    My Connction keeps dropping, a lot. Less than 5 mins a clip. Is there any setting that should be changed to prevent this?

    Could you please specify your network environment.


    Do you want to connect to your home router or home gateway, or you are trying to connect to a public wi-fi hotspot?


    Thanks

Morphius, you probably have a bad wireless linkup. Either your end or the originating end has a problem. Check all connections at the base station (if you can access it), and make sure that all your connections are sound. If your signal strength is poor, you might want to move closer to the base station. If all this fails, test your laptop on other connections. If they don't work, take your laptop in for repair because your wireless card may not be working.

Go to IBM website and look for drivers for your computer model (T41) and locate the network drivers. (This obviously has to be done from another computer with internet access). Download and save the setup file to a flash drive and then run the setup on the IBM T41

How to configure a wireless connection


Hi friend,

firstly make sure if you user Windows XP , you install service pack 3 in your system before the wireless configuration,this is not necessary but it protect your system  against hackers,If you user Windows Vista you need to install Service pack 1.
many wireless technologis in market like 802.11a and 802.11g,most popular is 802.11g.firstly you need some necessary equipment for wireless network technology-
1-Wireless router
2-wireless network adapter
3- Broadband Internet connection
firstly unplug the cable modem,connect your wireless router to your modem,your computer will through wireless connect to your router, and the router will send communications through your modem to the Internet.
turn on the system and open Internet Explorer and type in the address to configure your router.You might be prompted for a password. The address and password you use will vary depending on what type of router you have, so refer to the instructions included with your router.
The exact steps you follow to configure these settings will vary depending on the type of router you have. After each configuration setting, be sure to click Save Settings, Apply, or OK to save your changes.
I think this is helpful to you.

Thanks,

The T40 series model has several different types of wireless. It is most likely the wrong wireless card driver was installed. Download all the wireless card drivers and install one at a time until you get the right driver.

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.

Can't set up wireless on IBM Thinkpad


If I recall there are two types of wireless cards that are installed in the T40 series of laptops. Can't advise you which one is installed in your laptop. Download both of them and install one, it it doesn't work then install the other one.

Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device drivers for your model laptop,
You need to use a computer that has Internet access to download and transfer the files to your computer.

http://www.ibm.com/products/finder/us/finders?pg=ddfinder&cm_re=other-_-suprcn-_-download

Once you get the wireless card operation, you need a wireless router that is connected to a cable or DSL modem which is connected to an Internet Service Provider.
You don't need a wireless router if you only want to connect to the Internet using wireless Hot Spots in public locations or Internet cafes.
