DETAILS
ATTENTION!! Please follow below information.
1. Please check Error and Warning message in Event Viewer before you start the test case and after you complete the test case, and report it to your team lead, then arrange to open defect, if needed.

2. Perform All Test in Battery Mode (Some of the test items need to perform in AC Mode, follow each Test Case).

3. All Test Activity should be performed with AMT Enabled as Default (applicable on vPro enabled systems).

4. Please check Usability / Cosmetic issues (correct sentence/appropriate display/etc.) and open defect, if needed.

OTHER DETAILS
EUT Quantity : Two systems 1. "Please check Error and Warning message in Event Viewer before you start the test case and after you complete the test case, and report it to your team lead."
2. "Perform All Test in Battery Mode (Some of the test items need to perform in AC Mode, follow each Test Case)"
(All Test Activity should be performed with AMT Enabled) Note :
1. Perform the test in User mode as well as Administrator mode
2. Please check the version of Access Connection to be used for each product. Access Connection may require specific version of device driver to be installed for the adapters to be tested.
3. Refer latest Access Connection Function specification for the feature support.

Perform Access Connection on Japanese OS for SIT for the final verification. Initial stages of testing can be performed on US version. While doing JP coverage, verify the japanese characters, error messages and help menu contents.

Access Connections applications may have other functions/GUI not mentioned in this test case. Please verify all the available functions and GUI that comes with the particular version of Access Connections. Any updation required to the test case, Please inform Lenovo Engineers.



Known Limitations/Restrictions/Information
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.
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.
