4.Check that wireless radio should turn ON and wireless profile should get connected after a few seconds

5.Verify that both the Wirless and ethernet profiles should be connected at the same time in Access connections

Development Remarks:

This is working as designed.

The meaning of checkbox "Disable this wireless radio when switching to a different location" is that turn off WLAN radio during profile switch from WLAN to any other profile. So, only during the profile swicthing the radio

will be turned off.

  • Both ethernet and wireless profile should be connected at the same time in this scenario even if the "Disable this wireless radio when switching to a different location" option is selected in the profile.

Known Limitations

Restriction

1. Even "Allow all users of this system to create and apply loation profiles" Global settings option check box is checked, limited user account can not modify or create the setting for TCP/IP settings or security settings of local driver share, firewall settings due to Widnows security protection. Such setting is used with Windows default settings. Default is not checked.

2. Global settings can be only modified by the user when the logon privilege is administrator privilege.

3. The global settings option "Disable Adhoc connection type option in wireless LAN profiles" is not applicable, if the user create the profile using WIndows wireless LAN property window.

4. In W7 , as soon as we create the W7 WLAN profile, W7 will trigger to connect it automatically and there is no way to supress this (CMVC # 82939)

5. Atheros WiFi API does not have a capability of correct return information of wireless connection mode. When Atheros WiFi card is installed wireless mode is not possible to obtain, therefore Auto mode is always displayed alternatively (CMVC # 96988)

6. If user select "Use this profile to connect during Windows log on" profile will be applied during windows logon if user does logoff and logon, the profile with this option checked will not be applied. User need to restart to see this profile getting applied.(CMVC #104926) - UR2382

7. Since OS connect the second profile AC switch to the second profile OS connect to second profile because it could not find the first AP after suspend resume.

Information

1. When "Allow all users of this system to create and apply loation profiles" check box is checked, it allows user to create the location profiles and enables location switching regardless of the windows logon privilege (administrator or limited users).

2. Wireless profiles will be listed in the upper part of the profile list and the Ethernet profiles will be displayed at the lower part of the location profile list on "Automatic switching profile priority window". Due to the faster speed, the Ethernet profiles have higher priority than the wireless profiles.

3. Static IP address wireless profile will be listed in automtic location switching, as per the new design. However, static IP address ethernet profile will not be listed in automatic location switching.

4. ThinkPad 11b/g/n Wireless LAN Mini-PCI Express Adapter II has 1x2 antennas - 1 antenna for transmitter (Tx) and 2 antennas for receiver (Rx), and the maximum theoretical speed is 150Mbps (Tx) / 300Mbps (Rx) in the 802.11n mode. However, the current Realtek driver displays Tx speed as design. So it displays 150Mbps in the 802.11n mode even though the Rx speed is 300Mbps.

Solution : Display the Rx speed, instead of the Tx speed in the Realtek WLAN driver.
