deaPad N580 Windows 7 Network Controller driver (Intel WiFi 5300 AGN)

2015-10-13, 8:15 AM

I bought this laptop for my father to use and like many, he didn't care for Windows 8. So, I did a clean install of Windows 7 Professional.  I have been unable to find a driver that will work for the Network Controller (Intel wifi link 5300 agn).  The drivers you can download on the Lenovo site do not work (click here). Please, can anyone assist with this?  This computer is useless to him unless we can get the wireless working. The LAN isn't working either. Thanks so much for any input you can provide.

Dear Manujm,

 

According to the serial number, this laptop sold with Non Intel Wireless card,

 

Please try to fully uninstall the Wireless driver from the device manager and install the below link.

Joseph

Joseph, would you also happen to know which driver I should download for LAN (Ethernet) -- there's nothing for Windows 7 on Lenovo's N580 website

Dear manuj,

 

The Ethernet card of this laptop is Atheros, and you will find that it is installed by default.
