Wireless Driver NetWNs64 messages and problems

I'm having problems with my wireless Driver.

The main problems started on April 3, when I woke the computer (A Lenovo Thinkpad E430 laptop) from hibernation. (I hibernate overnight for up to two weeks between restarts.) That morning I had no access to the internet, so I ran the troubleshooter. It caused the Display Driver to "stop responding and recover" but seemed to fix the internet.

Except it didn't, as I had problems with it until the 7th, when it would be connected for a few minutes before starting a cycle of "Identifying" and "Connected" about ten times. I restored the computer at that point to about a week before the problems started.

On the 28th it happened again, and a restart fixed it that day. In the event viewer I found a series of messages from NETwNs64:
5035 (2 times)
5005 (4 times)
5002 (43 times)
all with this message, just different numbers:

The description for Event ID 5005 from source NETwNs64 cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

The following information was included with the event:

Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230

The specified resource type cannot be found in the image file

The \Device\NDMP24 service entered the Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230 state.

Going back through the event viewer, I found I'd been having the 5005 error almost once a day, always 2 times one right after the other, for months.

On the 3rd of May it happened again, same errors during hibernation the night before and no/limited access to the internet, so I uninstalled and reinstalled the driver for the Intel Wireless-N 2230.

I thought it worked, but I had the Identifying issue after I slept the computer for an hour (Identifying for a few seconds, connected for a couple, repeat for about a minute, be fine for a couple minutes before it happens again), so I downloaded the driver from the Intel Website and installed it. I think it also installed something called the Proset.

I had the error 5005 on the 5th and 6th but didn't see it again after I restarted late on the 6th until the 11th (today), around 8 in the evening, and now, at 9:40, a little after a restart.

The driver I installed is 15.17, the latest from the Intel website.

Also, after restarting, each time I found a few messages about a ZeroConfigService, which I'm 99% certain was installed with the new driver. My main concern is with the re-emergence of the 5005 messages, though I can give more info on the ZeroConfig messages if necessary. I only saw them around the time of the restart, though.

Any suggestions for what I should do now? What do the 5005 messages mean? I thought I was done having them, but having them show up twice today is making me worried.

Install SlimDrivers, don't do anything, just upload screenshots ( SS ) of what it finds.

Did you install the wireless driver form the Lenove website?

The latest version on Lenove is Version
The intel driver you downloaded may already be adapted for win 8 and win 10.

To clear all possible hardware configuration on the de wireless hardware, power down the laptop completely, disconnect adapter and take out the battery. leave it for a few minutes to drain the remaining power from circuits. Reassemble and power on.

Sorry it's taking so long to respond - I have a lot of things to take care of, plus there's been a lot of thunderstorms and there are more predicted to come.

JohnW, I went to the official website and ended up with DriverUpdate, but since I've uninstalled it already it shouldn't matter. The screenshots are here:

sluc, I did not try the drivers from the Lenovo website - when I was looking originally, I couldn't find the combination of my laptop + the Intel 2230 Wireless. I found one through your link, I'll be trying it once I get the time/opportunity to sit and give it a go.

I'll report back after I get that chance.

"The screenshots are here"
They appear to be for the paid version, not the Free as per my screenshots ( SS )

Is that correct?

The Slimware Utilities website had both a free and paid version of the program and I was careful to get the free one. I think it's because I ended up with DriverUpdate and not SlimDrivers. I thought they would be the same since I got the free version but it turned out they weren't.

Well, I came back and woke it from sleep, and about ten minutes later it was doing the "Identifying" thing. I tried the driver that sluc recommended, but when it got to the proset/install screen, it said there was a newer version already installed. I forgot to do the hardware configuration part; after I installed SlimDrivers I shut it down and did that.

I did the SlimDrivers program linked, here's the screenshots:

So far it only happens after a sleep/hibernate; hasn't happened yet after hibernate since I put in the newer driver but after this...well it's hard to tell.

"I did the SlimDrivers program linked, here's the screenshots:"
They can all be installed, do one at a time, starting at the top.

Reboot after each one is installed.

While I was thinking of updating a few drivers, I don't see how updating all of them (ex: the display and audio drivers) are going to help with my wireless acting strange after hibernation/sleep...?

Correct, but it is best to have the comp fully up to date, just to give a solid foundation.

I see...well, it's going to take awhile to put them all in, as there's a lot going on right now. I'll try and keep this updated as things happen.
