Go to Lenovo web site and download and install all of your drivers for Windows 8.1 starting with the chipset driver. If you previously had an older version of Windows and installed a newer version Windows may have selected its own default drivers for hardware but for full functionality you should have the correct drivers.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Now problem solved. Download driver easy & scan then select outdated brodcam & lan driver then update. Now limited internet access gone.

1st of all, Fingers should have gotten Best Answer.

2nd, you should never use "driver finder" programs. Instead, you should go to the computer manufacturer's website & download the drivers manually. And keep backup copies, just in case. I posted the link to make it easy for you.

The program you mentioned - Driver Easy - contains adware & is flagged as a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program). Uninstall it ASAP & run a full scan for viruses & malware. Try these:
AdwCleaner: https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcle...
MalwareBytes for Windows: https://www.malwarebytes.com/premium/

"finally I used driver easy"
My googling of the 2019 version driver easy, shows it clean, with many false positives.
The download site I always use, lists it 100% clean.

Won't hurt to run AdwCleaner & MalwareBytes as listed by riider, just to check any previous installs, they are 2 very good tools to keep in your toolbox.
