If you want to use wireless connection you have to have a wireless router, and you connect your internet cable into the router, so after you can have a wireless connection with your laptop and his wireless card, and you can work with your laptop everywhere in your house.
you can buy a wireless router in every computer shop.
last thing if you have a desktop PC you can connect a new internet cable to the wireless router (type RJ45)
I hope this helps

hi

the T42 does not have WiFi, instead it facilitates internet connection via 16 BIT & 32 Bit PCMCIA slot to install a WiFi card , in order to go on the internet.

The ThinkPad uses the following adapters: v 360, 365X, 380, 600: 16-Bit PCMCIA v T20, T22, T23: 32-Bit CardBus and MiniPCI v T23: 32-Bit CardBus and MiniPCI Daughter Card v T30: 32-Bit CardBus and LAN on Planar Board (LOB) v T4x: 32-Bit CardBus and LAN on Planar Board (LOB). 16- and 32-Bit PC Card adapters are configured during ThinkPad initialization. Network Interface Controller data rates are: v For Token Ring: 4/16 MBps v For Ethernet: 10 Mbps...........16 bit PCMCIA 10/100 Mbps.......32 bit CardBus 10/100 Mbps.......MiniPCI and Daughter Card 10/100 Mbps.......T3x and T40 LOB 10/100/1000 Mbps..T42 LOB The MiniPCI Ethernet adapter is accessed behind a removable plate located on the bottom of the ThinkPad directly above the Model/Type S/N sticker. For T20 and T22, the MiniPCI adapter may be an Ethernet/Modem combination card. The Daughter Card (T23) is secured with two screws and is located next to the MiniPCI modem adapter.

How can i turn on wireless adapter on the IBM thinkpad R40 laptop.I can't see the wireless adapter switch.......the drivers are already installed successfully.Please HELP!!!!!!!!!!!


the r40 has no hardware switch. it has a software switch. you must first determine what type of wifi card if any is installed. most of the stock cards are intel or cisco and the ibm support site has the software used to control them. sometimes, thru the network connections, windows can take control if the drivers are installed

IBM X40 Wireless Radio Keeps Shutting Off


This link will take you to the driver page for your unit. Scroll down to wireless networking and download the latest driver for your machine(there's a couple of different possibilities it could be but you may find that the drivers listed are more recent than the drivers you have loaded on the machine.

Beyond that if you are unable to work out the issues with your wireless you can always purchase a cardbus or USB wireless adapter and disable the onboard wifi.

Post back with you results.

Dell Latitude D610 -- Windows XP Professional


the freeze up problem is due to the limited HHD space or memories. please check your HHD and see how much free sapce you have, and check your memories. the base system came with 256MB, which is too little for anything to work porperly. for you to connected to teh wireless, you should have minimum 1GB of memories. some people may disagree with me, but that is what I found to work better, if you have more than required memories.

T40 does not have wireless network adapter, how should i do to ues the wireless router?


Since your laptop don't have a wireless adapter , first thing that you can do in order for you to use the laptop to the internet with the wireless router is to connect the laptop to the router via CAT5 /Ethernet cable then that should now be able to access the internet , but if you want to make the laptop work wirelessly with out the cable connected to it, you can get a wireless adapter like this from Linksys WPC54G or a WUSB54GC if you have any of this wireless adapter you can now use the laptop wirelessly with the router.....

Hope that helps............

Wireless help please!


Make sure that the WLAN adapter is installed properly. Click on the start button then right click My Computer icon, select properties, go to Hardware tab, click Device Manager button, click the + sign beside Network Adapters, check if you have your wireless adapter listed. If your adapter is not listed you need to reinstall the drivers for it.

Internet Connection


A few years ago, i too had an IBM thinkpad and encountered some issues as well when connecting to the internet.

The IBM 2647 does not have a built in wireless card, meaning that you need to purchase one from your local electronics store to use wireless internet. The software provided with these CD's can often be quite helpful and will help you set up the connection.

The 2647 only supports an analog modem connection, and the modem in the area you are attempting to connect via ethernet may use a digital modem. Adapters are available although they are quite pricey (ranging from $200 and up.)


Hope this helps.

Help me with IBM A21M Wireless problem.


Make sure that there are NO electrical devices between you and the wireless router. Some electrical devices will mess your signal up.
(cordless phones are known to mess with them) too.
Microwaves interfere with the signal from your router. Interference means a low quality signal.
The following steps help you troubleshoot a bad wireless connection. Stop following the steps when the connection problem is solved:
1. Refresh the wireless connection that is giving you trouble.
2. Temporarily disable the firewall or Internet security software on the computer that is having connection troubles.
3. Open the wireless connection manager and make sure that the SSID is correct. Also make sure that encryption settings and keys match the settings in your WAP (Wireless Access Point).
4. Restart DHCP (Dynamic Host Control Protocol) on your WAP; if necessary reboot the WAP.
5. If the troublesome Wi-Fi adapter is removable - such as a USB, cardbus, or Ethernet bridge adapter - remove or disconnect it and disconnect any power cords. Then reconnect the device.
6. Right-click the My Computer icon in the Windows Start menu and choose Properties.
7. In the System Properties dialog box, click the Hardware tab and then click the Device Manager button (see Figure 1).
8. In the Device Manager window, click the plus-sign next to Network Adapters (see Figure 2).
If you see a yellow exclamation mark next to the name of the adapter, something is wrong. Right-click it and choose Uninstall, restart Windows, and then re-install the driver software as described in the manufacturer's instructions.
