Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R52 Notebook ?

Is there a wi-fi swtich on thinkpad r52?

\015 I checked control panel, device manager, everthing else i could check but still wi-fi does not work. It wont locate any wireless networks.. please help what else can i try?\015

Answers :

IBM load there own set of software on there notebooks which take care of networking lan and wi-fi, I have found if try to use the windows native wireless checker it does not pick the networks up. Try using the IBM program either in the taskbar near the clock or in the start menu.
\015\012Also in Device Manager does the wi-fi device show up.
\015\012There also may be a light that indicates wi-fi is on on at the front or or above the keyboard if its off let me know.
\015\012Other possibility is to uninstall the driver for the wireless device restart and let it reinstall automatically.
