    Lenovo 3000 G430-Wifi not detected after Windows 8 install


    Dear all,
    I installed Windows 8 in my notebook, Lenovo 3000 G430. It worked fine for a while, but after I had a long shutdown, when reboot again, the Wifi was not working. The drivers are still there, and when activating the Wifi from Fn F5, it goes to Airplane Mode.

    I removed Windows 8 and reinstalled Window Vista, the Wifi came back and working fine. I tried this many round, it produced the same result.

    I believe that it is compatible issue with the driver for the Wifi. Can some one able to provide the driver for BROADCOM Wireless 802.11g for Windows 8?

    Or could someone advice what could the problem be?

    Thank you in advance

    According to Lenovo, support for you laptop ended with Windows 7. This could be due to a variety of reasons including incompatible hardware and/or maybe they just want you to buy a new laptop.

    Thanks for the advice, appreciated it. Understand the support issue. As the laptop is still working alright, changing a brand new is still not the option at the moment.
    I am sure that someone out there must have tried some other drivers that fit this model....
