Question about IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook

Wireless/Wi-Fi? Does the T40 thinkpad have wireless or Wi-fi? I inherited it for work and am trying to figure out if it has either features. It has a wireless icon just below the screen but i can't figure out how to turn it on.

Yes is does, it also has bluetooth according to reviews!

    Is there a wi-fi swtich on thinkpad r52?

    IBM load there own set of software on there notebooks which take care of networking lan and wi-fi, I have found if try to use the windows native wireless checker it does not pick the networks up. Try using the IBM program either in the taskbar near the clock or in the start menu.
    Also in Device Manager does the wi-fi device show up.
    There also may be a light that indicates wi-fi is on on at the front or or above the keyboard if its off let me know.
    Other possibility is to uninstall the driver for the wireless device restart and let it reinstall automatically.

    Not able to type in network key for wireless

    1) If you are using the Windows Default Wireless Network Connection. Open the windows where you you will see a list of all wi-fi connections near by your location. On the left panel(Related Tasks) click on "Change Advance Settings" >> Wireless Network Connection Properties >> Click "Wireless Network" Tab >> from the Preferred Networks: list, remove the wi-fi connection you are trying to connect. Once your W-Fi connection settings are removed. You can either add it manually clicking on the Add button and entering all informaiton manually, or from the wi-fi network list click the network name it will ask you to enter the netowkr key....


    2) if you are using any other Wi-Fi connection application, like the Intel's, follow the same procedure. delete the settings and try connecting again.

    I have an HP Pavillion DV4000. My built in wireless is not working. The light at the top of the keyboard does not come on. How do I get it to work?

    you can see the wi-fi turn on and it will work if you install already the wireless driver...its only the problem with the switch combination between wireless..there some option also for enabling the can press FN key + wi-fi botton.
