If you are installing an external wireless card, there should be a set of instructions that came with the card. Those should be your guidelines.
If you got one from a friend/neighbor, follow these steps:
1) Insert the card into the PCMIA slot 2) Let the computer recognize there is a new hardware.
3) download the driver from the cd, or go to its manufacturer's website to download the driver for the wireless card. If it is Linksys, go to linksys.com, belkin, belkin.com, etc.
After that, the card and windows should automatically detect your network settings, and you can enjoy the internet from there

I have a thinkpad 2373, which is 3 years old. I can get activated the wireless function


Try installing the latest wireless card drivers.
The same model ThinkPadcan have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless youknow exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download allthe drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download thedrivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a recordof which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files arelocated on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEBsite - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista devicedrivers for your model computer, Use this link: - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true You can download thevarious drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, theywill then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\drivers Then install thevarious drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).

The T42 ThinkPad does not have a wireless switch. When the wireless driver is installed then the wireless card is automatically switched on.

Ibm will not reconize the new battery


Hi,
If it is not a IBM/Lenovo official battery, it's normal behavior, usually Thinkpad hardware sold on ebay is " Standard compatible hardware " And Thinkpad hardly works with no IBM hardware for: memory, battery, inverter, wireless built in card. Unfortunatly... Thanks and have a nice day J -

Wireless without a cable


Some T40 series (especially T42) laptops have built-in wireless cards and you only need to install the wireless driver.
If you don't have a built in wireless card you can purch a PCMCIA wireless card and inset it into the PCMCIA slot on the laptop.
These cards are common and are available from several manufactories such as Netgear and DLink.
