A new 'recommended' update for my X1C6 arrived and now I'm not able to use my modem, it just displays 'no network' all the time.
Everything was fine with previous 184.108.40.206.
Wanted to drop this note so Lenovo is aware of this and also ask: how do I revert to 220.127.116.11 (I cannot find the download for this version, it always redirects me to 18.104.22.168)?

UPD: it seems that after BIOS update and reboot 22.214.171.124 works for me. not sure for how long though.
also wanted to mention another problem with those drivers (it was in 74 and still persists in 75): upon every cell connect/disconnect the software creates a new network profile in registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\Profiles
upon first connection, it creates a profile with name of my cell operator (I'll call it 'cell' next on), on second it also creates 'cell 1', on third 'cell 2' and this list is growing and growing.

Hi ThinkVasily, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!
My X1C6 has been working OK wiht 126.96.36.199 since it was published (AT&T in the US), so hopefully it will continue working for you!
As for the multiplying profiles, I see them too, but they are apparently not doing any harm.

I've actually posted a reply, but my post dissapeared.
again: filling user's registry (and thus RAM) with 10, 100, 1000, 10000, 100000... entries of never used data is evil and definitely a bug.
