Help: XP driver for 3000 G410 wireless adapter

2008-09-08, 6:55 AM

Hi All,

 

My recently bought g410 came with Vistra (only) drivers CD, while I'm installing winXP instead. I downloaded drivers from Lenovo website and everything worked except the winXP driver for "wireless network adapter" (all 3 of them: Gemtek, 3xxx, & 4xxx), the adapter was simply not recognized.

 

When I look at g410 spec, it says something like "Wireless Network Type: InviLink 802.11BG", does it mean that it is another type of wireless network driver those available on Lenovo's site? If so, where can I get this driver? Can someone help, please?

 

Thanks,

fitro

Maybe it's the "InviLink" thing. Or you just have the same problem which i had with my brothers T23. Go here.

Hi,

 

Thanks for the link, I don't know if it's because the "InviLink" thing. My g410 won't even recognize the wireless adapter, as when I went to device manager, I had a "?" in front of the hardware,  not being recognize as anything. :(

 

Other suggestion?

Whenever you see a "?", that means, that something's not installed correctly. If you installed the WLAN driver, which you saw on the lenovo download page for your laptop and it doesn't work, uninstall it again and download that "InviLink" driver and install that.

 

By the way; can't you connect to the Internet via Ethernet Cable? That should work. If it does, start the "System Update" Software of Lenovo. The software will find all right drivers.

 

Hope, that you'll solve this problem soon.

Dear Silens,

 

Have tried to install the vista driver for Gemtek, and YES, the wireless thing is working now! Thanks for the feedback.

 

I notice that in the device manager, the device reads something like"Broadcom 802.11g" while from the specification, the wireless adapter should be 802.11bg (the letter "b" is missing from the description). I don't notice any performance issue though, however, would like to know if you have the same description as well?

 

Dear Rex,

 

I don't know how to start the system update software, do i need to download from any website?

 

Thanks,

fitro

Yes, I have the same description. Don't worry about it. As long as it doesnt have that Yellow Exclamation Mark error, you'll be fine.
