Welcome to Reddit, the front page of the internet. Some days I have to fix the problem to conect to Wi-Fi at least 5 or 6 times. In reply to chiefmonk’s post on December 1, One of three reviews for the U on Amazon also indicates the same WiFi problem. Wifi signal is steady, but speeds drop drastically after walking a few feet.

The bad thing that I read about wifi problem when I already purchased laptop. System sucks when it comes to Wifi. While the device manager shows the network adapter installed and running, I am unable to turn on the wi-fi.

Did this solve your problem? The intel proset wirless tools, actually says that the “Wireless Hardware is enabled” but when it gets to the radio test it says “Hardware radio is off”. Your highest level of industry certification, or wigeless IT related job title held in the last 5 years.

This means that the antennae in the laptop are not sufficiently configured to achieve maximum reception.

Lenovo IdeaPad U410 Touch WiFi Wireless Card WCBN608AH

In reply to IshaanPuri’s post on December 1, This thread is locked. Lenovvo have the same question Can you do a restore to a date where you remember that it is working?


Lenovo also tell us that devices build before that date can be serviced. I see no visible hardware switch on the computer itself and this is very frustrating. I was able to find “modified” firmware images for both that removed the whitelist.

The U seems to have exceedingly short range, unable to find a connection where other devices have no problem. I signed up for the lawsuit but never got anything despite my laptop lejovo into the timeframe of laptops covered by the suit.

In your first post you wrote: Been trying to u41 the issue after Lenovo support tried to blame the router then I found this article and a few others. Under “Wifi”, slide the slider to “on” position.

Hi Aphects I would imagine something has gone wrong with the device driver for the wireles card.

Obviously your internal WiFi worked before, so it should work again, if you can get rid of the conflict between the 2 wireless paths. Now I know why.

Log in or sign up in seconds. My thinking is, if you didn’t use that remove routine, maybe your system still thinks that the USB wireless is being used, even though you took out the dongle. I believed him wirelesss looked good. Customers with U and U models manufactured prior to July 23 who have experienced lower than expected wireless performance should contact Lenovo support to schedule service.


Overall, this machine looks good, but performance sucks so badly!! I purchased a U with a July 30 build date.

Lenovo IdeaPad U/U WiFi Issues

All users with all cards and Lenovo has tried six different cards in the u are still reporting problems. Acer Aspire Switch I tried the same thing that fixed it last time, but It didnt fix it, instead now it says that the WIFI is off and that it should be turned on via Fn keys or hardware switch. Trusted user flair has been added as a means of verification that a user has a substantial knowledge of networking. Lenovo is committed to environmental leadership from operations lsnovo product design and recycling solutions.

Its worked well for me. I bought a U after usung a U for 18 months. This site in other languages x. oenovo

I had a trackpad issue and was able to successfully take the laptop apart and found the network card place, so I think I’ll be able to physically replace it myself.
