Lenovo G570 Wireless network adapter issue

hi - am having the issue with my g570(4334) and windows 7 laptop. I removed both atheros drivers(the funny thing is i didnt notice what was those drivers), now struggling to connect to wireless though managed to get LAN driver installed. Tried installing intel wifi link driver and wimax is not helping me and it shows there is no suitable driver version of wireless network adapter compatible, i searched for wireless network adapter suitable for my laptop in lenovo support but no use, cudnt find it there. Now i came across this, should i go ahead and install Atheros AR9285 Wireless network adapter and try again? also let me know which driver should i install to support this adapter?

Also let me know if there is a link between Ethernet adapter already installed in my laptop to this adapter(i have AR8151/8158 Family Gigabit/PCI Fast ethernet controller)? It would be of great help if u can assist as am cracking my head past two days to fix this with no proper response from lenovo call center also!

Thanks in Advance.

Re: Lenovo G570 Wireless network adapter issue

Hi naveen2184,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

This AR8151/8158 Family Gigabit/PCI Fast ethernet controller is LAN Device and not wireless.

   

Try opening device manager and look under Network Adapters if you will see wifi or wireless under it,

ex. Capture.JPG

 

If not Look for any unknown device or Network Controller or any Yellow marked icon

Once you find either wifi , network controller or unknown device

  right click on it and select properties

 

You will have a properties windows with tabs on top

Select the details TAB , select Hardware Id on the property and copy the value

 

Once you got the hardware Id try posting it here

Lets check what device is that and find the right drivers

 

Regards

Solid Cruver

Re: Lenovo G570 Wireless network adapter issue

Hi,

 

My G570 laptop lost  the internet connection recently. I tried to download and reinstall the LAN driver and change the power management program, but the problem is still not fixed.

I found that there is a question mark as network controller. The Hardware ID is 

PCI\Ven_168C&DEN_002B&SU2SYS_30A117AA&REV_01

 

Could you find the right driver for me? Thanks very much.
