Another T500 Network Connection Failure

2008-11-03, 13:11 PM

I have read most of the posts about T400 and T500's dropping the network connection, and it seems to include both the 5100 and 5300 cards. My T500 does it too, and the hours spent on the phone with the service center only yielded a response that it would happen when I unplugged from AC power. But it does it at any time, usually when I am just reading my notes before continuing with a paper that I am writing, etc.

(I have already had the problems with the computer going to sleep and not being arousable, and have downloaded the new drivers, AND changed the configuration to have it NEVER go into hibernation--seems to have worked. )

Has anyone yet gotten a fix or reasonably good answer from Lenovo?
