Windows 10 Driver Support, Intel Centrino Wireless N-2230 drivers for Windows 10

Dear All,

I have installed Windows 10 pro 64 bit( Previously Windows 7 pro 64 bit) on my Lenovo Edge E431, from then my wifi losses its connection. Lenovo Solution center(a software in PC) says the driver is not supported.

I have checked driver support Intel Download Center, I found no solution.

Pls help me on this. Attached the pic FYI.

I am having a problem with this wireless card since upgrading to Windows 10 64bit as well, this is on a Dell Inspiron 14z. The problem seems to be it drops DNS since the error is DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NO_INTERNET or another variant of that. When this error occurs all browsers stop working and internet is labeled as limited. After a minute or two the connection resumes. This has only started to happen since updating to Windows 10.

I have tried everything from applying static DNS setting in Windows and my router. Flushing DNS, resetting winsock among others, nothing seems to help and the problem returns. I have also noticed in the advanced tab of the device driver the dropdowns are all empty, there are no options in them.

Edit: I was just able to rollback the driver to the January 6, 2015 version 15.16.0.2 from the April 30 (?) version and the advanced settings came back. When I checked before I was not able to roll the driver back. I will monitor this version and see if the problem goes away.

There seems to be a bug with Windows 10 and this wireless adapter.

Thanks,

-Michael

The driver rollback did not fix the issue. The error comes back periodically.

michaelce,

The only drivers available for the Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 2230 are Windows*10 inbox drivers. Intel does not provide Windows*10 certified drivers.

We recommend that you contact Lenovo to see if they have anything available that might help you resolve this issue and if possible, contact Microsoft* as well for further assistance.

I found that I was having the same issue as well. The (temporary) solution for me was to disable the Bluetooth radio and then I have had smooth sailing. Like was mentioned here as well, I found that the issue seemed to be with DNS as running ipconfig /flushdns seemed to make it work again. I found that I had issues after starting up again or after resuming from sleep. Since I have disabled the Bluetooth, I have had no issues maintaining a good connection.
