Hi Matt 125,
According to the information you have provided it seems that you are using the inbox driver from Windows* 7, I would recommend contacting Lenovo* to get the proper driver for your system.
Thanks Mark, I went over to Lenovo site tonight and posted this issue on their user forums. Here @ Installed Win7 on Ideapad y510 and no wifi connect... - Lenovo Community
So, I hope it's a short time before this issue is solved. I will post the fix as soon as I get the Intel wireless wifi link 4965AG operational under win7. Wifi connectivity issues under Win 7 are a huge problem on the M$ answer site and M$ has not issued a one size fits all fix for this issue. So, I'm really curious to see what the fix is. Take care.

Issue SOLVED! Purchased MediaLink USB WiFi. Now wireless up and running. Lenovo tech sent me link to power management software that theoretically could solve this issue. Installed but do not know if deployed right, it did not work. M$ techs gave me all of these supposed fixes which were entirely off base. Since Lenovo did not update their driver for Ideapad Y510 to be compatible with Win 7 and M$ did not make Win 7 backwards compatible with Intel WiFi 4965AG, the problem remained. Save yourself the aggravation and frustration of dealing with this issue by buying a wireless USB! Thanks for everyone's input! Have a great holiday and a great new year!
