Y430 WIFI not working but Bluetooth does!

2012-03-13, 14:45 PM

Have Y430 Ideapad. Things were great until yesterday when suddenly wifi stopped working, in the sense it's not detecting my wifi modem. I checked bluetooth it worked fine.The light that turns red and pink while on wifi now is glowing RED alone! Any ideas whats wrong and please suggest ways to sort this out please!


Tried reinstalling drivers from lenovo website. Did the one key recovery, it said some files corrupted and said its all fixed but still the same problem! Im tethering my mobile's wifi with laptop now :-( 


Read somewhere uninstall Lenovo readycom...tried that too!

Hello Krizany,


Check the issue by pressing Fn + F5 to enable or disable the Wireless. Also switch off the Wireless switch from the front side and then turn it on again. I request you to download and install the Updated Wireless driver, Energy management driver and at last most importantly Update the BIOS of your system from the below mentioned web link according to your Operating System.



Kindly check that you need to download and install the correct driver for your Wireless Card.
