The T30 laptops do not have a on/off button that turns the wireless card on.
Once the wireless card driver is installed the wireless card will detect any wireless router and access point within its range. You need to configure the wireless card to connect into the wireless router or access point eg. the encryption, SSID etc.
The Thinkpad laptops have different wireless LAN cards installed, when you install a wireless card driver and it doesn't work, then install a different model wireless card driver. Also make sure the XP or Vista version of the wireless driver matches the Windows version that is installed on the laptop.
Possibility one: defective wireless card. Possibility two: improperly installed card driver.
Possibility three: wrong card driver
Possibility four: device conflict with card
For possibility four, does the card stop working when you use another device on your machine? Try disconnecting all other connected devices outside of the laptop (printers, scanners, webcams, MP3 players, etc) and see if the issue goes away. Keep us posted.

Try This:- go to MyComputer/Control Panel/System/Device manager. if you have any yellow exclamation marks by any of the devices, then they are not functioning correctly. either re-install the driver. Or uninstall reboot the computer, when the hardware wizard detects the device, you will get options to search/ re-install driver et,c.
You don't have the right driver, finding the right wireless driver can be a pain. Open the panel on the bottom and get the make and model of the wireless card. Then go to Lenovo's support site and read what card each driver covers, find the driver for that specific card and install it. If it still doesn't work, go to driverguide.com and search for the driver by the wireless card make and model. At this point, if the card still isn't working, then you may need a new card.
