Okay, I want to buy a IBM thinkpad and I really don't understand the options available for network connectivity. Could someone explain what these things are for:

A.
Standard Communications
(Std) Intel PRO/1000 Gigabit Ethernet  
choice 1: IBM Integrated Bluetooth III with V.92 56k Modem
choice 2: IBM Integrated V.92 56k Designed Modem

B.
Communications
choice 1: IBM 11a/b/g Wireless LAN Mni PCI Adapter
choice 2: Cisco Aironet Wireless 802.11b Mini PCI Adapter
choice 3: Intel Pro/WIreless 2200BG Mini PCI Adapter

C.
Communications: Integrated Wireless (Std) Wi-Fi wireless upgradable:
choose 1 or all 3:
1. Erricson GC83 Edge PC Card
2. IMB 11a/b/g Wireless CardBus Adapter
3. Sprint PCS Wireless WAN Card

D.
Networking Adapters
choice 1: 10/100 EtherJet CardBus Adapter
choice 2: GoCard TR PCMCIA  UTP/STP
choice 3: Madge 20-3 Smart 16/4 Cardbus Adapter

The ultimate thing for me would be, to be able to connect to network via the wire (forget what its called ,its like an oversized phone wire)
in addition to being able to access a wirelss connection that is at the office without wire. What above lets me do that?

Thanks.

All of the T series have a hard-wired ethernet connection, so no problem there.  All you need for the wireless is the built in 802.11a/b/g adapter.  You want B1 since that is an integrated mini-pci card that will not stick out of your laptop anywhere.
