hi there, you wireless network card driver is probably not installed. check in control panel if your computer has detectde your wireless network card. got ot control panel then system then device manager and look for network adapters.make sure that wireless network card is installed there withot exclamation mark. if not present then reinstall the driver by using the driver disk that came with the system or going to the website http://consumersupport.lenovo.com. if installed, then try perssing Fn+F6 to enable/disbale your wireless card.
IF APPLICABLE WITH FUNCTION KEYS, THERE WILL A SYMBOL OF WIRELESS NETWORK ON THE KEY. PRESS FN WITH THE KEY WHICH SHOWS THE SYMBOL. IF CANT WORK, THEN LOOK FOR THE SWITCH...STILL CNT...THEN GO TO DEVICE MANAGER, LOOK UNDER DEVICES, AND CHECK IF WIRELESS NETWORK IS DIABLED, ENABLE IT..STILL CNT THEN CHECK UR DRIVERS FOR WIRELESS DEVICE AND RE-INSTALL IT..
Have you tried restoring the computer back a couple of days to see if that clears up the hardware hiccup? You can also go to device manager and uninstall the device and delete the drivers. Turn the laptop off, take the wireless card out. Start the laptop back up and boot it fully....After a few, shut down again. Install the wireless card and restart the laptop. When asked to install the drivers for new device found, say ok, make sure you are online with an ethernet line so windows can go online and load the newest drivers unless you have them on your C drive already.
Windows XP Media Center Edition (MCE) does not normally say cable unplugged. I think you are looking at your Local Area Network (LAN) connection. Make sure your wireless card drivers are installed, and the device is enabled.
1. Click Start
2. Right Click My Computer
3. Click Manage
4. Select Device Manager in Left Column of Newly Opened Window.
Make sure your wireless card does not have a yellow caution sign on it, and make sure your wireless card also does not have a red X. (If you when you select device manager, no devices show that right away, then it should be ok)
If there is a yellow caution sign, you may need to install drivers or your device is having some sort of issue.
If there is a red 'X' on the device, right click the device, and select enable. Again verify there is no caution sign.
Make sure your wireless radio is also turned on.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Netgear wpn511 computer not detecting mccree08 on Nov 26, 2008 i have an acer aspire 5315 notebook 3 months old i purchased a netgear wpn 511 rangemax wireless card to help with my signal.the software installed fine but when i look in the device drivers i dont see the card as if the computer isnt recognizing it. there are also no lights on the card when plugged in. is my express card slot not working? • Wednesday, August 05, 2009 09:55 Hello mccree08,
The installed network adapters can be viewed in the windows device manager which can be accessed through the windows control panel as follows:
•Opening the Control Panel The Windows Control Panel can be opened by: Selecting Start > Control Panel (on Windows Vista) - OR - Start > Run > Type 'Control' and select OK (on Windows XP)
•In the Control Panel, Select Device Manager
•In Device Manager, Select 'Network Adapters'
The netgear wpn 511 adapter will appear there if it is correctly installed.
If this solution is helpful please click 'YES' by 'Was this helpful?' below.
Make sure you enable the wireless card in device manager.
and also check the wireless card switch (switch it to enable/disable wireless card) on the front (close to headphone jack). If it isnot working, it's something wrong with your wireless card.
Have you tried looking in your device manager to see if all is ok in there. If your PCMCIA port isn't working maybe it can be fixed from the device manager. Could just need the driver updated. I hope this problem works out asap for you.
