Question about Lenovo ThinkPad T61 Notebook
Lenovo N 3000 N500 running Windows Vista Business
I can't connect to wireless internet. The problem is almost same as below. This is what's happening so far...
Using Access Connections, I can use the wireless radio to find the network I want. It's a public wireless connection (in a library). It has signal strength of 60%. This has been more than fine for me in the past. Everyone else is using it so why can't I!?!?!
When I try to connect through Access Connections, I get the following message:
Unable to connect to the selected wireless network. You may need to configure your system to support the authentication method that is in use. Do you want to configure now?
I click Yes, (don't really know what I'm doing at this point so just OK out of that window)
Then it tries to connect. It then goes through Applying wireless settings - OK, then when it says 'waiting for association, it fails.
If I connect through networks, I can connect to the local network only, but not the internet.
What I've tried to fix it (don't even know if any of this is relevant...):
Made sure it's automatically setting IP address.
Switched off Windows Firewall
Boot in safe mode.
Checked the network adapter and it is working properly and has up to date drivers.
In Control Panel- Network connections, under Wireless Network Connections, I've disabled/enabled TCP/IPv6 and TCP/IPv4 in various combinations.
Thought I may as well let the cat have a go at fixing it after all that lot.
Run command prompt as administrator.
ipconfig /release shows: No operation can be performed on Wireless Network connection while
it has its media disconnected
ipconfig /all shows:
Primary Dns Suffix.....:
IP Routing Enabled.....No
WINS Proxy Enabled.....No
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection
Pl help asap!
You need to get the wireless authentication details from the library's front desk to configure your wireless connection. They should be able to help you.
