Lenovo X61T: (Intel WiFi Link 4695AGN) wireless adapter doesn't work!

Hey guys,.

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!

  • NetGear wireless adapter doesn't work is not in Windows 7

    I bought a netgear WG111GE adapter (also known as WG111V3) and has received assurances that it would work under Windows 7. To do this, but only randomly, most of the time I don't receive any connetcion but every now and then he seems to come to life on its own and detects my wireless network. I can't find advice on Microsoft or Netgear sites. Does anyone else have this card in Windows 7 and it works for them?

  • Satellite A660 - Broadcom internal wireless adapter does not work

    Hi all

    My first post to this forum - I have a new laptop of Toshiba Satellite A660 - only had for about 4 weeks and it turns out be a disaster for me...

    Firstly - I spend weeks getting everything on and configured as I want - then the hard drive begins to die...

    I just returned it service center Toshiba and NOW wifi has stopped working...
    Internal broadcom wireless adapter doesn't work - but according to windows and built-in Diagnostics it works...

    HOWEVER - when I try to use wireless with the built-in adapter may not detect all wireless networks...

    I then plug in my adapter netgear usb wireless backup and I can pick up and connect both of my wireless home networks...
    I am moving abroad in a few weeks and need to know that my laptop will work/be reliable and not have any problems-if anyone can help me with this, it would be much appreciated.

  • 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!

  • HP ProBook s 4710: Bluetooth missing on HP ProBook 4710 s (Windows 7 64-bit) - Intel WiFi - Link 5100 AGN


    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).

  • W500 Intel wifi Link 5300 AGN - No N?

    I have a W500 with Win 7 x 64. I have the Intel wifi link 5300 AGN wireless card and drivers Intel,

    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 install win7 in my fujitsu siemens AMILO Li 1718 model system, all the drivers are installed but I have problem with my wireless, wireless is not see the amything all available wireless driver is installed courrently can someone help me solve this problem

    Hi Amy,

    It seems that your wireless adapter does not work.

    There is no Windows 7 drivers for your model. You can check this link for simple information.


    I suggest you to visit the above link and download Vista drivers for your wireless card. Install them in compatibility mode.

    Refer to this link: make sure to run older programs in this version of Windows.


    If the problem persists, I suggest you contact Fujitsu support:


    I hope this helps.

  • HP dv6-6c10us: HP dv6-6c10us Broadcom 802.11n wireless adapter does not work after windows 10 installed

    I have a laptop HP dv6-6c10us with a Broadcom 802.11n wireless adapter.  It worked fine on Win 7.  When I upgraded to win 10, it has stopped working.  The driver has not been updated since 06/02/13.

    Until the driver is updated by Broadcom or HP, this computer is now a desktop computer.

    Any suggestions on how to get the adapter wireless on Windows 10?

    I recommend you to go back and do a system restore to a point before started to install the automatic updates, and where worked the wireless.

    Then download this tool that stops updates to install automatically.


    Hide all of them and then install one by one until you find the one that is to destroy the wireless connection.

    When you have found the culprit just hide it again and it will not be installed.

    You can create a system restore point each time you install an update.

    Tedious, but you should get where you want to be.

  • Satellite Pro L40 - wireless adapter does not work - Vista

    I recently had some problems with my laptop.
    A couple of weeks, I put in a disc of OpenSuse.
    It's not stable anything, but locked me out of my original Vista operating system.

    I reinstallled Vista Home Basic, but there are a few problems.
    Mainly, my wireless adapter does not work.

    When I flip the button to turn it on nothing happens and it is not recognized in Windows.
    I installed Atheros Driver, but still nothing happens, light is not yet.

    Any advice?


    First check the device-> network adapters area manager
    You see the WLan card? Or the unknown device appears?

    If there is an unknown device, then the WLan driver has not been installed correctly or you tried to install a driver badly these two options are possible.

    Remember that your wireless network card? Maybe it was a Realtek WLan card?

    If it's a Realtek WLan card, try the WLan driver from the Realtek website and look for 802.11 g (RTL8187B) chip or you will simply check the page of the European driver Toshiba too the Realtek WLan driver also appeared on the Toshiba page

  • Wireless card doesn't work on HP G5370uk

    I have a pc HP G5370uk and recently tried the preview of windows 8. Deciding that I didn't like it, I reinstalled my windows 7 64 bit operating system.

    Everything is back to where it was with the exception of the wireless adapter. It worked fine before and during windows 8 try, but now, the only way I can connect to the internet is via an ethernet cable. There is no signal indicator showing the taskbar.

    I checked in Device Manager and it says I have a REALTEK PCIe GBE FAMILY CONTROLLER under network adapters.

    In the other devices section, it's showing the NETWORK CONTROLLER, which shows a yellow exclamation point. I tried to date by a right click and update driver, but it says that it cannot find the driver. He also says the same thing when I connected to the internet via ethernet.

    I also downloaded the relevant drivers from the HP website and installed, but it doesn't help.

    I hope someone can help.

    Paul, you're an absolute star mate. Worked very well.

    Thank you very much.

  • System/Intel WIFi Link Wireless problems

    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!
