Re: Wireless turns off on my T410

I was having the same problem as the original poster. I followed the advice to uninstall the Intel Wireless driver, and it completely killed my wireless connection!

 

I am now typing this from an ethernet internet connection, because your recommendation killed my wireless connection even after rebooting.

 

I am now trying to find the driver online to re-download it and get my internet working again.

Re: Wireless turns off on my T410

It shouldn't kill it. Your wireless should be controlled by Windows and not the Intel software.

Re: Wireless turns off on my T410

i also have the same problem.  

 

Its hopeless searching for fixes.  lenovo sent their service guys down to replace the wireless card, but the problem still exist.  

 

I have no more ideas how to resolve this issue.  any suggest to fix this, as this is really a serious problem.  no wireless is as good as owning a **bleep**ty piece of plastic and metal.

I have exactly the same issue, and uninstalling the IntelProSet driver does not help.

 

Here is my solution, and it seems work so far.

 

(1) Open access connection, and go to the global seeting. Unchecked the "automatically turn-off" option.

(2) Open device manager --> Network Adapters -> Your wireless adapter.

Right Click it and then open the properties --> Power managerment --> Uncheck the box that allows the computer to turn off the wireless.

 

It seems work now.

Re: Wireless turns off on my T410

After I uninstall the IntelProSet driver and adjust the power management option, my wireless still turns off in the middle of work.  But this time, I can turn it back on after "change adapter setting". 

Hope Lenovo can solve the problem.

Re: Wireless turns off on my T410

I have a similar issue with my Wireless Connection.

 

I have the T410 with 11b/g/n Wireless LAN Mini-PCI Express Adapter II and Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter.  The issue is whenever I put my laptop to sleep for a long period of time, the WLAN light doesn't show and can't connect to internet.

 

Under Device Manager, I discovered that both 11b/g/n Wireless LAN Mini-PCI Express Adapter II and Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter are missing from Network Adapters category and instead, I see a Network Controller with a question mark besides it.

 

The only way I can re-enable the WiFi is by restarting.  Anyone have this issue?
