Known Limitations/Restrictions/Information

Known Limitation

1. With 8 OS, disable WLAN in Device Manager, click "Find Wireless networks" button in Access Connections Advanced GUI, WLAN will be enable automatically.

(Ref: ECR112840, ECR114484)

Restrictions

Information -1

1. ADHOC WEP passkey is converted to HEX value and can be used to connect to it.

Reference: ECR228263 W7:Adhoc WEP PW auto convert to HEX and connects both HEX/ASCII PW equivalent

Reason:

1) WEP authentication is obselete and no longer recommended by Microsoft.

2) Since WEP are a sequence of hexadecimal digits, it will auto convert to HEX after user input ASCII and since it is an Encryption Key it can"t decode back.

User Impact: Low. OOBE setting usually setup when sales sell to customer in the store which without SIM card.

Work Around: No workaround

2. Ad-hoc profile will still show connected after the connected client is disconnected in Broadcom and Qualcom wlan

Reference:ECR345795 [LG2.0 AMD] W7: Ad-hoc shows "Connected" after connected client is disconnected , Qualcom Atheros WLAN , R00AL03W

3. Realtek does not broadcast Adhoc profile after S3/S4

Reference: ECR215231 W7:RTK:Adhoc profile not broadcasting after resume S3/S4. (Please refer to attachment RTK.jpg)

Reason: Realtek design

Installation / Configuration
Win 8*1
Win 7
To setup:

0. INF install the Driver under W8 and create a WZC connection. (This also works in AC environment)

1. Copy the attached wat-roam.vbs under "wat" folder.

2. Run wat-roam.vbs.

3. A log named roam-hhmm.csv will be created under the "wat" folder, while continuous ping is run.

4. Current RSSI, Ping ( 0 means PASS ), MAC Adr ( of the AP to which the client is associated ), Link Speed, and the Time are logged.

Attachements:

1. VBS Tool (Latest Version)

2. Log created using the initial version tool where disconnection/roaming captured.

3. Log created using the latest version tool where link speed fluctuation captured.

How to interpret the results :

In the .csv file,

If the ping column contains

value 0 - then it is successful.

other than 0 - like 11010 etc.. means FAIL

Observe the speed column. This gives the actual connection speed. If this speed is below 1Mbps/0, problem should be reported.

Also if the speed is changing rapidly (for ex. from 54Mbps to 1Mbps), report this as problem.

Attachment "wat-roam.vbs", "Roam-1606.csv" and "Roam-1911.csv" are available below under Attached files section

Known Limitations/Restrictions/Information

Known Limitation

1. With 8 OS, disable WLAN in Device Manager, click "Find Wireless networks" button in Access Connections Advanced GUI, WLAN will be enable automatically.

(Ref: ECR112840, ECR114484)

Restrictions

Information -1

1. ADHOC WEP passkey is converted to HEX value and can be used to connect to it.

Reference: ECR228263 W7:Adhoc WEP PW auto convert to HEX and connects both HEX/ASCII PW equivalent

Reason:

1) WEP authentication is obselete and no longer recommended by Microsoft.

2) Since WEP are a sequence of hexadecimal digits, it will auto convert to HEX after user input ASCII and since it is an Encryption Key it can"t decode back.

User Impact: Low. OOBE setting usually setup when sales sell to customer in the store which without SIM card.

Work Around: No workaround

2. Ad-hoc profile will still show connected after the connected client is disconnected in Broadcom and Qualcom wlan

Reference:ECR345795 [LG2.0 AMD] W7: Ad-hoc shows "Connected" after connected client is disconnected , Qualcom Atheros WLAN , R00AL03W

3. Realtek does not broadcast Adhoc profile after S3/S4

Reference: ECR215231 W7:RTK:Adhoc profile not broadcasting after resume S3/S4. (Please refer to attachment RTK.jpg)

Reason: Realtek design

0. INF install the Driver under W8 and create a WZC connection. (This also works in AC environment)

1. Copy the attached wat-roam.vbs under "wat" folder.

2. Run wat-roam.vbs.

3. A log named roam-hhmm.csv will be created under the "wat" folder, while continuous ping is run.

4. Current RSSI, Ping ( 0 means PASS ), MAC Adr ( of the AP to which the client is associated ), Link Speed, and the Time are logged.

Attachements:

1. VBS Tool (Latest Version)

2. Log created using the initial version tool where disconnection/roaming captured.

3. Log created using the latest version tool where link speed fluctuation captured.

How to interpret the results :

In the .csv file,

If the ping column contains

value 0 - then it is successful.

other than 0 - like 11010 etc.. means FAIL

Observe the speed column. This gives the actual connection speed. If this speed is below 1Mbps/0, problem should be reported.

Also if the speed is changing rapidly (for ex. from 54Mbps to 1Mbps), report this as problem.

Attachment "wat-roam.vbs", "Roam-1606.csv" and "Roam-1911.csv" are available below under Attached files section

Note : Any error generated related to the above scripts, inform the test case owner or Lenovo engineers
