Question about Sager NP9890 Notebook

2 Answers

No wireless networks anymore

My sager NP9890 stopped being able to connect to the internet wirelessly about a week ago. Device manager says the IBM network adapter is "working properly" but no networks are visible. Resetting the network adapter does nothing, disabling it and re-enabling it doesn't work either. What the **** is going on?

I had the same problem. I called Sager, and they said that the network adaptor was probably dead. Because of the cost of repair, Sager suggested getting a USB adaptor. I had one, plugged it in, and network access has been fine since.

I re-installed XP T43 laptop and my wireless does not work


First thing is to check if the wireless device is working. Go to Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device Manager. Click on Network Adapters. Do you see the the Wireless card?
If not in Control Panel click on Network Connections, do you see a Wireless Connection? If not you need to install the correct wireless network driver, Check the IBM site again, there should be another wireless driver (there are a couple of different wireless card installed on T40 series ThinkPads).
THEN
If you succeed in installing the wireless driver and it is enabled.
Then click Control Panel - click on Network Connections - right click on the Wireless Networl Connection - Click on Properties and check if TCP/IP has been installed, if not install it. Check TCP/IP properties - make sure it is set to Obtain an address automatically and Obtain DNS Server address automatically.

Check the wireless settings on your other laptops, use this information to configure the wireless on the T43, ie the SSID, WEP or WAP settings

You should be able to connect to your wireless router and Internet now - let me know how it goes,

Wireless Problem


Kanasai, sounds like the wirless adaptor is turned off, normally this is the result of the power settings sutting it down on batteries to conserve power. you should have a FN key combination to turn it back on , for example on my ASUS its the "FN" key and the "F2" key at the same time.
Basicly you can check the device manager to see if the wireless adaptor is enabled. then look at what software manages the wirless connection

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.
