Hi. I have found solve for this problem.
Download drivers for rtl8192ce for example hier: http://download.wireless-driver.com/driver/Realtek/RTL8192CE-VA4/rtl8192ce_linux_2.6.0005.1116.2010.tar.gz
then extract it open terminal and change to the extracted directory. And then...
sudo su
make
make install
reboot

It works! Good luck!

I think this bug should be closed. Everything works fine on Thinkpad now out of the box. Last comment from 12.02.2011 is also a tipp how to fix. That driver is allredy a part of linux kernel I think.
