Hi Dorin56 - thanks for the additional info. The issue you describe sounds just like the issue I have - not connecting after waking up.
I'll keep an eye out for new broadcom drivers (from all vendors) and post any findings as well!

I install one application on my computer, tested and uninstall this.
On uninstall windows, I see one application named "Broadcomm Wireless" or same.
I uninstall this application and now my computer after wake-up work ok :
- connect instant on same router
- connect after 1-5 minutes on another router - I use computer home and at work, sometimes computers sleep when go to one location to another.
Try Acer version - uninstall another Broadcomm Wireless application

I also have the same probelm- no connection after wake up.
S10-3t, Windows 7 ultimate.
Broadcom wireless component.
I have to reboot to get the connection back.
Do you guys find a solution?
Use Acer driver for the Broadcom?
Why no prople from Lenova gives us a solution?

Exactly the same problem with my s10-3t (bought a week ago). Can't reconnect or connect to a different WLAN after sleep or hibernate on all my WLANs (4, each with different hardware).
Other laptops don't have this problem...
Come on lenovo people, say something...

After searching and trying a lot of different drivers that very much resulted in the same behavior, I finally got one that seems to be working. It's still early to be sure but it successfully connected to my WLAN after hibernation 5 consequent times. With all other drivers it failed every time!
Anyway, enough said. Try it, at your own risk of course, and post the result:
Driver Name: Compal BCM4313 WLAN Card 184.108.40.206 Direct link: -- > X < --
Instructions: Extract the files but don't use the setup.exe. Just go to device manager and update the adapter driver using the files in INF folder
I'll post a followup if the problem occurs again.

Hello Smartminion, I just run into the same problem. After going back to WEP key, coming out of hibernate was no longer a problem. On 2 pcs´s it didnot work with WPA. Also under Linux Suse WPA failed. My iPad needed no settings change at all (used to work fine with WPA).
Hope it helps y out.

my s3t had a BCM57780
g470 has BCM4313

TODAY I FINALLY FIXED THIS PROBLEM ( HIBERNATION)
It was quite simple.
Lenovo released a new BIOS which does not automatically download through Lenovo update.
The link is here http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds035965
After i downloased the problem was not fixed.
I then went to the support page of lenovo and selected wifi drivers. I downloaded the latest 17.12.0 version. During installtion i was given the option to "repair" or "unistall" meaning that the driver was already that version. I "repaired".
Straight away the wifi started working after booting the laptop( which never did in the past.
Here is the interesting part. When i go to devices and then Intel Dual band wifi 7260 the dirver now is shown as 220.127.116.11 verion . I dont know how this happened sinc ethe download says 17.12.0 BUT IT WORKS.
