Lenovo X120e Wireless Driver Download Install Update
The driver I'm using at the moment is the one found in this ppa: Here is another link to www. I finally fixed this problem by compiling and installing the latest drivers from Linux Wireless in Ubuntu One needs the header files for his kernel and the build-essentials package. I recommend also to run the script "driver-select" with the option rtlwifi before compiling because one doesn't need the other drivers and it reduces building time:.
I'm running the driver for two days now with excessive closing and opening the lid and didn't get any disconnects. I fixed it mostly with compile the driver by my own and install it. With this the driver kept awake. This reloads the driver for wifi. I also ping sometimes the router, this keeps my wifi connection stable. Up to now this gives me the best behaviour - no drop outs, no disconnects. This surely will have an efect on power consumption - we will see.
I'm using the build in drivers with kernel 3. For those wanting to do the same: This way the BIOS will not complain about unsuproted hardware. It is really simple to do its just 3 screws for the panel and one for the card, plus the antenna plugs. Though I recomend using a full lenght PCI express card as thats what the slot is made for I had to fix mine with tape, wich is a lot mare stable than it sounds. I did the same: I was also having the same issue.
I went through the process of compiling drivers from source, etc. But I still had the same problem. I would have access but it was extremely slow. I would have to release and reload the module it seems like every minutes to keep any usable connection. Now this was just annoying. So reading though more posts and testing multiple methods I finally found a solution that worked for me.
I did the following. I've been testing all night downloading files from my server without any notable reduced speed, or loss of connection. As stated before sometimes I have to release the module and reload.
But rarely only on boot. I am using kernel version 3. I also use opendns server's don't think it makes a difference too much, but I prefer to use them. I hope this helps anyone that was having the same problem. I know I was so close to going back to windows, but I had to try. I had exactly the same problem: Over the course of several days, I tried many solutions, both on the software and hardware side: Trial and error at its extreme.
Before any disconnection occurred, there's was serious packet loss issue. This was found by continuously running mtr in a dedicated window:. Running this mtr in one screen allowed me to quickly verify if any change I make, has an immediate effect on packet-loss. The ability to perform this quick experimentation was key to pin-point the culprit among so many possible variables.
In my case, it was the repeater aka "WiFi extender" in the hallway. As it turns out, n has the ability to integrate multiple weak signals bouncing off walls at slight delays to amplify the signal. In my case, I figured the repeater was introducing a too big delay causing almost exactly one in 3 packets to be received in error. As you can see from the large number of answers here, many people have a similar problem, but the reasons are different.
The key to any eventual solution may be simply the ability to quickly experiment and test hypotheses. A continuous mtr monitoring the packet-loss rate while changing parameters at the same time did it for me. I highly recommend this as a diagnostic approach. I do own a Xe too. I have switched my WLAN to g-mode only. Now my Wlan connection is quite stable working for about 1 hour without disconnect.
Maybe the switch between b-mode, g-mode and, n-mode is part of the problem. I have the same problem as before with the buildin driver of Precise Pangolin. What is working more stable than anything I tried with Oneiric is the driver from realtek's website. I'm using the latest version This version did not work well for me with Oneiric suspend did not work. With Precise it work's fine and the problems are mostly gone. From time to time once every two days maybe the wireless connection stops working as before, but not nearly as often as before.
I have the same issues with Xe. I have the problem that the function keys were swaped after standby and the wireless randomly disconnects. Then my mainboard was broken and I sent the notebook back to lenovo which replaced the mainboard. And after that everything worked fine. All my problems were gone! Until I reinstalled Kubuntu and all the problems are back.
Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. The wireless network adapter in use is this one: This problem occures with every driver I tried up to now. Especially the kernel driver Linux ThinkPad 3. Is there a way to get a more stable WLAN with this setup? Some more system information: Thomas 1, 1 10 I have exactly the same problem on a xe. With the ppa drivers its usable, but reception is bad even though it shows good signal strength and sometimes it losses connection for no reason Possible duplicate of askubuntu.
This seems to be much better now with A clean install from the OK, it is NOT better with Onw day everything is fine, the next day, the old problem is back again. I recommend also to run the script "driver-select" with the option rtlwifi before compiling because one doesn't need the other drivers and it reduces building time: Tobias Schula 1 3.
The is the linux-backports-modules-cw I'm giving it a try. I'm not able to download compat-wireless The problem could be caused by channel hopping and the new Linux kernel. I entered in terminal watch sudo iwlist wlan0 scan. One more thing I tried: Uli 3, 8 23 I tried the same thing with an Intel Centrino card without any success. Do you have the AMD or the Intel model? What version is your BIOS?
What didn't work for you? I posted my problem in the link above. The computer is on, the screen is black, the fan is turning, but nothing is happening I have an AMD model as well. Maybe I need to buy the instead?

I'm having an issue with sleep mode and hibernate mode. If I use either of them or allow my computer to automatically use them it freezes every time I come out of either mode. The computer will come out of sleep, it will come out of hibernate BUT I'm locked up at the desktop. The mouse pointer will not work via either my touch pad or my actual bluetooth mouse. The Windows key will not pop up the start menu, nothing. I have to hard restart to get it up and running again.
