In most cases, if there are no wireless button switcher, you can use keyboard key combination using (FN) located on the bottom neer (Ctrl) plus a key located on the top (F1,F2,F3,F4..) that contain a small picture representing wireless.
So jsut hold down FN+WirelessKey

Is it possible to connect an old IBM laptop 240X thinkpad to wireless internet


Yes but you need to install a PCMCIA wireless card and the wireless card driver.
There are several makes on the market, such as Netgear, D-link etc.
I suggest you Google search the Internet for PCMCIA wireless cards and select one that suits your requirements.

I cant get a wireless connection on my IBM R40 using a Linksys G


I had the same problem with my R40 (2681) and a Linksys G router. The specs on IBM's/Lenovo's site indicate that the wireless card in the R40 only handles certain types of wireless encryption. The newer types (e.g. WPA) won't work on it and they are usually the standard on routers nowadays. My Linksys G router works fine with the R40 with WEP or with no encryption. Not ideal, but that's life with an old laptop.

Depending on the installation, you have one of two ways that wireless is enabled. Both should be available via control panel. If it appears that there is no such access, then use the network setup wizard to find and implement the function. If this is an IBM, there is an alt function on the keyboard for this.
