Why IBM Thinkpad 2723 r40 won't connect to internet wireless


If you don't see a list of available wireless networks, your wireless switch is probably in the off position.

Download problem


Im assuming its wireless ?
The Lenovo Thinkpad is a line of primarily business and performance laptops that have wireless capabilities offered in its standard feature set.
The Thinkpads can have issues with the wireless such as poor connection speed, undetected wireless cards and problems connecting to a wireless network.

Slow Connection

A Thinkpad that can connect to wireless networks or Internet may exhibit slowdown or performance issues when downloading or transferring files.
A few possible fixes for this problem include reconnecting to the wireless network, resetting your router or modem or moving away from any devices that could interfere with your wireless connection.
No Connection
If the Thinkpad cannot connect to the wireless network at all, it could have a software or a hardware issue.
Thinkpad laptops need the wireless receiver button switched to the "on" position in order to pick up any wireless signals.
The operating system should pick up the wireless card automatically but a driver or operating system update could fix any compatibility issues between the OS, the network card and other devices on the computer.
The Thinkpad will be unable to connect to your wireless network if you are attempting to connect to the wrong SSID, network name or are entering the wrong password.
Undetected Adapter
The incorrect installation of device drivers may lead to the wireless adapter or card being undetected by the operating system.
Lenovo's support site, in Resources, contains the specific wireless card drivers used by your Lenovo Thinkpad.
For third party PCMCIA wireless network adapters or wireless USB dongles, the manufacturer of the device should have drivers to install. It is possible that the adapter could have a hardware issue.
Most Thinkpads have the wireless cards integrated into the motherboard, so you would need a complete motherboard or laptop replacement to fix a physical problem.

Internet Explorer Download Problems
While most people use the Internet Explorer Web browser to connect with the computerized world, some are unable to successfully download a file, program or application with it.
There are ways to determine the cause of this problem.
Use the Disk Cleanup

The first avenue to take in determining the cause of download inability is to clean your "C:" drive with your computer's "Disk Cleanup" application.
To find it, click "Start", then follow "Programs," "Accessories" and then "System Tools."
Disk Cleanup will clean your hard drive by eliminating broken file fragments and unnecessary files. These can cause your downloads to be slow and, sometimes, broken.

Antivirus Programs
Another culprit that can prevent downloads are antivirus or antispyware applications that you have installed. Shut those down, then attempt your download again.
If the download completes, then remove the mentioned applications.

Start-Up Programs Sometimes, start-up programs can keep your download from completing.
If you are running Windows Vista, click on Windows Defender, then "Tools" and check "Software Explorer."
Then select "Start-up Programs."
If you find a program that is not necessary to run at start-up, click "Disable."
Then click "Yes" to confirm your choice.

Other Programs
Disable all other programs, then try the download again.
If your download can be completed upon the disabling of these programs, and they are nonessential to your Internet sessions, then keep them disabled via your task manager.

Explorer Add-Ons
Open your "Start" menu, then point your mouse on "Programs."
From the pop-up menu, mouse over "Accessories" and then "System Tools."
Then click on "Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)."
If you are not running any add-ons (a page will appear informing you), then this is not an issue with downloading.

Considerations
If none of these allow you to download efficiently, consider trying a new browser such as "Firefox" or "Opera."
Also, consider the possibility that the page from which you are downloading may have an internal error that can cause the download to be aborted.

I cant connect to internet but i installed the necessary driver


To connect to the Internet you need a few extra things aswell as a network card.
1. You need to sign up with an Internet service provider.
2. Connect a LAN cable from your computer to the DSL or cable modem
3. You need a DSL or cable modem and connect and configure the modem to inaccordance with your Internet service provider's instructions.
4. Install Internet Explorer if it has not been done.
5. If everything has been done correctly, when you open Internet Explorer youcan access the Internet. If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then -
To connect to yourwireless router, the router needs its wireless settings to be configuredwith the SSID, encryption key etc., also the wireless cards in all thelaptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings.Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
