Re: wireless problem

Not all wireless networks can be "seen'. This is because they are not broadcasting the SSID. This is done for security reasons. In order to connect to a wireless network, there are three things that one typically needs: 1) SSID. This is a name for the wireless network. You may not always be able to see this, as it is a common security practice to not broadcast this out. Even if it is not broadcast, you will still be able to connect to it. 2) Encryption type. There are several flavors out there, including the option of none at all. The key here is that this setting must be EXACLTLY the same on both the laptop and accesspoint for proper communications. 3) Encryption key. Again, this must be EXACTLY the same on both ends. Finally, make sure you are in range. Depending on the wireless technology in use, the effective range may not be more than a 100 feet. While initially configuring wireless, it is best to be as close as possible to the access point, and then slowly move away to find the outward bounds of the access point's communication range.

Re: wireless problem

First thing I'd do is disable security(enable after connection is fixed) then remove all network drivers that arent being used at the time(uninstall). Next turn off the "Let Windows connect wireless network". I have had better luck with the wireless network adapters connection manager opposed to Windows. Good Luck.

I have spilled water on my laptot and the keyboard doesn't work anymore. I have connected an external keyboard now however, I cant switch on the wireless capability. Does anyone know a way to do t


There may be a switch on the side of the laptop that turns the wireless on and off. Also try pressing and holding the fn key and pressing and releasing f1 or f2. The water spill may have killed the wireless card also. If you still can't get it working, then purchase an inexpensive usb wireless adapter. This will plug into an available usb port and will give you wireles capabilities. You will need to replace the keyboard as well as it was obviously damaged by the spill. Check on ebay, or contact the manufacturer for a replacement.

Hope this helps!

Have re-installed win xp on an IBM T42 laptop, but can not access the internet to update drivers ect

1. if you have wireless, purchase or borrow an add on usb wireless stick. this will allow you to access the internet and add in your missing drivers. 2. or add in a pci card that has ethernet connection to get your drivers. 3. use someone elses computer and download the drivers from the IBM site, put them on a usb stick and then apply them to your unit, (ie more the ethernet driver as a primary and then you can download the remaining ones as you go after it is working. hope this helps.

Cant connect wireless

If the stick is the solution, why are you avoiding the solution?

From what you have said, the internal wifi in the Evo doesn't work, while
an external usb stick does.

Assuming that your internal wifi is properly configured and functional, it is
incapable of picking up your home wifi signal, though it might be functional in other situations ... Buying an external usb stick gives you a better antenna position and takes nothing away from your system, while adding functionality and sheilding the innards of your system from viral
attack as a first line of attack that is detachable.

Buy the USB stick.

You should be able to use any usb wireless network adapter, or any cardbus type II wireless adapter. BUT if you are running windows 98 or ME or an older version than xp... before you purchase one, go to the manufacturer site and be sure that there are drivers for the version of windows that you are running. Here is what to look for and a link to some items that may work.
