HI,

 

I'm working on a friend's Thinkpad , which was infected with Malware.

 

I got some great help/direction in fixing the problems, in the malware forum here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/512322/malware-keeps-coming-back/

 

After I installed AVG and updated the Java version as directed, the wireless connection stopped working.

 

I don't think it happened immediately after installing Java, because I believe I surfed for a while first.

 

When I boot the computer up, it first shows the wireless icon in the tray with the red X.  If I hover, it says 

 

After a minute or two, it pops up a bubble that says, "Wireless Networks Detected - one or more wireless networks are in range of this computer. To see the list and connect, click this message."

 

When I click on it, I get the "Wireless Network Connection" window, and the white field on the right just says no wireless networks were found in range.

 

Earlier today, it saw every network in my neighborhood and connected to my secure Netgear DSL router just fine.

 

I tried turning off the surfing protection part of AVG free and briefly turned off Windows firewall just in case they were interfering.

 

Here are details of the laptop:

 

Thinkpad T42 - Pentium M 1.80 GHz

2 GB Ram

 

Running WinXP  Service Pack 3

 

The wireless adapter is shown in device manager as "Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection"

 

There's also an ethernet adapter listed as "Intel PRO/1000 MT Mobile Connection"

 

The wired connection wouldn't work for me before or after I worked on it, and my buddy said he's never used a wired connection with it.

 

Does anyone have suggested steps I should try, or further info I should supply?

 

 

 

Thanks,

 

Hoosemon

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.

 

This was posted today.

I suggest you follow nasdaqs advice.

Huh?

 

So, you're saying I should ask to reopen the post with nasdaq, instead of posting this as a hardware problem?

Nasdaq may well suggest you post in this forum.....but seeing he still has the details fresh in his mind......I think he would be worth a try.

 

or...

 

Please click Start > Run, type inetcpl.cpl in the runbox and press enter.
Click the Connections tab and click the LAN settings option.
Verify if "Use a proxy..." is checked, if so, UNcheck it and click OK/OK to exit.
Now check if the internet is working again.

Ok, I did that - the reset was successful and I was directed to restart the computer.

 

I rebooted and the wireless tray icon comes up with the yellow caution triangle, and says, "wireless network connection (my SSID), Speed: 54.0 Mbps, Signal Strength: excellent. Status: limited or no connectivity"

 

If I click on the tray icon, it brings up a small window showing the same status info and if I click on the "view wireless networks" button, the next windows says there are no wireless networks detected.  Seems like a contradiction, since it just told me it saw mine.

 

What next?

One note - I installed Chrome on this laptop, with the intent of recommending my friend to stop using IE.  I didn't install FF.  I noticed that MiniToolBox had settings for IE and FF.

 

Ok, here are the results:

Should I temporarily disable AVG and firewall while doing this?

Ok, it seemed to run without any problems, the computer rebooted and seems exactly the same.

 

Wireless still says it's connected to my router, with limited or no connectivity, but the list of available networks shows no available wireless connections (including mine).

 

What's next?

Hi, Simple solutions from simple minds :)

 

Have You check to be sure the Wireless is turned on. I have experienced the same problem when I was using a T42 and was embarrassed to find that I had turned off the wireless.

 

The Other problem I had was that some of the IBM (Lenovo) software was managing the wireless and that once I got rid of it I was good to go. Try using the IBM software to set up the wireless. It is much fancier than the built-in Windows wireless software. That is because the T42 was targeted at businesses that might need to have many networks setup.

 

OK, From Here

 

NOTES 1. If you use ThinkVantage Access Connections, the following software must be installed. - ThinkVantage Access Connections version 4.11 or higher

This is the one to try if the Wireless is turned on and is not connecting.

As I remember the Wireless if a Fn key plus one of the function keys. look at the markings I do not recall which one.

I liked the T42, I had to give it back to work however.

 

Good Luck

Roger

Hi Roger,

 

I assumed it was on because it said it was seeing my router, but now I'm not so sure.

 

I tried the CTRL-F5 key combo and it came back with a message saying it was "Unable to change the power state of the 802.11 wireless radio. Update the driver for the wireless adapter."

 

So, I checked the driver version.  The laptop is using version 9.0.4.39 (Dec 2007).  The Lenovo site lists 9.0.4.8 (Mar 2006) as the most recent.  The Intel site says 9.0.4.39 (Dec 2009) is the most recent.  I'm a little confused my the different dates for the same version driver, but it appears I have the most recent.

 

I downloaded the new Intel driver and the system wouldn't update to that file because it said it wasn't any better than what it was currently using.

 

I installed the Thinkpad wireless LAN software you gave me a link to, and it installed and restarted, but no apparent application running or installed (in the start menu).  This laptop has some ThinkVantage software installed, but not the Access Connections package, which is what allows you to manage the net adapters I believe.

 

I did un-check the box in the wireless config window to have Windows manage the wireless, and rebooted, thinking maybe the IBM software would take over, but it didn't.

 

Suggestions?

 

I thought about uninstalling the existing wireless driver and re-installing the correct one.

 

Whaddya think?
