Lenovo 3000 N500 - unable to connect to Wireless Internet

Lenovo N 3000 N500 running Windows Vista Business

I can't connect to wireless internet. The problem is almost same as below. This is what's happening so far...

Using Access Connections, I can use the wireless radio to find the network I want. It's a public wireless connection (in a library). It has signal strength of 60%. This has been more than fine for me in the past. Everyone else is using it so why can't I!?!?!

When I try to connect through Access Connections, I get the following message:
Unable to connect to the selected wireless network. You may need to configure your system to support the authentication method that is in use. Do you want to configure now?
I click Yes, (don't really know what I'm doing at this point so just OK out of that window)
Then it tries to connect. It then goes through Applying wireless settings - OK, then when it says 'waiting for association, it fails.
If I connect through networks, I can connect to the local network only, but not the internet.

What I've tried to fix it (don't even know if any of this is relevant...):

Made sure it's automatically setting IP address.

Switched off Windows Firewall

Boot in safe mode.

Checked the network adapter and it is working properly and has up to date drivers.

In Control Panel- Network connections, under Wireless Network Connections, I've disabled/enabled TCP/IPv6 and TCP/IPv4 in various combinations.

Thought I may as well let the cat have a go at fixing it after all that lot.

Run command prompt as administrator.

ipconfig /release shows: No operation can be performed on Wireless Network connection while

it has its media disconnected

ipconfig /all shows:

Host Name..............Default-PC
Primary Dns Suffix.....:
Node type..............Hybrid
IP Routing Enabled.....No
WINS Proxy Enabled.....No

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection
Pl help asap!

You need to get the wireless authentication details from the library's front desk to configure your wireless connection. They should be able to help you.

Ibm thinkpad 2374 manuals


Does it actually have a wireless network adapter? Check the network adapter settings. Does it show both LAN and wireless? If it does you may need to use one of the Function keys to launch the interface to turn on the wireless.

How to enable bluetooth


Your computer has to have a bluetooth radio. You can check
Control Panel > System and Security > Device Manager
Do you see a Bluetooth Radio listed?

If not, you don't have BlueTooth on your computer so you will have to add a BlueTooth device by plugging one into a USB port.

If you have a BlueTooth radio, go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device and Printers > Add a Bluetooth Device

This option is used to connect a blue tooth device (e.g. bluetooth headphons) to your laptop through your bluetooth radio.

See this Windows web page for more information.
Set up Bluetooth enabled device

I will respond to any additional questions you have.

Removing bluetooth chip


Without knowing what the desktop computer motherboard is, I\'d only be guessing as to location of Wi-Fi chipset.
However even if I knew the motherboard manufacturer name, and model number; the point is Moot.

A) You remove that Wi-Fi chip, and kiss the motherboard goodbye.
It\'s designed into the circuitry of the motherboard.

Isn\'t going to be jumper wires taking it\'s place, and making connections to circuit traces on the motherboard.

B) Do you have a wireless router?
Dunno.
Do you have a wireless connection set up?
No.

You can use just a LAN connection. (Hard wired)

C) Suggest if having a Bluetooth option on your motherboard is not an option then use a different motherboard that doesn\'t have that option.
