Question about IBM ThinkPad T41 Notebook

1 Answer

I have T41 and was able to connect to wireless internate with no Issue. I was trying to update the Access connection to newer version but because of that now I am not able to get IP on the wireless internet. It show that I am connected to the router with excellent signal but no IP is given. I know router is working because my other wireless devices are able to get Ip and connect to internet. I have tried to roll back the acces connection to previous version, also try to re-install the driver but all no luck. I notice also my shortcut key (Fn+F4) is not functioning.

The T40 series model has several different types of wireless. It is most likely the wrong wireless card driver was installed. Download all the wireless card drivers and install one at a time until you get the right driver.

Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device drivers for your model computer, Use this link :-
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true
You can download the various drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, they will then unzip and expand into a folder on C:\drivers Then install the various drivers from this folder.

Vaio fs920 will not connect to wireless internet


I'm assuming you are still using WinXP on this machine? If so make sure you have Service Pack 3 installed since XP doesn't have native support for newer wireless encryption standards like WPA2.
If you are using WPA2 encryption on your network then try setting it to an older version like WEP and connecting that way, if that works but not with WPA2 then you don't have the extensions for the newer encryption protocols installed that come with Service Pack 3.

Reset the router and try it with the WPA2. If you haven't you should update firmware to version 1.05. This version fixes the WPA2 authentication issue. However, be forewarned that if you update to this version, it seems to reboot the router if you put too much traffic through it...

Keep losing internet connection


Hi Dave,

I got your issue , You have mentioned that you are losing the internet connection through the router .

To fix this issue You need to update the firmware on the router . I have given you the link to download the firmware from the website

http://en-us-support.belkin.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/527/kw/8231/r_id/166

1.You have not mentioned the version number of the router , so please check the version number (in the bottom of the router)

For example: If its version 4000, then you have to download 4xxx firmware which is in the link.

2.After downloading the firmware from the website, save this file in a location where you can easily identify(eg: desktop)

3.connect the comp to the router with the ethernet cable to the router in any one of the wired slot and open the browser(eg: Internet explorer) and in the address bar type 192.168.2.1 and enter.
you will be logged into the router setup page.

4.Look on the left side of the page under Utilities , click on firmware update

5. then if its asking for login password, leave the password as blank and click on submit.

6. then click on browse and choose the file from the location where you save and then click update.

Once after firmware update you will not have any problem in loosing connection. please try this I'm sure it will work.

Thanks & Regards,
Prema

How do I connect wirelessly to internet on T41


Morphius, you probably have a bad wireless linkup. Either your end or the originating end has a problem. Check all connections at the base station (if you can access it), and make sure that all your connections are sound. If your signal strength is poor, you might want to move closer to the base station. If all this fails, test your laptop on other connections. If they don't work, take your laptop in for repair because your wireless card may not be working.
