Re: Z580 wifi problems on Windows 8 - Please help!

2014-02-01, 11:41 AM

Actually, I'm using the latest driver from Intel (ver 16.7). It seems the signal is stable enough but it does not sustain channel bonding which will give you a max rate of 300 mbps (that is for my intel wifi card). How long I can partially enjoy this condition, I can't make a prediction. But with the usb adapter, I can get a very stable condition all the time.

I have Broadcom adapter installed in my Z580, so Intel driver won't suit me.

Latest version of driver provided by Lenovo has not been updates since 16 October 2013.

Well, if we refer to Lenovo, the latest driver for my case is also last 16 October 2013. However, Intel has been releasing new driver versions for my card. I'm not sure though about Broadcom.

Finally I found the solution. I've installed Broadcom wireless driver for HP Pavilion g6-1c70ca. 

The same Broadcom BCM 4313 WiFi module is intalled in it.
