Question about IBM ThinkPad Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I need to convert a "refurbished" IBM T21 Thinkpad to WiFi accessililty.

Duracom IBM T21 ThinkPad bought 2005-2006 refurbished from Dallas, Texas Sweepstakes Clearinghouse; I didn't know it wasn't "WiFi" enabled at purchase (layaway plan). I need to convert the "never connected to any ISP" T21 for "Chicago Public Library 'free WiFi' System" for WiFi operations. I understand the process involves a simple "computer card's addition" to the system internally, so I'll be able to use it with "Free WiFi locations." How?

SOURCE: IBM thinkpad 2647 T21 LAN Card Driver files needed...

if you are using the internal LAN card to connect to the cable modem, no additional drivers will be needed. However, you would need to configure TCP/IP settings to use a DHCP server to automatically configure the IP address. you would also need to check whether or not you have the right CAT-5 cable. you might need to buy a crossover cable.

hope this helps

You could buy a USB wireless network adapter and plug it into a USB port and get wireless internet that way. Wouldn't matter which USB network adapter that you would buy.

IBM Thinkpad T21


This is a common problem with the T20 series Thinkpad. The problem is with the power management chip. Unfortunately, you will have to replace the motherboard to fix it. Since these are a bit on the older side, you can get a motherboard off Ebay at a reasonable price.
