t430s Wi-Fi connectivity issue

2013-05-21, 11:37 AM

Hi, 

I have problem with wi-fi on my Lenovo T430s. Wi-fi just does not show, there is only bluetooth radio. I did not found any solution to this. Restart neither new drivers does not work. Is the only solution to send it to service? 

 

Thx for answers

Thanks for advice. 

I tried Lenovo software update (BIOS and Wifi driver) and it solved it. So I hope it will last. 

Thx anyway

Hi,

 

Have you tried to press Fn+F5 ( Does wlan show there )?

How about Device manager do you see wlan in network devices list?

Go to BIOS menu. When you start laptop press F1 key to access BIOS

 

then go to Security -> I/O Port access -> see if wireless is disabled there
