Bought a Thinkpad X61 from ebay (still under warranty, just). First impressions are good, it's a great machine and this is a nice example of it.
I fitted a new hard drive, installed XP Professional, and have updated all drivers from the Support website.
It's a 7673-H7G model.
The problem I'm having is that Device manager doesn't display any Wireless Network adaptor.
I'd appreciate any suggestions, I've run out of ideas.
This model DOES have an inbuilt Wireless adaptor, doesn't it?
Thanks for any help

Thanks for the suggestion.
I managed to get into the case to take a look (a bit tricky), and it looks like one is installed in there, and it's a model which is compatible with my 7673-H7G.
So it's either:
a) faulty switch on front of case
b) faully card / connections to main board
c) some obvious error I'm making
.. but they're all beyond me to fix. Looks like I'm stuck with buying a PCMCIA Wireless card.
Any further suggestions appreciated.
