ThinkPad W541 no driver Win7x64 support for Sierra EM7345 any more?

2016-03-04, 6:02 AM

Hi there,

 

I have a W541 with Sierra EM7345.

I had and now have a lot of problems with the WWAN-Card, and more like you can read here:

And now i cannot reinstall the driver because it's not supported for Windows 7 x64 any more:

Sierra Wireless EM7345 Software for Windows 10 (32-bit, 64-bit), 8.1 (32-bit, 64-bit) - ThinkPad

 

Now I have supported hardware with no driver available?!

Hi aschulte,

 

If you have a W541 then you need the driver for the EM7355 card; that's what should be in the system unless the parts list and psref are mistaken.

Thank you, but it's not working for me.

Downloaded and installed the driver "as administrator", reboot but there are still 2 "other devices"  in the windows device manager, that will be the LTE and GPS module.
