I've got the new Edge 545 and started to install windows as well as the drivers.I can't get to run my wireless though.
I checked my serial and got that I have the LTN 43142 network card
As this card didn't show up in the list of E545 drivers I just installed all three drivers one after the other checking if anything would make it work.
I can't see the Wireless option popping up under Network Connections.
For reference the hardware FRUs:
There were also a couple of hardware devices given in the support which didn't have a FRU but only a Mfg.
Bluetooth is working fine btw.
The devices without driver (code 28) are
Network Controller Location: PCI bus 3, device 0, function 0
PCI Device Location: PCI bus 4, device 0, function 0
SM Bus Controller Location: PCI bus 0, device 20, function 0
Two unkown devices one on the PCI bus the other on Microsoft APCI-Compliant Embedded Controller
Video Controller Location: PCI bus 1, device 0, function 0
I don't which of those are pertinent but I hope this provides sufficient information.

I reinstalled Windows and didn't install any drivers prior to the Broadcom WLAN driver.
Now it works.
It seems like the LTN 43142 is actually the Broadcom.
thanks anyhow and I hope some poor soul will appreciate this thread some time.
