Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook ?

Where is the switch to turn on the wireless for the ibm thinkpad t40


Answers :

The T40 does not have a switch to turn the wireless card, the correct wireless driver only needs to be installed.
\015\012The same model ThinkPads can have several different video and audio drivers and unless you know exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download all the drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver.
\015\012When you download the drivers, write down the device driver and it’s file name so you have a record of which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files are located on your hard drive.
\015\012Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device drivers for your model computer, Use this link: -
\015\012http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true
\015\012You can download the various drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, they will then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\\drivers Then install the various drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).
