Lenovo Z580 Windows 8 WiFi, Bluetooth Solution.

2013-01-12, 15:34 PM

Hey guys,

 

I have seen a lot of members in this forum having trouble to get wifi and bluetooth working in windows 8. I found a solution to make everything work smoothly. Using windows 7 version of energy management and crap is not at all required. Just follow these steps.

 

Before you begin installing windows, download all latest drivers from lenovo US site. Download touchpad and onekey theatre drivers from lenovo china site.

Now, switch ON both wifi and bluetooth. If you keep them switched off, windows 8 will never recorgnise the presence of your bluetooth chip.

 

Do not use windows 8 pro volume licence ISO. Instead use windows 8 pro ISO, which you downloaded from win 8 upgrade assistant (assuming you chose digital download option). This ISO has WiFi drivers needed for Z580(broadcom chip).

 

Perform a clean install, not upgrade. Now install all the drivers, you don't have to restart for every driver install. Restart once after everything is installed.

 

Now, you may face WiFi limited connectivity issue. Just head over to Wireless adapter properties and rollback driver. That wil solve limited connectivity problem.

 

Done. Now enjoy windows 8. :D

 

One thing I failed to solve is, the battery meter in windows 8 does not show how many hours of battery is left. If anyone knows a fix to this, please let me know.

I tried that. But still it only shows 52% remaining. It does not show how many hours of battery is left.

Hi Talk2rp,

 

 Thanks a lot for the solution. I did face this wifi issue in my Z580. I did not do any reinstall of drivers, neither OS update. I just did the Roll back driver in Wifi adaptor properties which fixed the issue straight away. Thanks a lot for writing the details.

 

regards,

Raj.
