    Re: T23 ThinkPad and hardware updates

    The antenna + and - (aux) leads are different lengths, perhaps one cable was pinched. Still not happy with the setup, signal strength in properties varies with the notepad in a stationary position.

    Re: T23 ThinkPad and hardware updates

    UPDATE!
    Swapped the antenna connetions on the wireless mini-pci card and improved download speeds quite a bit. Still not 100% 54 Mbps like with my AirPlus-G card but a whole lot better.

    Can you try flipping the router antenna to horizontal? Made a big difference on my setup.

    T23 ThinkPad and hardware updates

    I have three questions about the upgradability of my T-23 26472GU ThinkPad.

    Re: IBM T22 suddenly cannot charge batteries

    Make sure you didnt update to the hardware controller to V 1.06. It has issues with power measurement. IBM still has the 1.05 version available for download.

    Re: IBM T22 suddenly cannot charge batteries

    Since the battery wont charge even with the T22 turned off, it's not a bios issue. I would suspect a bad solder joint at the I/O card to say the least.
