Well this ruined my night pretty much.
It's saying I should connect an Ethernet cable but I don't have one so I'd have to go buy one...
Wtf happened? I have a Lenova H520 btw
Can I fix it? Thanks in advance.

Probably just need to install drivers. Download them on whatever you're posting on and then copy the files over on a thumb drive or something

I'm on my iPhone >.<
I could plug in my old computer but that'd take forever. I could do it tomorrow though.
What would I need?

Should be wireless drivers on Lenovo's site for that model. Go there, download them and then copy them over. It's possible that isn't the problem but it's what makes the most sense in my head right now.

Alright I'll check it tomorrow, thanks very much.
I updated the two drivers there were before and nothing worked. It's saying only Ethernet is working.
This is just depressing though.. I work too much to deal with this >_>

Driver files man. That's the problem itself.

Won't download on my phone but I can do it on my lame computer tomorrow.
I just dislike having to do this. Supposed to be an upgrade, not a downgrade >_>
But thanks everyone. I need to sleep.
