Whenever you do an operating sytem reinstallation, windows itself will only have the basic drivers, and that will not include the network drivers for you to be able to connect to the internet (especially in windows XP). If thats the case you can use another system which has internet connection and go to http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/migr-46258.html to download the driver for your LAN. Save it into a flash drive and install it to the system that you just did an OSRI. Restart the system and try connecting with the cable initially to the router to have internet connection.

Thanks!

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

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.

I can not get win explorer to load a page it is ibm think pad a21m running win 2000. i can't get it to load a page


Are you sure you're connected to the internet? Is your LAN working? Go to control panel, system, hardware, device manager and find your network adapter(s). Click on it and see if it is working. Do you have a wireless? Do the same thing. Access to a USB wireless you could try? Install it, connect to the internet and see what happens. Sonetimes the LAN adapter in the computer will go bad.

IBM Think Pad A21M Sound Drivers For Vista


This appears to have what you are looking for. IBM had no drivers for vista supported on your computer that i could find. However Lenovo does, the steps are pretty self explained. Just after you type in what model and all that stuff and click next be sure to click refine search and select your drivers otherwise you could be looking for awhile. The lan card will fall under network.

Ibm think pad t30


Hi,

To my knowledge, your laptop (IBM ThinkPad X30 2672) does not have any built-in WiFi. It's modes of connection are IrDA, modem, Ethernet, USP, Firewire aside from the regular serial & parallel. This would indicate that if you are wireless you either have a USB dongle or PCMCIA card. Please post back with your WiFi brand/model and your Operating System. Further, please post back likewise your WiFi AP/Router brand/model.

The message "a network cable is unplugged" pertains to the absence of a lan cable connected to your Ethernet port.

Good luck, kind regards and will await your second post.
