Hi, I have a ThinkPad Edge 15" 0301-6KG , Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit , I installed the driver for every part my model has (including network controllers like Wireless or Wired LAN, Bluetooth) . But Device Manager says a network controller is not installed. I don't know what is that, to download and install it's driver. On the drivers download page on Lenovo Support, the only network thing I haven't installed is WiMax which my model has not.
Thanks in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Hi and welcome to the forum!
You could have mistakenly installed wrong LAN/WLAN drivers. Verify the ones you installed are these:-
Also, install Hotkey Features, press Fn-F5 to enable both Wifi and Bluetooth, thereafter check if the Network Controller goes away from the Device Manager.
Hope this helps.

Hi, SUCCESS and thanks god.
Sorry it took too much to find some time to examine that.
I had Installed "ThinkPad Wireless LAN" driver instead of the correct "Intel Wireless LAN (11bgn)" driver (The WLAN driver in your post.).
I had already installed the Hotkey Feature and it was showing "Bluetooth" and some "802.11 Wireless/WiMax" , so I had thought the previous driver was correct, because it could detect it.
I removed the previous, then installed this correct one, but the "Wireless Radios" window of the "Hotkey Feature" still shows that "802.11 Wireless/WiMax".
I guess it has saved the name and it can turn off the wireless device, because by turning it off in the "Wireless Radios" window, the wireless icon near the clock shows like disabled. I guess there is no problem with the wrong name, is there?
