T60 & T61 wireless card not functioning

#1 Post by Stimov » Wed Apr 17, 2019 6:45 pm

Both wireless cards are not working, tried the driver page and got nothing. Tried both Windows and Linux and I got nothing. On Ubuntu it says "Hardware Switch Disabled" but it is enabled in bios. Any help is appreciated.

There is also a wifi-switch on the outside of the laptop, up front on the right.
Plus there is Fn-F5 in Windows.
Lovely day for a Guinness! (the Real Black Stuff). And pigs CAN fly!

Thanks for your help, unfortunately I think my wifi card is dead in both, I tried both of the things you told me and neither did anything. Although the switch was set to off, got my hopes up honestly, it didn't help. I'll find some new cards, until then wifi dongle.

If you are running Windows, look in Device Manager for the wifi card. If you are running Linux, try lspci.
