Re: Broadcom WiFi issues after sleep/hibernate

Hi Dorin56 - thanks for the additional info.  The issue you describe sounds just like the issue I have - not connecting after waking up.

 

I'll keep an eye out for new broadcom drivers (from all vendors) and post any findings as well!

 

John

Re: Broadcom WiFi issues after sleep/hibernate

Hi all,

I install one application on my computer, tested and uninstall this.

On uninstall windows, I see one application named "Broadcomm Wireless" or same.

I uninstall this application and now my computer after wake-up work ok :

- connect instant on same router

- connect after 1-5 minutes on another router - I use computer home and at work, sometimes computers sleep when go to one location to another.

Try Acer version - uninstall another Broadcomm Wireless application

Re: Broadcom WiFi issues after sleep/hibernate

I also have the same probelm- no connection after wake up.

 

S10-3t, Windows 7 ultimate.

Broadcom wireless component.

 

I have to reboot to get the connection back.

Do you guys find a solution?

Use Acer driver for the Broadcom?

 

Why no prople from Lenova gives us a solution?

Re: Broadcom WiFi issues after sleep/hibernate

Exactly the same problem with my s10-3t (bought a week ago). Can't reconnect or connect to a different WLAN after sleep or hibernate on all my WLANs (4, each with different hardware).

 

Other laptops don't have this problem...

 

Come on lenovo people, say something...

Re: Broadcom WiFi issues after sleep/hibernate

A Man Happy followup...

 

After searching and trying a lot of different drivers that very much resulted in the same behavior, I finally got one that seems to be working. It's still early to be sure but it successfully connected to my WLAN after hibernation 5 consequent times. With all other drivers it failed every time!

 

Anyway, enough said. Try it, at your own risk of course, and post the result:

 

Driver Name: Compal BCM4313 WLAN Card 5.60.48.35  Direct link: -- > X < --

Instructions: Extract the files but don't use the setup.exe. Just go to device manager and update the adapter driver using the files in INF folder

 

I'll post a followup if the problem occurs again.

 

Alex

Re: Broadcom WiFi issues after sleep/hibernate

Hello Smartminion, I just run into the same problem. After going back to WEP key, coming out of hibernate was no longer a problem. On 2 pcs´s it didnot work with WPA. Also under Linux Suse WPA failed. My iPad needed no settings change at all (used to work fine with WPA).

 

Hope it helps y out.

Re: Broadcom WiFi issues after sleep/hibernate

Hello all

 

TODAY I FINALLY FIXED THIS PROBLEM ( HIBERNATION)

 

It was quite simple. 

Lenovo released a new BIOS which does not automatically download through Lenovo update. 

The link is here http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds035965

 

After i downloased the problem was not fixed. 

 

I then went to the support page of lenovo and selected wifi drivers. I downloaded the latest 17.12.0 version. During installtion i was given the option to "repair" or "unistall" meaning that the driver was already that version. I "repaired".

 

Straight away the wifi started working after booting the laptop( which never did in the past. 

 

Here is the interesting part. When i go to devices and then Intel Dual band wifi  7260 the dirver now is shown as 16.6.0.8 verion . I dont know how this happened sinc ethe download says 17.12.0 BUT IT WORKS.

GOOD LUCK
