Question about IBM ThinkPad T23 2647 Notebook

Can't connect wirelessly through IBM T23 with XP

I have an IBM T23 running XP which I'd like to set up to connect to the internet wirelessly but I can't figure out how! I bought a bluetooth dongle (as the laptop isn't wireless) and I've spent 10 hours online trying to figure out if I might need drivers or if there's anything I'm missing but I've made no progress. The dongle is working and active but the laptop isn't seeing the wireless router and there doesn't seem to be an option to find it. I can connect to the router wirelessly from another laptop, just not this one. Really I'm looking for advice as to what I should have on the laptop to get it working. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance :)

First you most likly need a wireless card now along with a wirless card youll need a modem card and ethernet card secondly the bluetooth device may not be working out the greatest so if you downt want all the crads I suggest getting a usb wireless connection which is specifaclly for high speed wireless connections. These can be purchased at any computer store.

Am I paying for this already? I need to know how to turn on my wireless on my IBM T42 so I can access the internet and connect to my home network...please advise...


Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device drivers 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 the various drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, they will then unzip and expand into a folder on C:\drivers Then install the various drivers from this folder.
Then you need to connect to a wireless router which is connected to your Internet Service Provider. The wireless card in the Thinkpad needs to be configured with the wireless router's settings (ie SSID, WAP or WEP encryption etc) for the wireless card to communicate with the wireless router.

Wireless disabled


First of all, there's a great 'System Update' utility available on Lenovo's website for all IBM/Lenovo notebooks. Unfortunately they are stuck this month trying to revamp their delivery method, so that's not available until later this month.
So for now, go to Lenovo's device driver matrix, pick your model and reload the wireless AND power management utilities. (quick link: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-57669)
After that there should be an icon in the tray that gives you the option to turn wireless on/off.

Thinkpad T23


I believe the T23 has a built in wireless slot located on the bottom under a panel. If so, you will need to purchase an internal wireless card and download the drivers for it. You can usually get a good deal on one at Ebay. Or, you can go to Walmart and buy a universal wireless card that slides into the bus port or usb port, depending on the card. Walmart sells universal wireless cards for anywhere from $25 to $125, depending on what you want. I suggest the $30 to $40 range, they will work fine for you.

T23 Startup problems


if you tried to install the belkin usb wireless adapter, what might be happening is that the device is searching for the driver and stopping your desktop from loading, so remove the usb dongle and do a system restore to the day before your problem if necassary. Make sure that you install the belkin software first then connect the adapter whe prompted as sometimes the driver can be a bit tricky to install.
