[X230] Wifi led is not working

Hi there,

 

I've just purchased a X230 from a friend. I had not noticed the moment I took it, but the wifi LED is not working on my laptop.

The wifi is working well but not the led. My X230 is working under Debian/GNU Linux, but it does not work with Windows too.

 

I have tried to install a WWAN module from a X220 and got the Unauthorized network card error. Maybe something went wrong at that moment I don't know. I have just updated the BIOS to the 2.62 version but no change.

 

Any idea ?

Re: [X230] Wifi led is not working

Please notice that x230's wireless network status LED indicator is combined to one which is different from older ThinkPads.

 

There's only one indicator looks like a WIFI icon for all wireless communications - WLAN/WWAN/Bluetooth/WiMAX, which means any one of them is on, the indicator is on, and all of them are shutdown, the indicator becomes off. So, if you are familiar with older ThinkPads, you may be confused.

Does the power light come on? If no, it might be a motherboard fuse. If yes, it might be the little LED board (inside the screen assembly).

Good day.

 

Is this an X230T or the X230 clamshell laptop?

 

Regards.
