Sony :: Stopping Wireless Static In SZ Series (after Upgraded Wireless)

Mar 20, 2010

if you have an older SZ and want to add a 3rd wire, this will show you how and where to put it.

So a while back I upgraded the the 4965AGN in my SZ750N to an Intel 5200, since that day, B&G has been noisy. I managed to arrange the antenna connections in such a way as to minimize it to within tolerable limits. I also talked to some experts and they said it wasn't going to hurt anything if there was a bit of static so I left it.

I have known for a while that is was the white antenna lead that was causing the static. Unfortunately disconnecting it caused a drop in signal. While working on my Windows 7 guide I had a problem and had to open the laptop. While doing so I noticed the white lead and the antenna it attached to. I hadn't ever really noticed where it sat before. Sony couldn't have hardly chosen a worse place for it.

Sony decided the best place for it, and I assume this is because they merely upgraded the old 2 wire wireless to 3 by adding this, is almost under the power button. Right next to... a speaker. The lead runs along a Speaker wire and puts the antenna right next to it. See pics 1 & 2................

Sony :: VAIO Z-Series Wireless Connection Drops

Mar 27, 2009

I own a Z series Z540. After multiple Vista reinstalls and driver reinstalls, the wireless connection always drops. It would maintain connection for about 5 minutes, then it drops again. The wireless light stays on though.

I tried going on XP and ssee how that works out. Same problem, except that it drops when I MOVE it. And when it drops, the wireless light turns off, and when I move it back into a certain position again, the wireless light goes back on, and the wireless is back.

However, when I am on vista, the connection just drops for no reason, even without touching it, every 5 minutes. The light does stay on, though.

Apple :: Wireless Mouse - Occasionally Loses Its Wireless Connection To The Computer

Jul 24, 2009

I think something similar has been posted here before. In essence, I find that when I use my VX Revolution (or is it MX? Whichever one is the mobile version), the mouse occasionally loses its wireless connection to the computer, and so I have to click multiple times to get it to register.

This is annoying enough for me to consider getting a wired mouse, but I want to know if I get something like an MX518 if I'm still going to run into the disconnect/lag issue.

In other words, is it a wireless issue or a Logitech/PC/Mac conflict issue? I experienced both with and without the Logitech software installed. The software is currently installed.

HP/Compaq :: DV5-1155ee- Wireless Led Suddenly Orange Although Wireless Is Enabled

Jul 15, 2009

Windows Vista Ultimate SP2 (64-Bit) (problem is also there with Windows 7)

I sometimes try to connect to a network, then the wireless led suddenly orange although Wireless is Enabled. My friend who has an XP system can connect to that network in the cafe just fine so does everybody else, but on my system, it says connecting, then the icon turns orange as if there was no wirelesss card installed.

I am using the Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN v12.2.0.11 Driver which was installed through Windows Update along with HP Wireless Assistant v3.50.2.1

Now I have an orange icon for wireless, although wireless is enabled in both device manager and through the touch key.

the icon will turn blue if I restart and wireless access will be restored, but I will lose it again if I try to connect to a wireless network.

Lenovo U/S Series :: No Wireless With Windows 8 On S205?

Nov 14, 2012

Installed Windows 8 x64 clean install.
- BIOS updated before win8 install.
- Win8 WIFI switch cannot be turned on.
Installed newest wifi driver for Win8
- WIFI switch doesn't turn on.
Installed Win8 Power Management.
- FN+F5 toggles Win8 flight mode only.
- Uninstalled driver and tested with Win7 driver - no better.
Uninstalled Win8 Power Management and installed Win7 Power Management
- FN+F5 only lists a switch for Bluetooth.
- No better for Win7 PW and Win8 wifi driver.
It appears that some people have had success using a particular method but unfortunately it was described quite badly and failed to work in my case.

Lenovo Z50-70 P/Y/Z Series :: Wireless - Hardware Radio Off

Sep 24, 2014

I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Z50-70 and since almost 2 days i'm seeing that my wireless connections are not working/appear. Till about 2 days ago all worked fine. It says 'hardware radio off', i looked on google but nothing come up yet, i tried to "Reset PROSet" but still, after the reset it's the same problem.  There isn't such a big problem, because i use an internet cable and all works fine, yet because it's a laptop i want to buy a router so there's the problem, i can buy it but won't work... as wireless. 
How can i fix that? How to turn hardware radio ON? Is there a button or a key combo?

Lenovo Y560 P/Y/Z Series :: Wireless Just Stopped Working

Jun 6, 2010

My wireless worked fine last night. Got up this morning, turned the computer on, and the wireless does not work. Here's what I've done so far:

* Using fn+F5 I've ensured the wireless is turned on.
* When I try to connect wirelessly I get "error 651 modem not working." But the wireless works with the other twocomputers in my house, and when I hook up directly to the modem/router (Motorola 3347 from Qwest) with anEthernet cable, the Y560 works fine. So I do not think the modem is the problem.
* Tried to "auto detect" driver update using the Lenovo support, but that was useless. It did not autodetect anything.
* From the Lenovo site, it looks like the wireless drivers for the Y560 are all from March, and I got the computer in lateMay, so I should have the latest drivers installed anyway.

Lenovo C/E/K/M/N/V Series :: N500 Keeps Losing Wireless Connection?

Oct 3, 2009

My Lenovo N500 has been connected to my house network for a while now, but recently has been dropping off.  It seems to last for 2-3 minutes before dropping and does not reconnect automatically.

My husband has a laptop on the same network and he does not experience the same problems, so this is not a router problem.

I have checked all the settings and nothing has changed since I was permanently connected.
This problem has only occurred in the last week or so and I really want to throw the machine out of the window at the moment.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Wireless Adapter Not Working On Y510p

Jul 30, 2014

I'm on a roll with my new y510p.  Last night I got the unit new from Lenovo outlet, and the battery wont' charge past 33% (covered in another post) and now the wireless adapter isn't working.
I can't connect or find any wireless networks, though I could last night.  And the windows networking troubleshooter can't find anything.  What's more, when I go to the command line and type 'ipconfig /all' nothing appears, no network adapters at all.  
I've rebooted several times and even tried the Intel wireless proset (believe that's what it's called) utility that comes with the laptop. It squawked on the hardware test-- something about not 'wireless hardware is not bound to transport driver'.

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y510p - Wireless Adapter Not Found

May 10, 2014

I am using ideapad y510p. My wifi worked perfectly yesterday evening. However today at morning I couldnt find any wifi networks. After some research I have discovered that there is not wifi adapter present in Network Adapters and also that there is no wifi adapter in device manager. However bluetooth works fine. I have tried reinstalling drivers (even clean install of everything that may have something with networking). But I still cant see any wifi adapter. LAN connection works just fine. I dont think this should be hardware related problem because as far as I know bluetooth and wifi adapters are both located on Intel Centrino N2230. So I think that if my wifi adapter would be broken than bluetooth wouldnt be working too. I have also tried using system restore point to last week (when everything was working perfectly) but it didnt work.
I have also downloaded latest drivers from intel website and when I run tests with theirs WiFi Software Utility (or whatever it is called) it says that there is no wifi adapter present so it fails even hardware test.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X300 Wireless Stopped Working

May 8, 2014

Sometimes the machine does not show any wireless networks and I have been able to solve it by turning on and off the hardware switch for wireless on the back of the machine.  This time I can not get the machine to find any wireless networks.  I am running XP.  The only think different that I noticed is that MS Security Essesntials has ended support for XP.

Jan 3, 2014

I have bought a y510p 755m SLI with intel 4700MQ and it's performance is great, but after 20min it just drops the speed from 3.3mbps to like 2kbps, I tried ALL drivers and none solved the problem (even the windows one). I have to turn airplane mode on and off in order to reconnect. If i disable wireless N it does not disconnect but I lose too much speed (around 1.2mbps) and I really don't want that.

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X200s Flacky Wireless Latch

Nov 6, 2008

My new X200s has a flacky wireless latch.
Sometimes windows gives the message that all wireless radios are now off. So as if I've switched the hardware switch. But I didn't touch anything.
I think it is hardware related because sometimes I can just yently touch the switch and windows will be telling me that the radios are on again. It is not so much of a problem, but it happens every few hours and fixing it would be nice.
I've removed the keyboard and the palmrest, but the cardbus (?) is still preventing me from having a closer look. Don't know if I can get any closer without removing the entire mainboard. Because that would be a bit too much.

Lenovo U/S Series :: U430 Touch - Limited Wireless Out Of The Box - Default Gateway Is Not Available

Dec 9, 2013

I just got a new Lenovo U430 touch. Major problem: I only get limited wireless. I should note that it hasn't connected wirelessly once. It does connect fine via LAN ( I kept the cables!). I tried calling Lenovo but they said it must be my router and I should contact my internet provider (which I don't understand since the internet provider has nothing to do with the router.)
The laptop does connect wireless for about 5 seconds (I once managed to open an email before the connection slipped). Then it shows the yellow exclamation point in front of the wireless icon on the right-bottom screen. If I troubleshoot, it fixes the default gateway. Repeat. Sometimes it says that the "default gateway is not available."
Things I have tried per other similar questions asked online: unistalled McAfee, including with the removal toolpower cylcing my router, laptop, and cable modemuninstalling the wireless driver and restarting the laptop  Some notes: the system came with Windows 8.1I have two other devices wirelessly connected to the same router with no problem. I'm sitting about 8 feet from the router.the only programs I've downloaded are Firefox and then finally Kaspersky (since I uninstalled McAfee) I'm pretty good with computers, but this seems beyond me. It's a new laptop and it should work, darn it!
