Re: Intel(R) Centrino(R​) Wireless-N + WiMAX 6150 not working after Win10 upgrade

hi Hermes101,

 

Welcome to the Forums.

 

You didn't mention the model of your lenovo PC but if you look into the Device Manager > Network Adapters, does it show the Intel Wireless 6150 adapter or do you see both the wireless and WiMax driver in the Other Devices entry?

 

 - Sample image

 

If the WI-Fi adapter is not present in the Device Manager, can you try to install this driver (this is for Win8.1 but it should work on Win10).

 

Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software for Windows 8.1

Version: 16.11.0

Size: 90.83 MB

 

 

 

Let me know how it goes.

 

Regards

Hi Neokenchi, sorry forgot mention model... its Lenovo V570 1066

In device manager I see exactly what is in your "Sample image", what means there is no drivers for this device installed... I tried drivers for win 7 and for win 8.1... no luck ... then I tired yor recomended drivers, still no luck... still exclamation mark near device...

hi,

 

If you see the Intel Centrino Wireless 6150 in the Network Adapters then that means the Wi-FI driver is installed but not that WiMax driver.

 

If you're looking to enable just the Wi-Fi functionality, can you try the following:

 

1. Toggle the physical wireless switch to ON

    - Link to image

 

2. Install the driver below (run it in Win7 compatibility mode if necessary) then reboot.

 

Lenovo Energy Management Software
ver 6.0.1.1
12.8 MB

 

When finished, hit Fn+F5 and ensure that the wireless current status is set to ON see if you can now detect and connect to a Wi-Fi network.

   - Link to image

 

As for the WiMax functionality, can you check the solution in this thread

 

 

Let me know how it goes.

 

Regards

Dam... Dumb head I am Smiley Wink

When I said "exactly what is in your sample image" I meant only device with exclamatory mark,
I didnt even noticed anoter divices in your picture... After your last post I cheacked again and
found out that my wifi is working... and only Wimax or whatever is without drivers but I'm not using it.
But  still I tried your solution for WiMax functionality and Voila... all working!

Thank you very much!
