Macbook13 from NBF gets kudos for pointing this out.

Lenovo has this application to have an client Utility for their WLAN cards and other devices.

It also supports Atheros WLAN cards and it works fine in Windows 7 x64 as I have just tested.

To fix error at booting in to Windows:

Actually found a workaround for the startup error, apparently its the ACTray.exe causing this error. To fix it remove it from the startup programs.

I'm not sure what is lost with this not running, but it still seems to function fine for my purposes even without this.

Why does it say "Acces Connection can not run on this platform"?

I'm getting the same error message at startup, :) though I'm able to run the "Access Connections" utility without a problem. :unsure:

And can connect to the internet by either the ethernet Lan adapter OR by the WiFi adapter. :P

You may want to to download the latest drivers for your wifi card at

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?doctypeind=9&template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FdownloadsDriversLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo

And a link to the latest version of the "Access Connections" utility and help info at

http://www.pc.ibm.com/us/think/thinkvantagetech/accessconnections.html.

I haven't read the material on the "Access Connections" site yet, but thought I'd share the resource.

And a great forum for anyone with questions about ThinkPad technology: http://forum.thinkpads.com/index.php. :)
