Question about Lenovo ThinkPad R60 Notebook
I cannot get the laptop to connect to my home network. Neither will the browser (IE 6 or 7) connect to the internet. The hardware is all OK as SKYPE is working fine and any installations connect and download updates with no problems. The problem seems to have occurred after using the Norton removal tool to get rid of Systemworks 2005 and Norton internet security 2007. I did this as the overheads with Norton are now unacceptable. I have tried various settings including deactivating the firewall (windows native) I have also tried resetting the Workgroup membership parameters several times. I have monitored the connections and they are all checking out as good (wired and WIFI). The DHCP is allocating the IP address and it working without any problems in the dynamic mode with a quick registration. So:- IP OK, Hardware OK, Can connect but will not browse and will not network within the workgroup.
Stefanus, First off go to the command prompt, enter ?ipconfig /flushdns? and hit enter. Then try browsing the Internet. Lots of odd issues involving Internet connection failures are DNS related. Sometimes flushing the local PC cache helps. If that fails in the same command prompt enter ?ipconfig /all? and hit enter. Find the section that pertains to the network adaptor you are connecting to your network with. Find and supply us with the IP addr, subnet mask, default gateway IP and dns servers IP. Also are you using XP Home or Pro? Once you respond we?ll pickup from there.
