atifsh,

I posted several days ago the same question, I think: I installed a clean legal Vista business and the wifi board is not recognized. I plan to download some drivers that are NOT in the ThinkVantage set and try to wake up the Intel ABGN card. I'll post later tonight about that.I was hoping someone could point me to the right driver.

 

Did you install a "new" (non-Lenovo) Vista OS? Which drivers did not work?

My solution was different, or at least my hoped-for solution... I decided that the performance benfit promised with a clean Vista re-install is NOT worth the aggravation and extra time spent coaxing the laptop back to full function. You invest hours to save seconds. So I am going back to the factory setup, because I only installed a few apps and had had trouble right away with the WiFi and other functions.

 

Now I hope that a recovery wipe - when they get me the right discs that were not included (bad packing process!) - does wake up the board in my tablet. 

 

Good luck with your issue.
