Wireless Driver Woes

Please, stop me from performing a "drop test" on my tablet from the second story window.  

 

 

Issue:

I was updating drivers with DriverEasy, and apparently, the wireless driver they recommend was wrong?  Though it very well could have been a user error.  I click on "properties" of the network adapter driver on the device manager, I get the following error "This operation cannot start (code 10)". I have no internet access at all.  

 

OS: Windows 10

Wireless Card: Broadcom 802.11abgn

Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 - Type 3679

 

What I've tried:

-  Rolling back the driver, did not work

- Uninstalling the driver, scanning for hardware changes

- Disabling the driver, enabling

- Running DriverEasy offline, installing driver again

- Restarting

- Restoring windows (unsuccessful, I have no restore points.  Excuse me while I kick myself for this)

- Resetting windows (received "there was a problem resetting your PC" error)

- Run network troubleshooting

- Reset network settings

- Searched Lenovo site for driver, but it seems they only have a driver listed for Windows 8?

 

What else can I do?  What am I missing?

Re: Wireless Driver Woes

Hi Jsinclair92! Welcome to our forums community. The tablet is not compatible to run Windows 10 because there are no drivers for it and you can refer to the photo below. We highly suggest you downgrade back to Windows 8.1. You can get the driver updates directly from this link: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/tablets/thinkpad-tablet-series/thinkpad-tablet-2/3679/do... once you're back from Windows 8.1

 

Regards

Re: Wireless Driver Woes

Maybe I posted the wrong tablet model #, but I have been running Windows 10 flawlessly on this tablet ever since Windows 10 was released.

I see. Feel free to post the MTM of the correct model so we can check it too.
