Use an Ethernet cable to connect from the network-port on your computer to one of the LAN ports on your router, to get Internet access.
Then, access http://WindowsUpdate.Microsoft.com
and click "Custom" scan.
When it completes, on the left, click "Optional Hardware",
and see if Windows Update is offering you a device-driver for your wireless adapter.
If so, check-box that driver, and install the update.
Go to the control panel, then System, then Hardware tab, then Device Manager. Then Network adapters - you should have two network adapters one LAN and one wireless.
If most likely have one, the LAN adapter and a yellow ? against a network adapter - this will be a wireless adapter (its not installed)
Check your BIOS and make sure the wireless card is enabled.
You need to download from the IBM/Lenove WEB site the wireless driver (there may be several types that is installed for your model laptop). Make sure you select the correct Windows version driver.
When you run the driver,it will uncompress and copy to your hard drive in C:\drivers. You can then install the driver from this directory. If it doesn't work then repeat with another driver, most likely one that works will be the Intel one.
Perhaps you have not installed ALL the drivers for your system.Sometimes a missing driver for other hardware causes a problem.After installing all the drivers for your system and if it still doesnt work , try using the connection manager built into windows (instead of configfree).
first, have a WIN XP startup disk...created by (in windows) inserting floppy and right clicking choosing format and select option "create MSDOS startup disk"
first backup all personal files...then restart and bypass to DOS screen at startup...try using F8 key just after BIOS screen...then select startup to DOS prompt only...then run (from the floppy disc) format c:
now you should have a nearly bare hard drive. repeat above steps and this time choose "startup using CDROM drivers"...then insert CDROM and redirect to that drive letter (d drive?) and run setup.exe.
