✔ Best Answer

First make sure the wireless adapter is NOT turned off (read your laptop instructions). If you are sure it is turned on, try re-installing the driver for your wireless adapter. You can download it from the Lenovo website:

USA: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/

UK: http://support.lenovo.com/en_GB/def...

Or select your country at top of page.

If none of the above fixes the problem, the wireless adapter may be faulty. Look in Device Manager to see if it is listed there. If it isn't listed then it's faulty.

Once you have the adapter showing when you do a ipconfig /all you will see the mac address listed as the "physical address" in the ipconfig output.

BTW there is no "need for MAC id " when joining a wifi network so this bit you are confused about.

if the router is setup to do mac filtering this mac address has to be entered into the router before you can get wifi access.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
