Wireless Network Card Problem

Hi everybody


I just bought a Lenovo T410i with windows 7. The computer has been turned on for less than 24 hours when the wireless internet connection suddently is disconnected. I have tried to deactivate and activate the wireless connection several times, restartet the computer, restoring the computer to a point in time where the connection was still on, and finally I have tried to remove the network card wireless driver and reinstall it. None the less the problem still remains and I am without wireless internet connection.


When i run the network diagnostic program it tells me that the problem is that the Wireless communication is switched off and that the problem isn't solved. This is great information if one hadn't already figured that out, but it does not tell me how to solve the problem, so in a sense it is pretty useless. I've have also tried to use the help and support function, which does not give any anwsers either.


Does anyone know how to fix this problem? I would really appreciate any sort of help.

In advance - thanks!


Best, Mille
