Go to the Device Manager to find if there is a network adapter that includes “wireless” in the name under “Network adapters”.
Note: Click on the Start button on your computer and type “device manager” in the search box. Then you can locate the Device Manager.
If your Lenovo laptop or desktop doesn’t have a wireless network adapter, you can purchase one from electronics stores or online. The USB wireless LAN network card is a good choice, because it can be moved around to different computers.
Make sure the wireless network adapter or the USB wireless network card is correctly installed on your Lenovo computer. You can try to install a correct wireless network driver for it.
