WIFI not working after clean windows 7 64 reinstall on Thinkpad E420s

Tried several drivers from Lenovo driver page and from Intel directly.

 

I end up with driver installed and claimed to be working by windows, but can´t find any WIFI Routers while sitting 20 centimeters next to mine.

 

It is a Intel(R) WiFi Link 1000 BGN (Devicemanager says: PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_0084&SUBSYS_13158086

 

Lenovo Solution Center Diagnosis says "Text bei aktivierter Funkverbindung - fehlgeschlagen" which means failed. Then the next Tests are on Warning.

 

At the moment there is driver version 15.9.2.1 dated from 24.11.2013 installed.

 

Reading in other posts I installed power management and hotkey drivers again with no help.

 

It is Windows 7 64 Bit installed. I am out of warranty and the reason for the new installation was a corrupt harddisk which I changed to SSD.

 

Before the harddisk crash WIFI worked fine.

 

Any Hints what I can do?

 

Cheers Martin

Hello,

 

When I looked for the latest drivers for the Intel® WiFi Link 1000 on Intel's driver download web site, it directed to me to the Intel® PROSet/Wireless Software and Drivers for Windows 7 v16.7.0.

 

Just to check, is this the same package that you downloaded? It's possible that the older driver version (v15.9.2.1) just happens to be the latest one for the WiFi Link 1000 card, but in case it is not, I would suggest installing this newer package and seeing what difference, if any, that it makes.

 

Regards,
