Thinkpad T410 Wireless Card not Detected

Hello Guys,


The Wireless network card from my Thinkpad T410 is not being detected anymore. Right now I m using Ubuntu 11.10, but the same problem occurs in ArchLinux or Windows 7.

Sometimes the wireless card is being detected if the laptop has been powered off for a couple of hours, but this is not a rule.

I searched around and couldn't find a solution.

The button that turns the wireless on/off is set to on and the bluetooth works just fine.


Any help is highly appreciated.

Re: Thinkpad T410 Wireless Card not Detected

hey slither,

kindly reinstall the original OS that came with your unit. have it on mono-boot, no linux OS installed.

test the wireless card again and get back to us. i suspect that the linux you have installed might have caused the issue.

I never used dual boot.

I reinstalled windows 7 64 bit though. The problem continues.

Call the Lenovo Service. In my opinion it is a hardware problem - either the wireless card or the system board.
