I have a T43 laptop with an internal wireless adapter. Yesterday is worked fine. Today, the connection does not show up in Network Connections (only the LAN icon is visible) and the Device Manager does not see it either.

    There is no slider switch. I am using Windows XP. I reloaded the driver (Thinkpad Wireless LAN Adapters Software), but no result.

    is there a setting in the bios to enable / disable the wireless lan ?

    Also if you check the manuals does it show you how to physically check the wire connections to the wireless card to make sure that its all seated firmly and the wires are connected ?

    If so I would check that and reseat the pci mini wireless card and check the wires for the antenna are connected correctly and those are seated firmly

I can figure out that your laptop runs Windows Vista. Go to Control panel, then Network and Sharing centre and then go to Manage Network Connections and see if the Wireless Network Connections icon is disabled, make sure it is enabled and not connected. Try disabling and enabling it again. If still no go, try to manually turn off the wireless switch and turn it back ON. Check the light status (if any), confirm the error message too. If still, it seems not to be working, then the internal switching might have gone bad. You need to get the laptop serviced.

Brought a new laptop with wireless installed have a philips SNB5600 but have lost the security key how can i get the code


go to the wireless access point admin settings (not on your wireless adapter on your laptop). then check wireless security settings. if you see something there such as security key, that is the security key that you need to set up on your laptop. if security key is not visible, try to see if there is an option there which says unmask to show the security key, then copy it to your laptop. if all else fails, change the security key in the wireless access point and change all the wireless adapters that connect to it accordingly to the new security key you set it up.

Is there a blue light to show that the wireless is active on the laptop? If not, switch the wireless connection on once windows has loaded. It may be that you have a faulty connection between the wireless card and the motherboard. Check out this link:

I re-installed XP T43 laptop and my wireless does not work


First thing is to check if the wireless device is working. Go to Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device Manager. Click on Network Adapters. Do you see the the Wireless card?
If not in Control Panel click on Network Connections, do you see a Wireless Connection? If not you need to install the correct wireless network driver, Check the IBM site again, there should be another wireless driver (there are a couple of different wireless card installed on T40 series ThinkPads).
THEN
If you succeed in installing the wireless driver and it is enabled.
Then click Control Panel - click on Network Connections - right click on the Wireless Networl Connection - Click on Properties and check if TCP/IP has been installed, if not install it. Check TCP/IP properties - make sure it is set to Obtain an address automatically and Obtain DNS Server address automatically.

Check the wireless settings on your other laptops, use this information to configure the wireless on the T43, ie the SSID, WEP or WAP settings

You should be able to connect to your wireless router and Internet now - let me know how it goes,

Wireless radio control problem


Try going into the Device Manager and making sure the Wireless Adapter is enabled. Click Start > Control Panel > System. Click the Hardware tab then click the Device Manager button. Now click the Plus [+] next to Network adapters then double-click the wireless adapter which is probably the Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection which will open the Properties dialog. Ensure the Device status reads, "This device is working properly" and Device usage shows "Use this device (enable)." If either the Device status or Device usage shows anything other than what is shown above, first try to change the Device usage, which should change the Device status. Now try again to use your wireless adapter. You might need to press Fn + F5 to turn the device on.
