Question about IBM ThinkPad R40 2897 Notebook
After looking at boot sequence (¬ changing anything I think) when I turn on laptop I get this message. "Error 1802 Unorthorized network card is plugged in.-Power off & remove the miniPCI network card". Have unplugged network card & computer works except to access Internet, but will access home network. Have performed System Restore but to no avail.
IBM requires using a "branded" network adapter, meaning one that has IBM's name on it, no matter if it's broadcom,etc. There is a couple of workarounds for this problem which would enable you to use whatever wireless adapter you wish. I would google IBM R40, and error 1802 and you'll find the application you need. Unfortunately, I'm not able to offer it to you here.
