Dear Bro/Sis

Need help....Please

I have a Laptop IBM Thinkpad "R50".
Due to some corruption, I formatted the harddisk with Window XP, after formatting I have install most of the drivers software and the system is working fine. I can do Words, Excel and photos PP and also can link to Internet with cable connect to router.

The main thing now is that my "Wireless Lan" is not working. I cannot link to Internet wirelessly. I supect a software is missing:dunno:.

Is there anyone using IBM R50? you will see the LCD panel below there is a sign showing Wireless Internet connect. Mine do work.

Thank you very much upfront.
Thanks again

If the laptop internal wireless lan dun work, get external wireless lan like PCMCIA or USB wireless adapter.
