Re: Y50-70 wifi: no appropriate driver to be installed

hi iceblu3,

 

The No appropriate driver to be installed means that you most likely installing a driver for a different Wi-Fi adapter (eg. You're installing an Intel Wi-Fi driver for a Broadcom card).

 

To find out the correct diver for your device, can you try to follow this guide on how to identify the wireless card manufacturer (or post the hardware ID here).

 

After knowing the brand of the Wi-Fi card (eg. Intel  Wireless AC 3160), try to install one of these drivers:

 

Intel WLAN Driver for Windows 8.1 (64-bit) - Lenovo Y50-70, Y50-70 Touch

WLAN Driver (Atheros, Broadcom, Realtek) for Windows 8.1 (64-bit) - Lenovo Y50-70, Y50-70 Touch

 

 

Let me know how it goes.

 

Regards

Re: Y50-70 wifi: no appropriate driver to be installed

hi iceblu3,

 

After extracting the driver below, I've verified that the hardware ID that you posted is pointing to the Intel Wireless AC 7260.

 

-  Intel WLAN Driver for Windows 8.1 (64-bit) - Lenovo Y50-70, Y50-70 Touch

 - Link to picture

 

In the Driver Tab, if you have v17.0.5.8 installed then you have the correct driver. Alternatively, you can also use the driver below from the Intel website:

 

Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software for Windows 8.1

 

 

Regards
