How to turn on the wireless switch on my IBM T42


There isn't a switch on the T42. (I'm using one to write this). the Function (Fn) key toggles the adapters but only if the correct utility is loaded. That is on the lenovo site called 1qkcb9ww or 8jvu12ww. Not sure which controls those features. If Fn+F5 doesn't do it...
You otherwise usually get that message when there is a network adapter conflict and sometimes if the driver has become inactive which it does not too often. Try first disabling any other network adapters like Ethernet and maybe even the infrared network adapter though I doubt that could be it. Mine is disabled anyway. Do this in 'Network connections' from control panel for the Ethernet or with Device manager (Systems>hardware>device manager) if you never use a wired connection. If that doesn't help try reinstalling the drivers from the Lenovo site.

Hi sarah_ramroo,

Unable to connect to the internet through wireless connection is caused by several reasons. I'll be giving you the three most common reasons why you cannot connect on your Lenovo G550 Notebook. Below are the possible causes and some troubleshooting that will help you address the issue:

  • Physical switch is OFF - It is located at the front side of your computer. Make sure that it is toggled to the right.
  • Press Fn + F5 to activate the wireless.
  • Uninstall Lenovo ReadyComm from your laptop. Here's how:
  1. Go to Control Panel.
  2. Then click on Programs and Features.
  3. Look for Lenov Ready Comm. Right click on iy and select uninstall.
  4. After uninstalling, restart your computer.
You should be able to connect now through wireless. Hope it helps.

Reg: WIFI drivers not getting installed


You need to check first if the wireless switch is turn on.If it is on, check the function key for the wireless. Some computers have function key. Sometimes it is combination of fn and f5. Press those keys at the same time and you should see a pop up window and check if the current status is on. If it is on, uninstall/reinstall the wireless driver in device manager. go to programs and features and look for lenovo readycom, uninstall the software and restart your computer. If this didn't work. You need to do re installation of your operating system.
