Question about IBM ThinkPad X41 Tablet PC

Wireless LAN Adapter

Hello,
My X-41 tablet's wireless LAN adapter seems to have disappeared. I've tried to reinstall it from the Lenovo website, but it doesn't appear in the device manager afterwards. Also, when I hit fn-F5, I have the option of turning on the bluetooth radio, but there is no option for turning on/off the 802.11 radio. Any thoughts?
Thx
B

Hey there! Because of your particular situation, you may have to perform a hard reset, as it seems the update process didn't complete successfully, leaving your tablet with a corrupt operating system. Before attempting this, please have the tablet charged up all the way so that the reset can complete fully without interruptions.

No wireless adapter


Hi,

Have you check the wireless card under the Device Manager?

Start->Control Panel->Device Manager

Under Device Manager look for Network Adapter there will be sub folders under network adapter look for the wireless device. If its not showing it means that the Device is not working. If you want to make sure try to reinstall the Operating System and after that check again the Device Manager.

Wireless internet access


A wireless 802.11b LAN adapter is included in you tablet, activate it thru Control Panel / Wireless. Unfortunately this is the first generation standard and as such is extremely slow, has very limited range and is no longer supported by a lot of the newer generation devices/hotpoints.

Lenovo x60 wireless problem


Verify that the radio is enabled.
It is possible to disable the transmitter of the wireless card without Device Manager showing any problems.
Note: Follow the instructions provided to enable wireless card.
  • Most wireless cards will put an icon in the system tray (the line of icons in the lower right corner of your screen). Right click this icon and it may have a menu option to enable/turn on the wireless radio.
  • Some systems come with a Wireless Radio switch to disable the wireless radios. The wireless radio switch is usually located on the front side of the machine. If you are having difficulties with wireless connections, make sure the Wireless Radio switch is set in the On position.
  • Check for association to an Access Point.
    If you double-click the previously mentioned system tray icon, the configuration utility of the wireless card will appear. This utility will be able to show the status of the wireless card, showing what channel the card is using and what signal strength is being received. It may be difficult to maintain a connection if signal strength is low due to either interference or distance. For example, interference can be caused by 2.4GHz cordless phones, other Access Points in the area, and physical structures such as load bearing walls or metal partitions.
    Note:
    The utility can be used to configure the wireless card settings, but if using Windows XP Zero Configuration or Access Connections, you will need to use those programs to actually configure the wireless card as they will overwrite the setting of the utility.
