Hi,

  • Press the Windows key and R to open the Run dialogue.
  • Type "devmgmt.msc" and press enter. Go past the UAC prompt if necessary.
  • Make sure there are no errors showing, particularly in the networking section. Errors will be obvious, there is no need to hunt for them. Check Other Devices if this catagory exists.
  • Under the Network Adaptors catagory, find the Wireless card and right click on it.
  • Click on Properties.
  • See if any errors are showing here and note down the error code and post here.
  • Under the Driver Tab, click on Update Driver.
  • Click on Search Online and let it finish. Install driver when asked.
  • Note down and post here the model of you wireless network card and your full computer make and model.
If this does not fix the problem, download the drivers from here: Lenovo Support & downloads - Drivers and software - ThinkPad X30, X31, X32

Here is the direct link to the correct drivers for your card and OS. Restart your system after install and see if the problem is fixed: http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/7kwv50ww.zip

This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)
After i click on "update driver software" online.. It says the Best driver for your device has already been installed
*windows has determined the driver software for your device is up to date..

Hi,

Try to manually update the drivers using the second half of my last post.

Also, go back into Device Manager, right click on this device, and click Properties. Under the Driver tab, click on Driver Details. Note down the files listed. Do tell me if there are huge numbers, though I think there will only be a couple.
