The problem you seem to be having is from incorrect drivers. Finding the correct driver for your hardware can be a bit difficult some times.
For this I would recommend a Google search for "driver doctor". The first link should take you to the page that tells you about the program. This program scans your hardware and provides drivers from the manufactures site for the specific hardware you have installed.
The downside to this is that you have to pay (I am not sure how much, but I think it is somewhere around $20 - $40).

Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "LenovoSupport" or "IBM Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the drivers.
Have you installed the audio driver? If not you need to install the audio driver and any other devices that has not been installed. The same model ThinkPad can have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless you know exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download all the drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download the drivers, write down the device driver and it’s file name so you have a record of which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files are located on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device drivers for your model computer, Use this link: - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true You can download the various drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, they will then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\drivers Then install the various drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).

you should be able to use a driver from any computer maker aslong as it is a broadcom 80211g vista driver.Have you tried letting windows search for new drivers through the device manager.other onother option get an expresscard or usb device like linksys or belkin network adapter.
On Dell computers it is rare that the XP install disk properly reinstalls your Network Card drivers. If you have the Device Drivers CD that came with your dell (usually a blue or gray disk) you can install the drivers (usually a Broadcom or Intel NIC /LAN or Network Interface driver) then your PC can "see" internet connections. The CD will show you all the drivers you can install with a check mark next to each that apply to your system.
If you do not have the CDROM, go to support.dell.com on another PC and enter your system tag# (on the bottom or back) and look in "Network" and find the driver there. There are a few options so you might need to try several drivers till you find the one that works. 90% of Dell pc's come with Broadcom so try that first. save the driver to a disk or flash drive and run it on the PC in question.
You also will likely need drivers for the video card and chipset as well.
when you had the internet installed, did you install the modem software for the modem? without the modem software, the modem cannot find the pc. if the modem connects directly to the pc, or even through a wired/wireless router, the modem software is a requirement. (i just went through all this myself w/ att dsl). if you have, or add, a router, that software will also need to be installed for those on the network to connect to the internet as well.
