So, i bought my laptop(ideapad Z580) a few months back, and it came with Windows 7  Quite few days back i have installed windows 8 Pro (fresh installation). Now, iam facing problem with the wireless connectivity  .whenever  i am pressing (FN +F5) keys ,it is showing as "AIRPLANE MODE ON /OFF".  i have installed the wireless driver which is in the lenovo support site.


 i have installed "Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter" & it shows as working properly.

hi nayak,


Welcome to the Lenovo Community.


Can you try to apply these fix:


1. Wireless unable to switch on in Windows8

2. If the problem persist, see Wireless card enabled but not connected after Win 8 Pro was installed
