Answers :

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.
\015\012If most likely have one, the LAN adapter and a yellow ? against a network adapter - this will be a wireless adapter (its not installed)
\015\012Check your BIOS and make sure the wireless card is enabled.
\015\012You 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.
\015\012When 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.
