Hey guys, I did a full reinstall from disk using the same win7 Pro 64 bit SP1 software, the wireless driver which was working fine which I found here:

 

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/18713/Ethernet-Intel-Network-Adapter-Driver-for-Windows-7-?product=47620

 

when I try to install it is sayig it is not for this version of windows.

 

I tried 2 drivers for this machine:

 

http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/migr-73611

 

and another one but none works, this is the ID

 

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_0085&SUBSYS_13118086&REV_34

 

help please?

Also, this pic shows the drivers which were there before the reinstall, do I need those MS Virtual wifi miniport adapters?

Does this one work? Your first link is for an Ethernet driver, not a Wifi driver. Your Vendor and Device ID list it as a Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205

Trying to install the driver in your post the Intel proset I am getting:

 

Installation blocked

This version can not upgrade from the current older product. Please uninstall the older product manually

 

I am not understanding since there isn't a wireless driver installed?

See this intel thread regarding that error.

His first driver is from driver update which requires having to purchase, the 2nd driver I had already tried.

Give this one a shot:

 

http://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/LAPTOPS-AND-NETBOOKS/THINKPAD-T-SERIES-LAPTOPS/THINKPAD-T430/downloads/DS104074

 

It's best to download drivers from Lenovo, not Intel, as they are usually specifically approved for your model.

Sorry, but I don't think it's the same one. Can you still go ahead and try it?

I am not understanding the driver which was working before the uninstall is not working now, could be due to the previous windows being the lenovo win7 software and now it's a win7 from disk?

 

I think the only here now is to get a usb adapter?

Is there any other yellow exclamation marks other than the network drivers? If you have Ethernet then right click the Wifi device and select update driver.

 

Also the detection utility may be able to work. You will need an Ethernet connection.

Not sure what's happening either. :) Doubt it's related to your installation with a Windows disk. Suggest you do the following, if John's advice doesn't work:

If that fails, just revert back to that system restore point. Then do the above but try these drivers:
