Wireless problem in G560

I have purchased G560 (core i3, 3Gb DDR3) and I reformatted the Win7 HP home with win 7 Professional.

 

I had taken backup of the drivers folder from the original setup. After installation of Win 7 Prof, I have reinstalled all the drivers. All except the wireless are working fine. The wireless connection is constantly showing as disabled. On enabling it, it shows a message " enabled" but the actually the connection is disabled.

 

I tried drivers from the Lenovo site but the result is same.

 

I have no clue as to what's happening. Anyone have any idea?

Re: Wireless problem in G560

switch the wireless button and activate the wireless & bluetooth by pressing fn + f5. by the way, make sure your function keys working, if not re--install power management.

 

if readycomm installed, remove the application and try again.

Re: Wireless problem in G560

I have tried as per the steps mentioned by you, but the status still remains the same. I have removed ReadyCOMM, the wireless switch is on, the status on pressing fn+f5 shows wireless is on, the wireless indicator on the machine is glowing but the wireless in network sharing is still showing as disabled.

 

Any other thing that needs to be done???

un-install drivers, restart your computer then install drivers again.

Re: Wireless problem in G560

I  have tried uninstalling the driver and reinstalling the drivers but still the card is disabled. I checked with Lenovo support and it seems that they have not released the driver for windows 7 professional. I wish to know drivers released for windows 7 home premium are they not compatible with Windows 7 professional??

To ensure, go to administrative tools, then services and look if you have enabled WLAN service.
