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?

Re: Lenovo 3000 C100 missing "network adaptor"
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.

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..
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.
