No Wifi since upgrading to Windows 8 on Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E545

I owne a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E545. I came running Windows 7. It caught a virus and became unusable. The box came with Windows 8 Pro (but not Windows 7, for some reason). So I did a clean install. But now, the comptuer has no Wifi! It only looks for a hardwired ethernet cord. It's like Windows 8 Pro doesn't know this laptop has a wireless for internet connectivity! I have exhausted my patience and it has been a very frustrating experience. I would really appreciate some sage advice from more technically adept folks on how to solve this problem. Thank you!!!!

Hello and welcome,


I'd install and run ThinkVantage System Update and let it install the appropriate Lenovo drivers for your machine.  See if that fixes things.
