As you move about? Or just sitting next to it? You can start by unplugging the ISP modem , remove battery, if applicable, Unplug the Wireless. Check ALL cables and connections, reseat ALL connections to the ISP modem and Wireless. Replace battery in the ISP modem, plug in, wait from the modem to selftest, plug in the wireless device, wait fro selftest, reboot computer, re-connect to wireless. Any change? If no , contact your ISP to test the signal, have a ISP tech come to analyze the signal, it may be a outside equipment issue.
This is usually because the wireless key code (password) was entered incorrectly or has got corrupted. Go to "view wireless networks" (from the icon at bottom right of your screen) find the one it says it is connected to and click "disconnect". Then re-boot the PC (not strictly necessary but a good precaution), go back to
"view wireless networks", find the correct one for your router and connect to that with the correct code key. I have seen it where the code key has been changed from the one written on the sticker on the router and if that is the case the "fix" will be more complicated.
Also, if this does not work, go to "control panel" then "Internet options" and then "advanced" and find and click on "reset". This puts Internet Explorer back to the default settings and often fixes it (though NOT if yours is an incorrect wireless key issue as talked about above) - Your home page will change to MSN but that is easy to change to your preference.
Its not your Notebook problem but it is just a setting problem. You haven't make any setting but the operating system are having certain default setting as per the need (i.e. for dialing rule it would be set some local number in which region you have default apply during installing of os, etc) Just contact your service provider for support and setting. While if you want to access the wireless network just switch on your wireless network adapter then go to network and sharing center and in that you will find connect or disconnect option. Just click it and you will be get all the available connection. Choose your network type and click connect. That's it.
You need to download the driver in order to get it to work. Suggestions are using the ethernet connection if possible, or by whatever other means you used to post this message and download the driver for the wireless network card. If you used a secondary computer to download the driver, use a jump-drive/pen drive/thumb drive/memory card/etc, to transfer to this computer.
the problem isn't the notebook it is the router.or wireless card.you probably have a wireless g card in the notebook and have a d-router.(not compatible wireless connectors)if it worked then stopped working then just unplug the wireless router for two min and plug it back in.it will reset and work if you had connection before.if that don't work post a comment and i will tell you another solution.
that unit has a driver problem, for the usb or ethernet, you might be able to re-install the specific drivers on their web site, and retry it there, unless the wireless in pci based and the you have a driver problem there, if you can use the ethernet connection then it's usb or pcmci, try that, if that doesn't work you need a tech to look at it.
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.)
