Try going into the Device Manager and making sure the Wireless Adapter is enabled. Click Start > Control Panel > System. Click the Hardware tab then click the Device Manager button. Now click the Plus [+] next to Network adapters then double-click the wireless adapter which is probably the Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection which will open the Properties dialog. Ensure the Device status reads, "This device is working properly" and Device usage shows "Use this device (enable)." If either the Device status or Device usage shows anything other than what is shown above, first try to change the Device usage, which should change the Device status. Now try again to use your wireless adapter. You might need to press Fn + F5 to turn the device on.

Ican not locate a switch for wireless network for my ibm thinkpad T43


IBM T43-----Keyboard combination-----Fn + F5-----Click "Turn On"

If you can't find it as a function key and it isn't a hardware switch along the front or side edge, you can always turn off wifi in network and sharing by going to adapter settings or use device manager to disable the device via control panel or computer management.

T43 Lower Touchpad Not Function


Thinkpad Fn+X drivers are needed, or someone removed the resident routines.

For example my T41 has 5 thinkpad drivers for full thinkpad functionality, e.g. wireless connection, A/C monitor in the tray, as well as the Fn+X keys, mute, etc:

This is from my registry

"BMMMONWND"="rundll32.exe C:\\PROGRA~1\\ThinkPad\\UTILIT~1\\BatInfEx.dll,BMMAutonomicMonitor"
"BMMLREF"="C:\\Program Files\\ThinkPad\\Utilities\\BMMLREF.EXE"
"ACWLIcon"="C:\\Program Files\\ThinkPad\\ConnectUtilities\\ACWLIcon.exe"
"ACTray"="C:\\Program Files\\ThinkPad\\ConnectUtilities\\ACTray.exe"
"NPDTRAY"="C:\\PROGRA~1\\ThinkPad\\UTILIT~1\\NPDTray.exe"


I don't know what your background is, but this just indicates what is INSTALLED, not how to fix it - you need to "get" the drivers and THEN your registry (an advanced topic) will have these and they will work.

IBM t43 fn f5 does not toggle wireless on. Reinstalled windows last week and wireless adapter is not recognized. I loaded proper drivers, but the adapter is not even seen by the operating system.


There are 2 wireless cards for this model. Be sure you have the correct one. Here is a link to download both of them: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-58597.html#wireless
