WAN on windows 8.1 ? - x230 2325

I have installed a SIM card on my X230 2325 running on windows 8.1 - but I can't get any driver/program to work to actually enable my mobile broadband.


Which driver and program should be used in order for me to use this ? I can't get the listed drivers for windows 7 to work (which is said to be running on 8.1)


Anyone have a small tutorial on how to fix this ?

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!


To activate WWAN in your Lenovo ThinkPad X230, first you have to ensure that you have a WWAN card and WWAN antennas installed. WWAN upgradable models have the WWAN antennas installed from the factory these will be red and blue wires (the Wi-Fi are typically white, black and grey or just black and grey depending on model). If you have WWAN antennas installed from the factory, probably you need to purchase a compatible WWAN card and install it.


Go to Lenovo Support site, enter MTM number of your device in quick path and get the system specifications. If you find any difficulties, please share the MTM of your device.


Hope this helps!

Are you sure the wwan card (seems it has to be an Ericsson h5321gw or f5521 if your laptop is for the European market) is installed into your laptop?
