Unspecified warning in hardware test

The first hardware check on my new K450e gave a warning in the wireless test, but didn't say what it thought the problem might be:

 

Wireless

Display name1x1 11b/g/n Wireless LAN PCI Express Half Mini Card Adapter
MAC Address(deleted)
ManufacturerRealtek Semiconductor Corp.
Name{243A0212-E47E-42E7-90FC-0A9E26F340E7}
Product name1x1 11b/g/n Wireless LAN PCI Express Half Mini Card Adapter
Diagnostics
Radio enabled testPassed
Network scan testPassed
Signal strength testPassed
Local connection testWarning

Result code: WWF00F000-JK8Y0F

 

And tha's all. What is it warning me about? What action should I take?

Re: Unspecified warning in hardware test

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !

 

I'm really not finding anything useful in regards to the results code you've listed.  I'm wondering though if the failed Local Connection Test isn't related to a wired ethernet connection and the diagnostics are just reporting the results of all the network connections.  If your K450e is close to your router I would try connecting it with an ethernet cable and then re-run the hardware check.

Re: Unspecified warning in hardware test

Unfortunately, the router is in a different part of the house. But would a warning about the unused wired connection reallly be shown in the wireless section of the report?

Anyhow, when searching the forum for an answer, I found other questions about warnings with no specifics. It would be nice for Lenovo to fix the test tool so that it actually tells you what it thinks might be wrong.  Smiley Frustrated

"But would a warning about the unused wired connection reallly be shown in the wireless section of the report?"

 

I was just taking a best guess there since there seems to be no definitive answer available.  My assumption is that the test maybe lumping the wired into the wireless section especially if it there isn't a separate section for the wired.  I am assuming that the wireless is working Ok.

 

"It would be nice for Lenovo to fix the test tool so that it actually tells you what it thinks might be wrong."

 

I suspect it isn't a needed fix, but rather information related to error and results codes needs to be relayed down from the engineering level to the consumer level.  A good example is some of the errors found in the Windows Event Logs.  Although Microsoft will offer a search on the specific problem, a lot of times the results are a "not found" screen.
