Lenovo R60 Laptop Wireless connectivity Lost

Posted on 2011-03-10
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have a Lenovo R60 Laptop that is running Windows 7 Pro.  It works perfectly, except that all of a sudden the computer will not recognize wireless signals.  I use the laptop with a wireless network both at home and at work, and it shows no connection in either location (the internet connection works fine with an ethernet cable).  I've tried all the trouble shooting I can think of.  Any suggestions?

The computer came with Windows XP.  I upgraded to Windows 7 Pro.  But it's been working fine since I upgraded about two months ago.

So I assume you use the Lenovo software to control the wireless?  If so did you go to Lenovo and download the upgrade version?

If it worked two months ago. Then it could be a driver corruption.
Check your device manager is there an issue there...

I would
1) try to reinstall drivers.
2) restore to an earlier date when the machine was working fine.

I already tried system restore, which didn't work.  I'll get busy on the drivers and see if that works.  Where do I get the drivers?
