Inbuilt Wi-fi ? or PCMCIA wifi adapter ?

If it's inbuilt wi-fi , dont waste time and get a wifi adapter

If your solution to fixing an IT problem is to buy a replacement, then you'll fit right into business school. ;)

ipconfig output

Windows IP Configuration

An internal error occurred: A device attached to the system is not functioning.

Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services for further help.

Additional information: Unknown media status code.

Someone tell me how the !@#!@ to fix this... I connect for 2-3 minutes, disconnect and have to reconnect. Only happens on this PC. No clue. IBM T42 if anyone cares, never had problems.


I got the same message using my IBM T42. My network card is still working flawlessly however.

I noticed that when you turn on the "Routing and Remote Access" service on, ipconfig works again. But the issue is still a mystery to me.

Did you update the drivers and other software through "thinkvantage", lenovo's update utility? I did that recently and I think I started seeing this problem after the updates.

Unless you have a winsock or virus issue like this page (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Network ... 60542.html) suggests, it may be a driver issue.

Let me know if you run into anything more enlightening.
