Interer wireless adapter is missed

I'm not clear on what you mean when you say wireless adapter is 'missed'. Do you mean you think the adapter is MISSING?

If you have a Transport X1000, you should have the internal wireless adapter. However, it may simply be turned OFF.
To turn on your wireless, just press the Fn and F2 keys at the same time.

Boot your laptop into windows. Go here to IBM Lenovo support and download the Cisco Wireless LAN Mini PCI adapter driver >>>>>>>

Once downloaded just execute the file as it is an .exe file, you will the wireless icon appear in the system tray (bottom right of the screen).

Limited or no Wireless connection

It appears that the TCP/IP got disabled or removed.
Check the TCP/IP settinge of the wireless adapter, it should be the same as the network adapter.

Internal wireless card has been disabled. How do you fix this?

Hi car7924,

First, make sure that the wireless switch on the left side of the computer is turned on (this should make the WIFI light go on -- beneath the lower right corner of the screen). If it doesn't work, then try going to Start Menu > Control Panel > Network and Internet Connections > Network Connections.

You should see the Wireless Network Adapter in the window that comes up. If you don't, you need to download the driver for that adapter. The most common adapter in the D820 is the Dell 1390 WLAN MiniCard, and the driver for it can be downloaded at the following web address:

If, on the other hand, you do see the Wireless Network Adapter, but it says "Disabled" underneath the name, then right-click it and select "Enable." This should make it work.

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind regards,
