If you're referring to the wireless card then you should activate it thru the Control Panel.

IBM R31 ThinkPad connecting to VISIO flat screen TV


So there are a few things you need to know, you will need a converter box from the Laptop to TV, but you would not need one for connecting your laptop to a monitor. These can be purchased online (ebay) or in stores.

Two problems with my IBM thinkpad r31 (DVD player and Battery):


Your power plug inside the laptop on the motherboard is likely corroded around the positive terminal connected to the motherboard. Repair places will charge a few hundred dollars to fix this fairly simple problem not requiring any parts. Good luck. If you live in new zealand I can do it for you fairly cheap...

Trouble creating wireless access point from D-Link DI-514 router


You should be able to plug the D-Link into any of the Linksys wired ports (not the Uplink port) and tell the D-Link to get an IP address from the Linksys router (as long as the Linksys router has DHCP turned on). Verify that both boxes are on the same network (192.168...) and don't have the same IP address. What happens when you do this? Can you get to the Linksys & D-Link from a wired workstation?

DVD


Hi,
I don't mean to disagree with my associate, but DVD players for R series (or T, A, etc) can be found for less than 20.00 US (Ebay is a good example)
For that matter, we've got at least a dozen at our shop which we sell for 25.00
Installation is very simple as well, just pop the old drive out, put the new drive in.
Good luck
