X200 tablet wifi not working

2013-06-26, 6:26 AM



I got a problem with my x200 tablet wifi. I've been using it for approx. 2 years (bought used on ebay). All the time I had problems with connecting to any wireless network. I only connected to some (max. 10% of them) in administrative buildings and college (they have strong antenas). At home I use Tenda W311R+ router (802.11b/g/n) and still the same problem as almost everywhere else. I tried to change settings in access connections, windows wireless connections. Nothing worked for me. Finally I bought a new wireless card (Intel WIFI Link 5100, model: 512AN_MMW) just the same that the old one. It turned up not to be the lenovo original part (bought on ebay too) so I had do some procedure I found at google (taping one pin of new wifi card and putting it into WWAN card slot). Unfortunately it "worked" just the same way as the old one. I've also checked if both wires to from card to antenas are OK - they are. I don't now what to do next, hopeless sitiation. Does anyone of you have any suggestions?

Can you download something like InSSIDer and check the wifi profile using that software?
