Re: Z560 wifi not working-done everything forum has suggested (Any luck)

Well the  network adapter that I am using is given below:

 

Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter

 

@YIGIT: Do you have any clue about the guy who had posted this problem initially. Because my problem is exactly the same. As he has not posted back anything so I guess he might have the solutions so that we can msg or mail him. Its really urgent for me if possible help me out..

This may / may not be relevant as unfortunately I'm not aquainted with the preinstalled utilities on Lenovo systems in your country, but here goes in the hope it might help.

 

Did your Z560 come with an Internet Security / Virus software preinstalled as test or full version? If so have you installed it fully or uninstalled it fully? If not please do one or the other; I've often seen cases where, although not properly installed or activated, such utilities have prevented systems from joining a wireless network, wired was never affected.

Are you using WEP Encryption? if yes then it is a windows problem that can be easily solved (i will post it if you are using WEP).

If it is WAP, then the router is the source of the problem.

A long as you see the other networks, then the card itself is.

I am the person that originally reported this problem.  I just gave up after 4-5 hours of trying to figure it out.  I just returned the machine to the store and got a new one.  The new one worked perfectly right out of the box.  I am guessing there was something wrong with the wireless card but who knows.  If you still can, just return it and says it does not work and get a new one.

Re: Z560 wifi not working-done everything forum has suggested (Any luck)

Hello khaledseif

 

 

It is WAP only..Yes I am able to see the wireless netoworks with perfect signal strength and it is unsecured. Well the problem is intermittent..I got connected to the network once then there the problem came up.. And right now around 150 ppl using the same router. All having access. So I am sure the problem has to be with my wireless card...yes I did try with couple of other wifi networks, it gets connected..

 

So do u suggest to change the Wireless card? Is it so let me know..if i need to change it..?

Hello Andy..

 

Right now in my laptop there is no antivirus installed..windows xp professional is loaded..So there is no security at all...The problem is pretty intermittent..So I do no think there is any problem with the secuirty as such..i guess it has too be problem with the Wireless lan card..As in this thread people have already reported the same problem....so they have changed the laptop..So i suppose this is a problem with lenovo z560.

Re: Z560 wifi not working-done everything forum has suggested (Any luck)

 

I had a wireless connect problem just before my battery problem surfaced.  I searched the web and Lenovo Energy Management seemed to be involved as part of the problem/solution.  So I downloaded and installed the latest version of Lenovo Energy Management from the Lenovo support website.  Then, 

 

  • Right-click on the battery icon in the System Tray. 
  • Select "Power Options"->"Change Plan Settings (in any plan)"->"Change Advanced Power Settings". 
  • Select the "Lenovo Energy Management" tab and then click on the "Enable Lenovo Energy Management" button. 

I did it for all three standard power plans but I'm not sure doing all three is really necessary.  Anyway, the next time I tried a wireless connect, I could see my network and was able to manually connect to it.  You might have to do "Fn+Esc" and "Fn+F5" before attempting a connection. 

 

Having to restore Lenovo Energy Management didn't make much sense to me but it got my wireless connection up and running again, so I'm happy.  Now if only my "plugged in, not charging" problem would go away.
