I know this has been discussed numerous times in the past, but I'm hoping someone can help since I have been unable to fix it and it is really frustrating. A week ago on my brand new T60 (200772U with 3945abg), without knowing any better, I did a system update and it updated my Intel driver to 10.1.1.3. Now my Access Connections will not work and I can't use the Fn-F5 key ('cannot power on wireless radio...update driver').
I have reviewed some of the posts on this: 1
and I have tried the following:
- removed AC and Intel Proset wireless (using Add/Remove and also Your Uninstaller 2006)
- rebooted, cancelled windows found new hardware, then reinstalled Intel Proset using the setup.exe with no luck
- used the vbs script after uninstall of intel proset also with no luck
- looked for LIBEAY32.DLL but it is not in the windows path, and the path had intel at the top of the list
- also followed mj's
advice with the ACPI and hotkey install and this also did not work, although I just reinstalled the the hotkey utility
and Im not sure if this is the same.
When I follow Riddil's advice
about the wireless supplicant (Open Device Manager, and from the menu bar choose the option for "View" -> "Show Hidden devices"...). Now I DO NOT see AEGIS listed here. I am wondering if this is part of my problem? I have removed the intel proset wireless using setup.exe to remove, rebooted then installed using setup.exe and still no AEGIS. I am running out of options and Lenovo support hasn't been too helpful.
Other clues - windows wireless works fine, but Fn-F5 doesn't and AC when installed thinks the wireless is turned off. PC doctor for the wireless card gives an internal error on wireless signal strength test and network link test, TCP/IP comm test fails. As I mentioned AC and Fn-F5 worked fine before a System Update updated the wireless driver.
Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.
PS I love the laptop otherwise. Not happy with Lenovo Canada's support. The first time I called they tried to send me the vbs script and it did not go though (apparently blocked by their web server). The next time I called they said they couldn't send this file out and the only option for me was to reinstall Windows
