I have a ThinPad T431s , which does not detect any wireless network, even though the wireless adapter is active . To fix this, I have to connect to the network through the network cable after the connection is established proceed to disable the wireless adapter and turn again , then it detects the wireless networks .
The big problem is that it is becoming very common this situation.
What could be the reason for this?
Thanks in advance.

Have you tried to update your WLAN driver?
System Update is a good tool to detect drivers and helps you to update them:
I would try that first and if it still has the problem, try to respond with:
- Operativing system (x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit)) (See Control Panel -> System)
- Product Number (P/N)

I have kind of similar problem.
I have to be very close to my router to connect to wifi. The problem doesn't appear on other devices.
But interestingly, when I connect to my mobile hotspot (smartphone tethering) the wifi network sometimes get visible even from a further distance.
Any help will be much appreciated.
