2. Purchase and install a wireless usb adapter that plugs into your usb port from Tiger Direct at: http://www.tigerdirect.com
3. Try using another client to manage your wireless. Usually there are 2 ways to manage your wireless on the laptop. You can use the software that came with your internal wireless card or you can use Windows (zero config) to manage your wireless. Which ever one you are now using, switch to the other. Open the software that controls your wireless and look through the tabs searching for where it will say something like "Let this tool Manage the Wireless" or "Let Windows Zero Config Manage the Wireless". Which ever one it is using switch to the other by checking or unchecking the box. Most times one will produce a better and stronger signal than the other.
According to IBM. You have a hardware malfunction common to the hard drive. If you use the link provided here , it will take you to the entire list of error codes for POST (power on self test) Numeric error codes. There is also a link to download diagnostic software. Hope this helps http://www-947.ibm.com/systems/support/supportsite.wss/docdisplay?brandind=5000008&lndocid=MIGR-4BAHK2
The reason why you need to do a repair is because the wireless router couldn't issue the wireless a IP address to the laptop at the time of booting up. This is a common problem.
Check the signal strength of the wireless card, if it is in the mid range move the laptop or reposition the wireless router so you get a better signal strength.
Also power off the wireless router, wait 1/2 min and power up the router again. This is a suggestion, do this once a month. The wireless router will get a new IP address from your ISP, and if someone locks onto your old router's IP address then it is no longer available to them when the router gets a new IP address.
im assuming its a cardbus adapter right? well that model is a wireless b signal, which isnt very strong, so any wireless g model should have a much stronger signal. it doesnt matter which one it is, as long as its wireless g, which most new cards are. hope this helps, goodluck
If you are able to, take the the linksys card out of that IBM r50 and install it on another one of your laptops.If you get a great signal you know the card is good but if you move that card to another laptop and have the same problem you will have to replace the wireless card.If other laptops will not accept that card you can purchase a new Lynksys wireless usb adapter and see if that solves your problem.Those usb wireless adapters only cost about $35.Another way to seperate the problem would be to see if the IBM R50 will access any other wireless network with more signal strength.take your laptop to a public wireless connection(mcdonalds star bucks) any if you get a good signal than your problem is with your router.RATE ME IF THIS HELPS....Good LUCK!
To my knowledge, your laptop (IBM ThinkPad X30 2672) does not have any built-in WiFi. It's modes of connection are IrDA, modem, Ethernet, USP, Firewire aside from the regular serial & parallel. This would indicate that if you are wireless you either have a USB dongle or PCMCIA card. Please post back with your WiFi brand/model and your Operating System. Further, please post back likewise your WiFi AP/Router brand/model.
The message "a network cable is unplugged" pertains to the absence of a lan cable connected to your Ethernet port.
Good luck, kind regards and will await your second post.
