Question about IBM ThinkPad 560 E Notebook

IBM ThinkPad 560X 2640 (PCMCIA WiFi Card)

I orderd a IBM ThinkPad 560X off ebay and wanting to know if the 560X supports the PCMCIA WiFi Cards. I seen some on google.com that had the WiFi Cards.

I use to own the IBM ThinkPad 560 Basic and It didn't have USB and the WiFi Card and PCMCIA 2 Port USB card wouldn't read. So I sold it and got a 560X witch boosted me from the 120MHz to 233MHz Processor. The PCMCIA Ports worked because I used my Compact Flast 1GB Card on it to trans data and used the 56K Modem card for internet. I'm only using my 560X for internet travel only, and I had Microsoft Windows XP Professional running on my last 560. So I just need to know if only the WiFi card will read because the 560X has a built on USB Port.

    The 560x has a PC Card - type III (2 x type I / II) PCMCIA. You should be able to use the WiFi card.

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.

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.

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.

Wireless without a cable


Some T40 series (especially T42) laptops have built-in wireless cards and you only need to install the wireless driver.
If you don't have a built in wireless card you can purch a PCMCIA wireless card and inset it into the PCMCIA slot on the laptop.
These cards are common and are available from several manufactories such as Netgear and DLink.

IBM ThinkPad 380Z AV Hook up To Tv


From what I have been reading, the video card in the computer itself MUST support TV out. You can't just use a TV like a computer monitor...it won't work. Check the ads on eBay for those adapter cables and they will say: Check to make sure your video card supports TV out. Go back to eBay and search in the same general area for a computer video to TV adapter or converter box. DO NOT get it confused with the converter box for HDTV. They are about $25-$35 and you will still need the cable adapter you already have, plus another set of just the AV cables. Good luck. Please rate this if it was helpful.

Thinkpad 380ed + USB PCMCIA-card. Can it work?


This is probably due to the power requirements of the pcmcia card you have plugged in. There are 5volt and 3.3volt slots. You have probably plugged a 5volt card into a 3.3volt pcmcia slot.
