Important information
  1. Support for Windows 2000 was terminated.
    On Windows 2000, use the old version, 11.05.0 API 7KWC50WW.

 

Requirements
  • Make sure that the following driver prerequisite were installed on your system before installing this driver:
    • MSXML6.0 Parser or higher
    • Windows Installer 3.14 or higher
      (Download installer from http://www.microsoft.com)
  • If you use Access Connections, the following must be installed.
    [For ThinkPad SL300, SL400, SL400c, SL500, SL500c] [For the other ThinkPad models]
  • If you currently use IEEE 802.1x authentication on Windows XP Service Pack 1 and do not use WPA encryption, Lenovo recommends you uninstall Q826942 (WPA Supplicant update rollup package in Windows XP) and Q815485 (WPA Wireless Security Update in Windows XP).
    This does not apply if you are running Windows XP Service Pack 2.
    To check if Q826942 or Q815485 is installed and to uninstall it:
    1. Start Windows XP and logon with administrative privileges.
    2. Click Start and then click Control Panel.
    3. Click Add or Remove Programs.
    4. Click Windows XP Hotfix (SP2) Q826942 or Windows XP Hotfix (SP2) Q815485 if it is listed under Currently installed programs.
    5. Click Remove and follow the instructions on the screen.
      Note:
      The above action will remove all the fixes within the update rollup package, Q826942. You may need to re-install the other specific hotfixes you expect for this rollup package.
  • You may need to re-enter security information after updating the Wireless LAN driver.
  • If you use Single Sign-On with the following authentications, ThinkVantage Access Connections version 4.22 or higher is needed.
    • LEAP on Windows XP
  • [Specification changes]
    2200BG/2915ABG Network Connection will report lower signal strength than with previous driver versions. Because the 2200BG/2915ABG methodology was changed to be more accurate and responsive, similar to the 3945BG/3945ABG. However, wireless network performance and functions are not affected at all by this change.
