All of my friends can able to work using wireless connection network. Do any body know the solution? And I can connect internet by using cable.

What does device manager show concerning your wireless adapter?

Hi Mark,
 
I have this same issue with a new machine, and while I had found the FN - F5 combination to enable/disable the wireless functionality, hitting that only ever shows the disable icon on the screen and never shows the wireless icon as being active.
 
When I look through Network Connections, the NIC itself is Enabled and displays as Not Connected.  When I try to search for networks in range, there are none to be found, despite the fact that I am sitting beside the SMC router, with an IBM Thinkpad with another Intel wireless card inside it that is happily connected.  I am also able to pull out one of my old Dells with a piece of crap USB 1.0 wireless NIC and connect it as well no problem, so it is not an issue of maximum connections.  I have MAC filtering set up in the router, and the router itself recognizes the Lenovo machine as a valid client via it's MAC address and has imported the machines name into the client table, which is a default function that sort of let's you know you're good to go from a config perspective.  It has even reserved it an IP address, yet the machine itself refuses to connect to pick up the address.
 
I currently have the Lenovo machine connected through the router using the wired NIC, but need to get the wireless working as the machine is for my sister-in-law.  I have tried to update the driver, disable/enable, looked in the BIOS (limited options available) and am looking for some direction on what to try next.
 
Any suggestions?
 
Thanks
Todd

OK, go figure, I have one of those rumoured built in Bluetooth wireless units, which has the additional on/off switch underneath the mouse pad.  In short, RTWFM, Read The Whole F----- Manual!
 
Thanks for being there all the same! :manvery-happy:

Hi,

I had problem with Wireless Internet Connection in Lenovo 3000 Y410.

I was looking for the solution. Everytime i try to manage wireless device my Laptop was showing message as No WLAN card giving me the wrong impression of lacking hardware for WiFi.

But, it is solved when i used Fn+F5 key to switch use of Wireless connection from Bluetooth.

So it seems it's just lack of knowledge of using the keys properly.

 

Thank you for the advice.

Hi,

With Window 7 ultimate 32- bit, you have to simply switch from bluetooth mode to WiFi mode by pressing Fn+F5.

Be sure you have switch bluetooth/WiFi button on. It's on front panal ( Read user manual ).

But in Window Xp professional i guess you need to update your drivers too, in addition to Fn+F5.  Latest Drivers downloaded from lenovo site didn't help me. I downloaded and istalled driver checker software. Rest of the work was done by driver checker chittochat. Thanks a lot to that program uploader in www. torrentz.com.

Best of luck.

Shailesh.

Hi,

 

I have a different issue with wireless internet connection for Y410 3000 model. Eventhough I am able to connect to the internet by wifi, the connection is very slow. With the same wifi connection I am able to connect a different model laptop and this confirms that the issue is with wifi only.

 

Can anyone suggest idea to improve the performance ..
