    Have enable the Ethernet LAN on the Bios, first of all I would like to suggest you make sure this and after that let me know the issue. To enable the Ethernet LAN on BIOS restart the system and after that press the F1 during the startup. Now you will get the BIOS windows and under that select SECURITY and press enter. Now select the I/O PORT ACCESS and here make sure you have enabled the Ethernet LAN.

    I think you’re getting this issue due to the Wifi drivers and so therefore I would like to suggest you to make updated the Wifi drivers and after that let me know the issue. To update the Wifi drivers go to the start and after that make click on the run. Now on the run type: devmgmt.msc and after that click on the ok button. Now you will get the device manger and under that locate to the Wifi drivers and after that make right click on the Wifi drivers and then select the updat3ed driver. Now once you finish the updated and after that reboot the system for best result.

    Re: No network connection on Lenovo ThinkPad T500

    I think you’re getting this issue due to Insufficient Wi-Fi Network Range and Power. There is lots of other issue to face this issue like: firstly Corrupted or incompatible drivers, if you have installed the Corrupted or incompatible drivers for WIFI and then you get this issue and so therefore make sure you have not installed the Corrupted or incompatible drivers. Secondly missing updates, so therefore I would like to suggest you to make sure you have updated everything on your system and after that let me know the issue. thirdly the issue on Network connection settings and I think you have done something wrong with your setting of the network connection and so therefore your getting this issue and so I would like to suggest you to make sure you have proper setting on network connection. Fourthly the Hardware or software problems like Insufficient Wi-Fi Network Range and Power, Unknowingly Connecting to the Wrong Wi-Fi Network, Incompatible Software Packages Installed, Overloading / Overheating the Wireless Access Point, Wi-Fi Radio Interference and etc. so therefore I would like to suggest you to make sure all this and after that your issue will get solved.

    I would like to suggest you to make sure you have switched on the network adapter in your laptop and after that let me know the issue. Most of the time I have seen most people have this type issue and they physical switch somewhere on the top near to network adapter button and so due to that your network adapter gets turn off or on and so therefore I would like suggest you to check out the network adapter turns on or off. Normally there is sign light on the laptop that illustrate and this light shows wireless network adapter is enabled.

    The loose of the Ethernet cables, DSL or cable connections, telephone cords, USB cables, or power cables will affect on the network and internet connection issue and so therefore I would like to suggest you to make sure you’re not facing this type of issue. Make sure all of these connections to make sure they are properly associated. This part mainly concern to wired networks, other than if you're attempting to hook up wirelessly to your own home wireless network, you supposed to make sure the modem and cabling to the modem.
