L430 wifi adapter not recognized

2013-11-28, 18:01 PM

Hi,

I updated to windows 8.1 recently, and my wifi adapter stopped being recognized.

 

The first time I powered on, the "1x1 11b/g/n Wireless LAN PCI Express Half Mini Card Adapter" showed a yellow exclamation mark in the device manager.

I restarted the computer and no it's not on the list at all.

 

I've updated the latest drivers from Lenovo, and Microsoft. 

 

What should I do now?

Seems your problem is similar to:

Hi nateo,

 

Try to remove your card and einstall it. Look at the steps there: http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/l430_l530_hmm_en_0b48570_02.pdf

 

If device manager doesn't even detect your card after that, it's more than likely a Hardware issue and you should get your card replaced.

 

Vince.
