WiFi problem with Z50-70

2016-03-11, 10:07 AM

Hi

 

I have recently bought an IdeaPad Z50-70 (Model Name 20354) for one of my friends. She uses two softwares which work only on Wndows 7 (Currently Ultimate 64-bit installed). The problem with Broadcom BCM43142 WLAN chip on this laptop is that despite errorless driver installation, Windows tells that no connections are available. Wireless adapter appears in Network and Sharing Center with state disconnected. No wireless networks can be seen by Windows. No errors in Device Manager, no change with disabling and re-enabling adapter and complete device and driver removal and re-installation. Driver obtained from Lenovo website, ofcourse for another laptop model, because it was not available for this model.

 

Please help.

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards.

Hi, welcome to the forum.

 

     When you search for the model, on the support site, it should be Z50-70, not Z-50 70. Anyway, here is the link for the Z50-70:

 

http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/Laptops-and-netbooks/Lenovo-Z-Series-laptops/Lenovo-Z50-70?linkTrack=Homepage:Body_Search%20Products&beta=false

 

     Please select Component (Networking: Wireless LAN), then the proper Operating System, under the Driver & Software section. You should find the correct Broadcom driver there.

 

Cheers

Thanks for your reply. I have already tested that driver with no luck. Any other driver(s) available?
