Windows 7 Wireless Driver

I bought an Ideapad Z580 with Windows 8, and it came with the following wireless lan card:

 

  Liteon WB225 BGN+BT HMC WLAN Card WCBN608AH-L6 (p5)

 

I didn't really like Windows 8, and decided install Windows 7 instead, but I couldn't find in the drivers list any wireless lan drivers that support my card.

 

Is there anywhere else where I can find the drivers, or does it work if I try to install the windows 8 or windows xp drivers (that for some reason do support my card).

 

Thanks

Re: Windows 7 Wireless Driver

hi mpomaleski,

 

Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.

 

Can you try to:

1. Download and install this driver:

  - Wireless LAN Driver (CyberTan/Broadcom, Liteon/Atheros)

 

2. If the driver doesn't automatically install, use Winrar to extract the files and run the setup.exe under the Atheros\9.2.0.502 folder.

  - Link to picture

 

If the driver above doesn't work, can you try and find out the hardware ID of the device and post it here (see this guide)

 

 

 

Let me know how it goes.

 

Regards
