Y580 - Reinstalled Win7 - Can't identify, which Wireless Driver to download

Hey,

After my Harddrive failed I bought and installed a new one and now installed Win 7.

 

Now I'm downloading the drivers needed ( listed on http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?&DocID=HT073649 )

There are multiple drivers for wireless internet, but I cant identify which I need to download. I tried to use the recommended " Part Look-up" on the Lenovo Support page, but when I enter my Serialnumber, there are no results.

Does anyone know where I can look up which wireless adapter is installed and which driver I need?

If there are any more Informations necessary, I can add them.

Thank you,

Henning Kunze

Hi Henning,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

 

According to the variants the Wireless card installed in your Y580 Laptop may vary, Hence I suggest you to try both the Wireless adapter from the below link. But the computer will detect the Hardware from the computer and installation process continues. Please let me know the findings.

 

Do post us back if the issue persists.

 

Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

I have Y580 with Win7 and the wireless card I have is Intel 2200, and the driver version is 15.0.0.75. I think this is the generic driver installed by Windows.
