IdeaPad Z580 Wireless Problem

I am writing this on behalf of my father, who has recently bought an IdeaPad Z580.


He was getting increasingly frustrated at Windows 8, so I suggested for him to downgrade it to Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. After finally overcoming the hurdle of the GPT harddrive, I am now stumped by the fact that now the wireless adaptor wont work.


I am able to use the Ethernet cable adaptor, and it is currently plugged into the router and working fine with a wired connection, but let's be honest, what';s the point in having a laptop, if you can't surf on the move?


I've tried redownloading drivers and such for the wireless adaptor with no success. Hope someone has a suggestion.


Thanks in advance!

Re: IdeaPad Z580 Wireless Problem

I have a very simular problem on my newly purchased Z500. 


I ditched the pre installed windows 8 for my copy of windows 7. Installed now non of the "windows 7" drivers work. So now i have a £600 paperweight sat on my desk.
