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.

I don't think the T30 has an actual physical switch for the wireless. The ThinkPad button will show you how to do the wireless setup/repair. If you have Bluetooth on it, the Bluetooth indicator should be near the hinge.

Use Fn + F5 (most thinkpads) to enable your wireless.
If you are used to a menu, visit www.lenovo.com (the producer of IBM Thinkpads for ages) and download System Update (a program which will download a lot of updates and drivers for your Thinkpad)
