On many laptops there is a very small dwitch (usually a small slide switch along the front edge) for turning on and off the wireless so that you can keep it private in public areas. Look for it - the light will come on if you find the right one.

Thinkpad T61 in not use bluetooth


Hi, If you are having issues with your Bluetooth on the T61, you can try to check the Wireless/Bluetooth switch on the computer. then Try Pressing Fn+F5 on the keyboard to show if the Bluetooth is on or not. If it only shows Wireless, that on ly means that you don 't have any bluetooth on the computer.

New cq61 212 wireless is not working


You must be sure that the wireless service is turned on. This can be a button on the front of the computer or in the area of the keyboard with a wireless symbol on it. Check your documentation for it's location.

Once that is working, then you need to set up a connection to your wireless access point or router. To do that you just go to Control Panel, open the wireless "wizard" and follow the steps as they come up.

You will need information about your wireless network to make that connnection. You will need to know the router's SSID or name of the network and any security code in WEP or WPA settings to allow your wireless to make the connection.

Find this information before beginning the network wizard. Once connected you should be able to access the Internet. If you want access to other computers you will need to do some additional work.

My computer no longer has the wireless info in it


Okay - right click on the "PCI Modem" and select "Update Driver" - and reinstall the Wireless Driver. If that doesn't work, use the Windows Restore function to roll the system back to the last time the wireless worked. If that doesn't fix it, then the wireless function has probably died. You'll need to get a wireless network PCMCIA card for your laptop and use that to connect.
