T530 wifi problem / WAN Miniport (Network monitor) #2 problem

2012-11-28, 4:37 AM

 

ADMIN EDIT - I believe we have a solution the second symptom and title of the thread contained in the related KB article link above this thread and found in the post marked with the solution.   I've started a new thread and am moving all comments related to Symptom #1 below to the new thread here

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Hello,

 

I have two problems with my brand new T530. These problems might (?) be related to each other.

OS: Win8.

 

1. My wifi suddenly turns off several times each day: PC disconnects from network, cannot see any other wifi network but the wifi light is still on. "Troubleshoot problem" solves the problem for a while but later it turns off again. I tried both "Resolving Power Management Scenario 1" and "Resolving Power Management Scenario 2" suggested by lenovo support but these do not solve my problem.

Network adapter: Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6205

Any suggestion?

 

2. In Device Manager uder Network adapters "WAN Mininiport (Network monitor) #2" has a yellow mark. In the properties there is written: "This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)". I tried to update the driver but the device's driver is up to date. I tried to uninstall the driver but it is impossible. 

Any suggestion?

 

Thank you!

 

NOTE THE SOLUTION marked in this thread APPLIES ONLY TO SYMPTOM #2

Solved! See the solution

I don't have problems with wifi cutting out but do have the problem with the miniport. Will it be a problem if I disable it. I want to use a sim card in my Twist, will this affect it?
