Lenovo Z570 WIFI Driver Not Working

2018-11-09, 16:26 PM

Hi all. 

Thought I'd make this thread as I've recently had some issues with my Z570 laptop after a fresh install of Windows 7 and thought it would save you hours of time trying to find the right driver.

I started my laptop after the reinstall and had literally nothing on there as expected but downloading tonnes of drivers to try and get the wifi to work left me frustated as the majority didnt actually work. In the end I took the laptop apart to find out which network adapter I had it in the laptop as the support staff couldnt tell me. 

So it turns out the laptop is using a Broadcom network adapter not intel.. The driver you will need is on this link listed below. 

https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/downloads/ds015008

What you need to do it remove the old drivers or the inccorect ones from you system and restart first. 
Once you're back on the home page screen. Run the exe from the download and install and once it is complete, once again restart the machine. 

When the laptop restarts, use the FN + F5 to toggle the wifi adapter on and off. Once you have turned it back on again, you should be able to connect to the internet. I hope this helps.

Hello,

This happened to me when i installed a clean windows 10 on a new SSD. My laptop is lenovo Z570.

You need to download the Lenovo energy management software for windows 10 from below link:

https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/in/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/ideapad-s-series-netbooks/ideapad-s205/downloads/ds026006

Install the software, restart your computer. Use Fn + F5 and enable your wireless network adapter and it should work.

If wireless network adapter is not showing in your window then do the following:

Go to device manager in control panel.

Click on Wifi Adapters, then right click on your wireless network adapter, go to properties, go to power management and uncheck 'allow this computer to turn off this device to save power'.

Restart your computer.

use Fn + F5 (now the wireless adapter should be showing) and enable your wireless network adapter (current status must be ON)

You can also turn your Blutooth ON/OFF from this menu.

 

This should work 100% ....Enjoy!!

If there's no Wifi under Energy Management (Fn+F5) then:

 

revert to windows 7 (or swtich to old drive with windows 7, doesnt matter, it's just that the bios updates doesn't work under windows 10)

install newest bios update: On pcsupport.lenovo.com

 

look for BIOS Update for "Microsoft Windows XP, Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit) - IdeaPad Z570"

 

"Bios update version 38 date: 01 Nov 2011"

 

get back to windows 10

Lenovo Z570 WIFI Driver Not Working

Thanks a lot BonP! You saved me from a big headache.I was searching for 3hrs before I saw your answer. It worked perfectly.

 

Edit: I had a problem after restarting. The wifi thing disappeared in Fn F5. I tried reinstalling windows but didn't help. I had my old hdd with win 10, I booted it up and wifi worked.

In win7 update bios first.Then upgrade to win 10.Follow BonP post ( first message in this page) to get wifi working.

 

Side note: Thanks to bugas. After restarting my wifi failed, so updated bios in win7 like he said and now back to win 10 and its smooth.
