Re: Cannot get Wireless to work

Support says I need to order the Recovery CD since I put my own OS on the machine. I would have thought the drivers from the support site would cover what I need but I was told otherwise. Pretty disappointed right now.

 

Thanks for the help!

Re: Cannot get Wireless to work

Maliha, it looks like I messed up when I reinstalled the drivers from the link you sent me. I must have clicked on the Setup.exe from an existing driver I installed instead of the one provided. After wiping out the directory and trying again, it worked.

 

I now have wireless access. Thanks for your help!

Sweet! Glad to hear it! Smiley Happy


For recovery discs, there is no need to order as long as you created a set yourself:- http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-74040
