How can i turn on wifi?


Step 1:
which operating system ?
For the most part, IBM has switched its focus away from personal computers and more towards large business items such as servers and networks. However, it is still possible to use and purchase an IBM Thinkpad. These are IBM's version of the laptop. A majority of IBM Thinkpads still use Windows XP and offer the function of connecting to WiFi, as long as the connection has been properly configured.

Power on the IBM Thinkpad and wait for it to completely boot up. Right-click the small wireless desktop icon in the bottom right corner of the screen. Select "View Available Wireless Signals" from the pull-up menu. This is going to load a small window that displays all of the available WiFi signals in the area. There are going to be padlock icons next to the signals if a password has been placed on them. Click on one of the WiFi signals to which you want to connect. If a password is required, you are going to be asked here to type it in. Wait a few moments for the IBM Thinkpad to connect to the WiFi signal. The computer is going to display a small message window once the connection has completed. You have now finished the configuration, and you can begin to surf the Internet.

I can not get a internet connection.. computer was reformatted and it tells me i have no internet connection... help please


If you are running windows xp after the reformat you will have to load all of the device drivers. Ethernet adapter is one of them. So you will need to use a pc that has internet connection and go to IBM's web site and download drivers to flash drive then install then to the IBM thinkpad

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

My Ibm thinkpad 390x cannot connect to the internet. I have tried ethernet connection to my liveboox (router) but did not work. I tried using Belkin wireless connection=No result What can I do? I guess it...


Since you were not able to access the internet with your thinkpad wired directly to the livebox router, your internet service provider may be the problem, however, before you call them, do what they would have you do anyway:
  1. Power off everything, the livebox and the computer and leave them both off for 10 to 30 seconds.
  2. Turn on the livebox and let it completely cycle up until the lights stabilize.
  3. Turn on your thinkpad and let it completely finish the boot process.
  4. Check that the wired connection to the thinkpad gives you access to the Internet.
    1. If not, you'll want to call your Internet Service Provider before proceeding.
  5. Check your wireless connection to see if it is now working.
    1. If not, check to make sure you are using the correct SSID (the name that shows up in the "list" of available Wi-Fi connections), and that it says connected and secured.
    2. If you have a secure connection to the correct SSID and still cannot reach the Internet via Wi-Fi then something else is wrong. For example, your thinkpad may have been infected with malware that is affecting your thinkpad's ability to connect to web pages.

Ibm thinkpad t43 backlight inverter issue


Did you say the the video output flickers on and off when you connect an external monitor to the video output. If the inverter is faulty this would not affect the video output and the external monitor would not flicker but if the external monitor flickers it would point to a video card problem.
