Wireless LED constantly blinks on Windows XP (Thinkpad W500 4058)

2009-03-31, 4:55 AM

Hi everyone,

 

The Wireless LED on my W500 constantly blinks eventhough it doesn't transmitting anything. I find it really distracting. It also makes soft noise along with the blinks, which is also really really distracting too!

 

Currently, I'm running XP SP3 and Ubuntu. It is fine on Ubuntu, but not on XP.

 

Anyone, please, help me with this. I constantly find myself turning of the wireless since the blink and the sound is way too distracting.

 

Thanks in advance!

Quoc
