I have an Actiontec MI424WR router. I have had at least 6 different wireless devices connected to this router that include MS and Linksys game routers, Xbox, 2 Lenovo t42 thinkpads and a t60p think pad. All work flawlessly so I don't think this is a router issue. Windows Vista Home As soon as the connection drops, I go to access connections and bring it up and it reconnects. I've downloaded the latest drivers, ran thru all the lenovo updates. Help!

Answer:Brand new Thinkpad T500 w/ Intel 5100 Wireless card - Intermittent network drops

Is your wireless card have network drops when you use it in other places?? Also, if you use it in only one place,  try it without access connection -- Using Windows Tools.

Hello folks. I have an X61T (7764-CTO) in which the wireless card seems to be failing intermittently. I'd like to replace it with a more modern one, preferably of the 5100, 5300, or 5350 variety. Are there any card w/ these chipsets that are known to work in the X61T? The only card that the Support page lists for this machine is the "ThinkPad abg wireless LAN Mini PCI Express Adapter", FRU 41A4071.  Thanks,Andrew

[quote]The only card that the Support page lists for this machine is the "ThinkPad abg wireless LAN Mini PCI Express Adapter", FRU 41A4071.[/quote] I was able to run with an Lenovo branded Intel 4965.  I don't have the fru handy...I would think if it were supported, and if lenovo still sales the device it would be on the accessories & updates page after you insert your model number on the left: http://shop.lenovo.com/us/accessories But since the X61 is replaced by the X200, I don't see a lot of options under wireless & networking anymore. I would also like to know if anyone has had any luck with these lenovo branded wifi/wimax cards in their X61?

Google translator translates it to "given"
 
Does it make sense in the context?

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. 
 
Cheers,

Hi, new to the forum and having a problem. My WIFI-N is really slow, the edge 13 will connnect 48-72Mbps only.I know it only has the 2,4GHz channel and no 5GHz at all. this should not prevent me having at least 150Mbps connection. My router is full 300Mbps device. My settings:Edge: 802.11n bandwith for 2,4GHz =auto, Ad Hoc QoS = WMM enabled, transmitting power = 5. maxRouter: WPA2 (pre shared key) AES, Area = Europe, Channel ID = auto, Transmitting power = 100, Bandwith = 20/40MHz Similar case is described here, but it not solved yet. Thanks AltGr

From the moment i bought the noteook, it had poor wifi range at long distance, and if i was using my GPU, my wifi card would go offline. Its a problem with all y50-70 FHD notebooks and even MSI ones. Playing online games was impossible with the in build Intel AC 7260. All the tme I  was using my nexus 5 connected to my router and using usb thetering to the notebook for gaming(you can use your phone if still this doesnt solve your problem).  1.How to know if you have the problem? --Download GPU-Z, connect to your router at a long distance, 30-40 feet. Go to speedtest.net and prepare to start a test. Once you iniciate the in build PCI render test in GPU-Z you will notice your connection  is getting slower and slower utterly slower or doesnt even connect to the router. This is a common problem(some interferance with gpu memory clock and wifi card). 2. You dont have the problem, then please type if you are using the UHD or touch variant of the notebook.  3. You have the problem. How to fix it? !1-----Firstly you will need to do a mod using regedit and adding a value, ScanWhenAssotiated, search in google!!2-----I'm using Wfi driver 17.13.11.5 and BT driver 17.1.1501.512 if you update to theese drivers look again at regedit, they can return the value to default.!3-----Download an app called Lenovo Settings DownloadSpoiler (Highlight to read)https://www.dropbox.com/s/j1803bu5hwp3saw/Lenovo%20Settings.zip?dl=0https...
