Where is the 'Wireless Switch' on the IBM T42


The T42 has a bulit-in wireless network adapter and a LAN network card. T42s most likely have an Intel wireless card or less likely a Cisco wireless card.
Your wireless network adapter may have been disabled in the BIOS
and/or
The drivers for the wireless network controller has not been installed.

To check the network adapter go to the Control Panel, Click on System, click on Hardware Tab then Device Manager. Then scroll down and click on Network adapters. If you don't see your network controller or you see a yellow ? against Other devices for the Network controller. Then either it has been disabled and/or the driver was not installed.

To get the driver for the network controller you need to dowload it from the IBM/Lenovo WEB site their support/download page from a computer that has Internet access. Make sure you select your laptop model and the driver for your Windows version.
Install the driver and you then need to configure the wireless adapter to suit your wireless router settings before you can access the Internet.

This will help. Thanks please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively .Thank you for using Fixya

IBMThinkPad T40 Wont connect to wireless networks.


Hello, if you see a yellow exclamation mark it means device drivers are not installed or are incorrect.
below is the link for IBM/Lenovo site that lists all the drivers for Thinkpad T40/T41. Go to that linkand scroll down to " Wireless Networking" and select the appropriate drivers: eg: Make sure it under T40 section, and not T41 since they are listed side by side.
since i am not sure which exact wireless card your T40 has i am posting this main link where it lists all options.
I would start with "ThinkPad 802.11bg wireless LAN Mini PCI adapter" if this doesn't work try next one in the list.
here is the link: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-46258.html#wireless

I hope this helps, let me know if there is a problem.

Kind reagrds,

I have a laptop running 802,11 g/b and vista and I Cant connect to linksys wag160n wireless router(802,11 n). laptop sometimes recognises network but when I try to connect it wont. could you help ?


Hi, You cannot connect across wireless protocols. In other words to connect to 802.11 n you need an "n" adapter.

Now, the router should be backward compatible & provide wireless g/b but you may find that when you search for networks it will be listed as a seperate network name (from the same router)

Try searching for this other network. Your router documentation should advise you of its default name & any set up process

Please make sure the drivers for your wireless network adapter is installed.
1) go to Device manager - rightl click on my computer and click on properties, select HARDWARE tab then click on Device manager
2) See if the wireless adapter is displayed under Network adapters. If there is an yellow exclamation mark on the Network adapter, it means the drivers for your adapter are not installed.
3) If you find the drivers ok, then make sure that the wireless radio button is turned on. Usually the wireless radio can enabled or disabled from a tray Icon on right side of the system. Most of the system also come with a on/off switch for the wireless radio which is basically on the front side of the laptop.

If the above does not help please revert with the model number of your system and I will try some other steps for you

How do I use blue tooth on my laptop IBM T41?


It depends upon what you mean by "USE".

0. Do you HAVE bluetooth?
- there is a bluetooth light over the keyboard (of course probably not lit)
- there is a bluetooth identifier on the bottom of the laptop
- the FN+5 key brings up a menu of (possibly, wireless) and Bluetooth.

0.1 if NOT then you need to ADD a bluetooth USB adapter

Usage:
1. Use to synchronize a PIM or cell phone or other DATA connection
- This should be fine; you need to solve (0) first (that you HAVE the hardware) then the driver, then have it running

2. Use a bluetooth headset to listen to audio.
- this you can *NOT* do with the default IBM bluetooth stack - I tried, an "audio adapter" for the bluetooth was simply not supplied by IBM. It would require changing to some non-IBM bluetooth stack, and I chose not to do that so never got a bluetooth headset working with my T41.

Computer says IBM wireless adapters (802.11 or bluetooth) not ins


Hello Kangarootrib,
Since you bought the ThinkPad second hand and the software installation disc did not come with it, you should go to the IBM ThinkPad manufacturer's web site. Once there, look for your specific model and search for the proper drivers and download and install them on your current computer. Drivers are basically small bits of code that tell the operating system how to communicate with hardware devices, which when you purchase products new come with a CD that contains these instructions for your computer to be able to communicate with the device. Hope this helps and please let us know if you need further assistance.

P.S. If you would not mind, could you please rate my help as I would really appreciate it. Thank you

Thinkpad r40 - wireless disappeared


Go to the control panel, then System, then Hardware tab, then Device Manager. Then Network adapters - you should have two network adapters one LAN and one wireless.
If most likely have one, the LAN adapter and a yellow ? against a network adapter - this will be a wireless adapter (its not installed)

Check your BIOS and make sure the wireless card is enabled.
You need to download from the IBM/Lenove WEB site the wireless driver (there may be several types that is installed for your model laptop). Make sure you select the correct Windows version driver.
When you run the driver,it will uncompress and copy to your hard drive in C:\drivers. You can then install the driver from this directory. If it doesn't work then repeat with another driver, most likely one that works will be the Intel one.

New os installed..


Erm, install adapter? I mean, seriously, go the website of the manufacturers that made your bluetooth adapter and search for vista compatible drivers for your blutooth adapter. Once you get a hold of it. install it. It shouldn;t be an issue once you have the proper driver. however, please do revert back to me if you face difficulties. Thank you.
