G580 wireless driver won't install

2014-04-14, 21:06 PM



I installed win 7 Ultiamte 32 bit onto my G580, but I cannot get the wireless driver to install. I ahve tried all three options on the Lenovo site: Atheros, Broadcom and Intel. None work. In fact, the Atheros driver simple instlals the LAN drivers, not WLan. I checked and it is the Wireless driver install, not LAN.


Wireless is activated in the BIOS. The network adapter also shows in the Device Manager, but doesn't identify as wireless. Pressing FN+F5 has no effect. I have updated the Chipset drivers with no fuss.


Does anyone have any idea why this is happening? The wireless worked perfectly fine with Windows 8.
