Wireless Problems with IBM Thinkpad X40

Question: Wireless Problems with IBM Thinkpad X40

I have an IBM Wireless X40. I have been using a Belkin wireless card to get wireless signal and to connect to a wireless network but the connection is usually very unreliable. My friend suggested that maybe my laptop actually has wireless built into it, and that I am therefore creating a conflict by trying to use my Belkin card and using Belkin to connect to a wireless network.Can anyone give advice on how i should use wireless with my laptop?Thanks!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Wireless Problems with IBM Thinkpad X40

If the laptop has a wireless adapter built in and you plug a second adapter in, the Network Connections folder should show two "Wireless Network Connections". Device Manager should also display details of two separate wireless adapters. Having two installed shouldn't actually cause a conflict and you can always right click one and select "Disable".Changing the channel number used by your wireless network might improve stability - the default is normally "11", try changing to 8 or 6 in the router's settings to see if that improves stability. Also ensure that you don't have cordless or mobile phones located close to either the router or the laptop, as these can interfere with the radio signal.

Hello forum,I have a new Thinkpad T30 from work and whatever I do I don't seem to be able to get it to connect to my wireless network.A wireless card is definitely installed and in device manager is apparently "working properly" but when I try to list available networks it does not find any and responds as if the network adapter is switched off...for example it does not make any effort to even search for them like laptops usually do when all is working well.I know the wirless network is fine because my other laptop finds it and connects without trouble.Its like the network adapter is not even switched on...but I cannot find a switch to turn the adapter on or off.Any ideas?Thanks:-)

Answer:Thinkpad wireless problems

Make sure the IBM utility is installed and running that handles the wireless facility. My acer wouldnt connect in exactly the same way it took me weeks to work out why. I cannot remember the name of the IBM utility but its available on the restore CDs or click hereI could find no other work arounds for this problem myself.

Because I had a virus on my laptop, I repaired my laptop by restoring the factory settings. When I started my computer again, I didnt had a wireless network list in my ' Network Connections ' .On my IBM thinkpad x31 I get the error message: IBM Wireless adapters (802.11 or Bluetooth) are not installed on this system.
I have tried to download drivers to the laptop, by using a USB but they dont make any sence to my computer.

Please can you help me?

Greetings everyone, I have recently done a clean install of Vista Ultimate on my laptop with SP1. Once completed, downloaded and ran theThinkvantage System Update app and let it rip. Got all the IBM software, and then untied my laptop from its wired tether.Wireless ran OK for a little while, then would intermittently just drop all data. I would be durfing fine (able to ping a site like Google at under 100ms). When I lose connectivity... I couldn't ping an outside server like Google... but also couldn't even get a ping off of my router/gateway.Proceeded to go back on the wired connection, and my connection was back to normal. I wan Windows Update and fully updated all drivers and programs, now I cannot get anything. I have a 2007-63U model T60 with the Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG adaptor. While the Access Connections and Vista's wireless manager show me as connected, DHCP assigned IP, full signal strength... I cannot load even the simplest of sites or ping out. Occasionally (maybe once every 5 minutes) I'll get a moment where I can load a page, but it quickly goes away. I tried System Restore to an earlier point, manually removing the software and drivers and re-installing, all with no luck. Anyone have a solution? Thanks much!Alex

I have an IBM thinkpad T30 that I bought with no hard drive. I have installed a hard drive and installed Windows XP. All drivers installed sucessfully from the IBM website except the wireless drivers. I installed the chipset drivers first. It doesn't show up as a network adapter in device manager it shows as network controller with the yellow icon next to it. I have used 3DP and belarck to identify the card but the manufacturer drivers don't work either. I know it not a problem with the card because the wireless connection wizard in Puppy Linux detects the card with ease. In Puppy Linux it shows the card as an Intersil Prism card?? Any help or advice would be appreciated.

I am using Thinkpad R61 (Type 7755 A61) T7300 @2.00 GHz Ram 1GB.I used to have Windows Vista Home Basic but it was too slow so I decided to switch to XP.But after I reinstall Windows XP I found more problems occur on my laptop. I download all the drivers from Lenovo Website. But then my wireless works for a while, after that it just lost the connection but the light still on. Then all the bottom right panel near the wireless icon freeze. I cannot click anything. I need to restart my Windows again. Then it works and disconnects again. It's been like this everyday, many times aday.  I uninstall IBM ThinkVantage but the problem did not solve. Sometimes when I restarts the wireless internet works but my keyboard or sounds do not work.It's so annoying. If anyone have these problems, please advice me at once. I cannot do my work on this unstable laptop anymore. Thanks alot

Hi all,

I have an end user with a Lenovo Thinkpad T61 that cannot locate the wireless network we have set up in our office. "No wireless networks were found in range" is the message we get when trying to locate our network using the Wireless Network Connection utility. I checked Device Manager to see if his wireless card (Intel(R) Wireless WiFi Link 4965AG) was disabled or not functioning properly, but it is working fine. All the required drivers are also installed.

The router we use at the office is a Linksys WRT160N V3. Anyone have any ideas how to solve this problem?

Answer:Wireless problems with Lenovo Thinkpad T61

First, welcome to TechSpot, good to have you here. I?m somewhat new myself, so I?m still figuring things out. Now, I know this may be elementary for you, but here?s a link to the Windows Vista networking help page: http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/help/88ea056e-664a-4c3d-b977-13f79cb4dedb1033.mspx.

I?m not terribly familiar with the T61 (worked mostly with 43s). Does it have a physical WiFi on/off switch? Sometimes those can be the culprits.

Cheers,

Hello, I am looking for a little bit of help. I have a Lenovo Edge 15 0319-46U laptop I recieved from my educational institution. I have had the laptop since fall of 2012. I've never had a single issue with the laptop except a month ago I noticed my wireless 1x1 b/g/n card stopped working. I'm well knoledged in computers and have already tried updating the drivers but I ran into an issue. My wireless card is no longer being shown on the Device Manager list under Network Adapters or "Unknown Devices", I only see my Wired gigabit card. I went into Bios, checked the button (did all the begginer stuff) and no dice. Wireless still does not work. I went ahead and ordered a new Intel Wireless card for said laptop and made sure the interface worked correctly, so my question is does anyone know of any fixes that could work even if the adapter is not shown on anywhere in the computer? And would anyone know if the Intel 7260-HMWNBWB Dual band card would be compatible with this machine? Thanks in advance for an answer.

Answer:Thinkpad Edge 15 0319-46U wireless problems

Hello and welcome,
 
The ThinkPad BIOS has a wifi whitelist.  A card has to be a whitelisted model and have a Lenovo FRU number or the laptop will refuse to boot.  Generic cards - even with the correct model number - won't boot on an unmodified BIOS.
 
Page 113 of the Hardware Maintenance Manual  lists the compatible models and FRU numbers.

Hey guys! I seem to have a persistent problem with my two Lenovo Thinkpad X200, which I simply can't manage to figure it. I have recently restored the computers to factory settings, which meant downgrading from Windows 8 to Windows Vista Business 32-Bit.Now, everything with the installation went as planned until I had to test if everything was working. A lot of the drivers seem to be missing and since I do not still have the original manufacturer's disc, I do not know what to do. I downloaded the ethernet driver from Lenovo's website and that is now fully functional.I have also tried everything in regards to making the wireless internet work, but without any luck. When I try connecting to the wireless internet, Windows simply can't detect any networks and when I try using Windows function to find a solution to the problem it simply says "This computer does not have a wireless network adapter installed and configured".   I have tried downloading all the wireless lan driver for Windows Vista 32-bit from Lenovo's website, but I still cannot get the wireless network to work. Any help would be highly appreciatedThank you in advance

Answer:ThinkPad T400 (6475-FP1) - Can't turn off Bluetooth & Wireless problems

As far as bluetooth, Fn + F5 will let you turn off the radio. You can also go into the BIOS under security/I-O Port Access and disable it. As far as the 5100 wireless card, there is a note on the intel site that says this: "If your system had Windows 7 and Intel PROSet/Wireless Software installed prior to upgrading to Windows 8, then Intel PROSet/Wireless Software will not install the first time. You need to install Intel PROSet/Wireless Software a second time for it to install correctly." I would suggest the newest drivers from the Intel site. If you go here, they will make suggestions:http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect/wireless

Hi everyone, I'm after some advice about what to do abut my laptop's wireless card. I've got a ThinkPad L430, which is a couple of years old but I won in a raffle and have just started using from brand new. The laptop came with Windows 8, and from the start had issues with the Wireless card (ThinkPad 1x1 11b/G/N Wireless LAN PCI Express Half Mini Card Adapter) randomly appearing and disappearing from Device Manager. When adding some RAM I resecured the wireless card and that seemed to make it more reliable, but still the signal went in and out regularly. I've since updated to Windows 10, and while the rest of the laptop works great, the wirless has become so unreliable that I have turned to using a USB WiFi dongle. Now, while previously unused, my L430 is out of warranty to get this repaired - so I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations to replace the current wireless card with? I would prefer not to always have to fill a USB socket. Thanks for any pointers!

my thinkpad w500 wireless card can find wireless AP , can not connect AP. If my wireless card is bad ?how to diagnose it ?thanks

Answer:my thinkpad w500 wireless card can find wireless AP , can not connect AP.

If the AP is old, check for firmware updates. Possibly your W500 is not on the same subnet as the AP due to not getting an IP address. Be sure DHCP is configured correctly. Since you know the IP of the AP, check the current IP of the laptop. If it's different in any part but the last 3 digits, then that is why you're not connecting. To try and fix that, remove any wireless AP you may have confiured in Vista to connect to automatically. Unplug the AP for a minute, then plug it back in. Give it a minute to boot. Now try and find the AP and connect. If still no luck and you're still not on the same subnet, you need to set the IP to a static address. Go into the w TC/PIP ivp4 properties and set the IP to an address in the correct subnet. For example, if your AP is set to 192.168.1.1, set the computer to 192.168.1.100. Be sure to use the same subnet mask on the W500 as you see in the AP. Then set the DNS to the gateway address for now. Now see if you can connect. Try a ping to the AP.

I am having great difficulty trying to find the correct driver for my Thinkpad x40.  I've tried all the choices on the Lenovo site for the x40 but all of them still don't show up under the Network Adapter list in the Device Manager.  The Ethernet driver worked with no problem. The Network Controler under Other Devices continually displays with the big yellow question mark after installation of the Setup.exe file. I recently reformatted my laptop with a copy of Windows XP, not the one that came with the laptop.  I don't have any of the orignial software unfortunately.  After the installation I began the process of installing all of the drivers.  The only one that does not work is the Wireless driver.  Before I reformatted the hard drive I had no issues with wireless so it's hard to believe that the card could have gotten damaged.   Do you think reformatting the OS would damage the wireless card? Anyway, I am at my end of my rope and don't know what else to do?  Can anyone help me please?

In Access Connections I cannot connect to a wifi router, and the Repair button cannot turn on the radio. Should I delete from Device Manager and reboot/pray? I hate the Windoze thingy - can I remove it?  I don't need their help, thanks. Separate issues -   Can I remove the annoying Cantukus or whatever it's called?  Useless and annoying!   Can I get old Task Manager back, that shows all of my cores separately?   Can I get old Start menu back?  Hate those idiotic tiles.

My company has bought 150 ThinkPad's, L420 model, with Windows 7 Pro OA installed but NO recovery DVD.The problem comes when we had to reinstall some of the laptops, because we used 4 different types of Windows 7 Pro 64bits kits (downloaded from MSDN), all of them NOT willing to accept the serial no. from the sticker under the battery.We tried to contact Lenovo Customer Support here in Romania, using the contacts we find on Lenovo.com: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/feedback/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-76613. The surprise is that the phone number is NOT IN USE. So:- we got 150 paper weights for the price of 150 laptops.- we payed for Windows 7 Pro and we got almost nothing.- we trusted Lenovo to help us after sale and we were wrong. Now, my question is:Do you think we will ever buy again or advise someone to buy something from Lenovo?

Hello, just wondering what the differences are between the two?  I've heard Thinkpad's is based on Realtek technology.  What are the advantages of each? Thanks!

Answer:Thinkpad Wireless b/g/n vs Intel Wireless N-1000

I'm not a Lenovo employee and do not know how there manufacturing process works; but, if I had to guess I'd say the ThinkPad b/g/n is probably whatever wifi solution (similar to Intel's) they have at time of manufacture. Dell is notorious for doing this, two computers of the same model number can have two different wifi controllers. If you use windows and do not care about WiDi (Intel's wireless video/audio streaming solution) odds are you do not really care since any performance difference will probably be largely theoretical. If you are wanting to run Linux, BSD etc on the machine you probably want to go with Intel's option as there drivers are open scr (see http://intellinuxwireless.org/?n=Info)

I have a huge problem with my Lenovo ThinkPad W520 (Machine#4270CTO, SN * 11/07) purchased on US website in August 2011. Here is the story below:
 
In late December 2011 my laptop hardrive stopped working and as I am in Georgia(Caucasus) I went to the Lenovo Authorised Warranty Service Provider (not naming the company). They made the harddrive replacement very quickly and i was happy back then.
 
By start of January 2012 another problem came - my keyboard stopped completely working and as before I went to the service provider again and the faulty part was also changed in 2 weeks time.
 
By the end of January several problems occurred all together: 
1. The speakers stopped working completely they just give an itching sound.
2. The track pad 2 buttons are completely unresponsive (not working) and the same 2 buttons on the keyboard - when I turn the trackpad off completely the keyboard buttons work.
3. 2 days ago computer completely went off and it is not starting at all. Power button lights on (green) than a flash turns on and immediately off and nothing happens besides the power button light .
 
I contacted Authorized Warranty Service Provider again some days ago but unfortunately they give me the following answer: They have a limit for service from Lenovo 1 times per computer which means they can order only 1 part replacement a month and as last keyboard replacement they made was on 12th of February 2012 I have to wait.

I have had similar problems, and would recommend the following:You probably wont get a resolution from the forums, only sympathy (which can help!).Keep calling anyone you can find to do with Lenovo warranty about the issue utill you get a decent response. I was calling every day for 2 months.  The process was so painful, I now live with the non-critical problems rather than deal with them.Next time consider Dell.  Their 3ry warranties have been outstanding - shipping parts to me anywhere in Eurpe within 48 hours, or collecting from my office and returning fixed 2 hours later, even in Gibraltar.

Okay, I boot up it sees my access point no problem. I have my linksys WAP11 set up to only allow access to certain Mac Addresses. I enter the Mac address to my new thinkpad and it connects great. But every once in a while (like today) I cannot connect. My daughters PC is connected through a USB wireless card and I have never messed with it since I installed the set-up well over a year ago. Her Computer is connected fine but my thinkpad shows a great connection (99% under the IBM wireless icon and excellent strength under the windows icon) but I cannot get access to the web. What gives? Which software is controlling the wireless connection? The box under wireless connection properties in windows is not check to let windows manage the connection so I am assuming the IBM software is managing it. But why does it work some of the times and not all the time? When I plug in a lan cable it gets access just fine. I double checked every thing I could think of. The only concerning thing is that the IBM connection software shows another network availble with the same SSID. This is in the profile (whatver that means) My daughters computer does not detect any other availbel networks and neither does my dell laptop but each of those wireless connections are managed by windows. Any input would be great. Also any input on how to access networks at hotels and airports would be great too. Sometimes it works but not all the time.

I just recently bought a ThinkPad T40 2373-8CU. It says that it is wireless upgradeable, but I don't understand exactly what they mean by that. Does it mean that I don't need to use a wireless card, or just simply that I can upgrade to wireless with a card.

Answer:Thinkpad t-40 wireless?

it means that the wireless card is not installed in your machine, but all the internal antennas are there for the upgrade, if you wish to upgrade to internal wireless access.

I have an old Thinkpad T30 that is running XP and works fine. The only issue is i can not get the correct wireless card driver for it. I have been to countless sites showing drivers and downloaded and installed and still have the dreaded ? next to "other". The thing is it is calling it a netrwork controller and shows and second unknown device directly under it which I assume is the actuall wireless card. The direct cable connection works fine. Any help with this would be gresatly appreciated.
 

Answer:Thinkpad T30 wireless

If you are talking about an integrated adapter get the driver from the Lenovo (IBM) web site. If an external card get the driver from the card manufacturer's site.

Hi All-

So I have a Thinkpad R31 I acquired, it's from the age where wireless wasn't very popular, so it doesn't include it.

I have a Belkin Wireless G PC Card I use in it. It works perfectly fine, but it's a little annoying jetting out of the side like it does.

My question is this:

Is there a small form factor PC Card I could buy for wireless?

OR

This machine has what I think is a mini PCI slot. (I attached a picture-sorry about the lousy quality) I found this on newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833345002&Tpk=miniPCI

Would it work in it without an issue? Is there another wireless mini PCI card I could buy that might be better?

EDIT: It appears IBM whitelists only their cards in the BIOS. I found a workaround I think http://www.command-tab.com/2006/02/26/unauthorized-wireless-cards/ ...so would any minipci card with this bios hack work?

Thanks,

Joe

Hello,I have a Thinkpad T43p with wireless g built into it.  I am looking to upgrade it to Wireless n.  I can always just disable the internal wireless and get a notebook adapter, but I don't want to do that.  I would like a mini PCI Wireless n adapter so I can continue to use the built in wireless.  I looked at a spec sheet I found here for the T43-T43p, and found a part number for a wireless n adapter, put it into a search engine, and came up with some items.  I now have three different adapters that match the spec sheet,and supposedly fit my Laptop,  but none do.  Can some one please tell me if I'm just throwing my money away on phantom parts, or does a compatible PCI Mini Wireless n card for T43 exist.  I do not want this to be a 7 or 8 hundred dollar upgrade.  I may as well just throw out the T43 in the scrap pile, and buy one that has wireless n built in.  Being on SSI fixed income is not inducive to trial and error buying. Thanks,Jim.

Answer:Thinkpad T43p and Wireless

Welcome to the forum!There are NO wireless "n" cards that are compatible with T43 out of the box. You need a mini PCI format (not a mini-PCI-e used on later ThinkPads) and even if you find one of those cards (they do exist, and can be bought on eBay) you'll have to use a modded BIOS.Hope this helps.

Ok, this is confusing to me, I have a wireless network with two computers connected to it, I bought a laptop IBM Thinkpad 1300i series with a built in wireless adapter, the IBM wireless LAN client says I am connected to the network, it reads the mac address from the wireless router and shows the same amount of channels as the other computers, but under network and dial up connections it shows the adapter as unplugged. I ran winsockfix but it did not help, then I installed Wireless Network Ignition 2 and it showed that it could not find a wireless connection? Any advice would be gratefull.
 

Answer:IBM Thinkpad wireless network

If you are connected to the network can you ping another PC? Or ping something on the internet (www.google.com)?
Im also a lil confused! If you are connected to your network and are obtaining an IP address then there isn't really much else to worry about!

I am trying to get my brother's laptop computer to work wirelessly with my Linksys Router to make sure it works. I disabled Windows Firewall, enabled the wireless connection and disabled the wired LAN connection. Under Wireless Network Connection, it finds my router but won't connect. It reads "Windows is unable to connect to the selected network. The network may no longer be in range. please refresh the list of available networks and try to connect again." I then refresh and try to connect and the cycle continues. It shows my router has having a very good signal strength.

I had originally been unable to even view my router initially. So, I tried to setup a network connection on the laptop with my system. I now can see the router but can't connect to it.

The wireless card is listed as a "High Rate Wireless LAN MiniPCI Combo Card." I can't find a driver for it to update.

I don't know what to do next.

Thank you.

After the failure of my HDD in my usual laptop left me temporarilly without any internet connection, I purchased a 2nd hand IBM ThinkPad T40 to keep as a back-up. It arrived today, booted up into Win7 but will not connect to my Wifi router (a Wannado unit).
It can 'see' the wireless connection but, after putting in the (right) key, it reports that it cannot connect. Letting it go through its diagnoses routine it says it can't fix the problem and I should reset my network adaptor. But it doesn't say how!
Looking in Device Mnr there are 2 adaptors - an Intel Pro/1000 MT Mobile Conn, and an Intel Pro Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adaptor. Both report that they are up to date and working ok. The wireless connection is in use by another computer so it works fine. I put the Router in 'find' mode to no affect. There doesn't seem to be a key combination to physically switch the Wifi off on the laptop, but the little indicator light stays on most of the time, with short periods of going off (about 2 secs). Why isn't life simple?

When the computer first boots it ether doesn?t find any wireless signals or can?t connect going into an endless cycle of acquiring a network address of witch it never finds. If you boot up with an Ethernet cable connected it all seems ok and will connect to wireless just fine. If you unplug the data cable it will continue to have connectivity for some time until it drops for no apparent reason, or you reboot without the data cable attached.

I have quite an odd problem concerning an IBM Thinkpad and a wireless connection. I have the IBM connected through a Dell Truemobile wireless router. Most of the time, the connection is fine.

However, sometimes, maybe once a day, the laptop will lose the wireless connection entirely. I go into the Network Connections and click connect to re-connect to the wireless network. Sometimes, however, nothing will be listed. No matter how many times I refresh, it will pick up no networks at all. As such, I am forced to restart the computer. Then, all will be fine. That is, until it happens again.

Does anyone have any ideas? This is quite the nuisance!

Thanks.
 

Answer:IBM Thinkpad & Wireless Problem

Does the laptop have the wireless built in, or are you using something like a PCMCIA card? In either event, try updating or re-installing the drivers.
In the case of the PCMCIA card, try another port (if you have one).

Good day all.

I just got a refurbished ThinkPad T30 and cannot get it hookup to an (Apple) Airport wireless LAN using a LinkSys WRT110 router. The T30 contains both a Cisco PCI wireless LAN adapter and an Intel Pro/100 VE Network Connection (both shown working in Device Manager). (Borrowed PC with XP Pro connects immediately to my LAN, so it is not an Apple/PC problem).
When I try to View Available Wireless Networks, I get a message saying Windows can't configure and suggesting using another program. When I open Wireless Connection Status
for the adapter [where I changed settings to those of my LAN] I get a message that "IBM Access Connections is managing the configuration of your wireless network." I have tried to create a location in Access Connections that mirrors the configuration in the LAN adapter, but it does not connect.
Thanks in advance for saving the life of this blameless computer.

I had to reset the X40 and now I'm having to reinstall a ton of drivers. Everything seems OK except that it does not see the wireless card at all. Also in the dvmgr, the Ethernet controller (under "Other Devices" shows it is not working properly, but it cannot find a proper driver for it. I don't know if these two problems are related but I can't for the life of me fix it. I'm running XPSP3.

Answer:Thinkpad X40 Wireless Card not Seen

I had an issue with my x40 not recognizing any of the Windows XP wireless card drivers available through the Lenovo site. The only Ethernet driver available worked, but none of the three wireless drivers did. Worse, I couldn't even tell what card I had. The device manager only listed a "network controller," or something to that effect. Anyway, long story short, I went to the Intel site and downloaded a legacy wireless driver (the same one works for a bunch of different cards). I didn't install HotKeys, Access Manager, or Power Management or whatever they're called. My card now works fine and I just manage the connections with Windows. My card turns out to be the Intel 2200BG. Hope that helps.

Hello everyone, I have an IBM Thinkpad T43p 2668 laptop, and I have just reinstalled Windows XP and I cannot connect to the internet. When I attempt to go into control panel and set up a connection, I don't get a LAN option or anything else, and when I try to create a network it does not find any device. This same thing happens with a direct wired connection. I open the device manager and there are 10 devices without drivers installed. These drivers names are all listed as "unknown manufacturer" and "other" device types. My Ethernet controller is in there so is the network controller, video controller, USB controller, PCI modem, multimedia audio controller and the biometric scanner and sm bus controller. There are also 2 unknown devices and I don't know what they are. I went to the IBM lenovo website to find the drivers but I don't know which ones I need. I tried installing all of the available wireless network drivers but still nothing. I am completely stuck as to what I should do from here. Any tips or solutions would be helpful.

I forgot to mention that when I run ipconfig it does not show any devices at all but I get the output: C:\documents\settings\usr.

You need to install your drivers from their website:

Lenovo Support - Drivers & Software (US)

Type in "T43p" on the search page then select your 2668 model, and select Windows XP for the OS and download all the listed drivers, then install one at a time.

If you're still having issues or still have unknown devices, then come back and we can get them manually.

Edit:
Since you said you already downloaded all available drivers, and are still having issues, then do the following:

Open up Device Manager

On everything that has a yellow exclamation mark, do the following:
Right click -> Properties -> Details tab

Post the following info for each item that has a yellow exclamation mark:
The "Device Description" under the Property drop down
Under "Hardware Ids", it should have something like VEN_####&DEV#### ; post that section, where #### = some alphanumeric combination.

This way we can look up each component individually and get you the correct drivers.

Hey Folks,so what I have found my wireless lan cannot operate on 5ghz and I have just obtained a dual band wireless router since my neihbourhood is now cramped with dozens of other APs I plan to upgrade my laptop's wireless lan. I initially considered getting a USB adapter but I do not want to attach an external device to my laptop that I will likely break accidentally as I move alot carrying my laptop. I am seeing this adapter on Amazon - does anyone know if this will be a good fit for my Thinkpad L412? http://www.amazon.com/Intel-Wifi-Wireless-Worldwide-533an_hmw/dp/B004ZIA7WE I do not know the dimensions of the original adapter, so I am pretty sketchy on that. Also, will it be a big deal to run a third antenna to my LCD? Anyone has any experience.

Answer:Thinkpad T60 Wireless not working

I don't personally own a T60, but it most likely has ability to enable/disable the wireless in the bios. Look through your settings, probably under "network" and make sure it's enabled.  ps. Hopefully a t60 owner will be by to offer more specific advice soon.

I have a IBM Thinkpad T43 that has built in wireless that works VERY well with every single wireless location I have connected to in the past (and there have been MANY). Unfortunately it NEVER works with my home wireless network which operates on a Netgear Wireless Router. The weird thing is that it connects to it beautifully, with a strong signal and it registers as connecting at 54mbps, but that's it. It won't actually allow me to use the internet. I can open Explorer, MSN Chat/Im, Firefox, my Outlook etc...and they all just sit there and stare at me waiting to connect to the internet. I have a home computer (HP) and another laptop (Lenovo Thinkpad T400) that connect to the router beautifully and work like a dream with it. But this T43 just connects and but it never actually lets me use the internet. I've even disabled all the security settings on the wireless router and had it wide open to anyone and the same thing happens. I have tried connecting via the FN + F5 built in program on the laptop AND on the Windows based "find a wireless network" system...it'll connect to my wireless home network no problem, but when you actually want to start using the internet....nothing happens. Again, the laptops wireless works EXCELLENT everywhere else...and my home wireless system works great with everyone elses laptops and computers...but the two won't work together. Almost like they are speaking different languages...they see eachother fine...but won't talk. H...

Answer:T43 Thinkpad Wireless Issues

I have had <EXACTLY> the same problem with a T43 and a Netgear WGR614 wireless router.  Everything works with my other laptop, so its clearly in the laptop. After FOUR calls with Netgear Tech Support they finally diagnosed it to needing to update the network adapter driver which I am in the process of doing from Lenovo and then I'm supposed to call Netgear back. Please let me know by email xxxxxxxxxxx if you ever solved your problem and what you did.  Its worth a shot to try what they've told me to do.                   Bob Moderator note: email address deleted, for spambot protection.

I am currently using ThinkPad w510 with windows 7 installed. My wireless network adapter driver is "Intel(R) Centrino(R) Ultimate-N 6300 AGN" and it has been giving me problems whenever i connect to an ad-hoc network. The wireless radio will automatically turn off after awhile and when i turn it back on and re-connect to the ad-hoc network, it turns off again after awhile. This keeps repeating and it really pisses me off. I am able to connect to routers and surf the net but not ad-hoc networks. Is there a way to solve this?

Help!  I've bought a ThinkPad S440 which has stopped connecting to the internet at only 4 months old, and I've now spent many more hours trying to repair it than I have using it.  I'm not a computer expert so don't understand most of the on-line fixes.  I can't find any on-line help from Lenovo, and the call centre is only open when I am at work.  Do I stay at home (and lose wages) in the hope that it can be repaired, or just buy another laptop?  I took half a day off last week, 30mins on the phone got me a temporary fix which stopped working when I turned the machine back on the following morning.  I'm not impressed with Lenovo's customer service, I have to say.  Anyone want to buy a little-used S440?

Answer:Wireless Card for ThinkPad 420S

Good day and welcome to the community.
 
Please have a look at your hardware manual: https://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/t420s_t420si_hmm_en_0a60241_07.pdf
Starting on manual page 117, you'll see the parts listing. Item #5 is the WLAN card, and manual pages 119-120 show which cards were configured in the machine and should pass the whitelist test. There are no AC cards listed.
 
Hope this helps to clarify.

Hello there, My sister has a IBM Thinkpad X40 when I reinstalled all the drivers the Wireless driver is the only one that doesn't seem to work. Yes it was working before the new Windows XP Pro install. I have downloaded all 4 drivers available from the drivers page and tried each one at a time. Still the wireless driver doesn't seem to want to work! So does anyone have any suggestions ? Thanks Scott

Answer:IBM ThinkPad X40 Wireless Driver issue!?!?!?

Did you install the right driver?
First identify the wireless LAN device and then download the right package from Lenovo.
Execute it and then install it from C:\DRIVERS\WIN\WLANxxx
 
How identify the device?
Double-click the network device in the device manager and select the "Details" - tab.
Find the four chars after "&VEN_" and "&DEV_" and input the chars found after "&DEV_"  into the upper right input field on www.pcidatabase.com
 
As the result you will get several devices from several vendors - search the line with the right Vendor-ID (kept in mind in "Details"-tab after "&VEN_")

Here's the situation, I got this system as a used office comp, the HD was whipped and cleaned, I have none of the documentation or setup disks that originally came with this comp, I didn't even get a case.  Pretty much the company was done with it, cleaned it and gave it to me.  Not an option to get the setup disks as well. I have since reformatted, partitioned, installed XP and installed many needed drivers...audio, VGA and so on.  The one issue I am having is getting the wireless adapter setup.  Part of the problem I think is I'm not exactly sure what adapter is in this beast...looking at the driver/downloads section for it (if I've got the right driver page even) it seems there could be 4 or 5 different adapters installed in this unit.  Not to mention I'm not the best at wireless stuff, not a noob, but probably just above noob.  To note also, I have been able to get a hardwired LAN connection setup, so I am able to get on the internet but honestly the system is useless to me if I cannot use it wirelessly. Any help would rock,

Answer:Thinkpad 2374-4wu wireless help needed.

The model number of your computer revelas that it has the Intel Pro 2100 802.11b wireless card (very unusual as most T42s came with the b/g card).  In any event, download that driver and see if it works.  You may just want to upgrade the wireless card to a b/g or an a/b/g card for better wireless performance.

Hello and welcome,
 
That depends on the wifi card installed.  According to the  Hardware Maintenance Manual   there were some 2.4GHz single-band cards shipped with the T420.
 
Can you determine via Device Manager what card you have? Or use the SUPPORT (above) "Search by Machine Type Model" link to pull up your machine's specs.  Your MT-M (like 1234-ABC) should be on a sticker on the bottom of themachine.

I have tried the following -1. got all updates for windows vista business from Microsoft2. Got the latest driver for Wireless card. It is an Intel ABGN3. Changed all options to "maximum performance" in Power manager4.  Changed all optioins in Access Connections for "maximum performance".5. Asked "device manager" not to turn off wireless device to conserve power.6. Removed wireless conneciton form Access Connections and let windows manage the network card and vice versa. Despite my above mentioned efforts I cannot get the wireless speed to increase. There are other family members who are using the wireless connection with the same router/switch with no issues (Linksys ABG with WEP 128 bit encryption enabled). I have taken encryption off and still getting the same wireless speed (slow). I have taken a wireshark capture from the wireless interface for the process of reaching out to www.yahoo.com and this is true of all websites. There is a wait time and then a reset (RST) is seen the first time and then when a second http request is sent to the website I get a FIN,ACK which is when the website loads. It almost seems like that the issue is with the ACK coming from the far end but obviously not all websites are having issues at the same time. I have taken the laptop to my friends house and I have the same problem. He uses something other than Linksys. Can someone please guide me in the right direction to resolve this issue? Thanks
