While that is a fabulous picture I cannot tell the model number from it.

Go to IBM's website, get the windows xp wifi drivers for your model assuming it has built in wireless. If you have an add on card go to the website of the maker (dlink, linksys etc.) of the card for the proper driver.

It's a T40

Go to the driver page and under the heading "ThinkPad 802.11bg wireless LAN Mini PCI adapter" download the driver for 2000/XP.
