Re: Thinkpad -cant connect to the internet

You mean you have physically installed and uninstalled, or just removed i device manager?
Can you also tell me what model you have? It's not saying, just that it's a Thinkpad

IBM X40 Wireless Radio Keeps Shutting Off

This link will take you to the driver page for your unit. Scroll down to wireless networking and download the latest driver for your machine(there's a couple of different possibilities it could be but you may find that the drivers listed are more recent than the drivers you have loaded on the machine.

Beyond that if you are unable to work out the issues with your wireless you can always purchase a cardbus or USB wireless adapter and disable the onboard wifi.

Post back with you results.

Laptop.. cannot connect to internet

if you want to use wireless connection you have to have a wireless router, and you connect your internet cable into the router, so after you can have a wireless connection with your laptop and his wireless card, and you can work with your laptop everywhere in your house.
you can buy a wireless router in every computer shop.
last thing if you have a desktop PC you can connect a new internet cable to the wireless router (type RJ45)

Internet Connection

A few years ago, i too had an IBM thinkpad and encountered some issues as well when connecting to the internet.

The IBM 2647 does not have a built in wireless card, meaning that you need to purchase one from your local electronics store to use wireless internet. The software provided with these CD's can often be quite helpful and will help you set up the connection.

The 2647 only supports an analog modem connection, and the modem in the area you are attempting to connect via ethernet may use a digital modem. Adapters are available although they are quite pricey (ranging from $200 and up.)

Hope this helps.

No internet connection

Your hardware could be bad, or you may need to adjust your software settings.

Besides uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers; what else have you tried.

Need to know any error messages.

Need to know about the network (and its security settings) that you're trying to connect to.
