You will need to check that the router is on first, then go to the internet settings on your computer, if the wi-fi doesnt show up try and SCAN so your computer will look for it. When it is found you will need to give it a password and then its ready to go
IBM load there own set of software on there notebooks which take care of networking lan and wi-fi, I have found if try to use the windows native wireless checker it does not pick the networks up. Try using the IBM program either in the taskbar near the clock or in the start menu.
Also in Device Manager does the wi-fi device show up.
There also may be a light that indicates wi-fi is on on at the front or or above the keyboard if its off let me know.
Other possibility is to uninstall the driver for the wireless device restart and let it reinstall automatically.
Let’s check the Wi-Fi card on your PC. Go to "Device Manager" and look if any yellow or red alerts are being displayed under the Network Adaptors. If not, make sure the Wi-Fi card shows up under Network Adaptors. To access the "Device Manager" go to the 'Control Panel", "Administrative Tools", "Computer Management" and select "Device Manager" located in the left side column. If there is an alert, double click on that device to determine the problem, i.e.… device not configured, cannot start this device, etc… Your responses are intended to improve the level of service provided.

Goto - Control Panel - System - Device Manager - Network Adaptors. It will list any network device installed. Right click the wireless device then click properties.This will then tell you if it is working properly and if the driver needs updating. Also it will tell you if the device has been disabled or not,if so just enable it
