Problem with Lenovo wireless download

#1 Post by richk » Sun Apr 10, 2011 2:06 pm

I already reported this to Lenovo, but there is a problem for anyone doing a recovery from factory disks. There is a problem on all the later models with the drivers labled "Wireless LAN (bg, abg, abgn) for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), Windows Vista (32-bit, 64-bit), XP - ThinkPad". It seems to affect all recent systems. (I looked at x200, T400, T61) As of April 1, 2011, version 14 replaced version 13. In the notes, it says something about "end of support for Intel WiFi Link 5100". Indead, if you have that wireless card, as do most X200, T500, T400, etc., there is no driver for your machine. My experience has been that the Intel 5100 is the most common wireless card in T400, X200, T500, etc. The file is a large download, about 240mb.
