Lenovo B / G Series :: G570 - Settings To Control WiFi Connection?
Feb 4, 2012
I think when I set up this computer I selected that it always maintain the wifi connection. Normally this is fine, but if I am installing a program I may not want the computer to connect to the internet.
I recently clicked on the wifi icon in systray and right-clicked on my connection and selected "disconnect". It did, but it immediately reconnected. Where is the setting where I can control this?
I received my G570, and have had internet issues since. It can connect to my WiFi network, however after using the internet for a few minutes, it consistently gets the yellow "!" over the wifi icon in the task bar and says no internet connection and I loose my connection. I know it is an issue with THIS laptop since my old and decrepit HP laptop which sits next to it works perfectly fine using the same network, as well as my smartphone and room mate's devices.
I have downloaded the Lenovo update software and attempted to use it. I get a message saying something along the lines of no available packages, assuming that means everything is up to date in terms of drivers.
I have done some research with the terms "lenovo, g570, wifi, internet, problems, connection" and yield many pages, however none have seem to provide a solution that works for me.
My lenovo g570 laptop does not found network adapter for wifi and blue tooth it did not recognize the hardware part may be. because i install software for that so may time. few days back i used wifi as well as bluetooth in my lapi but for last two or three month i just used lan for internet connection and in between i changed my os which is win 7 ultimate to win 7 proff. I don't know what is the reason for that.
Have new z50 70 with continuing wifi connection problems.
- ethernet connection ok so just wifi problem -other pc's ok using this router (Thomson Gateway TG585v7) - updated driver and changed channel - no improvement - returned pc and tried replacement - same problem with regular dropped connection - tried pc on neighbours router and monitored connection - no problems
Still don't know whether it is a pc or router problem and am reluctant to buy a new router just to find out.
I just purchased the Ideapad S415 Touch. The wifi connection drops OFTEN. It still shows that it is connected, but there is no internet pages load, email stops working, etc. If I hit "disconnect" on the connection, then hit "connect" again, it works great . . . . for a few more minutes or an hour or whatever. I went into "properties" and changed the settings on roaming and power management per an article I found on this site. I think this may have worked a bit, but it's still happening.
I have an Ideapad Y510 that has Vista and I'm having a problem connecting to the internet. I have other computers running in the house (this one I'm now typing on) so my internet is working correctly just not on my laptop. The laptop was working and connecting but something happened and now it says that I have limited access to the internet.
I read that it may not be getting an IP address assigned to it. I called my internet provider and they ran through their troubleshooting steps but figured it was in the computer. I don't know if the driver has been corrupted. I got the software CD that came with it and tried to load it again but it didn't work (not sure if I did it correctly).
(There is another thread on this, but it relates to Windows 8. I am running Win 7 Pro 64 bit.)
I have a Thinkpad X1 Carbon type 3443-CTO. The Wi-Fi adapter -- never the stablest thing on earth -- is getting flakier and flakier. I am constantly having to reset or disable/re-enable it. The "connect automatically" settings for some of my existing Wi-Fi routers do not appear, so that I have to connect manually every time.
I have an ideapad z500 which I'm happy for, but it annoys me that when 'm at my college I can't properly connect to the wi-fi the school has. When I connect, I'm on for usually about half an hour, but then I get the "limited connection" yellow triangle and I have to deactivate the networkcard before I can get a normal connection.
Other times I simply just can't connect, it tries but it fails. When it does, I have to reboot the computer before it succeeds, and that's no good when you are working on a project. At home i have no problems, it works nicely.
Also, how to enable the WiDi on the z500.
My PC is running Win 8 with the Intel Centrino n2230, Intel 3rd. gen i7 (3632qm)
Basically, i recently purchased a Lenovo Ideapad U410 blue from Canada Computer & Electronic. Everything was good until recently, I am having trouble connect to my home network!! It was fine, but two days ago, it just frequently drop out from my home wifi( keep saying limited access, no internet connection, then identifying.....no network access)
The problem is, all other devices i got are fine! My other laptop, my phone, and my ipad are all good to connect to my home wifi!!! And what's more confusing is that, my U410 is OK to connect to other network like the hotspot I set up from my iphone(just trying), my frds' wifi......And what's even more bothering, is that it happened two days ago, and yesterday the problem just magically disappeared!! I used it surfing internet for the whole last night with my home wifi and no problem with it.
However, i woke up this morning, problem popped up again,, can't connect to internet! I mean, the signal is super good!!!! no problem with detecting network, even connecting, it just wont identify or whatever. Drivers all up to date! I mean is a brand new computer....
SO is it my laptop's problem, or my network adapter's problem , or is it my router's problem!!!
My Lenovo G570. Yesterday, it was working perfectly, I properly shut is down. I have set a BIOS pasword. Today, when I switch it on, I was unable to type the pasword becasu some keys were not working. However, I managed to loged in with On Screen Keyboard. After analysing it, I came to know that some keys on numpad includeing 0,2 and on the 2nd line(vertical numerical keys) 1,2,3,4,7,8,9,0 are not working. I tried to re-install the OS but I set a BIOS password containing one of the missing keys.
I've looked at the other threads and tried removing the battery while the laptop is off for 30-40 seconds but it doesn't run because it's not getting power from the charger at all.
The laptop is a couple years old and the hinges on both sides have been pried off (can provide pics) but I never had problems until now - I plug the charger in but it won't charge and even if I pop the battery out it STILL doesn't charge!
One night, I had to set the charger upright in order for it to charge. Today I had to set the bulky and heavy part of the charger higher above the laptop in order for it to charge. Now, how to get this thing to work because proping the charger upright or higher than the laptop isn't working anymore!
I've noticed a couple weeks ago when I was visiting my parents that the adapter emits a beeping sound - notice that I said the adapter NOT the laptop. If I unplug it the beeping sound fades. The beeping sound comes from the adapter and when I unplug the cord going from my laptop to the adapter you can hear the beeping sound fade away from the prongs that conect the adapter to the laptop (not the prongs that plug into the outlet).
Like I said before it doesn't matter if I've plugged it into an outlet with OR without the battery in it, the laptop does not receive any power from the adapter or recharges.
First my notebook specs Lenovo G570 (part number: 43345JU) i5-2410M 8GB RAM Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 WLAN dont know the make of bluetooth (mostly broadcomm) Came with Win7 Home premium x64
The Win7 that it came with also had lenovo energy management through which I could toggle the WLAN and bluetooth on and off. Since I never used the bluetooth, I turned it off via energy mgmt.
Also interestingly, when I was running Win7 I had it dual boot with Ubuntu. And if my Bluetooth was turned off via EM from win7... bluetooth wouldn't be recognised in ubuntu and there was no way of turning it back on... I had to boot back into win7 and turn it on via EM and boot back into ubuntu.
Recently I updated to Win8.1 but hadn't turned on the bluetooth before doing so. In Win8.1 the bluetooth device is not recognised anywhere..not in PC settings(metro UI), not even in device manager. I tried to install the energy management for 8.1 from the support site but it was extremely buggy and didnt find any option to turn on bluetooth. The old EM didnt install properly in comaptibilty mode.
In ubuntu now (dual boot with win8.1) its still the same. Bluetooth not regonised just as before.
I cannot go back to win7 now. There is no proper EM for win8.1. There is no option in BIOS regarding bluetooth. How do i turn on the bluetooth adapter?
My Lenovo G570 battery is stuck at 90%. It says plugged in, not charging. It just happened over night. Next day battery refuse to work.
In windows it says battery 90% and is not charging but battery has no charge at all. When I disconnet the A/C power laptop just shutdown immediately. As soon as I unplug the power laptop just shutdown as there is no charge in the battery.
I did reinstalled the Power management and also updated it. I all unplugged reboot in OS, restart, put battery back and boot into the OS back. Nothing seems to work.
I just installed Lenovo Energy Management in windows 8 before I was trying in windows 7. In the battery tab there are two options
Maximum battery Life Optimized battery Health. It is selected to "Optimized battery Health" and won't change regardless of power plan. I click on "Maximum battery Life" and when I open the app again it reset it to "Optimized battery Health".
Lenovo Solution Center say that battery life is GOOD. "Your battery is in good condition".
i have encounter a new problelm with my laptop(G570) that it does not intall my new printer driver which is hp deskjet 1510. it says that drivers does not exist for the machine. i dont understand what should i do , when the same printer i install in my desktop home pc its get intall. even i take technical assistance from the hp. they check and say that this the problem is with ur laptop.they say that ur laptop machine is not allowing the printer to intall driver. i dont understand what should do in this situation i tried so many(install and uninstall) times but same problem prisist.
I have read about many issues regarding Wifi connection (connection drops often without any reason, poor signal strength, too long time to establich connection...). My problem could sound similar, but it's rather different:
Although my wireless connection appears like Enabled in Win8, I cannot switch it on / connect. It appears like Not Connected (Wifi = Off). In fact, I cannot see any wifi network when the list of available networks used to be.
- I checked BIOS, and it's set as Enabled. - I updated BIOS to the last version. - I updated wireless wireless drivers to the last version - I modified the wireless configuration as it's especified in the long forum thread for Wifi issues
But nothing has been successfull. For some strange reason, I cannot switch the wifi device on.
I keep having issues waking up from sleep with my T440s. It WILL NOT connect to wifi and the wireless adapter under windows adapter settings disappears. Only thing that fixes this is a reboot. I have removed "allow windows to turn this device off" under wireless settings.
This is a brand new TP T440p and I installed a fresh copy of Windows 8.1 Pro on it (licenced). I've applied all Windows updates and installed all drivers/BIOS updates from Lenovo System Update.
The computer works fine, but when I put it to sleep and wake it back up, the external monitor is almost always flickering (there is a 1mm movement to left and right, line by line - I'll shoot a video, if the camera will be able to capture the movement, because it's very "fine"). Sometimes it stops after a few minutes, but most of the time I need to re-boot the computer.
Also, not always, but many times the WiFi connection is lost and I can't reconnect unless I reboot the computer.
With my Lenovo P500 IdeaPad I CAN connect via wifi but NOT with ethernet cable. It just stopped working one day. Windows 7 device manager no longer recognizes device. I assume I need to replace the ethernet card. True? If so, is this possible or is it part of the motherboard?
I have a problem which does not persist on another machine with windows 7.
Lenovo connects to the internet with this modem, but then after sometimes 5 minutes, sometimes after half an hour, the modem loses conncetion, although its dedicated application does not indicate lost connection.
I was wondering if the default Energy Management battery setting of 50% can be changed on the Lenovo V570. I keep the laptop plugged in almost all of the time, and the popup suggests using the setting that keeps the battery at 50% all the time. That's fine in terms of not over stressing the battery, but if I need to unplug the laptop, I'd rather have a fuller charge than only 50%. I'd read that ThinkPads can be set to 90% or other settings. Is that possible with the V570?
I had to uninstall my Motion Control Software for my U430 Touch software due to an error. I see it is not anywhere online, if it isn't too much trouble could Lenovo put the software up either here or on the drivers webpage?
The Broadband on my X1 Carbon (Gen 2) always fails to connect with an error message saying that "You're either out of service or SIM card not activated" while neither of these conditions are true. Oddly, SMS is working fine and I can both send and receive messages without problems.
What could be wrong? How can I diagnose and fix the issue?
Some more details:
- The ultra-book is a Type 20A7 which came with the SIM slot but no broadband modem. At that point Access Connections showed the Broadband option greyed out. I had to call support to find out why and that's when I learned there was no modem.
- Support told me to order part number 04X6038 which is a Sierra Wireless EM7355. After installing the latest driver, the Broadband option was now enabled but it still failed with the error message mentioned above.
- At the wireless store I told them it was not working and they gave me a new SIM card. This time I received a welcome SMS message. i tried sending to a few numbers and replying which works.
- The wireless provider took the IMEI number of the EM7355 and confirmed it was compatible which seems logical considering SMS is working.
I have an Ideapad Z580 with a 30mbps cable internet connection (running Win8.1). I've tested the cable modem with a number of laptops in my house, and the Ideapad is the only one that regularly times out on loading webpages.
What I've tried: 1. Updated Realtek Ethernet driver to newest version 2. Changed to Google Pub DNS servers (no difference from cable providers) 3. Changed power settings to High Performance (rather than balance or the battery setting) 4. Turned off IPV6 on the ethernet adapter
The problem seems to be random. Pages will load quickly and then suddenly they all time out (such as google and lenovo.com). When I ping both the url and the ip address they time out during these periods.
The problem is definitely with the laptop and not the cable connection as such. The modem does not need to be reset, as other laptops in the house load webpages normally.
I tried multiple different setting in BIOS, and am currently on
(1) Boot display device - Thinkpad LCD
(2) Graphics device - Discrete graphics
(3) OS detection for nVidia Optimus - Disabled
Shown in the screenshot is where things are wierd. With my Asus VG248HE connected via mDP to DP cable, the W530 detects the monitor, but will not allow me to enable it. When I click the white box to enable the monitor, it just thinks for a few seconds and does nothing. After the first time of thinking, it does not do anything when clicked.
I bought a y400 in feb 2013 and it worked perfectly. Then i faced some SSD issues and the system would hang and needed to force restart .I had to install Ubuntu to work.. I sent it back in feb'14 under warranty and they replaced motherboard ,SSD , HDD , re imaged ,etc . Now i got it back and everything seemed to be ok but was facing display driver issues (tried everything to fix this) and ended up disabling my graphic card to make the system work seamlessly .
Having read on internet somewhere that windows 8.1 may fix the dispaly driver issue , I upgraded to 8.1 from the windows store . After downloading the update I had to restart to install windows 8.1 and it was stuck at 49 % at setting up on lenovo logo screen for about 2 hrs and I had to force shutdown.
After starting up again as expected it crashed. Now I cannot Safeboot nor can I use OKR .
After the booting up its landing lenovo logo screen for a while then jumping to select language screen ENGLISH US -> Advanced Options -> cannot find startup settings (to safe boot) any option i select for example system restore it then asks me for windows 8 setup or windows 8 OS when i select any one of them it hangs (blue screen)
Same happens when i use OKR .It loads the files and then boots to the same language screen . Since Recovery image is stored on separate drive all I need to do is format the C drive but how can I do it ?
