hi all, i'm using a lenovo 3000 N200, i usually connect to the inter-webs via my wireless router all the time. however, since yesterday, suddenly my wireless adaptor refuses to connect properly. I have re-entered my wep pass word, restarted the router everything.
what worries me is that the other laptops in my house are not having this issue. only the lenovo is. AND it was working fine before, nothng has changed. I have tried seraching on this forum, but I can't seem to find anyone that has managed to resolve this. Or has everyone decided to regress back to ethernet cables

Just in case, i get the asked the same questions...
1. my wireless adaptor is definately swticed on (the icon is illuminated)
2. My wiress adaptor is enabled
3. I have tried fn+F5 (it only serves to access the wireless client panel (like a shortcut))
4. Device shows that my wireless adaptor is working perfectly
in fact it's to be noted that everything was OK, until yesterday / or day before

Mine does the same thing. It spends a long time 'detecting proxy settings' is the mesage I get.
Make google your home page (theres less to intially load and can be quicker).
I ended up selecting the default for everything; browser, router, antivirus, and it still takes along time for that first page to load.
If you have verizon DSL you might want to write a bat to ping a site repeatedly just to keep the dsl 'awake'.
Here's one to ping yahoo help site 99,999 times, with 1472 (max) bytes.
ping 188.8.131.52 -n 99999 -l 1472
It's a lenovo....good luck.

has anyone managed to resolve this?
Why does the Lenovo wireless REFUSE to connect to my router?
it was working fine before one night, and the next morning it just refused to connect.
What could have happened over night?
Has anyone else experianced the same thing??
