Without taping there will be bcm94318mpg linux linix but liux won’t work. Led doesn’t work after all. Otherwise, if you’re skilled enough, please try to find out why your LED doesn’t work bcm94318mpg linux contribute to this article. This does not make the wireless card work, but it may allow you to boot the computer normally. The complete instructions for this procedure are here. Taping over any Mini PCI-e pin is a delicate exercise in patience, the connectors are less than the width of most ball point pens.

Check if the wire is centered on the pad and try pulling it but not too hard to see if it bcm94318mpg linux. The notebook has to be running while you bc,94318mpg the tests so be extremely careful.

This page was last modified on 28 Julyat Please feel free to add systems if lunux have had personal success or failure. If necessary, the pin on the card can be taped over with film or painted bcm94318mpg linux with nail polish to block bcm94318mpg linux connection.

BIOS by cmuelasl updated using preinstalled Windows 7. Retrieved from ” https: Place one end of the wire on the masked pad and insert the card into the slot. If it comes out easily, pull the card out and repeat. According to the information found from the links above the authors suggest a bcm94318mpg linux in the network card memory ethtool -E ethX magic bcm94318mpg linux offset 0x8 value 0x Therefore, make sure you understood the problem described here and made all the measurements carefully.

Therefore, we have bcm94318mpg linux separate pin 13 of the card from the system board and connect ground to the system board side only. However, this doesn’t work on my Thinkpad X Finally, bcm94318mpg linux sure that the bcm94318mpg linux doesn’t touch anything else and doesn’t stand out too much, it must not touch the touchpad electronics when you put the palmrest back on.

Problem with unauthorized MiniPCI network card – ThinkWiki

This information has bcm94318mpg linux added by users. Therefore some newer WiFi cards use one of the signals originally meant for LEDs to implement the “radio kill” switch input.

As stated before, it is dangerous to mess with your BIOS, you can easily make your machine unbootable. Further modifications were needed to eliminate the error. Also, this procedure can render your card useless, bcm94318mpg linux that’s better than bricking your laptop.

The voltage between pin 13 and ground should measure about 2. Newer cards may no longer provide the necessary negative signal there to drive the LED.

The bcm94318mpg linux place is the left MiniPCI latch arm. You only need bcm94318mpg linux perform one of them. The second one is much simpler because it provides an already patched and compiled ipw driver required to do the job.

If an unsupported card is detected, the BIOS prints a message on the screen and stops the bcm94318mpg linux. Do this fix ONLY if you know exactly what you are doing and at your own risk! If your LED is not working, the problem could be the pin Bcm94318mpg linux you apply any fixes, be sure to check the voltage between pin 11 and ground can be found for example on the MiniPCI latch arms – it should give you about 3.

Bcm94318mpg linux all the voltages match, your LED is fixable.

The bcm94318mpg linux system can see this condition: This linus is for Atheros-based bcm94318mpg linux and HP notebooks, but it applies to Thinkpads as well. If you successfully attach it, you have to connect the other end to the ground.

This doesn’t happen with all unauthorized cards. This way you will know if this apply to your card and if it can be fixed this way. The WiFi card seems to be a HP one tip: A neighboring WWAN slot bcm94318mpg linux allowed to hold such a card.
