Re: ibm thinkpad r 52
Your internet signal comes from a box connected to the telephone line (usually). A wire comes out, but where doe sit go to? Does it go to another box with a little antenna on it? If yes, than that box is the router.If not, than when you connect your internet via cable, the wires should come directly rom that box, correct? In last case you have a wireless modem.
Either way, you have w\a wireless connection as well, bets way to check the connection is to have somebody else with a laptop, give them your settings and see if it works. If it doesnot work, your connection might need a hard reset.simply unplug the powerplug from the socket of the box where internet comes in your house and leave it out for about 10 seconds. Than plug it back in.
To check if your laptop is OK richt click on My computer and select properties fromthe menu. click on the tab hardware and click on device (the upper button) It will shows you a list of all devices in your PC and if somethign is wrong, you will see a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark in it (!). Most of the times you need to reinstall your drivers to have it solved. If there are no exclamation marks, your laptop is fine.

If you are running windows xp after the reformat you will have to load all of the device drivers. Ethernet adapter is one of them. So you will need to use a pc that has internet connection and go to IBM's web site and download drivers to flash drive then install then to the IBM thinkpad
No ur laptop dose not have wifi on it but u can but a
USB 2.0 Wireless Card Adapter to pick up wifi
Rate me if this is helpful to you
This is going to be with the machine, yes, too old. These machines take a 16 bit wireless card which is almost impossible to find since they stopped making them 6 or 7 years ago, and 16 bit cards were never produced by cellular providers, so a cellular card is completely out of the equation. The cards on the market today are a 32 bit card. I know you're trying to go wireless, but if you want to connect to high speed, you can use a bus port ethernet card that will allow you to plug an ethernet cable into the machine.
I'm not sure I understand. Answer these questions and I'll be able to assist. Is the cable your referring to the ethernet cable or cable internet service? Do you have a wireless router with your internet service? If so, then is the ethernet cable attached and connected to the internet while attempting to connect wirelessly? List any other info you think may be pertinent to the problem, and I'll be able to help.
A few years ago, i too had an IBM thinkpad and encountered some issues as well when connecting to the internet.
The IBM 2647 does not have a built in wireless card, meaning that you need to purchase one from your local electronics store to use wireless internet. The software provided with these CD's can often be quite helpful and will help you set up the connection.
The 2647 only supports an analog modem connection, and the modem in the area you are attempting to connect via ethernet may use a digital modem. Adapters are available although they are quite pricey (ranging from $200 and up.)
To my knowledge, your laptop (IBM ThinkPad X30 2672) does not have any built-in WiFi. It's modes of connection are IrDA, modem, Ethernet, USP, Firewire aside from the regular serial & parallel. This would indicate that if you are wireless you either have a USB dongle or PCMCIA card. Please post back with your WiFi brand/model and your Operating System. Further, please post back likewise your WiFi AP/Router brand/model.
The message "a network cable is unplugged" pertains to the absence of a lan cable connected to your Ethernet port.
Good luck, kind regards and will await your second post.
