Having problems with your Lenovo ThinkPad SL500 Notebook ?

Wireless stops working and have to reboot

\015 Hi,\015\012\015\012I have a Lenovo Thinkpad that is running Vista with Intel Wireless Wifi Link 5100.\015\012\015\012The wireless will work just fine and then for no reason drop out. When I try to see what happens, the program becomes very sluggish. It says that I am connected with "limited connectivity".\015\012\015\012If I try search for available other networks, none of them show up. If I try to turn off the wireless, the program does not respond and turn it off. \015\012\015\012Finally, I just end up rebooting and everything is fine again (for an hour or two before this happens again).\015\012\015\012Any way to fix this? Is it the wireless program? Vista?\015\012\015\012Thanks!\015

Answers :

It sounds as though your wireless card is starting to go out due to heat. If you have another laptop or a friends laptop to see if they can connect ok without experiencing the same problem you will eliminate the router as the cause. But more than likely you will need to replace the wifi card.

Wireless Switch My laptop is a Presario2100 (not a 2100T). I have had it for just over three years. Naturally, 2 months after the warranty ran out, something stopped working on my computer. My wireless switch will not turn on. It probably isn't a card problem, because it will not even turn on enough to tell me whether or not it senses wireless networks. Instead, the switch itself seems to be broken because I push the button on the front right corner, and absolutely nothing happens. Is ther
