My think pad t42 cannot find any wireless networks


If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wirelessconnection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptopprobably did not get an IP address from the wireless router.
To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and thenclick Repair.
This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless cardon the laptop.

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,

IBM THINKPAD T43. I can find the switch for my ibm thinkpad T43


Are you sure you have a wire card installed? If so, then try this:
  1. Right-click the My Computer icon and select Properties.
  2. Click the Hardware tab and press the Device Manager button. The network card should appear under Network Adapters.
    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.
  1. Verify that the radio is enabled.
    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.
    • Most wireless cards will put an icon in the system tray (the line of icons in the lower right corner of your screen). Right click this icon and it may have a menu option to enable/turn on the wireless radio.
    • Some systems come with a Wireless Radio switch to disable the wireless radios. The wireless radio switch is usually located on the front side of the machine. If you are having difficulties with wireless connections, make sure the Wireless Radio switch is set in the On position.

  2. Check for association to an Access Point.
    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.

I need to turn my wirless internetnet option on and cant for my IBM thinkpad thanks


mostly the button is found on the left float side of your laptop 'IBM'. with two icons of a computer. please make sure that the button is on the side of the icon that shows a computer with weaves. so that your able to check the wireless access points you have in your range.
Wireless Connection:
Start > Control Panel > network connection>


Show network connections. If there is an X on wireless connection then connection is disabling and if no X then connection is enable.

make sure its enabled.

Right click on wireless network connection and click view available wireless networks.
You should see a list of available wireless networks


Then select the wireless network that you need to work on and click connect.


An icon in the lower right hand corner of your laptop should eventually appear stating that you are connected.
Then this will show you your wireless connection.

Excellent you connect to your wireless network.
