Thinkpad t-40 wireless?

2008-10-30, 20:54 PM
I just recently bought a ThinkPad T40 2373-8CU. It says that it is wireless upgradeable, but I don't understand exactly what they mean by that. Does it mean that I don't need to use a wireless card, or just simply that I can upgrade to wireless with a card.

it means that the wireless card is not installed in your machine, but all the internal antennas are there for the upgrade, if you wish to upgrade to internal wireless access.

You can obtain an Lenovo/IBM (you have to use it, otherwise it would give you error messages) one from thinkpads.com for fairly cheap, just go to the marketplace there and look it up.

 

Here is a manual that shows you everything you need to know on how to install the card.
