I just wanted to inform someone that the wireless network card does not work in Windows 8.1 Preview. I suspect the driver needs to be updated. When I go to the Device Manager it appears as a Realtek device RTL8192DE instead of a Qualcomm device that does not start. I tried installing the latest driver from the website but it makes the computer crash (BSOD) when trying to reboot after the installation which makes the Windows 8 automatic recovery turn on and I had to restore the system to a previous state before the driver installation.
For now, I just refreshed my system back to Windows 8, instead of trying to use Windows 8.1 Preview . If you have any suggestions, it would be great, otherwise I'll wait for a driver update.

I just registered to thumbs up this problem.
I have the same wireless network card RTL8192DE and I faced with the same problem. Device does not start with an error code 10 and this is all.
Any suggestions from Lenovo technical support?

Same problem with G475. I tried almost everything, and i still can't find the wi-fi adapter. Just disappear when i installed windows 8.1 preview, i hope microsoft or lenovo can solve this problem as soon as possible.

Geek squad employee suggested I use a wi-fi usb adapter(belkin N150 wi-fi usb adapter)...It appears to work..All though slow...This windows 8 product came on my new lenovo machine..I can't believe the wireless card does not work with the windows 8.1 update. I hate windows 8.... I was hoping 8.1 would make it more user friendly...Also I am ticked that I had to spend more money to use this computer!!!! Any suggestions out there????

Oh goody. Just updated to 8.1 and it doesn't work. Looks like everyone else is having the same problem. Why no answer from Lenovo?
