[Big Problem] Intel Wireless LAN (11abgn, abg, bg) 12.04.3000 Driver for Windows Vista and Windows 7

2009-10-29, 9:32 AM

I downloaded these driver from

 

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-73592

 

for my 5350. But this driver aren't for Windows Vista or 7. This driver are only for XP. Somebody mixed up something for this installer.

What shell I do?

I'd use the thinkvantage update manager ( http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/TVSU-UPDATE.html ) to install the driver specific to your machine. Alternativly, windows updates picked up my wireless card.

I can't use internet without WLAN, because I don't have access to a RJ45 port, UMTS, Wimax or a thelephone. :(

Ah, I understand how much trouble you're having now! It's a real pain when you can't get drivers on a pen drive.

 

Well, the only other thing i can come up with is to download the drivers from an alternative source. I'm assuming you've got an intel wifi 5300 AGN card like my T500. This looks like the correct driver (you just need to select your OS)

 

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Wireless+Networking&ProductLine=Intel®+WiFi+Products&ProductProduct=Intel®+WiFi+Link+5300+and+Intel®+WiFi+Link+5100+products

 

If you've got a different card try looking it up on the manufacturers website.

 

I've tried to find the cached drivers on my system but with no luck, looks like the Thinkvantage update clears up after itself.

 

hope that's in some way helpful - sorry, really running out of ideas!

I have a 5350. But this idea with the Intel homepage ist good. :)

I downloaded Vista 64 driver and all works. But I didn't found driver for Windows 7 64. Maybe Lenovo also use Windows Vista driver for Windows 7.

 

Thanks for helping me.
