Z380 Ideapad: Unable to turn wifi on after Windows...

Q: Z380 Ideapad: Unable to turn wifi on after Windows...

Hi all Following a recent hard drive failure, I did a clean install of Windows 10 Enterprise (the ideapad originally came with a Windows 7 OEM licence). The wifi device, 'Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter' is present in the device manager and is reported as working. In the 'Network & Internet' settings dialog, if I turn wifi on, it is immediately turned off again. fn-F5 does nothing (the Lenovo Wireless Settings dialog is not displayed). Perhaps I need to (re-)install this somehow? The WLAN Auto Config service is running (automatic). Cisco AnyConnect is not installed; I am actually trying to install it over wifi by connecting to my company's VPN server (which is not accessible using a wired connection) so that I can Activate Windows 10. Any ideas on how I can turn wifi on? TIA :-)

A: Z380 Ideapad: Unable to turn wifi on after Windows...

fn-F6 has stopped working now too :-( so I cannot turn off the touchpad which is pretty annoying when your job requires a lot of typing. I have no idea why. I tried uninstalling the wifi adapter driver and installing the one from Lenovo's website, but I still cannot turn wifi on and fn-F5 still does not bring up the Wifi Settings dialog. Perhaps my laptop model just isn't supported under Windows 10?

Hi, I have a Gateway NV52L15 notebook and I am having problems with my WiFi access. I have Windows 8. My wireless networks are not showing up. When I troubleshoot the network adapter, I get a messAge that reads that my wireless capability is turned off. When I go to the Gateway Device fast lane, my WiFi is on. But when I look in networks it as shows WiFi off and I am unable to turn it on that way. When I go to wireless devices in pc settings, the toggle button for the wire device is grey, therefore I am unable to switch it on- It used to work.

Also, while in the Gateway Device fast lane, when I press the F3 key the airplane mode goes on...the WiFi goes off...by comes right back on. Please help...

Hello, This is the first time I am using this forum so I hope someone can please help me. I have had to clean install Windows 7 Home Premium  on my HP Pavilion G6-1234sa now I am unable to turn the Wifi adapter on. I have tried all the drivers listed on the HP website under the HP Pavilion G6-1234sa model and none of them work, I have tied to turn the Wifi adapter on with Fn + F12 and just pressing F12 alone but that doesn?t work either. I have gone through the entire forum to find a solution to the issue I am facing however none of the suggestions I tried worked. Please can someone guide me to the correct Wifi driver for this model and how I can turn the adapter on? These are the drivers I have tried for this model: Realtek RTL8188CE 802.11bgn Wireless LAN Driver (SP57049)Realtek RTL8188CE Wireless LAN Driver June 2011 (SP55040)Wifi Driver June 2012 (SP57538) Thank you so much for your help!!

A:Unable to turn on Wifi on HP Pavilion G6-1234sa

Hi: Please post the hardware ID for the wireless card, so I can figure out what driver you need for it. To find the hardware ID, go to the device manager and there should be a device listed as a Network Controller found under an Other Devices category. Click on the Network Controller device, and then click on the Details tab at the top of the Network Controller window. Now you will see a Property drop down list and it will be set on Device Description. Drop down on that list and select the 2nd item (Hardware ID's). Post the top string of characters that you see in the window.

Ok, I realize that Windows 10 is not supported on this laptop at the moment.  The question I have is WILL it eventually be supported?  Will there be new drivers for the intermittent wifi issue?   As of now, I'm using the last driver that Lenovo published for the Broadcom 802.11n.  It's version 6.30.223.256 I recall there was a similar issue when Windows went from 8 to 8.1 and then it was resolved.   Any help with keeping my wifi consistently connected would be greatly appreciated.  Are there any 3rd party drivers that might work?The rest of Windows 10 seems to be working well and I'd hate to roll back to 8.1 only to lose the new system if new drivers/solutions are going to be offered.

Just before the July 29 deadline I updated my Lenovo G40 IdeaPad to Win 10.
Everything appeared fine except that I couldn't get a WiFi link!
Eventually Lenovo "support" advised that there was no available WiFi driver for the G480.
Desperately, I had to uninstall Win 10 and revert to Win 8.1.
Can anyone advise on this. I find it somewhat unbelievable that there isn't a driver for the G480 model - it's not that old.
If anyone can help, I also need advice on how to update to Win 10 beyond the July 29th boundary
Thanks

Does the wifi adapter show up in Device Manager and show working? You have a physical switch to turn it on/off? Could be the switch.

Try uninstalling then re-installing the adapter.

Since I installed Windows 10 a few days ago, I haven't used my wifi, but now I find I can't turn it on. At the time of installation the f12 (wifi) key on my HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook was in the off position. Now it won't respond, and I can't turn wifi on any other way. The greyed-out box in the lower right hand corner won't respond (though the airplane mode will). When I'm in Settings: Network & Internet, the slider keeps going back to off. Can't turn it on under Network and Internet: Network Connections, and have already tried disabling and enabling the Wireless Network Connection. Under Manage Wi-Fi settings is some stuff about Wi-Fi Sense, which I'm not interested in -- hope this is not a ploy to make me use it!
Any ideas, aside from resetting the computer? Thanks!!!

A:Now that I've installed Windows 10, why can't I turn on my wifi?

I have the same problem. I assumed either my wifi had gone out(coincidence) or Windows 10 drivers... its also a HP Pavilion DV6 with amd chipset with Realtek wifi adapter. I have tried rolling back, updating drivers, uninstalling adapter reinstalling adapter...to no avail.

I have a HP pavilion dv6 laptop with a Intel(R) centrino(R) wireless 1030. After I upgraded to windows 10 from windows 7 it worked fine until after a few times of restart (after update). All of a sudden the wireless would not turn on. If i hit the wireless key, all it does is turn airplane mode on and off. When I go into the "Network and Internet" under settings, the switch that would turn wifi on would imediately turn flip off. I also noticed that the wifi Intel centino is "not connected". My Ethernet still works, but wifi does not. I have updated the drivers, and went into command prompt to enter in"reg delete HKCR\CLSID\{988248f3-a1ad-49bf-9170-676cbbc36ba3} /va /f" but it said "error: The system was unable to find the specified registry key or value."and "netcfg -v -u dni_dne"which showed"trying to uninstall dni_dne ...... dni_dne is not installed....done." how do i fix thix problem?

There is more than one way to do this but all require that you are using a certified Windows 7 driver which installs the Msoft Virtual WiFi adaptor which is used to set up the hosted wireless network.

The real problem with this is that if you already have a wireless connection then why would you need to create an Ad Hoc network in the first place?

I guess if you were somehow limited to a single connection it might come in handy, or if you needed to amplify the signal. You can't share through an Ethernet connection, it only works wireless to wireless.

You can set this up using the command prompt or you can install the connectify software which makes it easier for some. The links below explains the details about setting this up, take your pick, the last one is a download for a virtual router if that's what you wanted.

Hi, so I am running windows 7 x64 on a Y700 ideapad. I can't figure out how to turn off my wifi antenna. Looking at the keyboard I see the plane icon which normally means airplane mode. I want my wifi radio off and just use my lan line wire connection.  Regardless if I press FN+airplane, in the the black window that pops up it says "first switch on the wireless device" which makes no sense. My wifi radio is on currently all drivers are upto date.

A:Y700 - Turn off Wifi from Keyboard - Windows 7

I do not know why the airplane mode is saying to "first turn on the wireless device", but you can enable/disable the WiFi adapater by following the steps outlined in the link below.   Normally the Airplane mode is the on/off for the WiFi radio,m but it does not disable the card itself, while the steps linked below will. How to turn wireless connectivity on or off in Windows 7http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/how-to/network-wifi/how-to-turn-wireless-connectivity-on-or-off-in-window...  Good Luck,

Ad-Hoc requires that you restart the session each time.

I was using my laptop this morning, closed the lid, and went on to use the wifi from my phone (my wifi is weird in that I can only have one device connected at a time. I don't think this is relevant, but who knows?)When I went back to my laptop and opened the lid, it didn't start up from hybernation. I noticed that the battery light was blinking orange, so I plugged it in. Now the battery light comes on as white (which means charging but not critical battery life.)But when I push the power button, nothing at all happens. The power button usually glows when it's powering up, but now it doesn't do that. Nothing at all happens, except for the glowing white light aignifying charging when it's plugged in.Also, I notice that when it is plugged in, and when I press and hold the power for some time (10-20 seconds) the charging light will stop glowing for a bit. But beyond that, nothing happens: no fans, no sounds, nothing. This is one of the worst times for this to happen, since I have so much to do on my computer.Thanks in advance for reading this, and thank you for any help you can give.

And I do not think manually turning off the computer like that is not good.  What might be the problem and how can I fix it?Thanks,

I just brought the Ideapad the week before Halloween. My very first time buying Lenovo ends up a disaster and somehow I have lost confidence in this brand. After just one week of usage, it suddenly freeze and turn into a black screen, with the power light on, yet never able to turn on the screen no matter what buttons I press. Black screen can turn up in the middle of documents typing. When I'm out to toilet or kitchen, back to the seat, oh it's the forever black screen again.  I thought something wrong with the sleep mode, so I press NEVER so that the computer will never go to sleep mode. But it was useless. Scan for problems. No errors. Try doing updates. Nothing change. Last week I phoned the Lenovo hotline for help, the staff taught me to change the power setting. Nope, it didn't work as well.  At first it's just two to three times a day, and now it can happen like once or even twice an hour. The computer freeze all the time and have to go restart all the time, and it sometimes freeze in the start screen. And freeze when surfing on internet, not a black screen, yet not able to move the mouse. Freeze Freeze Freeze, everything is getting worse. What can I do? For reference, I have never installed games. All I have installed are Evernote, Chrome and LibreOffice.

Well, uhm... First of all: Greetings! This is my first... well, post here.I'm having a rather distressful issue with my ideapad 305. I've had it for roughly two months. Here's the situation:Early this Sunday morning, my laptop was working just fine. I turned it on for about half an hour and then shut it down to do some stuff. After returning home some hours later, I turned it back on and did some work - the usual stuff. I shut it down after a couple hours and then tucked it securely in my backpack and left to visit a friend.When I took my laptop out and set it up and turned it on, it emitted a faint "fffrt" sound after a few seconds of starting up and shut down. I was surprised and turned it back on. Everything went normal until it prompted me with the black screen and white text pointing out it had shut down oddly a few moments ago, and it gave me two options: Continue as normal or check and repair any damage. I, of course, went for the latter and then was prompted a minute later with the option to roll back in case any data was damage, losing some of my data in the process (installed software and such). Because I didn't want to risk losing anything, I went for "No" and the process cancelled itself and the laptop shut down.That's where the problem began: My laptop refuses to start up again.

I bought the lenovo ideapad 300s about 6 months ago, and in the first 1 month it cannot turn on. But after few days it came back normal, so i didn't go to service center. Few days ago there's problem in the monitor, when i used Ms.Word and press "enter" button the screen will be black for a moment, but it didn't happen for the other button. It also happen to the google chrome, when i opened the chrome tab the screen will be blank, but if i move to other program tab (even for mozilla, ie, word, etc) the screen come back to normal. It also very often to hang, the cursor cannot move and keyboard cannot typing, so i shut it down from power button. Once it turn on it would be blank screen (just like if it is off) for about 10 minutes and then there's notification like the picture i attach, but again i cannot scroll it up or down or press enter, so i can do nothing to the option. Until now it cannot be charged (i plugged in but the charging indicator lamp didn't turn on). So the laptop is out of battery and cannot turn on.  PS: my laptop is still in warranty period, but i bought it in Indonesia and now i'm in Taiwan, so i'm not sure about the warranty.

Hi, I have an IdeaPad S510p (not the touch model) and it seems my Wifi/BT mini PCI card is having issues when resuming from sleep (the OS doesn't matter, seen it on Windows and Linux). I thought about replacing this card but then I thought that since it's Mini PCI card, why not just upgrade this card with something that has both 2.4 and 5Ghz as well as the latest bluetooth? So, could someone recommend me a Mini PCI card which I can use with the S510p that has 2.4/5Ghz, a/b/g/n/ac and BT 4.0+ please? Thanks

Hi all,

I'm using a Dell E7240, did a fresh install of Windows 10.
I can pick up all sorts of WIFI connections and connect to them successfully.

However when I wanted to use my internal 3G modem it tells me that the "radio is off" and I can't enable this in settings?
Its greyed out, if I enable flight mode is greys out the WIFI and Bluetooth switches.
When I disable flight mode it allows me to turn WIFI and Bluetooth off/on but "radio" remains greyed out.

Checked BIOS settings, checked driver for the Mobile Broadband Card, disabled and enable the adapter.
Still does not want to allow me to enable the radio. I can manage the SIM PIN so I can change it or turn on or off.

It even shows me the network provider if I disable the SIM PIN, but the radio remains off!

Any ideas?

Thanks
Carl

So for the past two days I've had a weird problem with my laptop after it ran out of power.  It didn't want to connect online but that was fixed with command prompts and now the firewall is turned off. I've done a malwarebytes scan in safe mode with nothing found, tried doing some troubleshooting in the services and so on and so forth. 
 
Basically when I try to turn on the firewall it says that it needs to be done manually and then when you try to turn it on manually it comes up with error code 0x8007042c.  I've tried turning on the service but I get "Error 1608: The dependency service or group failed to start."

Hi, I am having a problem turning my Windows Firewall on. When I try through the Security Center it gives the error message 'Security Center can't turn on Windows Firewall'. If click the link to turn it on manually I get 'Windows cannot start the Windows Firewall service'. I'm not sure what the virus/malware is called that causes this. I have done a couple of scans using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and after removing a couple of suspect items it seems to be clear. Just leaves the Firewall issue.

Hi all, Close to desperate here  Last month I purchased a new laptop, a Lenovo ideapad 500 with Windows 10.I will mention before continuing that all my other devices are connected to the same router and are unaffected. My Windows 7 laptop also has no issues.After connecting to the internet, at random intervals my connection will drop to a snails pace. My WiFi icon in the taskbar still says I am connected but at a speed slower than 56k.I went to the Network & Sharing Center and clicked Diagnose on the active connection.Sure enough Windows claimed to have resolved the issue claiming the issue was "The default gateway is not available" and that resetting the wi-Fi adapter resolved the issue. Then after 5 minutes of normal internet use, the same will happen. Sometimes I can be online for 20 minutes between adapter resets, sometimes less.Having found similar threads on the Windows forum, and the official support doc (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/10741/windows-10-fix-network-connection-issues) I can confirm that I have tried the following:* I successfully updated the network adaptor driver* I reset the TCP/IP stack* I released the IP address* I renewed the IP address* I flush and reset the DNS client resolver cacheNone of these steps resolved the issue.As the laptop is new, I only have a handful of applications installed and none are ones I haven't used a million times before and all are extremely popular. i.e Adobe Illustrator, Chrome, Firefox etc.I hope ...

Hello, recently my computer showed a windows security alert in the right hand side of the task bar. It said that windows automatic update was turned off. I clicked onto the windows security center and it would not let me turn auto update on. A message will sometimes pop up that says something like: "Windows is unable to turn on automatic updates please go the the control panal, click on system and turn them on from there." This message does not appear every time. When I click control panel>Performance/Maintenance>system>auto update, I apply the change and hit OK but nothing happens after that.

I have recently ran the net cleanup tool trying to fix an issue (making a clean reinstall), but what I didn't expect would happen, did. I am now stuck where my windows 7 64 bit system does not have net framework 3.5 but thinks it has withing the "Turn off windows features" dialogue. I have attached a DISM log if it helps.

Things I've tried already:
- DLL Purgatory: Unable to Turn On .NET Framework 3.5.1 {PEN001}
- Installing .net framework 3.5 sp1 - received error message that I should remove it in turn off windows features.
- Running cleanups & all automated fixing methods I've found.
- SFC /Scannow - Did not help, returned error. Log attached.
- Installing .net framework 4 - It installs successfully, but does not fix any of my problems as the program im trying to run seems to need net framework 3.5 - The program is Catalyst Control Center, which I am trying to fix. The problem is that it won't, no matter what I do, display any dialogues. It is running in the system tray and all, but won't display. I did manage to get one (yes just one) .Net framework crash with it, so I started fixing it, and instead, ruined it and made my case even worse.

Now I am asking for professional help because no matter what I do I seem to ruin it.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,
I have an issue, I cannot open/run firewall or defender. There was some kind of virus or something on my computer. I was able to get rid of it using the windows program Microsoft Tech helped me with, but now I am unable to turn on the firewall. I am getting
error code 0x8007042c. Also defender says it is on, but I can not update.
I have tried to recover to and earlier time, but it wont do that either
I also tried to run the registry editor, and again I get an error, it says windows cannot find 'regedit.

I installed Windows 7 on my PC.

I set in the Power Options to turn off my display after 5 minute of inactivity. Unfortunately the system does not turn off the display, even if screensaver starts regularly (I selected blank screensaver included in Win7).

I yesterday updated my GPU driver (for another different problem) and I have latest driver for ACPI and monitor.

Any idea on the reason why my Windows is not able to turn off the display?

Thanks in advance.

A:Windows 7 unable to turn off the display on idle

Easiest things first.
Try to reset it to never turn off and then hit apply.
A reboot may not hurt.
Then turn it back on and see if it helps.

Hello all, I recently bought my Lenovo Ideapad 500s and I am experiencing wifi problems. The wifi would frequently disconnect and say that my network is limited. I would usually disconnect and reconnect and that solves my problem. I am wondering if there is a way to fix this wifi problem instead of continueously reconnecting. If you need any further information, please contact me.  Edit- Does anyone know a way to remove the pop-up for whenever I use capslock? Thanks.

Hello, I'm having some wifi issues. In the past few weeks I've only been able to use the internet on my laptop when connected via ethernet, despite having used the same wireless, router, laptop, etc perfectly fine for years!
 
When I first start up my laptop, I can see the list of my available connections. I press connect for my usual home router and then it will say "Windows was unable to connect to blahblahblah". And then the list will have a red cross and claim no connections are available. 
 
If I press troubleshoot problem, Windows Network Diagnostics says to "investigate router or access point issues", which involves turning the device off (done this several times). When I select "check to see if problem is fixed", it thinks for a bit then says "Windows cannot resolve your wireless connectivity issue".
 
Please can you help?  

A:Windows unable to connect to Wifi

Welcome to BC. !
 
Have you Reset the router ?....this usually involves inserting the end of a paperclip into a tiny hole located on the router itself......google the name of the router and it will show you where that hole is.
The word Reset should be written directly above/beside the hole.
 
To do this, press and hold the Reset button for 10 seconds. NOTE: Resetting your router to its default factory settings will also reset your router's password. The router's default password is “admin” as for the username, just leave the field blank.

Hello

I recently had problems with folder view settings that keep resetting to some other setting and the desktop auto-arranging the icons on its own. The culprit is likely Trojan.Zaccess, which was removed by Malwarebytes. I've also made the necessary registry changes or deletions as indicated by what I found online about making the folder view settings remember my customized configurations. The following registry directories were involved in correcting the situation:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\BagMRU
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\Bags

The first time happened around Jul 8 and then again today Jul 22. The first time around I was successful in keeping the folder setting intact. The second time around, I needed to do a restore point from Jul 20. However after reboot, McAfee's real time scanning is turned off and keeps switching off after manually turning it on. The Windows Security Alerts is also indicating that my anti-virus software is turned off.

I was told that there may be lingering problems that Malwarebytes was not able to remove. McAfee full scan also didn't find anything else. I have the following DDS log below and attached the attach.txt log from DDS as well as the ark.txt from GMER. He... Read more

Hi,

I am unable to turn on windows security centre service and the firewall on my McAfee keeps switching off. I have Malware Anti-malware (PRO) but a virus still got through. I ran a scan on McAfee, Super Anti-Spyware and Malware and malware found the following trojan msimg32.dll (Trojan.FakeAlert.RRE) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.Turned off the computer but still had the same problem with the secuity centre and McAfee Fire wall. The computer just switched off as well.

Can you please advise what I need to do to enable the Security Centre Service. I have clicked on services but there is no Secutity Centre showing, even after Malware deleting the trojan.

Thanks in anticipation for any assistance that you can provide.
