Assuming you're running XP, here's your wireless driver:

 

 http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-59438

 

After downloading it, you must unpack it from C>Drivers>Win>Wlanint.

 

Hope this helps. 

Cheers,

George

Perhaps the first thing needed here is either some help with english translation, or perhaps just some more careful reading. Some of the reasons why I don't know how to help you are....

 

1. This section is for Tseries, specifically T61 and prior models but you report having a B series

2. When it said to turn on your device, did you turn the switch on?  (assuming the B series alos has a switch)

3. You said you checked the drives and there are no wifi...   I should hope not, disc drives are different pieces of hardware, wifi cards aren't drives. This is either a typo, or a serious misunderstanding of something, so you need to clarify.

4. You want instructions to download a missing wifi card???  you need to purchase one and install it, it's a piece of hardware, not software you can download.If you don't have a wifi card you cannot install drivers. If you do have the device installed properly, and the master switch is in the "on" position, then you can find help with installing the software in the section of the forum that deals with the B series laptops.

 

Good Luck
