Lenovo T61 cannot recognize internal Wireless Card

I recently purchased a Lenovo T61 with pre-installed Intel 4965agn wireless card. Within a day, I was getting these 1802 errors when I booted up the machine. Something saying that installed mini pcie card is not compatible, please remove the card and restart the machine. I flashed the BIOS to the latest one (Dated 6/3/08) and everything was working fine, for about another day. Then the wireless card seemed to have disappeared. I do not see the icon on the tray anymore for Wireless and I cannot see the wireless card in the Device Manager. Any ideas?

Just ensure the wireless switch is turned on and if under warranty get it back to Lenovo. It trly sounds like a flakey/failing card.

I've talked to Lenovo and they are sending me another Wireless Card. I'll let you know what happens in a couple days.

Actually, if this machine is using different software than the Windows default, this may also be your problem. IBM uses the Access connections to manage the wireless networks AND the adapter. I remember a user having the same problem and I found a setting that had turned the radio off, which in turn disables the wireless connection and removes the icon from the connections. Poke around in Access connections and look for a setting that says "Radio OFF" or the like. I can't remember exactly where it was.

Thanks Johnjces. It turned out to be the card. After installing the new one they sent me, it worked perfectly.
