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

2012-11-30, 17:10 PM

Same issue on X230 running windows 8.  I noticed the driver was installed on 11/28. 

 

Driver Management has concluded the process to add Service NdisWan for Device Instance ID ROOT\MS_NDISWANBH\0001 with the following status: 0.

I think it was installed after the action center requested a hardware scan.

 

I also have the problem with the Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 suddenly going to sleep (for lack of a better term).

new T430s with Windows 8 Pro WAN Miniport (network monitor) #2

2012-12-04, 4:38 AM

The lenovo solution center has alerted me to this problem just now. It says that "one or more devices have problems". And under Drivers it lists W AN Miniport (network monitor) #2, with status Disabled.

 

What is going on? There doesn't seem to be any way to fix this on the lenovo solution center. I updated, but I get the message that Windows has determined the driver software is up to date.

Same problem with the WAN Miniport on new Thinkpad Twist.  problem weren't there initially but probably start showing up after some updates.

 

Also have 2 unknown devices reported under device manager alert.  I think those were there all along but the previous version of the Lenovo console ignores but the updated version doesn't.

I have the same problem, contacted the technical support people from lenovo and they just informed me that its the software issue and I have to pay 199$ more to get any support and fix for the issue. 

 

I told them that the machine just got out of the box, I didnt' even got to use it for too long and the wifi is giving me so much trouble that I have to run troubleshoots every now and then. The guy answers, I should have read the warranty and they can't do anything to resolve this issue. 

 

I am already regretting buying this expensive machine from lenovo, I should have opted for a XPS or a macbook pro. They provide much better customer support. 

 

I hope you guys find a solution for the problem and post it on this forum, because we are not getting any fix from lenovo people anytime soon.

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

I have the exact same problem on the Wan Miniport  (started a thread last week).

 

Today my laptop did not /could not connect to the wifi AT ALL! I tried connecting to ethernet but that also did not work. Nothing I did worked! I called support and started a case and was told I'd hear back from someone within two hours. Of course, no one called me back.

 

Since I am on Windows 8, I made use of the Refresh which was nice--but I had to spend a couple hours re-installing microsoft office, browsers, and statistical programs that I use.

 

The upside is that wifi works again and that wan miniport problem is gone--of course my system is out of date. BUT now I am afraid to do the system updates for windows and for lenovo!

 

How did any of you handle this?
