Lenovo 3000 C100 missing "network adaptor"

Hello,
I tried to set up Comcast cable internet on my Lenovo 3000 C100 today. It included an hour of trouble shooting. Finally, the rep told me to go to Device Manager screen > View > Network Adaptor. I told him that "network adaptor" was not listed to which his reply was "that why you cannot connect." He then told me to call Lenova for help adding it to the laptop. I called them and they wanted to charge me $99 for support in adding it.
Is there a more affordable way to do this via the internet?
thanks!

Yep got to Lenovo web site, customer support, serch the data base for drivers for your computer and select the drivers for you wireless device, and install them, without knowing the brand of wireless you have I am just stabbing in the dark, try that and let me know.

    my suggestion to you is to purchase a NETGEAR Wireless g router and connect to your Comcast, and a linksys usb wireless adapter. wallmart has these very reasonable and install the software, eather way your going to spend about 99.00 on the network, but in the long run it will pay off, I use this setup here in my office at my computer shop/home, and it works excellent, the netgear wireless g router is around 43.00 at wally world (wall mart). and the linksys wireless usb notebook adapter is about 25.00.. in the long run it's the safest and most reasonable, resolution to your problem.



    Good luck and thanks for the personal request, if i can ever be of service in the future just drop me a request as you have here this time, and again it's been a pleasure, and i hope this takes care of your problem.

HI.. I have formatted my lenovo 3000 c100 and now audio is not working. I have tried all possible ways, installed the drivers from the lenovo site. But still it is not able to detect the audio device. ...


have u tried the CD that came with the notebook...it must have all the drivers....if Lenovo has given the driver in the CD then just install the driver for sound adaptor from that CD....if that does not work...try installing Win7...or get a RedHat Linux for free and install that...else u may have to use an external speaker thru the USB...use this USB sound adaptor, buy from Ebay for 1$...

pls revert back...and kindly leave a feedback and rating for this solution....it will help me become a "Guru" here on Fixya..
regards...

Lenovo 3000 C100 problem, I have lost my wireless connection to the internet and cant seem to get this working again. THe laptop works windows XP


First please check if the wireless connection drivers are installed.
Please click on start -> Run -> type "devmgmt.msc" with out quotes and click on ok.
This will open Device manager.
In the Device manager, click on the (+) sign beside Network adapter and check if you can see the wireless adapter entry.
If you have any yellow exclamatory marks or red cross mark, you have to install the driver for the device.
If you cannot find the device under network adapters, check if you can see any entry that says as Network controller under other devices.
If so installing the driver should resolve the issue.
If you cannot find the entry in both the locations, then the issue would be with the hardware. Contact the Manufacturer for the service options.

Connectivity problems


Hello,

Are you willing to go through some questions and answers to find out what you've got and what will work?

For example, do you have a port on your laptop that looks the same as a phone jack but much larger?

Do you have a blue icon on your F keys that looks like an antenna? (a blue verticle line with radiating half circles on either side?)

And are you using your laptop to connect to FixYa?

Regards,
Worldvet
