2 laptops - one connects to internet - other doesn't.
I have 2 laptops. One is brand new and was connecting to the internet as of yesterday. Today, it won't. The second laptop connects - so I know it's not the wireless router. In troubleshooting, I'm supposed to "flipping a switch" or a function key combination. Any suggestions?

Theres a little slide on (or flip) switch to turn on your wireless. It can also be slide (or switch) off to turn off. Its usually located in the lower right front and sometimes its on the side depending on the model of your laptop. Theres usually a quick reference guide that comes with the laptop and that will show you where the USB ports are at, serial ports, AC jack, audio jack, CD Rom, and specifically where your wireless switch is located. There will also be a light ( blue or green indicating its on ) so once its on it can pick up wireless router signals, hence allows you internet access.

If this is brand new, did it come with the window 7 disc? usually all laptops I have come across the operational system is already installed and ready to go. The only thing I can suggest is go online to Lenovo and see if there is an updated driver for windows 7
Found this link, seems to relate to the IP configuration when setting up PPTP connections. I haven't set up one of those since XP so I'm honestly not the best to answer how to... read through the link and see if its helps you.
On the Wii console's main menu, click on the 'Wii button' in the lower left corner, then 'Wii Settings' then 'Internet' button, Select 'Connection Settings' you should see your wireless connection and be able to edit the password or just set-up a new connection by choosing 'connection 3'
i assume youre talking about plug n play and not built in wireless.
