    Same with me but nothing happens even if I had it plugged in the ac lines using the ac adaptor. It still won't boot.

I have the same problem. actually its a common problem for many T21 and other old IBM laptops.
i searched that you have to take all power (batery, adaptor)
press the power 10 times and press it for 30 secs then reinsert the battery or adaptor and try to power it on.
they say its done to discharge a certain capacitor that got overcharged after overcharging the battery.
that worked for me before but now my T21 wont start any more with this process.

Hi,

To my knowledge an IBM ThinkPad T21 originally was shipped out from the manufacturer without a WiFi networking interface, sorry.

Kind regards.
