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

What kind of wireless router do I buy for the IBM ThinkPad?


Hi Rose,
It basically depends on the WLAN Card that your IBM ThinkPad has in it.
I would suggest you to go for Linksys G Router.

I do not think there is a switch, however some of the T40's came without a wireless card installed, but was optional. Here are the part numbers if you need them to order one. 39T0071
39T0077
93P3483

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 -
