After installing Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bits on my new S206, the operating system does not recognize wireless device. Any suggestions?
(I'm not a novice, but I spent a few good hours on this issue already and didn't make any progress whatsoever
Need your help!
Thanks in advance.

did you format your HDD using GPT instead of MBR? Then you might have the same bug your predecessor S205 suffered from. In GPT formatted HDDs WLAN Chips are only being recognized after you installed (and started!) the Lenovo Energy Management (I am not sure about the exact right name at the moment). It might work with your S206 aswell.

Please Check under Device manager
Under Network adpter it should show Broadcom 802.11 /
11b/g/n Wireless, Realtek Wireless or Atheros Wireless,,
Check for any Device under device manager that has a yellow Symbol, like an exlamation mark sign,
It should say Network Controller
>if this is the case, Download a Driver from Lenovo Support Website,
-If there is no such Icons-
Check Your BIOS Settings,
Keep on hitting F2 right after you power on the system, This should boot you to BIOS
Go to Configuration TAB and look for Wireless Option and Make sure it is enabled
hit F10 to Save your changes and Exit
Hope this helps,
