Everytime you restore to factory default you will have to reconfigure your wifi connection. It is like when you first receive you unit from Lenovo.

 

Update:

 

Here is a link from Microsoft on how to configure your wifi connection. In case you are using a Mobile Broadband refer to page 36 to 39 of the user guide for your unit.

You should go to - Control Panel>> Network and Sharing

 

Check what is your network status there.. You can also use the option - Connect to a network or setup a network in order to initialize Wireless connectivity.

 

Check the Adapter status, if necessary.

nope nothing is working. and few people who somehow installed the driver, they are facing low spped connection.

it is shame that lenovo has no update for driver. 

i spend a couple of bucks to get myself a usb wireless network adapter and now i disbaled the inbuilt or BGN network adapter forever. new usb adapter cost me 18 euro however there are some adapters availble for 9 euro too.

 

I will say do not smash your head, get a usb and get back to wifi life.
