    I've got two IBM Thinkpad R50 notebooks. Both are equipped with wireless and both are running Win2K pro.

    Now, the problem I'm having is that the wireless won't connect to anything. The machine seems to think the wireless is actually a wired connection. I've got the little icon claiming a network cable is unplugged.

    I first thought driver issue, but removing and reinstalling did nothing. Same symptom. Next, I tried 2 different drivers from IBM. Neither of the two worked, only the original would even allow the device to start.

    I'm pretty stumpped at this point.
    Any idears?

    Definately sounds like a driver issue. For shits & grins though, what happens when you run the Wireless connection tool? Does it say there's no device or what?
