Re: Issue with Lenovo B560 - Wireless LAN Adapter - WLAN

2011-09-13, 15:15 PM

Yesterday I booted from a Ubuntu 11.04 live cd. Ubuntu works fine but the wireless device didn't work at all. The device was found but it couldn't be activated and therefore I couldn't connect to my wlan.

 

Ubuntu recognised that there is a proprietary driver (the broadcom driver) and "downloaded" it. I guess Ubuntu got it on dvd because there was no connection to the internet. Nevertheless the wireless device couldn't be activated.

 

I won't try a different linux live cd because it seems other Lenovo laptops have problems with the wireless device either.

 

I'm going to bring the B560 to Lenovo to give a repair a second try.

A few days ago I got my B560 back from the German Lenovo Repair Center. This time the mainboard was replaced. Now it seems to be working ... I had no problems with the wlan device so far.

 

I'm very happy with the Lenovo support. Lenovo managed to repair and send back the B560 within one week.

Hello,

I have similar problem, but the laptop lost the wireless connection after day/two days. I is very hard to duplicate it in the lenovo center, because lost of the connection isn´t with the same time period.

When I lost he connection I can´t connect again. I must restart the computer and then is fine.

Hello,

my switch is turned ON. I have the connection but every two or three days I lost the connection. I think that it is driver issue or hardware issue.

Similar problem. Wireless card was inoperable/not visible.

 

Turned out after much investigation that Win7 firewall was fighting with PC Tools anti-virus.

 

Turned off Win7 Firewall and got my wireless reception back.
