Hi Steve, HELP!! I followed your instructions, but my Lenovo V570 doesn't have Device Manager. I can connect to the internet, however once there I can't type.. it's stalled forever. I can connect to the wifi with my ipad, just can't get anywhere on the internet on my Lenovo v570

Thank you! Lenovo still has not fixed this. Spent hours working on this, and on their website, for nothing! I just got an IdeaPad Z710 and could not stay connected. Been trying for 3 weeks, till I found your reply. I had a few differences, but it worked.

 

Control Panel, Device Manager, Network Adapter., Intel, Right click to see properties.

 

Here is where my Windows 8.1 is different. I had no "disabled" choice, but I clicked on   Ad Hoc Channel  801.11 and changed the selection to "2", where it had been on "3." It is working beautifully now.

 

But THUMBS DOWN to Lenovo. I am very unhappy that there is no simple fix, anywhere I could find on their site.

 

Thank you gil_bates, VERY much. I will rethink choosing a Lenovo next time.
