Lenovo G570 no WLAN after Bios upgrade

Hi guys,

I've purchased my G570 less than 24 hours ago.

Everything was cool, till I upgraded the Bois (xxx20xxx to xxxx23xxxx).

Now the Wireless doesn't work.

It shows that it is enabled but doesn't connect.

It shows speed of 413Gb/s. 

I think there is a bug in software or the bois upgrade has done something weird.

I've reinstalled the driver few times.

I've downloaded the driver from the website also, its the same version, with same results.

 

Any suggestion/solution?

 

Thanks

Re: Lenovo G570 no WLAN after Bios upgrade

Your computer is able to identify wireless networks but not able to connect.  Is this correct?
