IBM T42 - Access Connections - WLAN cannot be connected after standby mode

Discussion in 'IBM Thinkpad' started by Karl Scheibelhofer, Oct 27, 2004.

  1. i have a T42 (2373CUG) running Windows XP Professional. after
    installing all the latest service packs (SP2) and patches, IBM Access
    Connections (version 3.30) cannot connect to a WLAN any more if the
    user is not in the Administrators group. Access Conncetions tells me
    that it cannot connect to the WLAN because the driver of the WLAN
    module (Intel PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI) is too old. it tells
    that it requires or newer, but i have installed driver
    version (the latest from IBM web site). so, this error
    message is simply wrong. if i add the user to the Administrators group
    everything works just fine, but this is not a reasonable solution to
    the problem.
    by the way: the WLAN connction is not "configured by windows", windows
    firewall is disabled, Access Connections is configured to allow all
    users to change the profile, i tried to uninstall/install Access
    Connections and the WLAN adapter, i tried to disable the configuration
    free wireless connections service of Windows.

    i hope anyone can come up with a solution for this problem.
