T430s Wireless switch doesnt work

2014-03-12, 4:00 AM

My wireless switch doesn't work. I turn the switch on both from the F5+Fn and the little button on the side of the computer. But, the computer still showed "please turn on wireless hardware". I used the one key recovery to turn the computer back to factory settings, but it still didn't work. Any suggestion??? Thank you.

Hi,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

Check in BIOS if Wi-Fi is turned on. Try reinstalling the Wireless drivers.

 

What happens when you press FN+F5? May I know which operating system you are using?

 

Hope to hear back from you soon!

 

Best regards,

Mithun.

Hi,
I checked the bios. the wireless and bluetooth have enabled. I reinstalled the wireless driver. But it still doesn't work. When I press F5+Fn , there is a Window jumped out and showed "to use wireless radios: please turn on the hardware wireless radio switch shown."

My system is windows 7 home preium. My network adapter is Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 AGN. Bluetooth is bluetooth 4.0 with Antenna. Currently, both of them doesn't work. Thank you

Does the switch flick 'too easily'? Maybe the switch is broken inside.

Hi,

 

It sounds like a broken switch. You can refer the hardware maintenance manual and try reseating the switch. Otherwise, contact Lenovo technical support for assistance.

 

Click here to open a link where you can select the country and get the exact contact support number. I’m sure they will be a great help.

 

Best Regards,

Mithun.
