wifi link 5100 in X200 shows disconnected

2011-03-06, 21:12 PM

My X200 stop connecting with my wifi network.  The troubleshooting in the hardward tool, it says  "the wireless adaptor is disabled or uninstalled".  I have checked and bluetooth is working fine.

Hi and welcome to the forum!

Try the following:-

-Make sure that the hardware switch on the left is turned on (although I guess it already is since your Bluetooth is working).

-Press Fn-F5 -> Radio on the wifi.

-Go in the BIOS -> Config -> Network -> make sure internal wireless is turned on.

-Reinstall the wifi driver:- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-70476

-If you use Access Connections, then uninstall it.

Keep us updated.
