    pLEASE be sure your wireless device is working, probably driver got missing.
    check network places then click view connections on the left, if you can see your wireless device there then its okay. note if youve got ethernet it's also going to be there
    if no try find a way to install the driver
    Peace

    Hi Speedracer, i think you need to install good drivers, i dont think that the drivers you have are that of that brand and model, if they are then i suggest that you check whether the devices is one, for drivers check them from "Sorry am not allowed to post any urls" but u can search in google for "ibm t43 wireless driver" and click on the third link.
    or
    press "fn + F5" to switch on the device

    Hope that helps.

    Cheers R
