Lenovo Wireless connection issues

oh my, you guys arent going to believe this... I burned 7048 to a dvd disk, went out and bought an external CD drive, did a clean install of 7048 on my laptop... and NOTHING. Still doesn't detect the wireless.... This is awful...

... are there wireless driver packs I could download or anything and transfer them over to my lenovo? :'(


okay, i did the troubleshooting, and it says

"PCI serial port is not installed. install the latest driver for this device."

.... how do I do this??

Windows 7 Build 7100

The drivers on Lenovo's site worked, but they were not obvious. Thanks to focher for pointing them out.

Upon unpacking my new Lenovo X200 tablet (well, my daughter's new Lenovo X200 tablet) I copied the hard drive contents to an external drive and then loaded the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Build 7100. I formatted the primary partition and installed Win7 there.

After installation some devices were not recognzed. I attached to my network via an Ethernet cable and was able to install some of the drivers by right-clicking and having Win7 search for them on the internet. However it was not able to find the drivers for three devices.
  • PCI Serial Port
  • PCI Simple Communications Controller
  • Network Controller

These problems were fixed by these drivers:

PCI Serial Port
Intel AMT X200s X200 Tablet
Local Manageability Service and Serial Over LAN (Intel AMT 4.0) driver for Windows Vista, XP 05 Jan 2009
Filename = 7vr212ww

PCI Simple Communications Controller
Management Engine Interface (Intel AMT 4.0) Windows Vista, XP 12 May 2008
Filename = 7vr109ww

Network Controller
Intel Wireless LAN (11abgn, abg, bg) for Windows Vista - ThinkPad
Filename = 6hwv04ww

I hope that this helps.
