Hi, I have reintalled win 7 on an Ideapad P580 and the wifi adapter will not work. It is turned on in bios, it is turned on in windows and istalled the latest driver but I cannot get it to work. I cant even see the icon in the tray. Please help. This is the 2nd Lenovo to do this to me and I couldn't get the last one to work either.

Hello and Welcome to Lenovo Forums!
Try installing this driver version:
If it does not work then the issue is likely with the power manager, similar to this discussion: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-B-and-G-Series-Notebooks/Lenovo-G50-70-Wi-Fi-problem-in-64bit-wi...
1. Install the Lenovo Energy Management (reboot if necessary)
2. Press F5 or Fn+F5 and ensure that the Wireless current status is ON then try to connect to any Wi-Fi acess point.
Let us know if this works for you.
