Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R50e Notebook ?

Computer says IBM wireless adapters (802.11 or bluetooth) not ins

\015 I just bought an IBM ThinkPad computer second hand and am trying to connect it to my existing home network system of wireless broadband and it will not because it says that the wireless adapters are not installed on the system. I have already two computers on this network at home. I did not recieve any disc or installatioin advise with the computer. And I can not find any wireless switch on the computer, but it appears to be on by the little wireless light under the screen. HOw do I connect it to my wireless network? FN and F5 should normally turn it on but it always says that it is not installed on the system.\015

Hello Kangarootrib,
Since you bought the ThinkPad second hand and the software installation disc did not come with it, you should go to the IBM ThinkPad manufacturer's web site. Once there, look for your specific model and search for the proper drivers and download and install them on your current computer. Drivers are basically small bits of code that tell the operating system how to communicate with hardware devices, which when you purchase products new come with a CD that contains these instructions for your computer to be able to communicate with the device. Hope this helps and please let us know if you need further assistance.

P.S. If you would not mind, could you please rate my help as I would really appreciate it. Thank you
