Intel WiFi Link 5100 network card - cannot detect wireless networks
I have a HP Pavilion dv7-1270us. My wireless card is an Intel WiFi Link 5100.
Running Windows Vista 64 bit, Ubuntu Linux, Linux Mint and Fedora Linux (various versions, all), the wireless works fine. My desktop computers to work with wireless cards to connect to the network work very well, and all computers (except mine) to connect to my home network very well; which means that it is not a problem with wireless networks, or with my network card. I try to manually connect to the network, but it can't find it. Diagnosis requires that the card is disabled, and that I should turn it on via the switch on my laptop running: fact.
During the installation of Windows 7 64 bit, I cannot see wireless networks (and therefore unable to connect). Re-formated and reinstalled again, check the wireless connectivity between each batch of Windows Update, but it has never worked.
I downloaded the latest drivers from Intel, via Microsoft Compatibility Center (version 15.2.0 driver).
There is no system restore option because he has never worked as a first step, except in all other OS, I got on the computer. Microsoft Compatibility says the map is compatible, then Device Manager shows no problems. The network adapter is active via switch on my laptop.
Happy that you guessed it sorted!
I find that my Intel 5100 AGN wireless network card does not work as well as he used to. I tried everything... even the drivers are perfectly up-to-date. But I keep losing the connection to my wireless router, even if the strength of connection between 3 and 4 bars. I find that I rarely make me fall if I have 5 bars. But if it drops to 3, I get periodically fall any wireless network that I use.
I want to replace this card by something better, but of course compatible with the HP dv5 (my specific model is dv5t-1000). Any recommendations?"If you keep an open mind, life will give you more opportunities."
What I meant by my statement about you have the best of the cards available for your laptop is that, Yes, I'm sure that the Intel 5300 is an improvement on the 5100, but the problem is that you can not install the 5300 in your notebook.
The Intel 5300 is not supported (only the numbers of cards/coins listed in the service manual can be installed) and your laptop wouldn't start until you have removed the card.
You can try another card in the manual, if you wish.
However, you are limited to the:
4322 Broadcom 802.11a/b/g/n WLAN module
Broadcom BCM4312 802. 11 b / module g WLAN (not a N Wireless card)
I guess you can use an external USB adapter, but I would like to get one with an external antenna connected to him, because I would have to believe that installing wire of 3 antenna in your address must provide superior reception on a simple USB wireless adapter with an internal antenna as its single antenna.
The antennas go all the way to the top of your screen.
Tinker you with advanced network adapter settings? They can be found by clicking on the card in the Device Manager, click the Advanced tab. Take note of where the parameters are now so if something is buggy, you can change their return.
Here is a guide to the advanced settings that you have and the recommended settings for them.
Anyone know if it is possible to upgrade your Lenovo R500 Intel WiFi Link 5100 wifi to Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260.

A reference that is inside the laptop: /

Welcome to the forum!
You need a modded BIOS to be able to use this card in R500. Stock BIOS will not allow the machine start with him.
I have a strange problem:
I have two HP ProBook s 4710 here in front of me. The two "seems" to have the same hardware inside (I don't see any difference on the stickers in the back).
I have install both of them with the same USB with Windows 7N 64-bit.
After the installation is complete (no additional driver installed).
the first bluetooth ProBook has
the second bluetooth ProBook has NO!
I checked the BIOS, every two active a bluetooth settings on both.
WLAN works on both.
On the first s I can also install the bluetooth drivers latest, on the second, I can't. Always the message occurred ("no device was detected. Make sure that... »).
Device Manager indicates, the two ProBooks Intel WiFi - Link 5100 AGN, the first s also Bluetooth-device listed, the second of not.
What the hell is going on here?
It is very strange because the HP Wireless Assistant software is registered directly on the support page and driver 4710 under the solutions section.
If this is the case, try the latest HP Connection Manager software which does the same thing the software assistant wireless.
Here's the theory behind your dilemma (except radio BT died).
This laptop once had the connection manager (since the software assistant Wireless does not) installed, and you can use this software to individually disable bluetooth or devices rather than using the wireless button wireless.
I guess that for example, turn off the stereo bluetooth with the connection manager to save a small amount of battery power, which increases the time before having to recharge the battery. But you can still use the wireless.
The hardware button turns both off the coast.
The big problem is...
If none of these devices are turned off by the wireless assistant or the connection manager software and that you reinstall the operating system or to update or other, wireless or bluetooth devices do not appear in the Manager of devices as if they are dead or don't exist.
And what makes this more puzzled, is that if you check the BIOS, you will see that they are present and active!
The only way to make them work again, is to turn them on by using the Deputy Director or the wireless connection software.
This is why it is absolutely essential to ensure that these devices have been turned on before you reinstall the operating system.
For those people that upgrading to W10, none of these programs work on W10, so if the BT has been disabled, the user must return to W7, activate the bluetooth, uninstall the connection manager or the wireless assistant software, reboot, ensure that the device is always on and then upgrade to W10.
Here is the link to the software of the support page for your laptop connection manager...
If this doesn't work or the other, I suspect that the BT module does not work (all hardware failures).
KB 915597 Def 184.108.40.206 updated - immediate problem of connection to the network; Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN is present, "working properly", but "there is no network to connect to."
My "update journal" indicates that this definition has been installed at 05:47 (Saturday 111/21), the same moment where pages failed to load and the small icon of net showed no link. (I had fortunately been web surfing until - filled bars.)
This is an update "cannot be uninstalled." I did a restore of the system to the previous Thursday, and then to the previous week, without change in condition. . I powered completely off and on again several times, without success.
There is a note on the update for http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=52261 - who takes me to a page with a bunch of stuff on the installation of a BizTalk adapter. (snippet below included) This is way beyond my ability to understand... I DON'T know how to edit the registry, but I don't know what to change, if this ' even common sense.
The update could have messed with the IP addresses?
I tried net diagnostics ("no network to connect to"); I tried to add a new network - the 'check' the devices window just sits there...
(Yes, my other devices connected wireless - works perfectly.) The computer has not been moved from its site)
(This is a piece of the message I get from the url above)
"You can use the BizTalk for MSMQ adapter and adapter BizTalk Message Queuing on the same computer. However, given that these two adapters use the same port, you must add an IP address to your computer as BizTalk adapt for MSMQ can use. »
 I bought the Dell in August as 64-bit extensible and Dell sent me a Win7 disc...
 indeed, McAfee came with the machine as a trial version...
 I think I might start by reinstalling the Win7 update...
A1. The Dell computer came with Vista 64-bit SP1 edition? [Yes/No]
A2. Your current McAfee application is supported in Windows 7 64 bit? [Yes/No]
If the free trial version of McAfee is always installed, when the free trial period expire?
If you have purchased McAfee application, did you do before the expiration of the free trial period? [Yes/No]
You never downloaded & run a utility named McAfee Consumer Product Removal Tool? [Yes/No]
A3. Please do not confuse the upgrade your version of Windows with 'update your computer' (e.g. Windows Update), especially in these forums.
If you've upgraded to Win7 64-bit, you can't "start over by reinstalling the Win7 [upgrade]." If you want to reinstall Windows, you need to reinstall Vista SP1, and then reapply the upgrade to Win7.

Recently, I have problems with my wifi connection.
I don't know why, but now the connection is erratic, when my connection was in the recent past 30Mbps is now 1, 10 or 20 I'm talking about 1 feet near the router.
I have the latest version of the 220.127.116.11 driver and cannot find a solution.
I think the change of the card with a new one as the Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6230.
Don't you know it is compatible?
Thanks in advance.
As much as I know there is no information on the compatibility between the Wlan card and laptop computer.
So you have to test yourself
But if the BIOS recognizes this Wlan key correctly, then it shouldn't be a problem to use this
According to the Wlan card specifications, this card allows connectivity to 2.4 GHz to access the old 802. 11 b / g networks and 5 GHz for higher speeds and greater capacity of the network.
However, I m the U400 laptop owner and my WiFi works correctly.
But I ve disabled all features for the Wlan that allows using the card with the best performance of energy saving. You can disable this in win 7 power management.
the WiFi has been disabled by the Device Manager, and I can't activate it
When I get in the Device Manager, one! sign was shown next to Intel(r) WiFi Link 5100 AGN, and I click Properties, the device status displays the message below:
"This device cannot start. (Code 10)
Click on 'Search for solutions' to send data about this device to Microsoft and to see if there is a solution available. »
When I click on "Find solutions", it displays 'could not load driver software' and no solution appears
I tried the function "update driver" and still no idea to him.
not the product. My dv7 is VQ971PA #AB5. Model no. dv7-2124TX is
You have a few options in my opinion please try these steps can help you solve your problem.
(1) unplug the battery adaptor & then press on & press and hold the power button for laptop for 30 seconds then switch on and check if the wireless led lights.
(2) go to Device Manager then uninstall the drivers wireless network card and restart the device and check if the light is on.
(3) try to do a system restore to the date where unit was working fine.
(4) Please update the Bios driver & wireless from the HP website.
(5) click on start search type Recovery Manager, and then click on it once select Yes on user access control, and then select I need immediate help and then select driver and select request recovery driver wireless and install it and then restart the device.
(6) If you are comfortable with reinstalling the wireless card that will be on the rear panel of your device you can try this steps as well.
If you still have the same question so you must call HP tech support and get the replacement of the part.
I recently lost network connection using the-built in Intel(r) WiFi Link 5100 AGN. Stupidly, it happened while I was still under a contract of Service, but because of the holidays, I turned it off and the contract expired in mid-December. I have a Studio 17/1745, I disconnected the internal WI - fi card and use an N of D-Link USB and I now have a WI - fi connection. Should I buy a new internal WiFi card and if so than that.
Places to look to see if your connection is activated
What program anti-virus and firewall are you using? I see virus program lead to problems of connections.
My computer screen suddenly went black this evening - the monitor was still, the fans were still humming, but it was totally insensitive.
I forced a stop, and when I rebooted the computer, my wireless icon has been x'd out. My computer cannot detect wireless networks (there are a half-dozen or more in my building). I tried a good stop and restart, but the problem was still there.
The Network Diagnostics tool told me to check the router, so I did--but all other devices in the House are connected very well. I thought it would be a malware, so I ran a MalwareBytes scan, which turned up nothing. Then I reinstalled the drivers from the card WLAN - no luck there.
System Restore has not solved the problem. ipconfig says "media state: disconnected ' for my WIFI adapter, but I don't know how to fix this. In the devices, the Broadcom WLAN card Manager, he says "this device is functioning correctly.
I work from home, so it is important that I can access my wireless. Help, please!
I imagine the inconvenience that you are experiencing.
1. What is the brand and model of the computer network adapter?
2. This error message with him modeling icon?
3. do you have a code error message when you try to connect to the internet?
Here are some steps you can follow to resolve the problem:
Check if the network adapter is enabled, if not, please go ahead and enable the network adapter. Please follow the steps:
a. open network connections by clicking the Start button, then Control Panel. In the search box, type adapterand then, under center network and sharing, click view network connections.
b. right click on the network card and do one of the following:
-To disable the network adapter, click disable. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
-To enable the network adapter, click Activate. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

Problem solved. Of wire antennas was not of all attached to the card and the other it has established relationships by chance. It took me 3/4 of an hour to turn off the battery, remove the keyboard, attach wires to the NIC (quite difficult due to lack of space) and put it all together. Then everything worked fine.
Thanks for the help, forum!
I have a HDX18t, running Vista.
I have two things on course, that can be linked to another.
First of all is a problem with the wireless assistant. The wireless on the keyboard area light is always red/orange. It will not change to blue when you press. Wireless Assistant does NOT open when I tell him. Now, I had this problem in the past and was able to remedy somehow after research on the internet. After much searching this time, I can't understand what I did or where I found the solution.
Now, here's the other thing that happens. When I run the Diagnostics Windows network, one of the messages is "NIC"Intel(r) WiFi Link 5100 AGN"experiencing driver or hardware related issues.» It is a new motherboard, which I really hope has nothing to do with it. I hope that the Wireless Assistant holds the key...
It won't let me connect to internet to even try to fix or something. I know that everything is fine with my wireless network, because I have another laptop which works very well with the wireless netowork.
Well, we discovered that 'someone' has put the WLAN module in the spot of TV tuner! We changed it and now the blue light comes on, and we are able to get online! Thanks a lot for your help! I'm sorry, we didn't know about this before, but you said that it must be related material! You were right!
I bought a T135D early January.
Everything was happy until one day my laptop decides it cannot detect wireless networks, and even less to connect to one.
I don't think the T135 came with a manual switch, while in the BIOS it says it's on.
The graph with the antenna and 4 bars charge is no longer at startup, or the light that lights up on the front of my laptop. It's frustrating to have this kind of problem so early in the game with the T135D.
Any help would be appreciated.
The wireless network must be activated by pressing the FN + F8 key combination.
Have you tried that?
If not, please check it
Of course, you must make sure that the WLan card driver is always up to date.

I have a W500 with Win 7 x 64. I have the Intel wifi link 5300 AGN wireless card and drivers Intel, 126.96.36.199
In devices, Advanced tab, Manager it shows these settings for 802.11n properties. But at the bottom of the list, the wireless Mode, it shows 802.11a/b/g. There is no mode N. Is that this card capable of the speeds Wireless N? Thank you for your help.
"N" is not a specific mode that you set on the wireless card, options must be various mixtures of A, B and G listed.
802. 11b and 802.11 G are both in the 2.4 Ghz range, where everything and his brother uses including microwave ovens, cordless phones, etc. It is therefore very noisy, but common. 802.11 G is the version high speed 802. 11B; If anything the frequency wireless 'channel' only supports 802. 11B, everything about this channel is limited to the 802. 11B.
A is in the range 5.0 Ghz and 802. 11A is the * ONLY * thing; It is also a much less common standard, you need wireless routers that support, etc. If you can use it, do.
802.11n is actually one 'upgrade' to others, allowing the channel bonding multiple and very wide channels, which increase a LOT of bandwidth.
But for example on both my T61p and W530 my "Wireless Mode" options are: a, b, g, b/g, a / g, a/b/g. I have another '802.11n Mode' option to enabled/disabled in the tab advanced on my wireless card.
I get the "dysfunctional" message that the WIFI link 5100 AGN has a driver problem... I am running Windows 7... Troubleshooting DIFFICULTY IT has failed. Could someone enlighten me also as to how it affects me? I didn't notice anything in particular up to now.
Thank you very, very much... I visited the two Intel and Dell... ran a diagnostic on Dell... then downloaded 'detector and installer for drivers' who came through good but later... much later said he finally was able to download this driver but can not install it.
I tried several ways to download the driver from the website, but nothing is done and finally did what I probably would have done FIRST... a system restore to before that happened... but I thought that I better try to "fix" or "Reinstall" the driver anyway then came to the Community Council.
Well, the final result is because the restaurant is back to before the problem, but I still don't know what happened to do in the first place.
I have been a user of X61T (tablet) for over 2 years now and have never had problems of WiFi connection, either. I've upgraded to Windows 7 last year and things have only improved.
Today, however, after the uninstall of a program called "Connectify" that basically turns your laptop into a WiFi hotspot, my wireless Radio JUST doesn't work! My wireless Radio switch (it's at the front) is on (I pushed to the right). Until yesterday, it was working great. I even used my wireless network to create a hotspot WiFi using Coonectify. I also removed from Connectify because it did not work. And then I just uninstall Connectify because I don't see an interest in the creation of a hotspot, when I have a wireless router at home. I restarted my PC and her Viola - wireless RADIO WAS DEAD! I do not see the Green LED for WiFi on the far left will blink more. Gone!
Went to Device Manager, and I see no problem with the device of 4695 Intel WiFi Link driver. Again, I uninstalled and downloaded the newest one. STILL DOES NOT!
I checked the records to see if I can find all the entries of Connectify which may cause the problem, but Nada! Nothing there too! I feel fairly pessimistic because I got a new wireless router yesterday NETGEAR N-150 and even not 24 hours later, I'm back using the ETHERNET cable.
I would really appreciate if someone can help me here! Thank you.
Re-installed the device driver and the problem disappeared!
PS, I hope that my post was in the less entertaining... I feel that sheepish now!
