Need wifi card drivers for g550 replacement card

2012-06-21, 14:27 PM

I replaced the oem wifi card with a card I got from ebay. Belarc advisor identifies it as Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter, HOWEVER the purchase order says it's an IBM Lenovo G550 Fru 60Y3221 Anatel WiFi Wireless Card. I cannot for the life of me find drivers that will work with this thing, been in IT 20 years and I'm admitting defeat on this one so any help would be much appreciated. I can't find out much about Anatel except that their in Brazil their web site is in Portuguese and Babelfish was 0 help in finding drivers. I should mention that the thing shows up in device manager as enabled and working and the wifi light is on solid not blinking as it does when there is trouble. Apart from that, no Love at all.

 

Edit: The following #s appear on the card:

Lenovo P/N 60y3220, 20-002304

FRU: 60Y3221

H/C: 1ZHJW

E/C: N62191

 

Thanks,

Paul

Is it like this one?

If so, note the fccid on back, bcm=Broadcom chip,
in the case of the linked card, bcm9431

Check the support downloads for G550 wlan, Broadcom,
see if that works. (Or have you already tried that?)
