x201 wireless always suddenly turn off and can not turn on again.

I have a x201 cto using 64bits Win 7. The wireless adapter is intel advanced-N 6200. However, I found my wireless always turn off suddenly and I can not turn it on anymore (even using Fn+F5) until reboot. Does anyone have same experience? Please tell me what's the problem. Many thanks

Yes, i have the same issue.

 

Though it suffices if you deactivate and activate your WLAN adapter @ networkcenter, you don't need to reboot.

 

This happened to me a couple of times as well.

I disabled Multi-Core in BIOS so i don't have regular lags.
I always keep energy saving settings to "Maximum Performance" so i don't have regular contrast issues.
I deinstalled ThinkAdvantage Access Connections so i don't have random WLAN Adapter "power offs".

Re: x201 wireless always suddenly turn off and can not turn on again.

I just got the X201T yesterday and have the same issue. It varies when it turns off (usually between 10 min. and 1 hour). Did this fix your problem?

 

Dumb question- how do you deinstall Access Connections? After doing this, what is used to make your connection?

 

Thanks

Re: x201 wireless always suddenly turn off and can not turn on again.

should be something like this:

 

start -> systemcontrol -> programs and functions (or features?) -> lenovo advanced connections or whatever ... double click on it to deinstall the software.

 

intel proset wireless tools will manage it then.

So, are some of you saying that the problem is caused by AccessConnections?

Re: x201 wireless always suddenly turn off and can not turn on again.

go into your control panel -> system properties -> device manager -> under your wireless card select property. 

 

Then make sure you select the following properties.

 

-untick windows device swithoff for power saving

-Power output to maximum

-Roaming aggressiveness to low.
