Just got my T400 a week or so ago and have been getting the following message in Event Viewer:

Type:Warning
EventID: 5033
Source: Netw5x32
Description: Intell(R) Wifi Link 5100 AGN: The adapter has detected that the Token Ring cable is disconnected from the adapter. Please reconnect the Token Ring cable. The adapter will continue to try to reset until the connection is repaired.

I have:

* Updated Intel drivers and management software
* Installed XP SP3 and all updates

Well... either you have a TokenRing adapter in this machine and it isn't correctly connected, or there is a bad error message for another NIC. Can you re-install the drivers for your NIC and see if that helps?

There is an Ethernet NIC there as well but the error message comes from the WIFI NIC. I have reinstalled both sets of drivers.
