Well, nothing in the firmware release notes:

Which model Lenovo? I had some similar oddities with a new T60 laptop
and Intel 3945abg with Proset version something. I just couldn't get
a connection on some wireless routers. I was fairly sure it was the
laptop as 6 other laptops (including 3 of mine) worked perfectly.
After much tinkering and updating from the IBM/Lenovo web pile, I went
to the Intel web site, download the latest Proset version, and lived
happily ever after:
I don't know what model Lenovo you have or what card is inside, but
this might apply.
If not, try the laptop with other access points, and try other laptops
with this particular access point. The idea is to isolate the problem
in either the laptop or the access point.
