Question about IBM ThinkPad A21m 2628 Notebook
Look in the mini-pci slot on the back of your computer (1 screw opens the compartment) and make sure you have the 10/100 ethernet & 56k combo modem & that both plugs are firmly seated in their ports on the mini-pci card.
sometimes there is just a 56k modem card installed, in which case you will not have ethernet high speed internet capability.
Easy to tell which mini-pci card you have.
1. The ethernet/modem combo has two ports on the card (wide for ethernet & skinny for modem) to connect to the corresponding two wires coming from the motherboard.
2.The modem alone one only has one skinny port available on the card .
