The model of machine is Lenovo Ideapad Y580 and it is currently running on Windows 10. I frequently run into wireless connectivity issues. The message that i get when i troubleshoot for the problem is - A network cable is not properly plugged in or may be broken, is there any way that i can fix this problem.
The wireless drively currently being used is - Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2200

Hi Manoj77 ,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
After upgrading to Windows 10, some software or hardware functions of your computer might be unavailable. In addition, some software issues might occur. Installing the latest Windows updates, device drivers, and application updates may fix these issues.
Would device manager detect unknown device for the WLAN card?
You may have to either fo back to the original OS or wait for Intel Windows 10 driver if native Windows internal drivers will not work. .
Hope this help answer your query.

Hi Manoj77 ,
Before you go back to the old OS , have your laptop stay with Windows 10 and verify that it is activated for maybe a week.
This would guarantee you that your systemboard have a legitimate Windows 10 product key registered in Microsoft database just in case in the future that updates would be done (free win10 upgrade version until july only).
You can use a usb wifi adapter as an alternative for now.
Please don't hesitate posting your query and sharing ideas with our fellow community members at anytime.
Hope the reply helped answer your question.
Best luck to all your endeavors.
