Having problems with your Lenovo ThinkPad R51 ?

IBM R51e Thinkpad Wireless problem

\015 I have inherited the above laptop from an auction. I wiped it clean and reinstalled Windows XP but can not get the wireless card to work. The only way I can connect to the internet is with a USB Wireless adapter. \015\012\015\012In have installed the proper drivers (I think) yet in my Device Manager->Ethernet Controller has a yellow question mark. I have searched and searched for a fix and have found that I am not the only one that has had this problem, but I have found no real fixes for it.\015\012\015\012I can't toggle the wireless on the laptop either. \015\012\015\012I am at my wits end with this and need help!\015\012\015\012Thank you in advance!\015\012Lisa\015
