Intel WiFi/WiMAX 5150: HOTKEY doesn't work without Access Connections



Our company has several T410i 2522-P38 notebooks with Intel 5150 WiFi/WiMAX cards, all still running XP. Recently I had to reinstall OS on one machine. There was a minor problem that Lenovo support site download page for this machine offers Intel WiMAX 6205 instead of 5150, but I have driver package stored.


This is not first time I face such problem, so I tried to solve it in usual way: uninstalled and reinstalled Hotkey package and drivers (Power Management driver and WiFi), tried several different versions of drivers and Hotkey - all to no success. Whatever I was doing, only BT was seen in Fn+F5.

FinallyI ended up reverse-engineering Hotkey, and got quite unexpected result: it simply doesn't know WiFi driver present on the notebook. Hotkey package (namely, TpFnF5.exe file which creates Fn+F5 window) has a hard-coded list of known adpater Hardware IDs. Intel WiFi Link 5150 present on the notebook has ID VEN_8086&DEV_423D&SUBSYS_13168086, while closest match in the list was VEN_8086&DEV_423D&SUBSYS_13118086. As an experiment, I've patched TpFnF5.exe to replace "13118086" with "13168086", and voila - WiFi appears in Fn+F5, and can be switched on and off!

Ok, thereason is found, but how all other identical machines work?! I checked another notebook, and found the difference: it had Access Connections installed, while the troubled machine had only Hotkey but not AC. It turns out that Access Connections has it's own executable for Fn+F5 dialog, AcFnF5.exe. When you press Fn+F5 with AC installed,

Lenovo Computer Won't Connect to the Internet After Sleep Mode



Windows 7 may fail to connect to the Internet after being in sleep mode for any number of reasons. The issue could be with the computer's hardware, the operating system or the router that connects your computer to the modem and the Internet. In most cases, the steps required to fix your computer will require an internet connection, although you can do some without. If you're using a wireless connection, make sure you try connecting with a cable as well. In many cases, a wired connection will work when a wireless connection won't.


Instructions

1.     ConfigureYour Network Adapters

Expand the Start Menu and type "Device Manager" in to the Start Search. Select "Network Adapters."
Right click on "Local Area Connection" and select "Properties."
Uncheck the box for "Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)."
Select "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" and click the Properties button below it. A new dialogue window will open.
Ensure that "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" are both selected. Click "OK."

Repeat for any other connections you have, such as wireless connections or secondary LAN connections.

2.     ConfigureWLAN Settings

Click on the Start Menu and select "Run." Type in "services" and press enter. This opens the Services window.
At the bottom of the list, find "WLAN AutoConfig" and right click on it. Select "Properties."
Set the Startup type to "Automatic" and click "Start." Press "OK" and close the Services window.

3.     Configure Your Router

Navigate to your router's setup page if you have one. In most cases, you can access the setup page by typing the following into your web browser: "//192.168.0.1" and pressing "Enter."
At the very top of your router's setup page should be a drop-down. Make sure it is set to "PPoE" and in the options below it "Keep Alive" is selected. Save any changes. For this setting to work, you may need to contact your ISP about setting your modem to accept the router's attempts to connect.

how to fix lenovo Endless Automatic Repair failures and restart loops

Repair failures and restart loops



you cannot disable Automatic Repair, but you can boot from installation media or Recovery Drive to fix errors and make Windows 8 or 8.1 and windows 10 usable again.

The behavior can also be an indicator that Windows 8/8.1/10 does not have required drivers for a disk controller. You can then enter BIOS/UEFI and set your disk controller mode (aka SATA mode, RAID mode) to Standard (aka Standard IDE or SATA, Legacy) instead of AHCI or RAID (take note of the original setting first!). This will often ensure that Windows knows which drivers to use for booting from the system drive.

In case you have multiple hard drives, power off your computer and remove its power cord. Then disconnect drive cables from all hard disks other than the one where Windows is installed. Plug the power cord back in and see if this helps Windows to boot properly.
