Hi,
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.
Good luck

Sounds like you are trying to boot from a lan or someplace other than your hard drive. Turn the computer off then turn it back on and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence then hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you'll have to reboot to restart the process. Select the Hard Drive as your boot source and then see if it boots up all the way. If it does, you will have to do this each time you start the computer unless you make a permanent change to the boot order or boot sequence.

To make the change permanent, turn the computer off and restart it. Look at the screen for which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup then hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you'll have to restart. Once you get into the Bios or System Setup look for the Boot Sequence Tab or Settings and go change the boot sequence or Boot Order. Make the cd drive 1st, and the hard drive 2nd. This is the normal boot order or boot sequence. Just make sure when you boot the computer you don't have a music cd or movie dvd in the drive or you'll get an error because the system will try to boot from the cd/dvd drive 1st.

Sounds like you are trying to boot from a lan or someplace other than the hard drive.

Turn the computer off, then turn it back on and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to change the Boot Sequence or Boot Order, then hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to boot again to restart.

Select the hard drive as the boot device and let it boot up. If it works, then you will have to do this each time you boot because it only works for the current boot cycle. You can avoid doing this by making it a permanent change in the Bios or System Setup.

To make the change permanent turn off the computer and turn it back on, then watch the screen for which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup then hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to start over. Once you are in the Bios or System Setup look for the Boot Sequence or Boot Order tab or settings. Change it to make the CD/DvD drive 1st and the Hard Drive 2nd. This is the normal sequence, just make sure no music cd or movie dvd is in the drive when you boot or you will get an error message.

Your system is trying to boot from someplace other than your hard drive (Probably a LAN).

Turn the computer off and restart it, but watch the screen for which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Sequence or Boot Order, then hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to reboot and start over. Select the Hard Drive as your boot device and see if it boots up. If so, you will have to do this everytime you boot up, but you can make it a permanent change so that you won't have to do this each time you boot.

To make it a permanent change, turn the laptop off, then turn it on and watch the screen to see which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. Hit that key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to reboot and start over. Once you get into the Bios or System Setup look for the Boot Sequence or Boot Order and go to it and make the ddc/cd drive as your 1st and the Hard Drive as 2nd. This is the normal boot order but you have to make sure nothing is in the dvd/cd drive when you boot (such as a music cd or a movie dvd) otherwise the system will try to boot from it and you will get a error message. This also allows you to fix your computer in case it can't boot from the hard drive for some reason. Save the changes and exit out of the Bios or System Setup and reboot.

Did you reinstall windows? If not, you need to put an operating system disk in the cd drive and boot from it and reinstall windows.

If you don't get an option to Press Any Key to Boot From CD message then turn the computer off and restart it and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence. Hit that key when you see the message otherwise it will not work and you will have to reboot. This is a temporary fix that will work that this boot cycle.

If you want to make a permanent change to the boot cycle or boot sequence you have to turn the computer off then turn it on and watch for which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup. You have to hit that key when you see the message or it will not work and you'll have to start over. Once inside the Bios or System Setup got the the Boot Tab so you can change the boot order or boot sequence. Normally you want it to boot from the CD drive 1st and the Hard Drive 2nd. With this setup just make sure when you boot the computer that you don't have a music cd or movie dvd in the drive or it will try to boot from it and give you an error message.

You computer is trying to boot from somewhere other than your hard drive.

Turn the computer off and when you turn it on, watch the screen for which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence. Hit that key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to reboot and try it again. Select the Hard Drive as your bood device and let it boot up. This is a temporary change only good for this boot cycle. You need to make a permanent change to the boot order.

To make a permanent change to the boot order or sequence, turn the computer off and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to get into the BIOS or System Setup. Hit that key when you see the message or you will have to restart and try again. Once you get into the BIOS or System Setup tab over to change the boot order or boot sequence.

Just make sure when you boot the computer that you don't have a music cd or movie dvd in the drive or you will get an error message if it tries to boot from it. You want this sequence just incase you have problems with your hard drive, then you can put a repair disc or system disc in the dvd/cd drive and it will boot from it so you can try to fix the problem.

Hard drive is not detected. Change the Boot sequence in BIOS

1. To access the BIOS you must tap F2 or delete key upon turning the computer on
2. Try to look for the Hard drive if it is detected by BIOS if not got to step 6
3. Look for Boot Sequence or anything that is associated Boot
4. The Order boot of must be 1st: DVD Drive, 2nd: Hard drive, 3rd: Network etc.
5. Save the changes and Restart
6. If you still get the same message I suggest that you take out the hard drive and put it back in until it is detected in BIOS
7. If Step 6 did not work I think you need to replace the Hard drive

Boot sequence isn't enough. You have to turn OFF (disable) the boot from network. The error your seeing is result of the network boot rom not finding PXE server to boot from. Again, be sure to disable boot from network.

Thinkpad T30 Error 1802 from Verizon modem..Now won't boot past error message even without modem plugged in. Help


The 1802 error is ussually caused by an "unsupported" wireless card being installed. check out this site for a fix that has worked for me on a couple Thinkpads (including the one I'm writing this message on) to allow unsopported wifi cards to work.

IBM R40 2722 1802 Error Message


This is due to the fact that IBM laptops have a list of accepted devices, and the pci card is not recognised in the list. On IBM - Amilo, Mini PCI card slot is usually at the back of computer. Locate and remove Mini PCI wireless card, you will not have integrated wireless after this.
Other solution is to find the option to disable mini PCI in bios settings.
Here is how mini pci wireless card looks like:
