Network Trashed on My Lenovo W510 And The NIC Driver Will Not Install–So SIMPLE If You Know The Secret

Thanks to Keith Combs for his post as it provided me the solution.

  • Install the Intel Ethernet driver from 6irf24ww_764. You are running the installer but it does not really install it. However, it does put the driver on disk so you can manually select it later.
  • Start | type Device Manager | Press ENTER


  • Right-click “Ethernet Controller” (under other devices)
  • Select the Update Driver Software… menu item
  • Click Browse my computer
  • Click Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer


  • Scroll down the list and click Network Adaptors to select it, then click Next


  • Click the have disk button
  • Click browse


  • Go to c:driverswinethernetpro1000winx64ndis62 (if you put it in the default location or wherever you put it during installation) and select the e1k62x64.inf file.
  • Click Open
  • Click OK


  • Select the 82567LM-3 nic in the list and click Next
  • Click Yes on the compatibility warning dialog box
  • Click Close.
