You need to download the driver from lenovo's website for the ethernet port, windows xp does not install this automatically. When you download the driver and there may be several for your model and sometimes I just have to try them until one works, and run it, it will acutally unpack it to some subdirectory of C:\DRIVERS and then you have to run setup from there, or if no setup file there, you might have to do the install hardware choice under control panel and choose have disk rather than search, and point to that directory

The drivers you need are available from the website listed below, please note that the drivers only support Windows XP and below. Because of the age of the laptop, you will not find drivers to support Vista/7:
You'll need to reset your password. Just access your CMOS battery on your motherboard, remove it for a while and you'll have reset your entire BIOS to its defaults, next, power up your computer and you should be good to go...

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.)
I currently own 3 Thinkpad T-20 Laptops. They all have a 700 mhz processor in them, and so will yours, more than enough to run windows xp, in fact, I am running Windows XP Profession on one of them. The PC100 is the type of memory it uses, not the processor speed. i recently installed a 120 gb drive in one of them so you will have no problem installing a 20 or 40 gb drive, or larger.
