How to Configure Wi-Fi on the IBM ThinkPad in Windows XP
Get the answer Jul 13, I had exactly the same problem on a T41 recently and was about to change the chip with another from a breaker when I found it was easier to ditch the Intel software and leave Windows tin charge Lenovo ThinkPad R40e IBM WLAN the connection. I only found this out after using a wireless dongle and disabling the onboard chip only to find the problem still existed and I couldn't get a valid IP.
It had to be software and that Intel wireless utility was the only possible suspect. Good luck with yours.
Jul 13, I let Windows manage the connections because my experience with 3rd party softwares has been that they don't connect to Lenovo ThinkPad R40e IBM WLAN network until after the user is completely logged on and the software loads as part of the startup for the user. In that case the user gets an error about not finding the domain and files we have syncing to our server don't sync.
Windows loads the wireless connection sooner Lenovo ThinkPad R40e IBM WLAN the boot order so when the user logs onto the domain they get their roaming profile and their files sync properly. Saga Lout Jul 13,2: In my customer's T41 - which I hadn't set up or worked on before - both were running and apparently happily side-by-side but the Intel utility didn't show in the systray, only the Windows icon. I found the reference to Intel in msconfig when cutting Lenovo ThinkPad R40e IBM WLAN on StartUp entries and that made the wireless run properly but only after flushing the DNS and renewing all the adapters.
Matter of interest the wireless chip in that machine was a Cisco Aironet MP The answer turned out to be even simpler than what I thought.

Turns out that if SP3 is installed while anti-virus software is running entries my be made incorrectly to the registry which cause the available wireless networks list to disappear. There is a MS hotfix for it at http: It requires you to boot into safe mode, double click the fix Lenovo ThinkPad R40e IBM WLAN needs to be extracted from the download firstand then you can reboot into normal mode and botta-bing, the network list is back.
No need to reinstall Windows or anything. Reinstalling Windows worked on the first one I tried it on because I disabled the AV when it was downloading SP3 so it installed properly.

But when I went to do the next one I forgot to do that and was very frustrated when I applied SP3 to it and the list disappeared again. However, that was the key I needed to find the solution so it all worked out in the end.
The fix opens a command window and closes it so fast you wonder if it really did anything but it does work. I feel dumb that it took me a year to figure this out, but I didn't really know the problem started after installing SP3 because by the time Windows Update did that the computers were with Lenovo ThinkPad R40e IBM WLAN users and I had no idea that updates had been run prior to the problem appearing.
However, after reinstalling Windows and it working fine in the SP2 install and then not once Lenovo ThinkPad R40e IBM WLAN was applied things started falling into place as to the problem. Hope this saves someone else a year of pulling their hair out. Saga Lout Jul 15,2: I'd refurbished that system for my friend and installed SP3 from a flash drive before installing MSE so her problem remained a problem but at least it's one that's fixed now. While I can now see wireless networks in the list, I cannot connect.
I get an endless "Acquiring IP Address" loop.
The most common advice people give is to get a update driver for the wireless card, however, it appears that the most recent driver for that is dated in and I have installed that and it does nothing to fix the problem.
