Miix 510 network adapter driver problem

2016-12-25, 0:28 AM

Hey guys,

 

since a few days I'm the proud owner of the Lenovo Miix 510 with i5 processor. At the beginning everything was ok. I decided to reinstall Windows 10 to have a clean system. Everything went as expected, I installed the drivers that were stored on the original-system by Lenovo, and everything worked well except the Bluetooth and the Network Adapter. 

 

In the device-manager both devices show a Code 10-Error (Device couldn't start). Now I tried almost everything: I installed a few versions of the drivers from the manufacturer-sites, I downloaded the drivers from the Lenovo-Site. Before every install, I uninstalled the old drivers and rebooted the system. I even reinstalled the original recovery image. It didn't help

 

I also checked the drivers of the other devices in the system... At the very first start everything worked fine, so I don't think that the parts are broken.

 

So in a few words: I installed the latest drivers for everything (BIOS, Chipset, ...), but I can't get the network-adapters working. I would be very glad if someone could help me :)

Solved! See the solution

As I said: I installed the latest driver several times, but it didn't made any difference. I just tried it once more...

This is typical issue of today's devices caused by vendors (Lenovo). The preinstalled Windows image already contains all drivers but your scenario with clean install is not tested and supported. The driver update download expects the old version installed.

It is not correct link. The download page has separate drivers for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

Have you tried to update the driver from Microsoft via Device Manager automatic update or steps here https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/943104 in section Manually fix corrupted registry entries (Advanced Users) ?

 

Your comment "I even reinstalled the original recovery image." needs more information. Were there the same versions of both drivers ? Or none of them ?

 

I would also check BIOS whether these wireless devices are enabled. There is usually a power button + volume up button combination during boot to enter the BIOS on tablets.

In the BIOS the option "Wireless LAN" was enabled, I set it to "disabled", booted the system, made a restart, set it back to "enabled" and now it seems to work! :)

It looks like a corrupted BIOS settings, have you updated BIOS ?

It seems that it was just a coincidence, that it worked after I changed the BIOS-settings... After the next restart the problems were back again.

 

I figured out, that I can get it to work by restarting the system several times combined with enabling/disabling the network-adapter in the device manager. But this needs ~10-20 restarts, so it isn't a proper solution.

 

The latest BIOS update from the lenovo-website is installed:
