X40 Wireless Connection Fails @ "Applying Wireless Settings"

2009-05-09, 21:40 PM
Love my X40!!!  Was doing fine... Then it stopped connecting to my wireless router. Other laptop, a R51e, connects no problem.

I'm able to turn it on and see available wireless routers in the ThinkVantage Access Connections display.

I select my secure router and it attempts to connect, I get a progress bar in a pop-up window, but quickly stops at "Applying wireless settings". Same thing for another nearby open wireless router.

Current Driver: Intel Pro/wireless LAN 210 3B Mini PCI Adapter - Intel - 7/13/2006 - Ver.

Any comments or suggestions greatly appreciated! Bruce

Hi bcmurray,


You could try un-installing Access Connections and just using the Windows wireless tools to scan for wireless networks and connect to yours. Unless you're connecting to multiple *wired* networks, Access Connections just adds unnecessary complexity.
