Lenovo S10-2 WirelessLan network driver (Broadcom) for Windows 7 32/64 Bit and Cisco PEAP

2011-06-25, 12:46 PM

All,

 

My employer uses a Wireless LAN with Cisco PEAP authentication and I am occasionally using my Lenovo ideapad S10-2 in the office.

 

The XP driver had no issues with that, I have been using it for some time. Recently, I upgraded the machine to Windows 7 32 Bit and realized that the Wireless LAN driver from the Lenovo website does NOT offer Cisco PEAP as an option -> FAIL.

After quite some research, I found the latest driver for that Broadcom chipset (4315?) which is version 5.100.249.2. This driver is now working properly and I can connect to the WLAN again.

Questions: why is the driver on the Lenovo website so outdated? Why does neither Lenovo nor Broadcom offer this driver on their website? Is it really necessary to start investigations on the internet to find the latest driver?

However, the problem is resolved but I thought I am sharing that information. I don't think I am the only one who is connecting to a WLAN using Cisco PEAP authentication.

Okay, I assume it is like it is then. At least this can now be found in the forum if someone searches for it.
