ThinkPad T400s: How to update to Intel Wireless Wifi for Windows 7 64-bit?

2009-12-09, 6:09 AM

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad T400s (Type 2801). I've recently been having trouble with slow speed, in particular with downloads and the internet. I tried several things; a couple times I thought I had found the source of the problem (disabled Java and other extraneous add-ons), but unfortunately it still takes a long time to transfer to and from sites on the internet and normally simple downloads take 10x longer to complete.

 

I contacted tech support, and I was advised to go to ThinkVantage system updates. I discovered that I had several updates to perform, one of which was to update to Intel Wireless Wifi for Windows 7 64-bit (I currently have 32-bit). I was able to complete almost every other update except the wireless mentioned. I tried two times and was unable to complete the download. Is there any underlying reason why my comp might not be able to do this?

I have exactly the same problem - W510 Windows7 64bit.

 

I tried (several times) to update the Intel Wifi for Windows7 64-bit from System Update, where it is being offered as "Optional" component.

 

Progress stops at 91% always and never reaches the end.

I get all my Intel updates from the Intel site. The Intel site will detect all Intel hardware and provide newest drivers whether you have a 32 bit or 64bit OS. The updates are far more frequent than through ThinkVantage.
