Windows 10 - Wifi issues (Centrino 1030)

Jump to solution

Hey community,

I haven't found anything specific on the topic respectively my type, so I'm posting my problem right away.

I have a Medion Erazer X6816 notebook with a Windows 7 Home Premium 64x Version preinstalled.

Last weekend I upgraded it to Windows 10 Home 64x and everything went well, except for my wifi. The point is, I cannot activate my wifi - neither via button nor via system options. According to that issue, there are no wifis displayed. Nevertheless, my wifi-card is displayed as active (with latest driver) on the device manager and it is the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030.

I have already tested whether there is a general issue concerning my internet, but obviously there is none since it works perfectly fine with a wifi-stick and with a direct connection to my router. Hence, I assume it must be a driver issue. Unfortunately, Windows didn't provide me with a driver for my wifi so I tried to install one manually...

What I have done so far...

- downloaded and installed the "latest" driver from the Medion homepage (since I live in Germany, I accessed the German homepage for my OS - the latest driver is still for Win 7 and I think quite old fashioned)

- installed the latest Intel PROSet/Wireless Software

- disabled and uninstalled the wifi card on the device manager (after having rebooted my notebook the card was displayed as active again - like before - without having obtained a fresh driver update by Windows)

So, unfortunately, everything I have tried has failed and I am running out of ideas as to what to do next... My question thus would be if anybody has a clue how to solve the issue or whether there will be a driver update available for my wifi card soon?

Thank you so much in advance for your support and best regards,

Flo

Hey Jonathan,

first of all, thank you very much for the information! Haven't discovered these documents before...

So, for now I have switched back to Windows 7 where my wifi works fine again. But now I have another (minor) issue going on: I have installed the wifi driver which is provided by Medion (and is - like I said - not quite the latest...). Here, wifi works! But when I try to download and install the latest drive via the Intel Update Utility (it actually detects one), a message pops up saying something like "Installation blocked - try to uninstall the old driver manually". When I do so and then give it another try, that message still pops up. Do you have an idea why this is the case? It's not that problematic since my wifi is also okay with the older driver. I'm just wondering...

Thanks again and best regards,

Flo

I am running the N1030 Wireless Card on Windows 10. I am running Intel driver version 15.11.0.9 and it works fine for me. Download and save it locally then use Browse my computer fro driver software and manually install it.
