Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook

1 Answer

Belkin N1 wireless card stopped working in either port. No lights nothing.

Any ideas on how to fix my IBM T30? My wireless card works fine in other laptops. NO lights and all the efforts of the techs at Staples ended with software issues and still no lights .... Now I can't get past the "remove all install components" and I have no power lights no wireless internet access. I do have wired internet access. .... Any ideas?

    oh.... I forgot to say that it worked fine for one year with no problems. Then 3 hours before a most important presentation, it just didn't power up. Any ideas?

    oh... one more thing I should have typed... my wireless card worked fine in my other presenter's computer. Now I think that is all the facts you need to troubleshoot this issue.

Ok...the IBM is notorious for incompatibility with standard wireless specs. first place to check is wireless card site, for Belkin unit. Get the latest drivers.

then on to IBM site, and get the wireless configuration utility.

Then cross your fingers that IBM, in it's infinite Big Blue wisdom, has not excluded your Belkin from it's list of compatible products.

I'm not surprised it works with other laptops, since most of them sign up for the compatibility IEEE standards.

got backup?

    Well..with that in mind, then I'd suggest that your wireless card has taken an early retirement(another IBM innovation when a valuable resource outlives it's perceived usefulness). Those cards do have a life span, and some get quite warm during regular usage. Do you have another wireless card,by chance, to check the internals on the Thinkpad?

Light wont come on


  • Make sure drivers are installed.

  • Try a different USB plug.
I had an older version of this adapter. One day it just stopped working all together and nothing I did got it to work, on any computer. If the above steps don't resolve your problem, the adapter may have just stopped working all together.

Can not identify Belkin N1 Wireless USB Adaptor on PC


Hi, A couple of things: 1. Have you tried all the USB ports of your desktop PC (front and back)? 2. What is your desktop PC brand/model or at least the motherboard? and What OS please?; 3. If running Windows in the desktop PC, can you please check in your Device Manager if your USB are 2.0? 4. Are you using a USB hub or directly connected to the PC's USB port? Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back with your desktop brand/model/motherboard. Good luck and kind regards.

Belkin N1 Wireless Adaptor not connecting on PC


what the adviser meant was your pc cannot provide enough power to the usb port to power the unit, assuming you have tried other ports and it still wont work; you will need to either purchase a pci usb 2.0 card adapter or purchase a mains powered usb hub and connect to this instead.
