I have an IBM thinkpad with winxp sp2.. it detects other routers except mine! (the
brand is called levelone wbr3600.. it's up to date) although i can surf
wirelessly through my ps3.
I checked every encrytion type from the router.. I even disabled it. Still couldn't see my wireless connection. Anyway as i mentioned before i can connect my ps3 through wireless connection "almost" smoothly.
ahh...Everything was just fine until i tried to update my old router and trashed it while i was trying to update it wirelessly. Anyway thats a little off topic. i just wanted to add this detail too..

Have you change settings on your router? if not try to disconnect and reconnect your dell computer. if still not working. turn off both laptop, turn off the router and modem. wait for 10-20 seconds then turn on the modem first, and if the modem is stable, turn on the router, and if it is stable, turn on the dell computer and try to connect. If still fails, try to delete wireless profile adn recreate it. If still fails, check device manger if there is a problem in your wireless driver. If still cannot connect, perform system restore.
Hi, I'm assuming that its a wireless problem. This method will hard reset the wireless drivers back
default settings, but before you perform this remove power from the
modem and router for 2 minutes reconnect power and wait another 2
minutes for them to settle down.
Right click "computer" select "manage"
and then "device manager", a list will populate, then click on the + sign next to "network
adapters" and right click on the wireless adapter and "uninstall" the
device, reboot the PC and wait for windows to detect the wireless
card and install the drivers for it, this will appear in the system
tray (bottom right hand side) when its done try to connect again.
The T30 laptops do not have a on/off button that turns the wireless card on.
Once the wireless card driver is installed the wireless card will detect any wireless router and access point within its range. You need to configure the wireless card to connect into the wireless router or access point eg. the encryption, SSID etc.
The Thinkpad laptops have different wireless LAN cards installed, when you install a wireless card driver and it doesn't work, then install a different model wireless card driver. Also make sure the XP or Vista version of the wireless driver matches the Windows version that is installed on the laptop.
Go to the IBM WEB site to their support/download page and download the XP versions of the drivers you need for your model laptop.
You will need to do this from another conputer that is connected to the Internet.
