Please help, my G530 4151 Broadcom card is not working

Hi,

 

I have a new g530, I used it maybe 20 times, original Windows 7 Home Prem, I didn't change any drivers all original.

 

this morning  I turn on and no internet,  I checked wifi "no connection available" , it has Broadcom b/g wifi,

 

checked the switch is ON,

wireless connection is enabled,

I disable/enabled wifi with the switch

I disabled enabled in network center

 

 

I booted in Linux mint 9 to see if the windows drivers are bad

I got same problem, installed thedriver but could not connect to internet

if your computer can detect wireless networks, i don't think it's about adapter, try to reset modem.

Maybe you have a disconnected anthena. But, if your machine is new, call customer support to solve this.

iPnaSh,

 

I checked the antena on the back, both cables are connected to the broadcom chip.

 

uhhhh looks like I am going to have to call them, I hate it.

no go,

 

I called them,  it's a @#@$ nightmare, they kept telling me that I called the wrong department, I need to call thinkpad, thinkpad says they don't support G530, I need to call the main number, back and forth like 4 times,

 

 these are the number I called:

 

877-4536686

800-4267378

877-453-6686  none of these support my g530
