Need to add wirless to a Think pad264741U


This model Thinkpad does not have a built-in wireless card, you have to install an external wireless card.
SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION
First you need to decide what type of broadband and Internet service you require and these are -
1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A wireless 3G network uses the mobile/cell phone network and can be separate or combine with your cell phone account. This type of Internet connection uses an USB wireless device shaped like an USB memory stick.
Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include a modem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service then your laptop with a wireless card can then connect to the Internet. You can also connect to a free WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. using the wireless card in your laptop.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed the monthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD.

Hi

This can be done in one of 2 ways

1) there may be a wirless button on your laptop, generally on the front or on the side simply slide this in the opposite direction

2) press the FN key and the key with a radio mast type symbol or sattelite type symbol on there with the IBM's generally it is F5

Please leave feedback/vote if this has been useful

T40 2373 no wireless connection


Hi it sounds like your driver is missing or corrupt , this may be the case if u have recently installed windows, go to control panel click on sytem icon then click on device manager button under the hardware tab, have a look then under network adapters to see if there is a yellow warning icon if so make a note of the name and you should be able to download the driver from this location. its near the bottom under networking wireless.

I can not get win explorer to load a page it is ibm think pad a21m running win 2000. i can't get it to load a page


Are you sure you're connected to the internet? Is your LAN working? Go to control panel, system, hardware, device manager and find your network adapter(s). Click on it and see if it is working. Do you have a wireless? Do the same thing. Access to a USB wireless you could try? Install it, connect to the internet and see what happens. Sonetimes the LAN adapter in the computer will go bad.

I know that you cannot get the thinkpad on the internet, but you can download the drivers from this link from the computer you are using for FixYa. Download them to a flash drive, and load them from there to the thinkpad.

LAN DRIVER


Here's a link to the network controller drivers at IBM. These drivers manage both the ethernet and wireless. Be patient, you may have to download several before finding the right one. Take a look at the wireless card (under a panel on the bottom) to see what type of card it is, Intel or Broadsom, and the model, this will help narrow down the driver. If you can't find the right one, send me info on how you get on the internet, wireless or ethernet cable, and what the make and model of the wireless card is, and I'll see if I can help.
