P52 - Windows 10 x64 - setup No Wifi (solved)

2018-11-11, 10:07 AM

Brand new P52.

At setting up Windows, at the screen: "Let's get connected" - nothing is listed, even not after waiting for a couple of minutes.

So, to continue I had to 'Skip this step'


No way to connect to Internet, at least not thru WiFi.

(Image the situation that one does not have a pc to consult the forum)


Windows settings->Flight Mode: 'Off
Wireless Devices: Bluetooth: 'On'


Anybody any suggestions?





Regretfully I can't delete this thread.

Solution: download / install the "Intel Wireless LAN Driver for Windows 10"

from: Intel Wireless LAN Driver for Windows 10 (Version 1709 or later) - ThinkPad P52, P72

Note that this driver does not come with the laptop.

Neither does Windows 10 provide the driver...

So, in case of a fresh Windows install: either establish a wired Internet connection,

or use another computer to download this driver and install it afterwards.

Otherwise: no Internet.
