I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Replacing my Intel 5100 AGN card with a Intel 2200 (X200 Thinkpad)

Not possible. The Intel 5100 is mini PCI-e while the 2200 is just plain mini PCI. Completely different slot.

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!

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

Answer:X200 and Intel Wifi Link 5100

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

I have Thinkpad Edge E431 which has two PCI Express card slot of different form factor. The first one being PCI Express Mini Card slot occupied by Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 and the second slot is PCI Express M.2 Card slot for SSDs/WWAN card. I have been searching WWAN Card with PCI Express M.2 form factor but unable to find one in my locality. However, there are vendors in my locality selling WWAN card which is compatible with PCI Express Mini Card slot.My question being, is it possible to remove the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 and replace it with WWAN card. I have USB wireless LAN card so I don't bother removing the internal wireless card. The laptops comes with WWAN antenna. It also has SIM Card slot underneath the battery.I have modded the BIOS so there shouldn't be any problem of laptop rejecting the card. Thanks in advance and any help would be really appriciated.  RegardsKemun

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.

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.

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. Bob...

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

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

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

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

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

The Vostro when I bring it in, after using at home,connects automatically.

First time internet connection worked for 2 days, 2nd time for an hour, then couldn't log on to any link.

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

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

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

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..

Hi all, I have a Thinkpad T40 2373 94U originally equipped with XP Pro and wireless Intel Pro 2100 (Wireless B 11mpbs) FRU 91P7267. I searched online and looks like it is upgradable to wireless G 54mbps so I bought off ebay an Intel Pro 2200BG Part Number 39T0077 (used).

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?

I have tried programs like TCPOptimizer and DrTCP to no avail.
Is there anything else I can change to improve internet and download speeds? The router has the latest firmware and I also have the latest drivers for the Intel Pro 2200 b/g in the laptop.

I should also add that it came with XP SP2, not that it should make a difference.

I'm attempting to create a home wireless network. Hardware: Dell Dimension 8100, 3COM 10/100 network card, Qwest DSL web connection through an internal Intel Pro 2200 modem, Microsoft ME, etc.

My problem is that the Intel Pro 2200 does not have an RJ45 connector on the card, only an RJ11. All access point-type devices that I've seen require an ethernet connection. Can I use my network card to "redirect" my Internet connection from the Intel modem to the 3COM network card (which contains an ethernet port), and connect to an access point device???

Qwest tells me to buy the Actionec 1520 as the workaround...

Thanks,
RedRiver...
 

Answer:Intel Pro 2200 DSL Modem and Wireless Network

I don't know how well it would work to try to redirect the output of the card, if it were me, I'd bite the bullet and buy the external modem with the Ethernet connection.

Since Quest offers both, why won't they swap you for the correct device?

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

Is there a way to install an Intel 4965agn miniPCI in a Thinkpad T61?  Have updated BIOS, etc., but no combination works.  Get 1802 error re: unathorized card and Google work-around's don't seem to work on T61 series (on my laptop anyway). RegardsHSA

Answer:1802 error on Thinkpad T61 trying to add Intel 4965agn card

Welcome to the forum! My guess is that you're trying to install a generic Intel card, and this will not work in a ThinkPad, since the BIOS detects it and blocks the boot with the message you've encountered. Only IBM/Lenovo approved cards (with a FRU number on them) will work without triggering the error message. And from what I recall (might be wrong) there is no BIOS hack for newer ThinkPads, T61 included. Hope this helps.

Back in August of 2013 I ordered a Y510p with the SLI 750M configuration (see signature for detailed specs). It originally came with Windows 8 as well. It came with the famously terrible Centrino N 2230. From day one it was shotty and on the 2nd day of ownership completely stopped working until I installed 2 drivers and the annoying Intel PRO-Set Wireless utility from their site (no patch available directly from Lenovo). Now that its been a year and I've upgraded to Windows 8.1 its being problematic once again as usual. My issues:Connection randomly dropping, but usually picks back up in a few seconds.

I just posted a response on the other Lenovo y510p Intel 7260AC forum.  In a nutshell, I bought a Lenovo part: fru 04W3814, which is a Lenovo Intel 7260AC + Bluetooth 4.0.  Lenovo initally said they would support it, and have a hardware support case number.  They told me that they would support it.  I had not heard back.  I called and was given the "we don't support upgrades" answer, although it was their own part, and they acknowledged problems with the Intel 2230 card.
 
What I learned, is that I was not talking to Lenovo, but a third party company who would not let me contact Lenovo directly.

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?

Hi, I recently installed Windows 7 and I have been experiencing slow internet speed ever since.  I have already updated the drivers for both network adapters (Intel Wifi Link 5100 AGN ver 12.4 1.4 and the Intenl 82567LF Gigabet Network Connection ver 10.0.2.2).  I used to be able to recieve 6mb/s for downloads, but now it has been reduced to less than 1 mb/s. Here is my speed test:  http://www.speedtest.net/result/616886714.png  Are there other drivers or software that I need to update to get my speed back? Thanks

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.

Latest firmware, drivers.

I was getting ping of up to 15ms on my laptop, while my desktop network card got less than 1 ms or = one ms.

Also, this was right next to the router. Full power on everything.

I upgraded the firmware and drivers, and now I have = 1 ms. My question is, how do I get that less than 1 ms ping like I do with my desktop card, and from a broader range. Ironically the signal strength is stronger on my laptop than the desktop with better ping, and the network speed is at max, 54g instead of 36 or so.

Is there an official list as to what Wireless Cards will work with the Lenovo Twist.  I know when they were sold you had two options of cards, and had to decide if you wanted the Intel which supported Miricast or the Broadcom version which supported 5Ghz. Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 & Bluetooth 4.0 (2x2 BGN & BT 4)Thinkpad a/b/g/n Wireless & Bluetooth 4.0 (2x2 ABGN & BT 4.0) Now there are Intel Cards out that support all of the above such as the Advanced-N 6235, but I can find no information if this or any other Intel cards will work with the Thinkpad Twist.  Any info would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Hi ! I want to overclock Intel HD Graphics 3000 card in my ThinkPad T520 to play Far Cry 3 with better FPS :-) I did the following :- installed newest Intel graphics card drivers from intel website- installed newest Intel Extreme Tuning Utility and I have the "Manual Tuning" tab options all greyed out !  Then I installed ThinkPad BIOS Update Utility and updated my BIOS, restarted laptop and I still have these options disabled ! Why? ;-( How do I enabled them ? BTW I checked in BIOS , this is my current version : 2013-07-26 , 82ET64WW (1.44)Is this the newest one ? Thanks

Answer:Overclocking Intel HD Graphics 3000 card in ThinkPad T520

1.44 looks like the latest BIOS for the T520. Unfortunately you can't overclock any recent mobile Intel GPUs, at least not explicitly. Grab ThrottleStop, click TPL, check Intel Power Balance, and set CPU to 0 and GPU to 31. This is the best you can do.There's a driver modding group by the name of PHDGD that has a HD 3000 driver modded for performance:http://intellimodder.webs.com/intel-hd-series-1g-2gNo idea what they did, nor any benchmarks between drivers. Of course, use at your own risk.You can also tune Far Cry 3 using the config files to expose options that aren't available through the game itself.http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Far_Cry_3#Disable_depth_of_field
 
Also make sure you have two sticks of RAM; having dual channel can bump the integrated GPU's performance.

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?

EDIT: Specs

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,

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.

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 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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

I have same problem and done everything tech support could tell me and they sent someone and changed the card but still have same problem. After many calls to tech and sale I had to order and pay for a new machine and they are suppose to take this back. Although I paid for new machine I have not received return authorization yet.

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

any ideas ?

I have a W500 (i.e. product type 4058), with an Intel 5100 Wifi Link 5100 AGN adapter, running Vista 64 SP2 currently running 802.11G. I want to replace my current router with an "802.11N" but want to know whether my current laptop configuration will enable this change to wireless "N"..Can anyone advise me whether I can:        a) upgrade my router only (i.e. to N)....with the current laptop config ?        b) upgrade my router and upgrade this laptop hardware internally to "N" ?? (is this possible or cost prohibitive ?)        c) or is my only alternative to upgrade the router and purchase a Lan Adapter card for this laptop ??? (Note: I have suspicions that my laptop will NOT allow wireless "N" because after updating the 5100 adapter with the most current driver from Lenovo (i.e. 13.1.1.1, dated 1/13/2020), I find that this drivers' properties only provide wireless a, b, and g protocol choices for selection.....no "N" choice is available.) I am not sure whether this laptop's configuration is not capable of "N" or whether some driver and/or parameter is incorrectly set. Does anyone know for certain????(Incidentally, I have also updated this laptop with all required Microsoft Vista and Lenovo 64 bit SP2 drivers.).Thank you for your help.Regards,drc123

Answer:W500 w/Intel Wifi 5100 AGN compatible w/802.11n ?

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.

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

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.

also even in ideal situations you are not going to get the throughput specified in the n spec or advertised...

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!

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?

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.

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."

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?

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.

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 !!

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...

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.

Hello and welcome,
 
I don't speak for Lenovo, but the chance that they will generate a modified BIOS for that laptop is zero.
 
If you're looking to add dual-band capability use one of the dual-band adapters listed in the Hardware Maintenance Manual
 
They will show up as a/b/g/n usually - the "a" is the 5GHz tip-off. Some of the Intel cards in the HMM don't indicate that, but a search on the FRU number indicates that they are dual band.
 
They seem to be available and inexpensive.
 
Be sure to get one with the matching Lenovo FRU number.  As you've discovered, a generic card won't work.

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.

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.

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 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?

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. The computer suddenly hung by itself, and caps lock light blinking. I had to turn off the computer by holding the power switch.After start, the wireless behaving strangely:* before "ifconfig wlan0 up", the wireless light is off* after "ifconfig wlan0 up", the wireless light is on* after "ifconfig wlan0 down", the wireless light is off -- never like this before! 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. But when I used the hardware switch to turn off the wireless and turned it on again, the wireless suddenty worked again! But the wireless light behavior (turning off when I brought down the network interface) persists.  The second error (Feb 9, 2009)  I ... Read more

Answer:T400 with Intel 5100 : wireless-related crashes on Linux

Hi. I have exactly the same problem. I'm running Linux Mint 6 (64 bit) on my T400, which is a distribution based on Ubuntu 8.10. Everything works great apart from the system occationally freezing and caps lock light blinking.  Has only happened while I have been connected to wireless networks, so the problem may be wireless related, but I'm not sure. Just like you, I have found no traces of the error in logs.

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?

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.
