Keeps loosing wifi signal


Try resetting your wireless router. Power cycle it through.

Symptoms:
lost Internet access on all devices
unable to go online
no Internet connection on router
router Internet LED symbol is amber
To powercycle your home network:
Turn off the router by unplugging it. If you have a modem and router in one device, turn it off then proceed to step 3.
Turn off the DSL or cable modem for three minutes.
Note: Some modems are equipped with a backup battery. If your modem have one, please remove the backup battery to completely turn off your modem. For common cable modems equipped with backup batteries, please see Performing a full reset of cable modem with battery backup
Turn off all computers attached to your network.
Turn on the DSL or cable modem first and let it boot. Let it complete its connection to your ISP before proceeding to the next step. One of the indications that the modem have completed its connection is by seeing a green light on the modem. If you have a modem and router in one device, proceed to step 6 after it connects to your ISP.
Once the modem completes the connection to your ISP, plug in the router. Let it complete its power on test before proceeding to the next step.
Restart your computers.

An Internet worm is a malicious software program that spreads through computer networks. If any of your computers are infected by an Internet worm, they may begin spontaneously generating network traffic without your knowledge, causing your Internet connection to appear slow. Run antivirus software regularly to diagnose and remove these worms from your computers.

Can't connect to internet on my IBM T40 think


You need to supply some more information, are you trying to connect wired or wirelessly? For either first see if your network adapters are installed. Right click on "my computer" either on desktop or start menu. Then choose properties then hardware then device manager this is slightly different depending on your operating system but you need to get into the "device manager" Google it if you cant find it. i.e "how to get into the device manager in windows vista" Once in look for the "network adapters" tab drop down the + sign and see if they are both listed and there are no "!" going thru them, if there are then you need to download drivers, if not and they are installed properly then to connect "wireless" you should see a series of bars by the clock on the right side of the taskbar some computers have a switch to turn the adapter on or off some have a key combination such as fn+f2 or f5 etc., there will be a wireless icon on the key to identify it. If on then when you left click on the bars you can choose veiw available networks, choose yours and highlight it and choose connect, if it is a secure network you will need your network key or passphrase. Wired: just plug it in to the ethernet port and it will try and connect to the network. If you are getting a limited or no connectivity icon you must reset your modem and router in this order. Disconnect (power) to your modem and router if cable unscrew coax cable also. all lights out screw cable back in, then power on your modem..WAIT for all lights to come on solid (with dsl the dsl light should be on and solid not blinking) once your modem is up then plug in your router wait for all lights to come on. Thsi should put your computer online. If not, open internet explorer then go to tools / internet options / lan settings make sure that proxy server is NOT checked. If it is uncheck it and choose "automatically detect settings" above it. Most likely if it was checked you have some rogue phony antispyware on there and your computer needs to be scanned for issues. one last thing you can always right click on the intenet icon by the clock and choose "repair" wired or wireless it will reset the adapter and correct the problem. I think I covered everything not knowing your OS

The thinkpad T-40 will not open the internet


Have you ever used this computer to get onto the internet?
To do so, you will need to have the computer connected to either a WIFI network or attached via an Ethernet cable to a modem or router which is itself connected to the internet.

Assuming you are doing this at home and have an internet service and a router or modem that is connected to your internet service provider, the best way to get started is to connect a cat-5 or cat-6 Ethernet cable to the computer and router. The Ethernet cable looks like a fat phone cable. Your modem or router should have sockets labeled as 'to computer' or 'to LAN' and 'to WWW' or 'to Internet'. The cable going to your computer should be plugged into one of the jacks going to the LAN or computer (depending on the terms they use).

Depending on how your Windows OS is set up, you may see a little icon in the lower right next to the clock that is a picture of 2 mini computers overlapped. Ideally, before you plugged in the cable, there was a little red X over one of the computers and now there is a little blue earth. If so, you are good-2-go.

If not, you will need to go into your 'Control Panels' which is off the start menu (picture of the windows icon in the lower right corner). In your control panels you will find an option that is called something like 'network setup' and from there you will find an option for 'Set up a network connection'. To help you further I would need to know which flavor of Windows you are running and ideally what sort of ISP you are using, and what sort of home router (if any) you are using.

Good luck.
