Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

It came with Windows 7 Starter on it and I just upgraded to Ultimate. Both 32bit. I know it's a Broadcom card, but I'm not sure how to find the model number (I'll post it if someone can tell me how). I have been searching for the drivers for hours and nothing has worked.

First place I went was to Lenovo's support site and they didn't work. There was also two links that gave the same file by accident (maybe that's the one I need). I then tried about 20 more and still no luck. I am dual booting it with Ubuntu and it automatically prompted me to download the un-approved driver. Then it worked.

Has anyone else had this problem with Windows 7? This netbook is essentially useless to me if the Wi-Fi doesn't work.

You can find all drivers for S10-3t here (look under Network: Wireless LAN).

I've tried them with no luck. Also, the first and third link are the same ones. One is supposed to be 65MB, but it's just 15MB again. Maybe that's the driver I need :) –  TehGoose Nov 18 '10 at 8:06
    
Well, that's where I downloaded all the drivers from and they all work well. If worst comes to worst, you can use the default wi-fi driver that Windows 7 suggests. The S10-3t has a simple Broadcom card (4313 if I'm not mistaken) –  Traveling Tech Guy Nov 18 '10 at 8:10
    
I was trying to get the windows driver. That's where I first encountered the problem. It knew it was a network device, but it didn't know what and it couldn't find any driver for it. So, I went to Google. I have solved it now. I'm not sure what driver site I got it from, but the name of the driver is "superuser.com". Thanks for your help :) –  TehGoose Nov 18 '10 at 11:01
    
Sorry, the name of the driver is "IN2WLN28WW5.exe". I couldn't remember the name of this site so I copy pasted it. I should not go on here half asleep :) –  TehGoose Nov 18 '10 at 15:19
