    Hello everybody.

    After having installed the mini-pci 350 Cisco WIFI-Wireless card,
    everything seems to run ok on my IBM Thinkpad T40 (apart from the
    battery management that I have to re-install) :
    I have the wireless connection, I can activate it (card ON/OFF) by the
    T40 Fct-F5 button
    -> but the Wireless LED indicator is allways off !

    I may need to install another IBM driver or application but, since my
    Win XP Pro SP2 is a new one (without IBM Access installed), I don't
    want to install any "not usefull" application :) so is it related to
    CISCO's driver (I use the one from IBM website but I've seen a more
    upto date in CISCO's site but I don't know if this is ok for the T40 ?)
    ?

    Thanks for any tip :)

    Thanks Brad,

    But, as it is said : "Note : Mini PCI cards do not have LEDs" :-(

    "My LED" is the one on the Thinkpab laptop and it is always Off, even
    if the Cisco card may be turned On or Off by software :)

    Thanks again for any tip :)
