Custom T410 support for Intel MyFi

2011-08-06, 15:47 PM

I have a T410 that I ordered customized, and it doesn't have the latest Intel MyFi technology.  Is there any way to update this product (e.g. with an accessory) so that  it will support that technology?

 

My Product ID is 2516CTO and the serial number is xxxxxxxxxx.

 

Thanks very much!

Did you get it with an Intel wireless card? You have to install the MiFi part of the driver. Go to Programs and Features, Intel PROSet/Wireless, change, custom and then you can select the MiFi and WiDi stuff.

Thanks for your reply.  I followed your instructions, and Mifi and WiDi are not shown. I guess the drivers didn't come with my hardware. :-(

 

I have an Intel 1000 BGN and the Device Manager utility says the drivers are  up-to-date.  Is there a plug-in accessory for my machine that would provide the additional capability?

 

Thanks again!

I solved the problem!!  I downloaded the Wireless Link 1000 driver from Intel and enabled everything.  I then went to the Netgear site (I'm getting the PTV2000) and  found a download link for the Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) package.

 

I don't know why Lenovo didn't provide that software.  After all, it's free.

My experience is that MyWiFi (execpt WiDi - haven't used) is half-baked and user unfriendly. It says you can be connected to two things at once -- but I try, I loose my main connection on one of the computers. It says you can share like over a USB stick, but without the stick. Nothing shows you how.

Just FYI, the My Wifi is in the driver Lenovo provides, but does not install by default.  When installing (or doing a repair) you need to choose to do a custom install and then will be offered the option to choose that as part of what gets installed.
