T430 wifi light will not turn off. Have I been hacked? lol

Hello everyone!

I installed Lenovo Settings App and now the wifi light at the bottom of the T430 screen will not turn off regardless if the wifi or airplane mode is on or off.

Have I been hacked? haha

Thanks in advance for your thoughts!

Cheers,
Kevin

Does toggling the hardware wifi switch get the light to go off?

Hmm, if the WiFi switch on the right side of the case is off, it should not matter if it is airplane mode or not, the radio should be off, so if the radio is still showing as ON only after installing the settings app, then you might try removing it and reinstalling it.

 

Also, assuming you do not have black helicopters circling your home and/or a plumbing van permanently parked across the street, you might run the ThinkVantage System Update to update the drivers on your system, or manually updated them to the latest available... in particular the Hotkey Features Integration software that was just updated on May 5th 2017?

 

Best of luck,
