Thinkpad Edge 15 wireless problems

I have 3 thinkpads that after a fresh reload are unable to connect to wireless networks. I have gone through and installed the different wireless drivers on the lenovo support website.

 

I have gone through several steps of similar problems others have had but it hasn't made a difference.

 

I have installed:

 

HotKeys & patch

Power manager & driver

Chipset

The realtek network -ethernet adapter and communications LAN driver

I have installed and removed each wireless adapter available

 

Thinkpad Edge 15

Type: 0319-46U

 

On a side note in the Device manager screen there is a "Network Controller" alert saying no driver installed for this device. I have determined it is some Realtek device but beyond that I am lost.

That fixed it!  Finally.  Thank you.  I wish that driver was listed under the product driver support!

'welcome.

Glad I could help you out. Smiley Happy

 

I'm going to raise the issue of the driver location. Yours is the 4th or 5th Edge 14/15 that I've worked through that has needed the driver residing in the Edge 13 repository.

 

Cheers.

Re: Thinkpad Edge 15 wireless problems

Thank you....GURU because clicking on this link is the final point after searching 2 hrs on this LENOVO site to find a driver.  Never have I seen anything so complicated and user-unfriendly.  Thanks again for your efforts and help!  Thanks from Germany  (the tech support do not work on Sat and Sun in Germany.........the only two days when I have time and after 8pm.......and they do not work then either)
