Boost PCMCIA Wifi Card Range

I own a IBM ThinkPad T20 that doesn't have the built-in WiFi like todays laptops. I have a LinkSys Instant Wireless Network PC Card Ver.3, and get some WiFi connections around. It connects fine but sometimes it will go off and on with connecting. I'm running Windows XP Professional on it and the bubble at the bottom pops up saying connected Signal Strength Very Low. Is there a way to boost the Signal?

Their is a way, you need a Linksys Wireless-G Range Expander WRE54G Repeater - External. Price $70 - $100. Depending on wireless G or N network. I now a guy who tried to connect to their neighbors wireless internet, he bought one and it helped a bit. He did though connect to a wireless WiFi across the street with good signal.

I just purchased an IBM Laptop model T23-type 2647 and I need to find where my wireless connection switch is located to turn the wireless connection on, can you help me?


Unless I'm very much confused, this laptop does not have WiFi wireless capabilities as provided by the manufacturer.
I checked the user manual for this laptop, and there is not mention of built-in WiFi capability.
It may be that the laptop has an add-on PCMCIA card that supports WiFi. In that case, you would need the software that came with the adapter or download the software from the vender's web site.
This is the location that I found the user manual: HERE

How to turn on wifi


hi

the T42 does not have WiFi, instead it facilitates internet connection via 16 BIT & 32 Bit PCMCIA slot to install a WiFi card , in order to go on the internet.

The ThinkPad uses the following adapters: v 360, 365X, 380, 600: 16-Bit PCMCIA v T20, T22, T23: 32-Bit CardBus and MiniPCI v T23: 32-Bit CardBus and MiniPCI Daughter Card v T30: 32-Bit CardBus and LAN on Planar Board (LOB) v T4x: 32-Bit CardBus and LAN on Planar Board (LOB). 16- and 32-Bit PC Card adapters are configured during ThinkPad initialization. Network Interface Controller data rates are: v For Token Ring: 4/16 MBps v For Ethernet: 10 Mbps...........16 bit PCMCIA 10/100 Mbps.......32 bit CardBus 10/100 Mbps.......MiniPCI and Daughter Card 10/100 Mbps.......T3x and T40 LOB 10/100/1000 Mbps..T42 LOB The MiniPCI Ethernet adapter is accessed behind a removable plate located on the bottom of the ThinkPad directly above the Model/Type S/N sticker. For T20 and T22, the MiniPCI adapter may be an Ethernet/Modem combination card. The Daughter Card (T23) is secured with two screws and is located next to the MiniPCI modem adapter.

Does IBM THINKPAD type 2652 1.8GHs has wifi cards


This particular model don't have a built in wireless card on it , it only has a Integrated Network Card for wired connection .

So if you want to make this laptop work wireless you need to get a wireless adapter like this adapter from Linksys WPC54G or WUSB54GC so this laptop can be use wirelessly.

Need WiFi instead of Bluetooth


You have two choices for a wireless connection, a PCMCIA card or a USB device.
My choice would be a PCMCIA card, because it frees up a USB port.
There are quite a few PCMCIA card to choose from, I favour Netgear and D-Link.
Their instructions make them easy to install and setup.
Let me know if you have problems.

Ibm think pad t30


Hi,

To my knowledge, your laptop (IBM ThinkPad X30 2672) does not have any built-in WiFi. It's modes of connection are IrDA, modem, Ethernet, USP, Firewire aside from the regular serial & parallel. This would indicate that if you are wireless you either have a USB dongle or PCMCIA card. Please post back with your WiFi brand/model and your Operating System. Further, please post back likewise your WiFi AP/Router brand/model.

The message "a network cable is unplugged" pertains to the absence of a lan cable connected to your Ethernet port.

Good luck, kind regards and will await your second post.
