Re: wifi on thinkpad
I believe you are getting service interupt this can be caused by other signals in the house or outside blocking you wifi
try moving comp closer to the signal of modem
see if this helps
some wifi's are not stong enough signal and gets disconnected
also someone can be back dooring your wifi signal to steal it
this i would call local cable company you are serviced with and have them test your wifi for intrusions

If you can't find it as a function key and it isn't a hardware switch along the front or side edge, you can always turn off wifi in network and sharing by going to adapter settings or use device manager to disable the device via control panel or computer management.
Are you sure you have a wire card installed? If so, then try this:
Right-click the My Computer icon and select Properties.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
Windows WiFi Fix, Windows Zero Wireless Configuration is one of the best programs to run a WiFi in Windows XP or Vista. Most of the other software packages that come with the different adapters have been poor at best in keeping a connection through Windows. Here is the best guide to get you back up and connected. Windows XP: Click Start Right click on My Computer When a window pops up click on properties Click on the Hardware tab Click Device Manager Click the [+] next to Network Adapters Find your wireless card and right click on it. Click Disable Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning. Continue disabling the device. Wait 30 seconds or so. Right click on your wireless again and click Enable. Exit the device manager. Reconnect to your router. You should now be able to connect to the internet.

I don't know what your background is, but this just indicates what is INSTALLED, not how to fix it - you need to "get" the drivers and THEN your registry (an advanced topic) will have these and they will work.
