The IBM T40 has a builtin LAN adapter most likely an Intel LAN.
You need to make sure it is enabled in the BIOS.
Also you need to install the driver for this LAN adapter.

How do you know that you got a Siemens LAN adapter, is it a PCMCIA card?

    I formated my IBM think pad now i am not getting the LAN icon inside my network nighbourhood \\


    Whenever you do an operating sytem reinstallation, windows itself will only have the basic drivers, and that will not include the network drivers for you to be able to connect to the internet (especially in windows XP). If thats the case you can use another system which has internet connection and go to http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/migr-46258.html to download the driver for your LAN. Save it into a flash drive and install it to the system that you just did an OSRI. Restart the system and try connecting with the cable initially to the router to have internet connection.

    Thanks!

    IBMThinkPad T40 Wont connect to wireless networks.


    Hello, if you see a yellow exclamation mark it means device drivers are not installed or are incorrect.
    below is the link for IBM/Lenovo site that lists all the drivers for Thinkpad T40/T41. Go to that linkand scroll down to " Wireless Networking" and select the appropriate drivers: eg: Make sure it under T40 section, and not T41 since they are listed side by side.
    since i am not sure which exact wireless card your T40 has i am posting this main link where it lists all options.
    I would start with "ThinkPad 802.11bg wireless LAN Mini PCI adapter" if this doesn't work try next one in the list.
    here is the link: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-46258.html#wireless

    I hope this helps, let me know if there is a problem.

    Kind reagrds,

    How to fix the wireless controler in a think pad


    When you download the T40 device drivers from the IBM/Lenevo WEB site make sure you select your model laptop and, they need to be the XP or Vista versions of the drivers you need.
    When you run the driver programs they will be unzipped/expanded to the hard drive in a folder c:\drivers. Then you need to open the various folders and run the setup programs to install the various drivers.
    NOTE - The T40 series laptops come with various different manufacturers devices (eg. there are a few different wireless model LANs) and if one version driver doesn't work you need to install a different one. It is a bit of trial and error to find the right one

    IBM ThinkPad T20


    Wow, a lot of information but I'm unclear as to what you are trying to do.

    Are you connecting the T20 directly to the T40 using a cat5 cable and then trying to access the internet on the T20 via the modem?

    Connecting the two computer together using a normal cat5 will not work, you need to use a crossover cable otherwise you are connecting the send to the send and the receive to the receive.
    You can also use a hub, a switch or a router if you have any of those on hand.

    As for the modem, I suggest you unplug the telephone line from the modem and plug it into a phone and see if you can hear a dial tone. If you cannot hear a tone either the extension is bad (replace) or you outlet is defective. If you can hear a tone, the modem card may be defective.
