Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad X31 2672 Notebook ?

Wi-fi hi, I do not know, how to turn on my wi-fi at IBM Thinkpad..like bluetooth with Fn and F5...I tried almost everything, but the wi-fi icon (near that for bluetooth) is still dark:/ thanks for every help!


Answers :

Please make sure the drivers for your wireless network adapter is installed.
1) go to Device manager - rightl click on my computer and click on properties, select HARDWARE tab then click on Device manager
2) See if the wireless adapter is displayed under Network adapters. If there is an yellow exclamation mark on the Network adapter, it means the drivers for your adapter are not installed.
3) If you find the drivers ok, then make sure that the wireless radio button is turned on. Usually the wireless radio can enabled or disabled from a tray Icon on right side of the system. Most of the system also come with a on/off switch for the wireless radio which is basically on the front side of the laptop.

If the above does not help please revert with the model number of your system and I will try some other steps for you
Go into control panel, go into system, go to hardware, click device manager, look down the list for network adapters and click on the little plus next to it, see if you have a wireless network card there and if it is installed. if it is there- right click on it and click on uninstall and then agree to uninstalling it, now restart your computer, after restarting you should get a message that new hardware is found and ready to use. now go into control panel again and this time go to network connections, in there you will see your network connections, 1 of them will be your local area connections and the other your WI-FI or wireless - if you see both there then your ready go to. If not then your wireless might need the correct driver to run it, if it is there then you should see the wireless icon down the bottom right corner next to the time, right click on it and pick an option like search for wireless networks. if it didn't install correctly after the reboot then download these drivers http://download.hankscomputerservice.com/Wireless/IBM/Wireless/IBM%20%20wireless%20from%20R50%20till%20Z61t.exe
\015\012 you can also find all the drivers you need from here http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-43800.html ok after doing all that and if you still don't have wireless connection then look for ether a switch or a function option to turn wireless off & on, if you can't find anything then at this point you will need to take your laptop to your closest computer shop and ask for assistance
