Broadcom WiFi Driver Ideapad Z580

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my Z580 laptop keeps crashing.  When it crashes the first thing that happens is the Wifi disconnects then a couple of minutes later the screen freezes and the entire laptop is unresponsive.  


When in aeroplane mode the computer never crashes when connected to network via ethernet card, but it would be helpful to get Wifi working correctly.  

According to windows 10 I have the latest driver.  Can anyone advise the best driver to use, where to download it and the version number.  


Help please!

Welcome to the Forums Andrew.


Z80 is not fully compatible with windows 10. Please go through this Link for better understanding. However, you can still disable windows firewall, reset all settings to default, and ran a general clean-up. Flushed the DNS, and the issue seemingly resolved itself. 


Update us how it goes.
