Question about IBM ThinkPad R40 Notebook
Ibm thinkpad r40 windows xp-pro after formatting and re-installing the system, all updates and SPs downloaded and installed, the wireless "disappeared"! the radio led wouldn't lit, in the connection list there is no wlan! just the lan appears. HEEEELP!!
Go to the control panel, then System, then Hardware tab, then Device Manager. Then Network adapters - you should have two network adapters one LAN and one wireless.
If most likely have one, the LAN adapter and a yellow ? against a network adapter - this will be a wireless adapter (its not installed)
Check your BIOS and make sure the wireless card is enabled.
You need to download from the IBM/Lenove WEB site the wireless driver (there may be several types that is installed for your model laptop). Make sure you select the correct Windows version driver.
When you run the driver,it will uncompress and copy to your hard drive in C:\drivers. You can then install the driver from this directory. If it doesn't work then repeat with another driver, most likely one that works will be the Intel one.

haha worrying isnt it...
after reinstallation of windows no drivers for blutooth , wireless quite often modem and same vga,
windows by default does not install because need specific software ...(drivers)
what you need to do is first of all find out what wifi it is ; like wlan400 e.g.
you then need to download and install the driver for it .as soon as the driver is present windows will detect and install device,
look in device manager for devices with no drivers intalled.
same precedure for each device.

if drivers installed device is looking for wifi manager which is the software package for wifi.
you can goto control panel open administrative tools select sevices and scroll to wireless zero config and press start.
this will then use windows settings.done
