Question about IBM ThinkPad X40 Notebook
For almost two years I've been dealing with an intermittent wireless connection (cable) on my IBM X40 (XP). My roommates and guests connections work fine so I know the Internet and wireless router is ok. I recently noticed that whenever I lose my connection the wireless radio (FN+F5) is "off". If I click "power on" I get reconnected after a few seconds. Anyone know why this is shutting off? Is there a software update or something I'm missing? I've heard some issues with Access Connections, but frankly I don't know if that applies to me or how to fix it if it does... Any help is much appreciated.
This link will take you to the driver page for your unit. Scroll down to wireless networking and download the latest driver for your machine(there's a couple of different possibilities it could be but you may find that the drivers listed are more recent than the drivers you have loaded on the machine.
Beyond that if you are unable to work out the issues with your wireless you can always purchase a cardbus or USB wireless adapter and disable the onboard wifi.
Post back with you results.
