When you download the T40 device drivers from the IBM/Lenevo WEB site make sure you select your model laptop and, they need to be the XP or Vista versions of the drivers you need.
When you run the driver programs they will be unzipped/expanded to the hard drive in a folder c:\drivers. Then you need to open the various folders and run the setup programs to install the various drivers.
NOTE - The T40 series laptops come with various different manufacturers devices (eg. there are a few different wireless model LANs) and if one version driver doesn't work you need to install a different one. It is a bit of trial and error to find the right one

T40 2373 no wireless connection


Hi it sounds like your driver is missing or corrupt , this may be the case if u have recently installed windows, go to control panel click on sytem icon then click on device manager button under the hardware tab, have a look then under network adapters to see if there is a yellow warning icon if so make a note of the name and you should be able to download the driver from this location. its near the bottom under networking wireless.

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.

Wireless without a cable


Some T40 series (especially T42) laptops have built-in wireless cards and you only need to install the wireless driver.
If you don't have a built in wireless card you can purch a PCMCIA wireless card and inset it into the PCMCIA slot on the laptop.
These cards are common and are available from several manufactories such as Netgear and DLink.

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.

Where is the wireless switch on the IBM think pad?


Use Fn + F5 (most thinkpads) to enable your wireless.
If you are used to a menu, visit www.lenovo.com (the producer of IBM Thinkpads for ages) and download System Update (a program which will download a lot of updates and drivers for your Thinkpad)
