Wifi Not Working - ThinkPad T420s

2016-07-21, 20:24 PM



No matter what I do, I  cannot get the wifi to work on my ThinkPad T420s running Windows 10. It has never given me issues until randomly I set my computer down and came back to it to find a red x by the icon on the bottom right. I've already tried the radio switch on the right side, and I've tried fn+f5 to no avail. I have uninstalled and reinstalled drivers and I've even reinstalled Windows 10. In device manager, the wifi adapter (intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205) shows up just fine, and says "This device is working properly" in properties. Honestly, it seems like it's behaving as if I have turned the radio switch off but that is not the case. Any help would be appreciated.

Was it resolved ? Mine stopped working after a fresh install of Windows 10.
