Hi prakashdj,

 

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

I’m sorry to hear that the Laptop is connecting to the wireless network very slowly and not working as expected, re-installing the exact wireless driver will resolve this issue, below is the link to enter the downloads page and install exact Wireless driver accordingly, please click on "Select Product" then in "QUICK PATH" enter the model no. as B490 select the exact model.

 

Hope this helps!!!

 

Do post us back if the issue still persists.

 

Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Thank you for your quick reply. Will you please further guide by answering my following questions? 

 

1) Do I need to uninstall the current driver? if yes then from where to un install?

2) I have opened the link, but what should I select between " Networking LAN Ethernet  OR Networking Wireless LAN?

3) How I can know that which Driver is currently Installed in my Laptop?

4) I do not find name of "" Broadcom Wireless LAN Adapter"" in Device Manager under Network Adapter while it is appearing " Networking Wireless LAN under Link you have send me.

You are replying to a very old thread and as such not many forum travelers will see it.

We would need to know the model of notebook you are using, and if you installed drivers from Lenovo Support site for your specific notebook.

If you did, I would advise to check the Device Manager for yellow and red marks, as well as any Unknown Devices that may be present.

Cheers.
