Ensure that the wireless network adapter is enabled. You can get there from My Network Places ' Properties or the control panel. If it is enabled, you should have an icon in the systray for the wireless adapter. Right click on the icon and select View Wireless Networks to select a wireless network to connect to.
Some systems come with a Wireless Radio switch to disable the
wireless radios. The wireless radio switch is usually located on the
front side of the machine. If you are having difficulties with wireless
connections, make sure the Wireless Radio switch is set in the On
The little icon on the task bar is not always an accurate and reliable indicator of the status of your connection. If you are having occasional dropouts of signal, try repositioning your laptop either closer to the wireless transmitter or in a more direct, line-of-sight position. Sometimes it becomes necessary to install a wireless "extender" which boosts the signal to enable you to stay connected, especially if there are several other wireless networks within range of your machine.
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.
check in device manager to see if its enabled and have drivers installed.some wifi are installed without a wireless manager and connect to first available(strongest)network.
go into control panel ,administrative tools,sevices and scroll down to wireless zero config and start.
then when you click on wireless icon you will have choices of connections(AP'S)(access points)
HP and Compaq have several models with issues regarding startup and also losing the wireless adapter. They are offering one time fixes for free even if out of warranty. Go to their web page and go to the support page and start a live chat to get this resolved. My wife has the same model with the starup problem. We contacted them about 3 days ago and just got the shipping box. Give it a try and good luck
Please make sure that the wireless antenna switch is on. Then enable the wireless feature using the hot key combination for your laptop (if available but need not be done since you were able to detect networks earlier). If you are using Vista, please click on Start-Connect to to see if your laptop is now able to detect networks. If laptop is not able to detect any networks, please uninstall the wireless network adapter by going to Start - Control Panel - Classic View - Device Manager - Network Adapters - select the one for the Wireless Network Adapter - properties - driver tab - uninstall - ok. Then please restart your laptop. Click on Start - Connect to and see if your laptop is now able to detect networks. If laptop is still not able to detect wireless networks, please click on Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore then choose a restore point (date) which is a possible time when your laptop was able to detect wireless networks. Laptop will restart automatically and notify you if the restoration is completed. Try Start - Connect to. Hope it works this time. Thank you.
I think you have answered your own problem, your wireless has possibly been zapped. To test your ethernet adapter on your laptop connect it to a network hub, check the hub and see if you have a link light on the hub and or laptop.. To test your wireless router, connect it to a known working computer with a network card and check the router configuration, using the browser, if you cannot access it then its zapped.
You need first to check if the wireless adapter is installed properly, Ricght click My computer>Properties>Hardware tab>Device manager>look for network adapter and check if the wireless adapter is listed if its there right click on it and go to properties and check the device status..
If the adapter is not showing under network adapter look for anything that says Unknown or other device and you that's where you can find a improper installed device you just need to install the driver for that.
