Thinkpad Lenovo - suddenly no internet


How do you connect to the internet? Are you going through a wireless router or using a usb device provided by a cellphone provider?

Maybe you need to check your settings on the broadband service since you mentioned it. You could also reinstalled the broadband application if it is not solved.

I cant connect to wifi with my ibm thinkpad r30 laptop. id like to connect if possible.


If you have not yet installed the wireless card driver then install it.
To connect to your wireless router then -
Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Wont connect to my wireless routerits a thinkpad 2658 with a built in wireless connector I have linksys router. 2.4 ghz wireless My other computers in the house can connect just fine


does it see the router?

does it try to connect and ask for the passphrase? It maybe it doesn't like the encryption. you may have to set the router to something simpler like 64bit wep

check what channel the router is on and what channel the wireless card is set to.

I have installed Belkin N router onto my computer, however my laptop is not pickin the signal up and I cannot connect to the internet on the laptop just the computer


If you do not have an 'N' compatible wireless adapter in your laptop, make sure you set the Belkin to 'B/G' compatability mode. Also, the type of security if an older laptop is probably limmited to WPA-PSK, and you would need to set that up in the router as well. Extremely old laptop wireless adapters may be limmited to WEP, which is an old an unreliable security encryption.

Adding wireless printer to thinkpad T43


If you have a wireless router, the printer will talk to the router and not to the thinkpad. You would have to establish a connection between the printer and the router. Then share the printer to print.
If you dont have a wireles router and you are trying to connect your thinkpad to the printer directly, the wireless card in the thinkpad should be in the adhoc mode. ( See Wireless card properties )
Hope this helps
Thanks

Have you set up your router?
Which model router do you have? (fount on front, usually WRTG, or something along those lines)
Did you set up WEP security?

No connection or limited connectivity


It may be that you have to set the router to enabe DHCP, as this will give your pc an automatic IP address. The original address settings will be different than that of your router, so go into your wireless network card properties and ensure that obtain IP adress automatically is enabled. You may also need to run the dns flush; Click Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns then press enter.
