Well revisting your original post as everything else connects up and it doesn't matter if it is 7 OS or not because my XP and Vista fixes and the Ubuntu boots all hook up to the netthe fact is that Lenovo is just not going to play fair.

I can't remember asking but have you got all drivers up to date? especially the network adaptors?

If this machine is under warranty then perhaps it is worth getting something done with it.

Now having said the above about Ubuntu I think it is worth a try and for the cost of a blank DVD a boot into Ubuntu would see if you can connect to the net because I have dome this many times before when I have fixes or my own machines playing silly blighters.

So as there is nothing to lose (except your sanity)

To get Ubuntu download it from here Download Ubuntu Desktop | Ubuntu - save to D: (optical drive) then open D: and right click on the download insert a blank disk and > Burn Disk Image

Then set the machine BIOS to boot from the optical insert the disk into the optical drive and then Save and exit the BIOS the Ubuntu will boot up and give two options try or install - USE TRY when in the front screen double click the Fire fox icon on the left if it connects to the net then there is something wrong like I said with the 7 OS install.

NB The pic is one I did for someone else but will be the same that you see I'll add the next pic to let y seee what else you can do
