I have a thinkpad t450 which was running Windows 10 previously. After so many faults and discomforts caused by win 10 i decided to install Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. However, after installing my thinkpad's internet access indicator just has an "x" red. I have tried to install the wireless driver downloaded in the Lenovo support centre but it does not work. Is there any help? I would really appreciate.

Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
I would say, it's a driver problem. I have recognized a similar behaviour with an old RTL card/driver. The driver won't work whilst the other LAN network adapter works fine. Then I have had the red x in my taskbar status area whilst the LAN was connected. It was not sufficient to deactivate the LAN adapter with the faulty driver.
I was able to solve it uninstalling the driver (I checked the option to remove the driver from my disk).
Realtek Wireless LAN Driver (Win 7 64bit)
Intel Wireless LAN (Win 7 64bit)
did you tried to rewind to a system restore point?
Let us know how you get on.
