I have a Lenovo S10e that needed a complete reinstall of Windows. It no longer has the preload, just xp, service pack 3, from disks I own. Everything has reinstalled fine after using drivers from Lenovo website except wireless – appears in device manager as Network Controller (with yellow exclamation mark).
I think this machine has a Broadcom 4310 wireless pci card and so installed driver 54wg04ww from Lenovo site but the Network controller properties says
The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)
To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Driver.
Using the wizard and choosing to manually install from the driver folder gives an error that it cannot find the required software, although if I try to install again it gives me the option to remove it. So it's not like it's not on the machine – somewhere! Just doesn't seem to be connecting to what it needs to to bring up the wireless.
And another thing confusing me: in the details tab, Device instance id, it shows PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_4237&SUBSYS_12118086&REV_00\4&2803E7C1&0&00E2
which a search on the net suggests is Intel PRO Wireless 5100 AGN Shiloh Network Connection. I tried searching Intel's site and can't find anything that seems relevant there, so I don't know what that's all about.
Any clues how to get the wireless up and running?
