I'm trying to install LAN and WLAN drivers on a Thinkpad T430. The Intel installer succeeds as does selecting the driver from device manager. However, the status for both devices is "Windows could not load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31) - An object ID was not found in the file."

  • The devices are "Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6205" and "Intel(R) 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection".
  • I'm getting this problem after upgrading from Windows 8.1 (x64)
  • Using driver versions for Centrino and for Gigabit.
  • I've tried restarting
  • ThinkVantage system update doesn't work without an internet connection
  • I'm not using a VPN

For your GB wired adapter, head directly to Intel's download cetner and get the latest ProSet drivers from them. The current release is v20.3.

For your Wifi, there are no Windows 10 "Centrino" drivers, but the generic Intel PROSet/Wireless Software package will probably (hopefully) work. It's current version is 18.20.

  • Both said they installed successfully but after restarting, neither made a difference – user501763 Sep 25 '15 at 16:08
  • Ah, I forgot to uninstall the drivers before I reinstalled. Thanks for the help. – user501763 Sep 26 '15 at 10:18
