Are you sure your wifi is an intel one? most essential series are using broadcom wifi
check your wifi type from this link: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/product-and-parts/productConfiguration.page?

 I upgraded my G580 2169 to Windows 8 and had terrible trouble getting the wifi/bluetooth to work. I installed the driver 5.100.245.20 downloaded from Lenovo Support but it would not work at all. I went into the BIOS and reset to defaults and hey presto it began working! Strange really, as I had never been into the BIOS to alter anything. It may not work for everyone but must be worth a try eh?

I have exactly the same problem after a hard drive failure and have reinstalled Windows from scratch, twice, on a new drive. (windows 7 home premium 64 bit).

 

All Microsoft updates installed (in hope).

 

We have tried all the appropriately labelled drivers, although the one labelled as the wifi atheros one seems to be the wired ethernet port?

 

Apart from that tried all suggestions on this forum, & trawled Google a little.

 

Pretty gutted as machine still < 12 months old, but I need it for Uni & can't really afford to be without it if sent away for repair.  Lenovo were recommended too.  :-(

 

Slightly concerned that no one has aided you after 5 days as well, but fingers crossed we get some help.
