    I have the same problem, but pressing the WLAN button does not turn the WiFi on. It seems to be permanently off. Is there any way to get around pressing this button?

I've been having the same problem here at work (Microsoft) with 15 machines in my lab and I just figured it out after wasting two frustrating hours trying out different drivers. If you press F10 to boot it into the BIOS at start-up and then arrow over to the Advanced tab, there is a place where you can enable the WLAN (F5/F6). Hit F10 to save and the WiFi key should light up as Windows is loading. If it doesn't, try pressing it and it should.

YESSSSSSS!

Is your WLAN turned on? It's usually a switch or button somewhere on the machine with the WiFi icon around it. Kind of like this:

You can check the wireless adapter is working properly in device manager: control panel>hardware and sound, under devices and printers, choose 'device manager'. Expand the network adapters menu and find the wifi adapter. Right click on this and click properties. You can see if the device is working properly under the general tab. You can also try updating the driver; from the drivers tab, choose update driver and then choose to search automatically for updated software.
Also, try clearing browsing history and cookies: Go to start>control panel>network and internet, under the internet options heading, choose 'delete browsing history and cookies' restart the browser.

What is error code 651?


I have fixed mind through following steps, OS Windows 7. This works if you can still use cable internet, so that system can download the driver.

In my case there was no wifi utility, no connections detecting, no bars IIII.

Solution:

Please note it is mostly to do with your network drivers, if you go to device manager under the network adapters, you will see network controller marked in yellow. Dont worry.

To make your wifi connection work please complete the following steps:

Goto:

Device manager > trouble shooting ( column 3 , second last row )

Now under " Hardware and Sounds" heading go to configure a device.

It will start trouble shooting automatically, and try to download and install the right network control driver.

My system is using: Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller and after downloading the driver. I have now following installed.

Realtek RTL8191 SE802.11 b/g/n Wifi Adapter ( this was missing )

Now when I go back to device manager I have both are functioning and after reboot I automatically connect to the wifi. So everything is fine.

So my advice to all whatever make is your PC / OS , do go to device manager and try trouble shooting.

For those who have found this solution helpful, please email me: manny.nlAThotmail.com

Goodluck!

Welcome to Fixya

Make sure that all driver are installed. Especially the wireless LAN driver. Go to control panel then click on system then click device manager. Look for the network adapter category. There should be no exclamation mark to any of the devices listed there. You can download all your computer drivers here. If everything are ok then all you need to do is to go to control panel. Click network connection. Look for icon named Wireless then click on it. Search your router and connect to it.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Cannot turn on wifi on T400. Intel 5100 card


Is the "broadcast-tower" light on (the leftmost icon on the lite-bar below the screen)? Have you got an available/working WiFi router? Have you been able to choose a network to connect to? My T400 works fine when all the above are enabled..

Wifi connectivity problem


It's possible that the driver for your wireless adapter is already installed. Check under Device Manager > Network Adapters if there is anything pertaining to your wireless adapter. Make sure that your wireless adapter (under Device manager > Network adapters) does not have any red X or yellow question mark.

Red X indicated that it's disabled , while yellow question mark will suggest that you need to update the driver. If your wireless adapter is working properly under Device Manager > Network adapters then you will need to configure it's utility for wireless connection.

If you are running windows XP, look for the wireless icon in the lower right side of your task bar and use it to connect to your preferred network.

Good luck and have a nice day!
