Question about IBM ThinkPad R52 Notebook

1 Answer

Thinkpad Issues Hi folks, can you guys help me with this ? When I am connected to any wireless signal ( read Excellent or Very good strength ) , my wireless card keeps disconnecting and connects back to the same signal once again. Sometimes this happens almost every 2 mins. There are a bunch of people who connect to the same signal with their R52s or R60s. And they dont face anything like this. I tried to get rid of all my preferred networks and add just the one Iam using. - No use. I also tried to repair my connection, still no help. I also reinstalled the drivers from the thinkpad site.. Didnt help either. Can any of you suggest what else I could do ? Thanks a ton in advance

I had the same problem, in an Acer aspire 5630. Driving me bonkers for months. No one here could come up with a solution--and I wasn't the only one with this problem. Then it stopped working completely, and I spent 8 hours trying to fix it, including setting up a new home network via my ancient router. Lost a Saturday. Then I found out my IP had turned off my service because I was late on a payment. Damn. However, once it came back up, the problem was gone. Astounding. Do you use a router? When the tech told me to start it up, he first had me physically unscrew the cable from the modem before powering it up. You might try that, and reconfigure your home network.

    I have no doubt that it is something in your machine--just as somehow I had my network reconfigured incorrectly, and during the time my service was turned off, I must have reconfigured it 5 different ways. I wish I knew which one was the magic formula. This is a known problem with Aspires, and no one could figure it out on this free website. Now the important question: are you in warranty? Remember, if you purchased it with a credit card that automatically doubles the warranty, you may be even if you think you weren't--just in case you need to send it back.

After installing my lexmark 7675 my laptop cannot access the wireless network


Wireless communication issues could be due to wireless signal quality, signal interference, firewall, etc. Make sure your printer is positioned where it receives excellent wireless signal strength (avoid physical obstructions whenever possible) and away from appliances which emit wireless signals (e.g. microwave ovens, cordless telephones, baby monitors, and other wireless electronics) that may cause interference. Make sure to allow full access to all Lexmark software and printer communication processes in the program rules/permissions for your firewall.

You may also refer to these articles from the Lexmark website to identify and rectify this problem:

My new Lenovo thinkpad sees my D-Link Dr615 with a good signal strength but fails to connect. Both my other laptop and desktop connect just fine. What can I do?


My housemate and I have the same problem with our ThinkPads.
Apparently there's some compatibility issues with the wireless cards in some ThinkPads and some wireless routers.
Try a Belkin router - if you're in the UK, go to Maplin and buy one. If it doesn't work, you can return the router to Maplin and get your money back.

good luck

Wireless Network Connection constantly reading low/vlow/no signal


There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.
1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up.
2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? ie. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router.
3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply).
4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.
