Problem shows as :
- Right bottom taskbar, LAN network shows with exclamation mark saying connected 100MB : limited or no connectivity
Work Around :
When Wireless is disabled, the exclamaition mark disappears and is conneced normally. Turn wireless on: problem appears again and thinkvantage switches back to wireless
Probable issue :
- New Thinkvantage Access Connection 4.42 does not correctly handle network speeds ( or at least makes the wrong decision in this ? ) Or the wireles and wired LAN have somekind of conflict when enabled at the same time.
When Thinkvantage access Connections is removed, problem is gone.....so problem =Access Connection.
Is there a FIX or an update available for this ? If not, can this be fixed by a registry modification/file modification as I have more and more of these models and users are freaked out by the switching to wireless instead of Wired.

I remembered receiving the "limited connectivity" warning when I first got my T43 in May 05. It had me puzzled for ages. I could also remember that WLAN worked fine, but I couldn’t always switch to a connection over cable.
After I found out I could turn the warning off I don’t remember ever having a problem. I quickly played around with priorities and turning the warning on and off, I found that I could reproduce most of the problem.
What I could not reproduce was “Turn wireless on: problem appears again and think vantage switches back to wireless”.
