You need to have an Internet Service Provider. You connect the router to a modem from the cable Service Provider or through the phone line for BT. Then you can connect wired or wirelessly to internet through the router.

Please describe your set up in detail and tell me your Internet Service Provider. I may then be able to help you more ...

I cant connect to wifi with my ibm thinkpad r30 laptop. id like to connect if possible.


If you have not yet installed the wireless card driver then install it.
To connect to your wireless router then -
Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Wont connect to my wireless routerits a thinkpad 2658 with a built in wireless connector I have linksys router. 2.4 ghz wireless My other computers in the house can connect just fine


does it see the router?

does it try to connect and ask for the passphrase? It maybe it doesn't like the encryption. you may have to set the router to something simpler like 64bit wep

check what channel the router is on and what channel the wireless card is set to.

We can't get our IBM T30 to connect with our Linksys router . The computer has a 3com wireless card


Has the Wireless card ever worked attached to another wireless router?

Is the card an internal miniPCI card, and is it an official IBM card for your region? Thinkpads check whether the card is for the correct region before configuring them in the Windows drivers.

Are you using the Thinkpad Assistant Wireless tool. I have found that it appears to be impossible to configure this software for 64 bit WEP or WPA PSK authentication.

First you most likly need a wireless card now along with a wirless card youll need a modem card and ethernet card secondly the bluetooth device may not be working out the greatest so if you downt want all the crads I suggest getting a usb wireless connection which is specifaclly for high speed wireless connections. These can be purchased at any computer store.

Wireless Internet connectivity not working.


Does it recognize your wireless network?
I your wireless switched on on the laptop, most laptop have a separate small switch to swicth on/off the wireless option, indicated by a small antenna with some waves.
Does it recognise any wireless network at all?
Try connect to a hotspot or unsecured network to see if that works. Double check all settings for your own network in your router and your laptop. 1 typo in a security password can be enough to be unable to connect.

Laptop.. cannot connect to internet


if you want to use wireless connection you have to have a wireless router, and you connect your internet cable into the router, so after you can have a wireless connection with your laptop and his wireless card, and you can work with your laptop everywhere in your house.
you can buy a wireless router in every computer shop.
last thing if you have a desktop PC you can connect a new internet cable to the wireless router (type RJ45)
I hope this helps
Please rate accordingly
Thank You
