For some reason the wireless Capability is turned off sometimes,
when I tried to search for wireless networks, it said that no networks are found even though I turned my wireless adapter on. When diagosed, it says that my wireless capability is turned off.
This happens randomly and I don't know what is wrong,
can somebody help?

I had the same problem. Here's how I solved it.
- Press the blue ThinkVantage key
- From "Resource Center" menu, click "Wireless" and then "Find Wireless Networks". The Access Connections window will pop up
- Go to "Options" tab and uncheck the "Allow the wireless LAN radio to be turned off when inactive." box

The lesson here is that you can only have one wireless client software active.
If you want to use Windows to manage wireless, then uninstall Access Connections.
If you want to use Access Connections, don't create wireless connections through Windows, use Access Connections. When Access Connections attempts to connect, it automatically turns on the wireless radio. Windows wireless does not.

Thanks so much this had been happening to me as well and i finally searched how to fix it and found this! Something similar also happened on another computer of mine and i found it was because the wifi card would turn off if it wasnt in use - in case anyone is stil having problems, go to the device manager and click on the properties of the wifi card and check the power management tab.

I have the same problem, but I have a t500. Nothing I do fixes it, but a reboot.

Mine just did it again.. I know it is not power related, because it does it while I am working. I try turning my switch off and back on, I try disconecting and reconnecting, nothing works. :\ Reboot fixed it though...
