x201 qualcomm wireless wan poweron issue -- SOLVED

I WANT TO SHARE THIS BECASUE IT HAPPENED ME SEVERAL TIMES AND NEVER FOUND ANY SOLUTION ON THE NET

 

In my X201 with Windows 7 64 pro, sometimes the wireless wan radio card doesn't power on.

 

I mean, whatever you do (fn+F5, enable/disable in bios, reinstall driver, etc) it keeps powered off.

Also its LED keeps powered off (in meantime wifi and blutooth can be worked on/off)

 

The only solution I have found is to boot the pc with an Ubuntu USB  live disk, and click on "enable broadband connection", to make it active (you will note its led powered on)-

 

The magic is also that Ubuntu MUST be run from a live disk, if you install on the harddisk it wont be able to re-wake the wan card...

 

only after doing this the qualcomm wireless wan gets bak at being "actionble" also in windows 7.

 

hope it helps!
