Check the printer directions..some printers have to be set discover able inorder for your Lenovo device to see it. Some printers and devices time out after 3 min and therefore have to be set in discoverable mode again

SOURCE: Netgear WG602 wireless router, Connection Local only !

What I think is you unplgged them at the wrong times.

Do this:
(in this order)

  1. Turn off the router.
  2. Turn off the modem.
  3. take out all the Ethernet cords from the router, EXCEPT the one coming from the modem
  4. Now turn the modem on.
  5. Wait for the lights, then wait about another minute for it to settle.
  6. Turn on the router, make sure the Internet,Lan,Wlan,etc lights are on and functional if it doesn't display a light let me know.
  7. Now depending on what your wireless network (SSID) is called try to connect to it. Go to Start>Network>Click Network And Sharing Center at the top>on the left select Manage Wireless Networks>now click add, if your network is already on the list shown select it and click remove otherwise click "Add" click "add network in reange of this computer" select your network name and click connect.
Now tell me the errors, like if it says connection limited,etc...


Thanks,
Cam

SOURCE: can not print through my printer

Your printer has to be a network printer first of all. You cannot print through access to the computer it is hooked up to. If it truly is a network computer then you can get the WEP or WPA key by accessing the router via a computer that can go online. Google the IP address for the model number and make sure you also google the default username and password. If you cannot get into the router because someone set a new user and password then reset the router by pushing the reset button on the router. You can then go into your router and access the passcodes and info in "Wireless Security". It will list your net name and passphrase if using a WPA or a WEP key if using a 128 or 64 bit encoding. Use the highest encrytion you can. If your using XP you will have to use a WEP key (don't argue this you other experts) as XP is not really happy with WPA. Vista, although it sucks is good at networking and can use the higher WPA encryption choices. Vista is based on NT which was built to network well so it can do amazing things when trying to network it is just the rest of the program that sucks. Be Well

How do i reset a Lenovo Thinkpad T500


Reset could mean one of several things. I assume you know how to simply reboot it. If it is hung you can hold the power button down for about 6 seconds to turn it off.

If you forgot the password, contact Lenovo support at http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/
Provide them with proof of purchase and original receipt to prove ownership of laptop.

If you want to restore factory defaults then installed on the ThinkPad T500 is a program called Rescue and Recovery, which helps you diagnose and fix problems with the Windows operating system. To access this software, reboot your T500 and press the oval-shaped blue ThinkVantage button -- located on the upper-left area of your keyboard -- when the ThinkPad logo appears. When the Rescue and Recovery menu appears, choose the option that describes what you want to do. Follow the directions on the screen to run the appropriate action.

If you need the recovery disks then try
