i have formatted my z580 an installed win7 64bit... the reason was simple win 8 sucked and i could never get my head round how to use it properly..
all is up and running but i cant get the wireless to connect..
i have read more forms and tried more answers but nothing works..
it loads the atheros driver and shows in the task bar but when i click it, it says no wireless available
i can connect to the internet with lan plugged in so i know all that end is working...
just the wireless issue... any adeas or help would be great...

Welcome to Lenovo Forums!
Thank you for taking time to post your inquiry.
davr0 the issue that you have right is software related issue. where there any recent changes on the computer? have installed or upgraded the OS of your computer? This issue that you face is a software and driver issue for your wireless adapter... We might need to also check the settings on the wireless adapter and we need to check the router settings.

thanks for the reply m8
basicly the laptop was windows 8 and everything worked.. but i didnt like win 8 and couldnt use it.
i formatted the laptop completely and installed windows7 64bit... a complete fresh install..
i have tried about 6 or 7 different drivers but still will not connect to my wifi.

I see, If you can provide me what Wireless card do you have on the laptop. You need to check it on device manager.
We need to know if the Wireless Adapter that you have is
Please provide the details so that I can provide you the correct version of the driver

Good day, the wireless adapter that you have is an Atheros ar9485wb-eg. I have checked the Support Site of Lenovo and the wireless adapter is different. Check this link.
I have manage to do a search on the Atheros ar9485wb-eg wireless adapter and I saw the dirver version is 10.0.0.297. Check this link.
I hope that this can help you.
Just come back and we will try another route.
