No Internet Connectivity for Thinkpad R61e

I bought it about 8 months ago cuz it had XP. I'm just now trying to get it hooked to internet, either by hardwire or wireless. It has a wireless card. I've tried using the ethernet wire from my desktop (which is hooked through a router), but no luck either, even though it works fine on my desktop. I've tried all the diagnostics I know. I think it has something to do with not recognizing the IP or something. Any help I can get is greatly appreciated!

Lenovo r61e thinkpad wireless won't come on

Well there are many reasons but from what you've
said it can only be the Switch itself or your Router's
Firmware needs to be updated.

Go to Start: Type cmd in the command prompt Type
ipconfig press Enter look for the default gateway that's
your Routers IP Type the IP number into your Browsers
url or address bar press Enter. Once inside your Router
or Modem/Router view tabs and look for Update Firmware
Follow Prompts If this does not fix your problem then you
must further look into the Wireless Switch the Light is the
Switches Confirmation that it is Working Properly. Also
Driver will not cause this Function to not work and I know
you said the Drivers are Good and pls don't be Mad but has
the Adapter been Enabled with the Assumption your Computer has an RJ45 port for hard wiring.

Stay Positive and We'll Figure this Out.

Uninstall your wireless NIC and restart your computer, that will reset your card. If that dosent work, get a external Wireless card and hook a antenna to increase your signal, which also might be your problem. Or just pay for internet?

Internet connectivity - mouse related?

Purely coincidental, especially if your mouse was plug and play like 99% of them out there today. My guess is that you are having a totally unrelated problem with your internet. If I was going to troubleshoot it, I would simply remove the mouse and any software that you might have installed with it and then check the internet connection.
