Fnctn + F5
My T400 was recently switched from Vista to XP. Today I discovered when I hit FNCTN-F5 to bring up the WiFi+Bluetooth menu I get an error message saying I need to reinstall a WiFi driver and then the menu opens with Bluetooth but no WiFi options. My WiFi sysyem's working but there's apparently something wrong.

Is this something I can fix with a download/install or must I bring the computer in for service? Thanks.

In order to enable the Fn+F5 support for wireless on ThinkPads, Access Connections needs to be installed. However, you can then safely uninstall Access Connections if you would prefer to let Windows manage wireless, but the Fn+F5 functionality remains.

Access Connections is available from Lenovo's website.

I presume I can bring this in and have this done for me next week. TIA.
