I think what you need is a wireless B/G LAN card for your laptop, These are relatively cheap and simple to install, similar to installing additional RAM. Just make sure you get a card that is compatible with your machine if it is an older model.

I have a problem.. i lost my driver for my wifi. ibm t40 think pad.. where can i download it??


First place to try is the IBM support site, which is now Lenovo.
If that does not work, try using a driver finder product. That might be able to identify the wifi card and find a driver for it.

I just bought a new iPhone 3g and i tried to unlock it through the internet. No sim card is working on my phone. All that my phone is displaying is "itunes" and an arrow pointing to it. Whats the problem?...


Hi, i don't think you can jail brake the iphone from the internet. I think your best bet would be to buy a smart sim from ebay. You can find thousands there. You just pop the magic card in, switch the phone on and off and then your free to use any network you like. I hope this helps.

I just bought a used ibm think pad laptop


Hi there.
If you have just bought the laptop chances are the operating has been removed to you cannot see any data that used to be on it, you need to go and purchase a windows OS that the laptop was built for (i'm guessing XP) and re-install the operating system again.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Wireless connection


Hi,

There are a few requirements other than the laptop and the wireless card. You need to also have an Wireless AP/Router that must be connected to the modem that connects to your ISP. All your PCs must then connect to this router either using the wired/Ethernet ports or WiFi.

If such a device (WiFi AP/Router) already exists and is connected to your modem and your other PC(s) are tied up to it and can access the Internet, you need to install the drivers (in a CD that came with the wireless card) to your IBM ThinkPad. Thereafter, you need to configure your laptop's wireless networking to access the AP/router. Your AP/Router must also be configured to accept wireless clients.

Please post back with brand/model of your AP/Router.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Think pad wireless card


You may try the following:

1) Plug the wireless card on another slot
2) Update the drivers of the wireless card

If those does not work, you may try to install the wireless card on another computer just to isolate if the problem is on the wireless card or on the slot of the computer
