We can't get our IBM T30 to connect with our Linksys router . The computer has a 3com wireless card


Has the Wireless card ever worked attached to another wireless router?

Is the card an internal miniPCI card, and is it an official IBM card for your region? Thinkpads check whether the card is for the correct region before configuring them in the Windows drivers.

Are you using the Thinkpad Assistant Wireless tool. I have found that it appears to be impossible to configure this software for 64 bit WEP or WPA PSK authentication.

Sony VAIO internal wireless driver causes computer to lock up


There is a possibility you have a faulty wireless card. I would go with a external PCMCIA wireless card. Don't forget to disable the internal wireless card in the BIOS.

Download a program called Netstumbler.
This will show if your wireless is doing anything at all firstly.
If the card is internal then check if the wireless cards antenna's are connected still. Sometimes they are not on there correctly, just sitting there and look like they are connected.
If you can see the access point with this program then check the router to see if the access method hasn't been limited locking out your card from connecting. Normally that is listed in the wireless access list by MAC address etc.

Networking is more complex then most realise, but the info above should help you to start with.

A35 internal modem does not work


There may also be a key combination on your keyboard to enable/disable it. check for that first.

If that doesn't do it then i would reinstall the wireless driver from http://pcsupport.toshiba.com for your model and see if that helps.

Most wireless issues are software not hardware but if none of that does it the easiest thing is to buy a PC card.

Good luck!

Toshiba Satellite M40 Internal Wireless Card replacement


On the bottom of the laptop there will most likely be 2 panels to remove. One will be the hard drive, the other will be your RAM modules and most likely your wireless card. It'll probably be in the middle. Open this up, your wireless card will have two wires plugged into it that you'll have to unplug. Then on each side there is a tab that you have to click outward, then the card will flip up. Then you can just pull it outward. Do the reverse for installing the new card.
