Press the "Fn" and "F5" key to turn your Bluetooth and wireless radios on.
PS: "Windows 2008"??? - Are you running server software on your T43? - you might want to check that...

You do have BOTH the laptop and the device in discovery mode, dont you? Some devices have pairing passwords that must be entered in order to connect them. Phones must first have bluetooth turned on, then put in discovery mode. Phones typically ask you to set a password. Some devices such as ear buds have a password hardcoded in the device (usually 0000). Try that next. Finally, try uninstalling the bluetooth device on the laptop, then reinstalling it.

As you may know, IBM ThinkPad uses a smalleeprom (ATMEL 24RF08) to store different OEM issues like serial number,UUID, etc. The supervisor password (SVP) is stored also into thislittle chip. So, anybody should figure that he needs to read the eepromin order to find the password string. The first problem is that 24RF08is not an ordinary eeprom. The second is that the password is writtenin a special scan code.
To read this properly you need a software (and an interface) specially designed for this eeprom.
The software is R24RF08 (eeprom reader) and IBMpass (password decoder).

Are you sure you have a wire card installed? If so, then try this:
Note: If the card has a exclamation mark over a yellow background, then this is an indication that the card is experiencing a problem. Go to Driver download step 5.
It is possible to disable the transmitter of the wireless card without Device Manager showing any problems.
Note: Follow the instructions provided to enable wireless card.
If you double-click the previously mentioned system tray icon, the configuration utility of the wireless card will appear. This utility will be able to show the status of the wireless card, showing what channel the card is using and what signal strength is being received. It may be difficult to maintain a connection if signal strength is low due to either interference or distance. For example, interference can be caused by 2.4GHz cordless phones, other Access Points in the area, and physical structures such as load bearing walls or metal partitions.
Note: The utility can be used to configure the wireless card settings, but if using Windows XP Zero Configuration or Access Connections, you will need to use those programs to actually configure the wireless card as they will overwrite the setting of the utility.
