Wireless driver for a R51 2888-CTO

2013-12-30, 17:51 PM

I have reinstalling an R51 model 2888-CTO S/N L3-CTCD [the rest is worn out]  with Microsoft XP SP3 and cannot find a driver for the wireless ethernet.  Can anyone tell me which model wireless controller is in this device?  I have tried all five listed on the Lenovo driver page for this model with no luck.

I do not think it is an intel controller cause Intel driver auto utility tells it can not recognize the wireless controller

The first link is the correct one. 

 

After downloading and extracting the driver, you must go into C/drivers/win/wlanint and run the setup file from there. 

 

Good luck. 

Cheers,

George
