Wi-fi card not being recognized by W7 32bit - halp :(

So, basically, when i got this laptop with windows xp - wifi worked perfectly. I've decided to install Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit, and it stopped. I cant find ANYWHERE ANYTHING about wi-fi - not in network tab, not in device manager.
I've got RTL8168D/8111D network card, laptop is Lenovo Edge 15 (302-4CG).
I've checked BIOS, pressed combination of keys to turn off/on radio and installed some drivers from lenovo site (Lenovo Support - Download Drivers and Software (US)), and i still cant see the card.

'RTL8168D/8111D network card - this is for your wired connection.
The Wi-Fi Adapter is not listed in your ipconfig /all output.

Please go back to Lenovo's site and locate the driver for your Wi-Fi adapter search for
ThinkPad Edge 15 (0302-4CG)
I found your Wi-Fi driver, under the category of Networking please locate
Intel Wireless LAN (11bgn) for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit) - ThinkPad.


Please post an update.

I've already installed it, but nothing was happening. Installed, restarted pc, and everything is as it was before install :/

And also, it installed program called Intel Proset wireless or something, there was an option to diagnose, so i run it. While program was checking hardware, error popped saying that "driver in version (no number or anything here) does not support intel proset wireless software"

This might be the wireless software that controls your Wi-Fi device.

Click on Start and type services.msc, then locate WLAN Auto Config Service, is it running or in Started mode? If it please disable it.

Also, make sure all of these Services are also running and their Dependencies.

So should i disable it or leave it alone?
There is:
WLAN Autoconfig, enabled and running
and WAN Autoconfig, disabled

Rest is enabled

Also, i've tried my friend's usb wireless adapter, Tracer W541U - it installed itself, and i had working internet after 1 minute, but i really have to get my network card to work :F

Something is up with your Motherboard. Have also updated all the chipset drivers? You may try a Wi-Fi Card and see if your Windows 7 will detect it.
