New X300, XP installed, radio disabled after to change that!

Hi there,


got the X300 and after replacing Vista with XP the problem came up that my wireless connection is always after rebooting turned off! It's no problem to turn it on, but it's my job to configure that and it's no good state like this.

I've updated to the latest intel 4965AGN driver and also got that Intel ProSet Tool. Hardware is also turned to wireless. ThinkpadAdvantage Access connection is also good.

The exactly process is that at the startup the intel proset now is opened automatically-->excellent connection and after 3 seconds it turns off! 


Anybody able to solve this problem?


thanks in advance

moritzbond, welcome to the forum,


it sounds as though you have a possible power management issue. If you are using Access Connections you will need to edit your profile(s) in the following way:

In AC profile editing select the "Settings for Wireless Connections", then click the Settings button at point "5" Advanced Configuration and choose in Power Saving "Low - Best Network Performance". It is also worth changing the power settings in the properties of the WLAN card through Device Manager.


Obviously with these settings there will be a reduction in battery life.


Hope this helps

I have ThinkPad X300.   I keep getting message "No networks detected. (Radio Off)."  How to I turn on the radio?


My little switch on back is on (green).  I have been the to ThinkVantage Access Connections/wireless setting/advanced settings/power save mode" and changed to LOW.


Still "radio off"


Most annoying of all, it has worked for years and then suddently stopped working.  I have not made changes.

Have you tried the key combination FN+F5?
