ThinkPad T400 (6475-FP1) - Can't turn off Bluetooth & Wireless problems

2013-01-17, 12:00 PM

Im on a ThinkPad T400 (6475-FP1)
I just upgraded to Windows 8, and it's working fine except some wireless problems.

1.
I want to turn off Bluetooth because I don't need it.
How do I do that?

2.
Im having some problems with wireless.
It works at my home, but it doesn't connect on my University wireless.
I know my wireless card (Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100 AGN) is not supported yet on Windows 8, but if anyone knows a solution, type it here.

Thanks in advance.

Bring up Settings charm. At the bottom it says "Change PC Settings". That looks like the title of the settings above (to me) but it's a link. Click it. Then click "wireless" on the left.

 

Is there a bluetooth contol  slider there?

As far as bluetooth, Fn + F5 will let you turn off the radio. You can also go into the BIOS under security/I-O Port Access and disable it. As far as the 5100 wireless card, there is a note on the intel site that says this:

"If your system had Windows 7 and Intel PROSet/Wireless Software installed prior to upgrading to Windows 8, then Intel PROSet/Wireless Software will not install the first time. You need to install Intel PROSet/Wireless Software a second time for it to install correctly."

I would suggest the newest drivers from the Intel site. If you go here, they will make suggestions:

I do not respond to requests for private, one-on-one help. Your questions should be posted in the appropriate forum where they may help others as well.

If a response answers your question, please mark it as the accepted solution.
