Question about IBM ThinkPad T41 Notebook
Hello, My laptop (T41) stopped detecting wireless connections. I know these are available since my other computer finds them. Please advise.
Just double check that you have'nt accidently dissabled it by way of a shortcut key or switch on the front of the laptop in some cases. If not go to network connections, then locate your wireless network card and see if it says connected, if not right click and select connect. If still not responding, go to my computer>properties>hardware> device manager and go down the list to network adapters, click on it and see if there is an exclamation mark on it, if so there is a driver problem. If not right click on it, select uninstall, then restart your pc and let windows find it again and install drivers and try connecting to your network again.

Tips for a great answer:
Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.
If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.
Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.
Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.
Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.
Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.
Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.
Restart the computer.
The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.
hope this helps
