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.

The easiest thing would be to buy a PCMCIA card that goes in on of the slots in the laptop. You can Google PCMCIA CARDS and it will show a list of alot of places to buy one. Radio shack, amazon.com, ebay.com etc.
Hope this helps

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.
please go to this link to read the manual -- it will explain the features for this ThinkPad of various series T42 model-type .

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.

PCMCIA Verizon BroadBand Internet PC Card


You COULD do it, but man.

you are gonna be charged for each MB used, and honestly, it would be a terribly impractical approach.

Just to humor you, you'd do it as such.

Set up your laptop to run all the time. Have the Verizon card plugged in, and always active, and set to never drop connection. You'll now need a crossover cable, and you'll run the rj45 crossover from the ethernet on your laptop to the WAN port on your router. You'll then need to bridge the connections. Some versions of Windows support internet connection sharing; effectively doing the same thing. Now, you should have active internet.

Now, you're going to be charged per MB, you're gonna have a SLOW SLOW SLOW SLOW connection, and you should expect $1000 phone bills monthly.

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.

IBM T30 Thinkpad sound system failure


Thinkpad is a laptop. Very few laptops have "removable" sound cards. Sorry, but I think that applies to you. After opening many different Thinkpads (and the new Lenovo versions) I have never seen a separate sound card... the sound chip (usually AC97 standard chip, or Intel) is integrated into the motherboard. Newer laptops often have one or two small PCI card slots, but this is usually occupied by WIFI cards. Never seen a PCI sound card for laptop mini PCI slots either. HOWEVER, there is one solution available to you: There are many old PCMCIA cards with full Sound Blaster or AC97 sound, that provide excellent 32-bit digital sound. Search in an old used PC hardware bin, or buy a new one on line by searching for "PCMCIA sound card". Prices are very low. Good luck, let me know if you find one, please.
