T400 Wireless Wan/Mobile Broadband device not found

2008-10-20, 5:45 AM

Hi All,

When going into Mobile Broadband Connect in The All Programs > ThinkVantage menu, it comes up with a "No Wireless Broadband device found" error message. Also, when I go into Access Connections, Wireless WAN is greyed out under the Tools menu. I have a vodafone wireless broadband SIM card which I have inserted the correct way up into the slot beneath the battery, and I have restarted a number of times. No luck. Am I missing some drivers? Is the hardware faulty?

sc_qsmart, welcome to the forum,

 

have you turned the WWAN on using the Fn+F5 key combination?

It would be helpful if you could post which T400 and Operating System you have, even better post the Type and Model Number this will help members to help you. If it ends in CTO please provide some details about it. Please do NOT post your s/n.

Hi andyP, thanks for the response.

I have a T400, model number 2765P5M running XP Pro. I can't see CTO printed anywhere.

I have tried FN+F5 and the Wireless radio is already set to ON.

What could I try next? I can't seem to find any likely device in Device Manager...

Cheers

I couldn't find your system on the support site, maybe it's too new. Are you sure that you ordered with WWAN and not an upgradeable T400? All systems will have the SIM slot.

 

Go to this site and enter your type and serial numbers, then click on continue. This will present you with a list of components used to build your system, hopefully a WWAN module will be listed.

 

Please do NOT post your s/n in the forum.

Hi  AndyP,

I typed in my product number and also let the site try to auto detect my setup, but it was not found in both instances.

I guess I musn't have the hardware, only the slot. It would explain a lot! Thanks for your help
