I am having problems with a t41 laptop's wireless. it is a type 2373-7FU with a Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI adapter. the wireless signal will drop out intermittently, usually while trying to load a webpage. Sometimes it won't load a whole page without dropping and sometimes it lasts for 15 minutes.
I have tried many solutions on lenovo's support for wireless (http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/migr-50402.html). all to no avail. does anyone have any suggestions? I am thinking the card probably needs replaced.
also, this is a B card and i would like to update it to a G card. the problem I have is that when you look up your computer type on lenovo's hardware page (http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-46474#8) it only tells you what can replace that exact type laptop, so it states exactly what came with the computer, so the same B card. i want to know what wireless g cards are compatible with this laptop, but dont know since the above url doesn't state "these cards work for t41 machines, etc." Does anyone know what G cards (probably listed on the above URL) will work with a t41, or how I can contact lenovo to ask such a specific question?
