X200 - unable to install wireless driver

2011-04-17, 9:05 AM

Hi,

I've bought this laptop with win 7 preinstalled and tried to get back to xp pro.

But my problem is with installing wireless driver (intel based?).

Device manager keeps saying that driver (5100) is not valid to this device. I've tried to install all avialable on lenovo's page drivers to this model but with no resoult.


Wifi is working (it did on win7) switch is turned on (BT led is on, but wifi not).
I'm unable to run system update, becouse it keeps saying, that update server is not avialalble in this moment.

So - i'm stuck.

Can you help me with this?


M.

Try getting the wifi drivers off the Intel site instead?

The System Update server is going through server maintenance/upgrades for another few more hours.

Intel isn't the only wireless card that could come in a X200, are you sure that it is the card you have?

You could run TVSU and let it find and install the proper driver.

Also, be sure you have all the MS updates installed first, there maybe some dependencies.
