    T41 internal wifi card driver

    Is there a wifi driver out there for the IBM T41.
    Just Got the laptop recently and wondering if a driver exist and if it is compiled for the internal card. Currently im using a wifi usb that is using a prism54 driver I believe. The connection is in and out and it does not stay consistent. Please advise and suggests some tutorials if you have any. Thanks in advance.

    The T41 came with three different wireless cards. Which one does yours have? Open a terminal and do:
    Code:
    sudo lshw -C network
    We will then know if you have the Intel 2100, the Atheros or the Cisco Aironet.

    It looks, at this point, like you have no wireless card built in. Is it perhaps not enabled in the BIOS?

    I'm not quite sure how to activate a wireless card that is not even seen in any way by the computer. You might do:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -i wireless
    sudo cat /var/log/messages | grep -i wireless
    Let's see if there are any interesting messages. Please be sure your USB wireless device is detached first, although, if it was attached on boot, some messages may be given related to it.
