SOURCE: dont know how to turn on the wireless to my ibm think pad t40

Hi, there is a switch usually on T series laptop. But some models dont so if you dont find a swtich anywhere near the front or the sides, you need to reinstall the drivers. Desactivate the device and enable it again may do the trick (Start->settings->Network Connections-> Wireless network connection (right-click then desable... wait until you see the device going gray then right-click enable. Try that and if you still have issues, let me know.

SOURCE: t40 2373 no wireless connection

Hi it sounds like your driver is missing or corrupt , this may be the case if u have recently installed windows, go to control panel click on sytem icon then click on device manager button under the hardware tab, have a look then under network adapters to see if there is a yellow warning icon if so make a note of the name and you should be able to download the driver from this location. its near the bottom under networking wireless.

SOURCE: can't connect to internet on my IBM T40 think

You need to supply some more information, are you trying to connect wired or wirelessly? For either first see if your network adapters are installed. Right click on "my computer" either on desktop or start menu. Then choose properties then hardware then device manager this is slightly different depending on your operating system but you need to get into the "device manager" Google it if you cant find it. i.e "how to get into the device manager in windows vista" Once in look for the "network adapters" tab drop down the + sign and see if they are both listed and there are no "!" going thru them, if there are then you need to download drivers, if not and they are installed properly then to connect "wireless" you should see a series of bars by the clock on the right side of the taskbar some computers have a switch to turn the adapter on or off some have a key combination such as fn+f2 or f5 etc., there will be a wireless icon on the key to identify it. If on then when you left click on the bars you can choose veiw available networks, choose yours and highlight it and choose connect, if it is a secure network you will need your network key or passphrase. Wired: just plug it in to the ethernet port and it will try and connect to the network. If you are getting a limited or no connectivity icon you must reset your modem and router in this order. Disconnect (power) to your modem and router if cable unscrew coax cable also. all lights out screw cable back in, then power on your modem..WAIT for all lights to come on solid (with dsl the dsl light should be on and solid not blinking) once your modem is up then plug in your router wait for all lights to come on. Thsi should put your computer online. If not, open internet explorer then go to tools / internet options / lan settings make sure that proxy server is NOT checked. If it is uncheck it and choose "automatically detect settings" above it. Most likely if it was checked you have some rogue phony antispyware on there and your computer needs to be scanned for issues. one last thing you can always right click on the intenet icon by the clock and choose "repair" wired or wireless it will reset the adapter and correct the problem. I think I covered everything not knowing your OS

I have an IBM think pad T40 that does absolutely nothing when I try to turn it on. It's actually my daughters, she sid it was working just fine then she shut it down and when she came back an hour later it...


Try taking the batter out and booting using just the power cord and Vice Versus'. Also when the power is plugged in does the charging light (Battery Indicator) blink or light up? If you know the Power Supply is good, then the Mother Board may have fried. If it's under warranty, take the Hard Drive out and send it in.

How to fix the wireless controler in a think pad


When you download the T40 device drivers from the IBM/Lenevo WEB site make sure you select your model laptop and, they need to be the XP or Vista versions of the drivers you need.
When you run the driver programs they will be unzipped/expanded to the hard drive in a folder c:\drivers. Then you need to open the various folders and run the setup programs to install the various drivers.
NOTE - The T40 series laptops come with various different manufacturers devices (eg. there are a few different wireless model LANs) and if one version driver doesn't work you need to install a different one. It is a bit of trial and error to find the right one

Are the activity lights blinking like the computer is doing something? If so the monitor may be disconnected from the unit or damaged. If so this is a pc repair issue, and a little tricky to do on your own.

Wireless without a cable


Some T40 series (especially T42) laptops have built-in wireless cards and you only need to install the wireless driver.
If you don't have a built in wireless card you can purch a PCMCIA wireless card and inset it into the PCMCIA slot on the laptop.
These cards are common and are available from several manufactories such as Netgear and DLink.
