IdeaPad s206 Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit does not find wireless after clean install

Dear Friends,

 

After installing Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bits on my new S206, the operating system does not recognize wireless device. Any suggestions?

 

(I'm not a novice, but I spent a few good hours on this issue already and didn't make any progress whatsoever Smiley Sad

 

Need your help!

 

Thanks in advance.

Hey,

 

did you format your HDD using GPT instead of MBR? Then you might have the same bug your predecessor S205 suffered from. In GPT formatted HDDs WLAN Chips are only being recognized after you installed (and started!) the Lenovo Energy Management (I am not sure about the exact right name at the moment). It might work with your S206 aswell.


Best regards.

hi david-breitgand,

 

Please Check under Device manager

                  Under Network adpter it should show Broadcom 802.11 /

11b/g/n Wireless, Realtek Wireless or Atheros Wireless,,

   

If non

 

Check for any Device under device manager that has a yellow Symbol, like an exlamation mark sign,

              It should say Network Controller

>if this is the case, Download a Driver from Lenovo Support Website,

 

-If there is no such Icons-

 

Check Your BIOS Settings,

   Keep on hitting F2 right after you power on the system, This should boot you to BIOS

Go to Configuration TAB and look for Wireless Option and Make sure it is enabled

 hit F10 to Save your changes and Exit

 

Hope this helps,

Cheers!
