Question about IBM ThinkPad T43 Notebook

1 Answer

My t43 will not power on after I uploaded Verizon Wireless modem software. No lights no life at all. About a week ago I loaded XP then added MS Office, Mappoint, Norton, Hyperterminal, and a few other programs. The laptop worked fine until I loaded the VZW software.

Boot up using repair CD or press the blue thinkpad button, use system restore to go back to previous functional images.

I have a pantech um 175 usb wireless modem and I don't have the set up software to activate the usb modem. I need the progamming software so I can access the internet.


That so-called "solution" is totally worthless--the link goes to Pantech PHONE website, which has absolutely NOTHING in the way of downloads, for modems or anything else. As for you, Mr. ADRideau, why don't you bother to check your link before posting it?
Sadly, I don't have any answer to the problem, wish I did because my Verizon software won't recognize my UM175.

IBM t43 fn f5 does not toggle wireless on. Reinstalled windows last week and wireless adapter is not recognized. I loaded proper drivers, but the adapter is not even seen by the operating system.


There are 2 wireless cards for this model. Be sure you have the correct one. Here is a link to download both of them: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-58597.html#wireless

Verizon GT704WG DSL Modem wants me to install software


If my memory serves me, I didn't install the software for my Actiontec modem/router combo. I call Verizon and told them I refused to install the software and they helped step me through getting rid of this garbage. You should never have to install software to get a modem or router to work as any software the comes with it, is simply used to provide easier configuration.

Since I couldn't find anything about bypassing this software, I would suggest contacting Verizon directly. Their technical support should be able to assist you.
