Can someone please help with my below problem?
Till few minutes back I am able to access internet wireless, but for the last 30 mins, wireless internet is not working. I restarted my computer but not working still. Not sure what went wrong..I am sure I didnt do anything unsual.
I am using Linksys WRT54GS router. Internet connection works just fine if I directly connect my laptop to the router. I tried to troubleshoot the problem with the help of Linksys-EasyLink Advisor, but it keeps telling me that 'wireless network adapter or card of my computer is turned on'. I did fn+F5 on my laptop and it says my wireless network adapter is enabled. I disabled it and enabled it back, but still I can't connect to my wireless network. Did you face this problem? I think the router is working fine, but there is some problem in my notebook. Running virus scan now just to see if this is because of some virus/worm.
Any brains out there who want to suggest me something?Thanks in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I have a brand new Y430, purchased 2 weeks ago.
One solution is creating a profile to connect to your router in the "Lenovo ReadyComm 4.0" application. This will provide the automatic reconnection on boot or comming out of a hibernate state.
Within Lenovo ReadyComm 4.0:
Select "Search WLan," and follow the quick wizard. (this will ask the security mode and password)
Repost if u have further difficulty, the only problem you should have is entering in the wrong security mode, other than that you all set within a few moments.
I've read of another solution of uninstalling the ReadyComm application, and windows will solely manage the reconnection but i havent tested this as this first solution worked just fine and i dont mind the readycomm app.
**Sorry, if it still doesnt work you may have messed up the driver/configuration onboard the notebook, a simple reinstall will refresh this back to normal. (D: should contain initial drivers)

Thanks for the suggestion. I called up the customer care and they asked me to uninstall ReadyComm and it solved the problem!!! strange, but it's true. Now I have to always connect to the network manually...I can live with it..

Take at look at:
Start / Control Panel / Network and sharing center / Manage Wireless connections /
At this point right click on YOUR connection and go to Properties.
Check the first box for "Connect automatically when this network is in range" is it checked? if not, Check IT and hit OK.
With ReadyComm uninstalled, this should restore the connection to reconnect properly.
Let us know if it actually behaves properly.

Great. It's a funny solution. After uninstalling Lenovo Readycomm 4.0 and enabling Wireless Network through Windows, I can able to connect to it.
Even my wireless network was slow. Right now there is not any problem of slow speed. Let's see.
Why Lenovo is providing this software then? They have to find a solution for it. If they want to update this, my company is ready to take challange to make it proper.
Thanks and Regards,
