    Before you continue reading, I already tired the other tutorials on this site with no success.

    I recently gotten a Motion LE1600, it originally had windows XP installed, XP was too slow so I installed Windows 7 successfully and applied Windows updates, but I found out that WIFI and other features no longer work. Can someone please help me and walk me?

    SOLVED

    But I want to leave a more user friendly tutorial/fix guide to get all functions to work(except finger scanner). All of the guides online a very vague so I'm making this for future reference so that another soul wont have to go there days of trying to find a fix.

    Finally after 3 1/2 days of trying to find a fix I got the WIFI, sound, buttons, and Rotation functions to work.

    First lets start with the Wifi which is pretty easy to install but slightly complicated if you don't know you're way around you computer.

    Restoring WIFI

    1. Go to this link and download the drivers.

    http://www.x-drivers.com/catalog/dr...s/companies/atheros/models/ar5004x/13510.html

    - Extract and and run the .exe file, the go to the 32 folder and copy the folder's address.

    - Open the 32 folder, open netathr.inf file add this line "w/o quotes."

    " %ATHR.DeviceDesc.1042% = ATHR_DEV_OS61_1042.ndi, PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_0013&SUBSYS_7005168C
    "

    under the section marked, make sure you add it under under Legacy HW Entries, you may need to do some spacing to make it fit correctly.
    ;
    ; OS 6.1 Manufacturer section
    ; [Atheros.NTX86.6.1]
    ; DisplayName Section DeviceID
    ; ----------- ------- --------
    ;legacy HW Entries
    (So you would add the line here)

    2. Go to device manager.

    - Then go to Control Panel> Hardware and Sounds> Device Manager

    - Find the Driver named "Ethernet Controller" under "Other Devices"

    - Click Update Drive, then choose "Browse my computer for driver software"

    - paste the address location of the folder named "32" press next and the Wifi should install and running in minutes.

    Restoring Sound

    1. Go to the motion site for driver, I'll post the link. Choose LE1600 and XP as the OS. Download "Sigmatel C-Major Audio - Version 11" and install and your sound is working in moments.

    Restoring BlueTooth
    On the Same link i provide for the Sound, this time choose the LE1700 and choose Windows 7 as the OS, download the dashboard and install it, reboot and you're good.

    Restoring Rotation and Graphic drivers.

    On the same website provide before this time choose LE1600 and choose Vista as the OS. Download "Intel Graphics - 14.25.0.4704" Now, go back to device manager "Control Panel> Hardware and Sounds> Device Manager" and this time choose the driver called "Graphic" choose update driver, and choose "Browse my computer for driver software". Find the location of the driver you've downloaded and you're good.

    Thanks for the guide. I've had to reinstall XP/Win7 quite a few times on the LE1600 and LE1700 and found that the easiest way is to install the button drivers, then the dashboard before anything else. That will get software switches for the wifi and bluetooth going. Then the rest should install without a hitch. Shouldn't have to edit the registry at all - or at least I've never had to.

    One thing to note, you apparently have the Atheros wifi card in yours - others may not. Its either that or the Intel card in it so if someone has the Intel wifi card, the Atheros drivers won't work for them. Usually, win7 will install the correct wifi drivers (in my experience) but not until the button drivers and dashboard have been installed.
