If you look down to the bottom right hand side of your screen you should see something that looks like a tv screen or something that says network internet access
take your mouse over to it and click on it to open the box
If your wirless switch is enabled it should show you that you are or are not connected to any particular network or router
If your wireless switch is not enabled please look through your user manual to find which keys to use to enable it
then in that network box please look for the name of your router or network then click on it then go down to connect
If it does not connect automaticly it will ask you for a password
so then you will have to enter the password that you have given it or look at the base of the router as the password may be the one that is written on it
if it still will not connect pleasse go back up to the network that shows the name of your router/network and delete it
then wait a few seconds and windows should pop up a box telling you that wireless network are available please click here
so go back to the network box go up to the name of your network/router that windows have found again
click on it and go down again to click connect and once again if it does not connect within a few mins you may have to enter the password that either you gave it or the no written on the base of the router
if this does not work then you may have to reset your router to do this you must use a ethernet cable plugged into the router and your laptop
then hopefully you will have a router user book to tell you what ip you need to type into your browser to enter the router to reset it
some router ip address are 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.1
if you cannot find the ip address of the router can you ask a friend to look it up on their internet

Are you sure you have a wire card installed? If so, then try this:
Right-click the My Computer icon and select Properties.
Click the Hardware tab and press the Device Manager button. The network card should appear under Network Adapters. Note:
If the card has a exclamation mark over a yellow background, then this
is an indication that the card is experiencing a problem. Go to Driver
download step 5.
Verify that the radio is enabled. It is possible to disable the transmitter of the wireless card without Device Manager showing any problems. Note: Follow the instructions provided to enable wireless card.
wireless cards will put an icon in the system tray (the line of icons
in the lower right corner of your screen). Right click this icon and it
may have a menu option to enable/turn on the wireless radio.
systems come with a Wireless Radio switch to disable the wireless
radios. The wireless radio switch is usually located on the front side
of the machine. If you are having difficulties with wireless
connections, make sure the Wireless Radio switch is set in the On
Check for association to an Access Point.
If you double-click the previously mentioned system tray icon, the
configuration utility of the wireless card will appear. This utility
will be able to show the status of the wireless card, showing what
channel the card is using and what signal strength is being received.
It may be difficult to maintain a connection if signal strength is low
due to either interference or distance. For example, interference can
be caused by 2.4GHz cordless phones, other Access Points in the area,
and physical structures such as load bearing walls or metal partitions.
The utility can be used to configure the wireless card settings, but if
using Windows XP Zero Configuration or Access Connections, you will
need to use those programs to actually configure the wireless card as
they will overwrite the setting of the utility.
If you have a wireless router, the printer will talk to the router and not to the thinkpad. You would have to establish a connection between the printer and the router.
Then share the printer to print.
If you dont have a wireles router and you are trying to connect your thinkpad to the printer directly, the wireless card in the thinkpad should be in the adhoc mode. ( See Wireless card properties )
Hope this helps
PS: Dont forget to rate me if you got your answer.
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).
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,
First make sure you have the latest update for your bios and wireless device, your os is probably non preload so clean any access connections utility provided by ibm, rather than using the ibm thinkvantage access connection make sure to use the windows own utility to control the wireless device
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.
