I just got an older IBM Thinkpad T40 (2374) that came with Windows XP installed (I think Svc pack 2)
There is wireless capability installed in the machine, and when I look in properties it's a Cisco PCI wireless LAN adapter. The person that gave me the machine has no issues accessing and getting on wireless networks, all in range are recognized, and wireless indicator on machine is working fine, etc.
I connect to an unsecured wireless network (NETGEAR) with other laptops with absolutely no problems whatsoever.
This is not the case, however, with the Thinkpad. As with the others, it recognizes all networks in range, seems to be working as normal......until I go to connect to the network. At this point, it just constantly says "connecting to the network" for a minute and then never connects.
I've messed around with the network connection properties, etc. and tried to mirror my other laptops, but still no luck. Can anyone help? Any suggestions on what the problem is? I initially thought the wireless card installed had issues, but I've seen it work fine on others.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
