Re: ibm think pad t30


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.

IBM T30 Thinkpad 2366 wireless network I inheirited a IBM T30 laptop from my wife. She haad it loaded up with so much **** and it was extremely slow. My fix was to format the drive and reinstall Windows...

You need to download the drivers for your Netgear.
The IBM drivers also need to be found,Depending on your model, it may have WiFi. From IBM spec sheet:
  • 10/100 Ethernet installed on the system board
  • Selected models will have Intel Wireless and modem Mini PCI combo cards
  • Selected models will have CISCO Mini PCI card
  • Selected models will have Bluetooth communication daughter card

The wireless radio switch is usually located on the front side of the machine. If you are having difficulties with wireless connections, make sure the Wireless Radio switch is set in the On position.moz-screenshot.jpg0d7fbfc.gif

I am unable to establish a wireless connection via thinkpad.

What kind of a message do you get? You may have to turn on radio. You can make sure it is enabled.  under connections, right click properties, if it is disabled, click enable, try to repair, delete it and then look for new hardware. Good Luck

I have a T30 IBM Think Pad and cannot find the wireless switch. Can someone help me?

I don't think the T30 has an actual physical switch for the wireless. The ThinkPad button will show you how to do the wireless setup/repair. If you have Bluetooth on it, the Bluetooth indicator should be near the hinge.

Laptop.. cannot connect to internet

if you want to use wireless connection you have to have a wireless router, and you connect your internet cable into the router, so after you can have a wireless connection with your laptop and his wireless card, and you can work with your laptop everywhere in your house.
you can buy a wireless router in every computer shop.
last thing if you have a desktop PC you can connect a new internet cable to the wireless router (type RJ45)
I hope this helps
Please rate accordingly
Thank You

Wirless internet not working

If the router has a block of 4 ports (or more) on the back and one is not used yes -- the separate port which may or may not be connected to the Internet Service Provider's equipment cannot be used for this purpose. There is only one connection point on your computer.

Any connection requires
a unique IP address on the correct Subnet
the appropriate subnet mask for the network segment
the appropriate default gateway for the subnet
and one or more DNS addresses so names like can be accessed

the following work on both the wired and wireless adapter

this can be checked from a command prompt window using the command -

ipconfig /all

A second command can be used to determine of the network adapter is communicating with the router the command is

ping (default gateway)
where (default gateway) is replaced by the default gateway
returned by the ipconfig command above
could be or something close in a home network.

4 timeout messages indicate failure and 4 message with elapsed time in ms (milliseconds) is success. the results can be mixed, but should not be in this case.

If you need additional instructions to issue these commands ask in a reply to this message and I will send you the detailed instrictions.

Record information returned by the above tests and return in a comment with the current problem description and I will respond with additional steps and questions or possibly a solution.
