If the laptop has wireless, there is either a small switch on any of the sides or the switch is electronic. If theres no switch, check out your function keys. ex: Fn+F5(and find wireless small blue icon)

Where do I find the wireless button on an IBM thinkpad X31?


Some laptops don't have a wireless button or switch. If that's the case they control the wireless by keystrokes. Look onboth sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on. Look on both sides and in front for a wireless button. Look just above the keyboard for a wireless button.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can togglethe wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN functionkey located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit willhave the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a towerwith the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will displayWireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

Where is the button to turn on this machine to the wireless connection... used to work! BUT my daughter loaned it to me (leftover college computer!) to use while my other computer is in the shop!


Hi

thank you for your query

The wireless buttons on IBM's are generally at the front of the laptop i.e. the thin edge of the laptop facing towards you

I have an IBM ThinkPad R40e and there is a question mark in the ethernet conection i have already install the driver but still I can´t conect to the broadband ethernet. Is this a bug or daughter...


It may that your wireless card can't handle the encryption on the wireless network you are trying to connect to. Thinkpad R40's are limited to WEP encryption (see Lenovo's/IBM's site http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-41929). If your network is using WPA, for example, you won't be able to connect. Usually it will say something about not being able to find a certificate if this is the problem.

Where is the wireless button on t42 thinkpad


There's no hardware switch to activate and deactivate the wireless networking, but pressing Fn and F5 brings up a menu that allows you to turn Bluetooth on/off, WiFi on/off or both. It seems like IBM isn't satisfied with standard toggle buttons like other notebook manufacturers - even pressing the Fn and F7 buttons to switch between internal and external screens, brings up a menu with multiple display settings and resolutions.
Hope this helps,
David
