On Lenovo Laptops, we usually use the Fn + F5 buttons to enable the Wi-Fi wireless network adapter. However, in some cases, the wireless card feature becomes unusable due to system or hardware errors.

How to Activate WiFi Adapter in Lenovo Laptop

WiFi problems caused by operating system errors can usually be resolved by driver updates. If you have updated your wireless network card and are still experiencing the same problem, you will need to search for other solutions.

For Lenovo branded laptops, the WiFi card is disabled due to the bios battery usually being removed during computer cleaning. As a result, you may not be able to use your wireless card after computer maintenance.

When you reinstall the removed bios battery, you will see that the WiFi card is not activated. In order to enable a WiFi adapter in Lenovo PC, you must install the stable software of the manufacturer on your computer.

If the notebook manufacturer does not release Drivers that support the new operating system for older models, you should spend some time searching for compatible drivers over the Internet. To turn on Lenovo wireless card, you will need Lenovo’s Energy Management software.

How to Turn on Wireless Card on Lenovo Laptops

Lenovo Laptop owners using Windows 10, 8, 8.1, and Windows 7 operating systems need the Energy Management software to turn on the wireless feature.

To solve the wireless feature-off problem, you need to have the Lenovo Energy Management program installed. If you have installed the most up-to-date version of Lenovo Energy Management, the Fn + F5 buttons may not work on your computer. Or, you may not have the option to Enable Wi-Fi in the settings of the Energy Management program.

So, with the Lenovo Energy Management 6.0 version, you will need to solve this problem. The Lenovo Energy Management 6.0 program supports many older models of Lenovo branded computers.

    Hi there! I’ve followed your instructions twice. After I install the program and restart the computer I can’t get the program to open. When I try pressing FN + F5, all it does is dim the display’s brightnexx. My laptop is a Lenovo Legion Y530 (Model name: 81FV). I’m running Windows 10 Home. Please help!

      Hello Cesar!

      Download the Energy Management software for Lenovo Legion Y530 model here, then install it after removing the previous installation from the computer. Restart your computer and you can enable Wi-Fi by pressing the FN + F8 button.

      The solution method here is the method not related to the driver problem. If you have just installed the operating system, download and install the Wi-Fi driver here according to the model of your laptop (Legion Y530).

      After doing this, I would be glad if you inform me.

    Hi Tolga. I have a Lenovo Ideapad U450 Windows 10 which is showing as WIFI switched off, even though the little light is on stating it’s switched on. I’ve tried running diagnostics but that just says “switch wifi on”. I’ve tried everything to get this to work but nothing. Do you have a link to any Power Management software that I can try? Would be most appreciated.

    I have a Yoga 13 which suffer a small drop and wifi stopped working. Tried replacing the wifi module and no change. so something on the motherboard must have been jarred loose. don’t seem to see any ajar or loose.
    Will probably have to install a USB wifi dongle to replace the function.
