Wireless LAN Adapter

Hello,
My X-41 tablet's wireless LAN adapter seems to have disappeared. I've tried to reinstall it from the Lenovo website, but it doesn't appear in the device manager afterwards. Also, when I hit fn-F5, I have the option of turning on the bluetooth radio, but there is no option for turning on/off the 802.11 radio. Any thoughts?
Thx
B

Fix wifi association problem


(a) Ensure the Wireless Device Switch is On. Just throwing that out there. Your WiFi adapter is noting down some kind of signal strength as well, yes?
(b) Try uninstalling the WiFi Adapter (Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 (802.11abgn 2x2), or, Atheros XSPAN HB116 802.11abgn) in Device Manager, then rebooting and let Windows reinstall the device.
(c) Try updating the drivers from here.
http://support.fujitsupc.com/CS/Portal/support.do?srch=DOWNLOADS There are Windows 8.1 x86 and x64 driver packages there.
(d) If the device is working fine (according to Windows) but is still not receiving or sending, then it may be some antenna problem, and you'll have to contact Fujitsu Support for repair. Make sure you've registered your new tablet with Fujitsu.
Post back with how this goes.

Can not get to wifi


Wi-Fi technology enables wireless Internet and network access through public and private hot spots.


These hot spots are widely located in homes, restaurants, bookstores, coffee shops and other businesses, so you can keep connected wherever you may travel.


To connect to Wi-Fi, you must have an enabled wireless adapter on your computer.


Most modern laptops and many desktops have this adapter built into the system, but many lack such capabilities.


However, a wireless adapter is easily installed via USB, which allows you to connect to available networks through Windows 7.


Enable your wireless adapter. Most laptops have a hot key labeled with a radio antenna.

Hold the "Fn" key and press this key to toggle wireless on or off.


Desktops likely have a physical antenna on the back of your computer that is typically always on. If you don't see such a hot key or antenna, you need to acquire a USB wireless adapter.


Attach the USB wireless adapter to an available USB port on your computer.

Windows 7 will automatically install the necessary drivers for most adapters.


If it does not, insert the CD that came with the USB wireless adapter into your drive and choose to install their drivers.


Restart your computer if you do not see a wireless icon in your Windows 7 notification area.

Click the wireless icon in the Windows 7 notification area and click the network name to which you want to connect.


If this is your home network, the correct network will likely be the one with the strongest signal.


Click "Connect" and enter the wireless security passphrase, if required.

Only secured networks will ask for a passphrase, but some public networks will require browser authentication instead.


Open your browser and navigate to any website.

If the hot spot requires browser authentication, your website request is redirected to an information page.


Follow the instructions on this page to get Wi-Fi.

This may entail clicking "Accept," entering a given password or entering a cell phone number.


After authentication, attempt your website again to verify accessibility.


Hope this helps

No wireless adapter


Hi,

Have you check the wireless card under the Device Manager?

Start->Control Panel->Device Manager

Under Device Manager look for Network Adapter there will be sub folders under network adapter look for the wireless device. If its not showing it means that the Device is not working. If you want to make sure try to reinstall the Operating System and after that check again the Device Manager.

Wireless internet access


A wireless 802.11b LAN adapter is included in you tablet, activate it thru Control Panel / Wireless. Unfortunately this is the first generation standard and as such is extremely slow, has very limited range and is no longer supported by a lot of the newer generation devices/hotpoints.

PC shuts down when accessing wireless network


Check in Device Manager to see if there is a problem with the Wireless Network Adapter. If you see a Yellow! or a RedX, then right-click on the network adapter see what the status of it is. It has a troubleshooting section. The only part of your wireless adapter that could possibly shut down the computer would be the driver.

Lenovo x60 wireless problem


Verify that the radio is enabled.
It is possible to disable the transmitter of the wireless card without Device Manager showing any problems.
Note: Follow the instructions provided to enable wireless card.
  • Most wireless cards will put an icon in the system tray (the line of icons in the lower right corner of your screen). Right click this icon and it may have a menu option to enable/turn on the wireless radio.
  • Some systems come with a Wireless Radio switch to disable the wireless radios. The wireless radio switch is usually located on the front side of the machine. If you are having difficulties with wireless connections, make sure the Wireless Radio switch is set in the On position.
  • Check for association to an Access Point.
    If you double-click the previously mentioned system tray icon, the configuration utility of the wireless card will appear. This utility will be able to show the status of the wireless card, showing what channel the card is using and what signal strength is being received. It may be difficult to maintain a connection if signal strength is low due to either interference or distance. For example, interference can be caused by 2.4GHz cordless phones, other Access Points in the area, and physical structures such as load bearing walls or metal partitions.
    Note:
    The utility can be used to configure the wireless card settings, but if using Windows XP Zero Configuration or Access Connections, you will need to use those programs to actually configure the wireless card as they will overwrite the setting of the utility.
