T430s with (turned off) wifi adapter

2013-08-22, 15:05 PM

 Hi everybody,

 

I have T430s with windows 8 and the WLAN card: Ultimate-N 6300 AGN and mobile broadband module (WWAN).

 

I used it now for 10 days and I could switch between wifi and WWAN without any problems.

 

Today I was on the WWAN, and when I come back home I tried to switch on the wifi adapter through windows as usual but it refuses to switch on and give me the message (could not turn on).

 

My computer is up to date.

 

Where is the problem?

I closed the computer and opened it after one hour, now the wifi adapter disappeared completely!!! although the bluetooth is still available.

Does the wireless adapter appear in Device Manager or is there a yellow question mark? Either way, uninstall it and reboot the computer. That should cure a driver (software) issue. Could also be a failed wireless board (hardware).
