IMB ThinkPad T40 wireless connection...

Recently I deleted Windows XP on my computer and then reinstalled it. I have everything installed correctly (so I think) and I can't get the computer to even give me the option to add a wireless connection. Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Where is the switch to turn on the wireless for the ibm thinkpad t40

The T40 does not have a switch to turn the wireless card, the correct wireless driver only needs to be installed.
The same model ThinkPads can have several different video and audio drivers and unless you know exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download all the drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver.
When you download the drivers, write down the device driver and it’s file name so you have a record of which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files are located on your hard drive.
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: -
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 sub folder on C:\drivers Then install the various drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).

IBM ThinkPad T20

Wow, a lot of information but I'm unclear as to what you are trying to do.

Are you connecting the T20 directly to the T40 using a cat5 cable and then trying to access the internet on the T20 via the modem?

Connecting the two computer together using a normal cat5 will not work, you need to use a crossover cable otherwise you are connecting the send to the send and the receive to the receive.
You can also use a hub, a switch or a router if you have any of those on hand.

As for the modem, I suggest you unplug the telephone line from the modem and plug it into a phone and see if you can hear a dial tone. If you cannot hear a tone either the extension is bad (replace) or you outlet is defective. If you can hear a tone, the modem card may be defective.

You don't say what OS you run, but have you tried reinstalling your audio files? This will probably fix your problem.
If you run Windows XP, 2000 or 98SE, this link will download the correct drivers :
