hi Deathwhisper,


Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.


When you try to connect to your wireless network and you get an error "Windows was unable to connect", can you try this article -  Fix “Windows is Unable to Connect to the Selected Network”


As for the "Wimax is not ready" error, you may get this if you don't have an Intel WiFi / WiMax capable device.


To find out the brand of your WiFi adapter:

1. Press the Windows Key+R and type devmgmt.msc

2. Expand the Network Adapter Area and locate the brand of your WiFi adapter


If you don't see any Intel WiFi adapter, you can safely uninstall the Wimax driver.
