I have a W510 and both WiFi and WWAN is working but not simultaneously. I have tried to change the setup several times but I do not get them to work at the same time. If i connect the WiFi when WWAN is running, the WWAN is disconnected. It is like the WiFi overrides the WWAN connection and the internet connection turns of (ie WWAN). I am using the WiFi connection to the printer and I do not want to turn of/on the WWAN connection every time I want to print something.
1. Is WWAN and WiFi supposed to work simultaneously?
2. If yes, what is the setup of both the WWAN and WiFi in "Acess Connections"? (Could you please add a print screen of the setup)
Solved! Go to Solution.

You can't connect simulteanously WWAN and WiFi.
There's no point to have 2 internet connections at the same time anyway.

Yep for that you can.
Make sure when you create your profile with access connection to connect adhoc with your printer not via your modem router.

I already have done that setup but it still does not work.
I have created two profiles in Access Conections :
1. My internet provider (WWAN 3G)
2. My local ad-hoc network (WiFi)
Could someone please send a print screen of the settings needed in Acess Connections?
Did you make sure that the option "Disconnect from the network when switching to a different location" under your profile "My internet provider (WWAN 3G)" is not checked? Also make sure that the option "Disconnect form the network and power off any wireless radio associated with this profile when switching to a different location" under the profile "My local ad-hoc network (WiFi)" is unchecked as well?
When you edit the profiles you should see this option under "General settings" tab for both profiles. For the WWAN profile there should also be a setting under the "Mobile broadband settings" tab that says "Turn WAN wireless radio off when disconnected". You could try to uncheck this one as well.
If it still doesn't work you could try to use AC to connect to one of the profiles and when connected press Fn-F5, click to turn on the other radio and use Windows to connect to the other network. To use Windows to connect click on the network icon in systray to get the list of available network and click to connect. I'm sure this would require all the auto switching and auto power off of the radio to be turned off as well.
If neither of this work your only option might be to uninstall/disable AC and use Windows only to connect.

I tried with AC and it did not work. I then uninstalled AC and tried Ad-hoc only with win7 and I could not make it work. Then I found out that Intel have a solution called Intel MyWiFi and after installation it was working perfect. The software allows the computer to create a PAN and all WiFi devices can be connected just like connecting to a normal router. Of course the network is only working as long as my computer is running.....

On my AC Profile, the option to "disconnect from the network..." is "checked off" AND "greyed out"....
Somehow, it gets set when I define a profile and I can not modify this... Is there some sort of a
"preference" that freezes this???
