W500 ethernet network interface card

[ Edited ]



I believe my issue is pretty silly, but I have no idea how to use ethernet card.

I have windows 7 x64 and usually I use wireless network, however today I had to use network cable, but my machine didn't recognize it. Furthermore win 7 has only one network interface installed. 

Besides ethernet port is equipped with two LEDs underneath the port itself, but none of them are working once cable is plugged in.

How to install ethernet interface and what drivers shall I use?


Thanks in advance for all suggestions.

Hi and welcome to the forum!

As per lenovo's support page, the drivers are included with the OS. I would suggest verifying if the device is enabled in the BIOS (press F1 at the startup to enter), look under Config -> Network. Also, make certain that the device is enabled in Windows by going in Network and Sharing Center -> Change adapter settings.

Give Windows Update also a go.

Keep us informed.
