X201 Wireless WAN Status indicator is always on (this laptop has no 3G option)

2010-12-11, 4:29 AM

Recently received my new laptop, X201, Win 7 Pro 32bits. Since I boot it up for the first time, I noticed this curious status LED with the antenna shape which was turned on constantly. Today poking at the technical manual I see it is the "Wireless WAN Status Indicator".

 

 

I bought this machine with no wireless WAN / 3G option. Also, Wireless WAN does not show up as an option when pressing Fn-F5. Definitely this machine has no Wireless WAN.

 

So why is this indicator lighted up all the time? burning battery... Anybody else seeing the same? Anyway I can turn this LED off for good?

 

Tips welcome. Thanks

Bump ;)

looks like nobody has noticed this issue? wondering if anyone with an X201 *without* wireless-WAN could confirm what they see...
