Lenovo G780 WiFi not detecting Wireless

This is driving me mad!

I have a G780 that I have re-imaged with Win 7 Enterprise x64 and reinstaled all the drivers for.

I am trying to connect to our wifi but the laptop is saying no connections detected.  I know the wifi is working as I have 40-50 other laptops connecting to it. 

 

The wifi is Broadcomm 6.20.55.51.

 

I have uninstalled and re-installed the driver, disabled and re-enabled in the BIOS, rolled back to the previous version of the driver (5.100.82.112), replaced the wifi card with another G780 wifi card.

 

The oiginal OS was Win 7 Home Premium x64 and was working then.

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

hi taftus,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

Im thinking about the Software Controller of the Wireless

    Can you try installing this software to Enable the function

    Lenovo Energy Management Software 7.0

After Installation try Pressing FN+F5 to open the Wireless Radio Interface and makesure that the WIFI is on "ON"Status

 

Spoiler

 

 

Best Regards

Super.  I think it is a bit poor that you need that software to run the wifi card.

 

Thanks for the tip

hi taftus

 

 

I'm glad it's working now

That Software will give you all the alternate Functions keys like the icons on the F Keys on top,

 

Welcome and Regards
