y470 Ethernet Drivers



I had to do a clean install of Windows 7 (Home Premium, x64) on a friend's y470. I was able to find all of the drivers that I needed besides the networking driver for the Broadcom NetLink Ethernet. I've also had no luck finding the correct drivers for my y570 with the same ethernet adapter as well. All I'm able to find are the drivers for Windows XP, and I've tried those, but with no success. Does anyone have any ideas, know where I might find them, or has had the same issue?

Welcome OriginalCobra3,

      Try here:


     I don't know why the drivers on the "other" site, are currently incomplete. Perhaps Lenovo has a driver update in the works.  Stay tuned.

Re: y470 Ethernet Drivers

Thank you! Works like a charm now Smiley Happy


While on the subject of drivers, I also had issues trying to find drivers for the esata/usb combo port. I didn't see it listed on either of the two pages. Any ideas?
