Wifi problem, Lenovo G560, Broadcom device, cannt find drivers that work in Win 7 32bit.

Hi, 


i scoured the internet and you forums for solutions and unfortunatelly nothing helped. 

My problem is as folows: 

 

i did a new clean install of Win 7 Home Proffesional on laptop

Lenovo G560

Bios: 29CN34WW

and after i downloaded all your recommended drivers from your support page i noticed that
pci network control device was without driver, on further investigation i noticed u dont have an win 7 driver
for broadcom wifi device.

PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4727&CC_0280

this is device hd id. 

i downloaded drivers suggested in other posts: 
5.100.82.112
6.20.55.51
and some other versions. From year 2010 till latest from 2013.
With every version syptoms are the same - everything looks ok, 

in device manager i can see the device, it says it works propperly, 
but i cannt enable the connection. It pops enabling connection and just stops.
icon remains grey. My tcp connection works fine. 

when i start troubleshooter it finds an problem, cannt find a solution and gives a message - 
problem is probably with driver for the device.

I tried reinstalling  Energy managment, i dont have any other lenovo software.

ipconfig /all

ipconfig.png

 

 

i have restarted my laptop like 20x times today from all the installing and uninstaling of drivers,
and atm i am out of ideas. So if anyone has any new input i would be grateful Smiley Happy

Cheers, 

Marin

Forgot to mention, Wireles is enabled in bios, in Energy managment. 
All indicators regarding blue tooth and Wifi are on. 

operating system is Win 7 Home premium service pack 1 with all updates installed. 

Connection by cable and bluetooth are working ok. 


Cheers, 

Marin

Update, i gave up on Win 7 home premium. Installed win 7 ultimate, everything worked like a charm. Problem solved. Note to myslef, never buy win 7 home premium again xD
