Can't set up wireless connection

Just got refurbished T43 with no user manual. It won't connect to my wireless router. Is there a switch or something on the laptop that needs to be on? If so where?

On IBM laptops, you have to hold "FN" key and push the function key that has the wieless icon on it.

Not secured


Log on to your wireless router and set a password. Look up the user manual to know how to connect to the user interface through your browser (webGUI) and what the default username and password combination is (if you haven't changed this).

some portable devices do not like certain WEP modes on routers. also some may be able to see the wireless network but cannot connect because of the format is either wireless "G" or "B" or wireless "N" the latter of which you won't be able to connect to because of the format. check your devices for wireless type "G" only or "B" only or "N" only connections. aslo check for WEP type allowed as well!
Wireless "N" and the "Super-G" are the newest wireless routering devices you must check for compatibility issues. this information may be found in your user's manuals for your devices.

How do i set a password


Router's password could mean 2 things. First password for you to open router's configuration page or password for you to connect wireless to your router.

Configuration's password:
-Logon to your router configuration page
-Please to the TOOLS and ADMIN Tab. You there you can change the admin user name and password. If you do not have the user name and password, please check for the default user name and password on the router's manual. If default user name and password won't work reset the router. Press and hold down the reset button or pinhole on the back of the router for 10 seconds. Then re-enter user name and password again. It should work this time.

Wireless Security Password:

-Logon to your router configuration page
-Under SETUP and Wireless Settings tab you will get an option to change the wireless password

I re-installed XP T43 laptop and my wireless does not work


First thing is to check if the wireless device is working. Go to Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device Manager. Click on Network Adapters. Do you see the the Wireless card?
If not in Control Panel click on Network Connections, do you see a Wireless Connection? If not you need to install the correct wireless network driver, Check the IBM site again, there should be another wireless driver (there are a couple of different wireless card installed on T40 series ThinkPads).
THEN
If you succeed in installing the wireless driver and it is enabled.
Then click Control Panel - click on Network Connections - right click on the Wireless Networl Connection - Click on Properties and check if TCP/IP has been installed, if not install it. Check TCP/IP properties - make sure it is set to Obtain an address automatically and Obtain DNS Server address automatically.

Check the wireless settings on your other laptops, use this information to configure the wireless on the T43, ie the SSID, WEP or WAP settings

You should be able to connect to your wireless router and Internet now - let me know how it goes,

Trouble with wireless card


Something has gone wrong with your internet home connection--obviously nothing is the matter with your wireless connectivity hardware. You should reconfigure your home wireless connection. Follow the directions in Vista or XP help to set up a new home wireless connection. There are various ways to do this, such as through a router. If you have a home wireless router, be sure to set it for WEP incryption, or your neighbors will be able to get on your internet free.
