Miix 510 network adapter driver problem

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 Smiley Happy

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

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

Re: Miix 510 network adapter driver problem

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! Smiley Happy

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

Re: Miix 510 network adapter driver problem

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:

Re: Miix 510 network adapter driver problem

I downloaded and installed the network driver without the intel-software and now it works...

 

It was a little bit difficult to find the link, but here it is: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26469

 

You have to unpack the downloaded zip-file, and install it manually via the device-manager
