Question about Lenovo ThinkPad T61 Notebook

1 Answer

Occassionally on start up my thinkpad will not recognize any network servers and I can't get into control panel or anything else. I have to reboot, sometimes as many as 10-12 times before it finally "catches" the network. This has occurred in both the docking station and out.

Need a better explanation of "can't get into control panel". Error message, is the disk light on and it won't respond. See if you can do a Ctrl/Alt/Delete, go into task manager, list the processes, click on CPU heading to order the processes by who is busiest and see if some process is dominating the machine. You should run a virus checker. You should run a spyware checker like spybot s&d to help clear this

If you are not seeing the 3g modem in Device Manager (Start > Run devmgmt.msc and press Enter, or access via control panel) try installing the driver for your systems 3G modem , which I believe is available in the link below, but enter the serial # etc. on the page just to be sure you get the right one. If the modem is showing as an "Unknown Device" or has a Yellow Exclamation Point displayed to indicate it as a non-working device in the Windows Device Manger, try right clicking on it, select uninstall, and check the box to delete existing driver software and reboot. Once rebooted, it should re-detect the modem and install the needed drivers automatically.
Note that from Device Manager, you can from the View Menu select "Show Hidden Devices" and see devices not normally displayed., so see if anything shows up there too.

How to use comupter as sever


Proxy server
Use a Computer as a Proxy Server
Small networks can still take advantage of a proxy server.
The Microsoft Windows operating system allows you to turn your computer into a proxy server.
A proxy server is a central computer on the network connected to the Internet.
Other computers on the network use the machine to connect to the Internet.
The Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) configurations on the machine allow you to turn your computer into a proxy server.

Click the Windows "Start" button and select "Control Panel."
Double-click "Network and Internet Connections."
Double-click "Network Connections" to view a list of network card settings.
Right-click your network card icon and select "Properties."
For most users, this icon is labeled "Local Network."
Click the "Advanced" tab.

Check the box named "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection" in the section labeled "Internet Connection Sharing."
A warning message pops up telling you that your IP is reset for the proxy computer.
Click "OK."

Reboot your computer for the settings to take effect.
You also need to reboot each client machine on the network to ensure they see the proxy server.
Turn a Computer Into a Server
When you have more than several computers and users who want to share files and resources, whether in your home or in a small office, you can convert a computer into a server.
Building a server out of a computer will allow users to access files whichever computer they use to access them.
An example of the resources that can be shared is a printer and shared folders such as photos and documents. Here's how to convert a computer into a server.

Prepare your computer.
Clean up the computer with unnecessary files to save on space.
If your computer is really old, install the latest operating software so that it is compatible with the rest of the computers that will share its resources.
For this example, we are installing Windows XP.
Check the hard drive space or capacity if you have enough.
You can do away with 256MB sized old computer, but you may want to think about adding more disk space for future needs.
You can easily buy extra internal or external hard drives to bump up your disk space to a capacity that you would desire.
Try purchasing a 10GB extra disk drive then insert it in computer or connect via a serial port or USB hub it if it is external drive.
To install the hard drive driver on XP, let the hardware wizard run you through the options.
You can install the driver with the installation CD software that your hard drive came with.
Follow the options during installation. ,


Check your computer if the network card (ethernet card) is functioning properly. if it does not, you would need to install a NIC or Network Interface Card.
Some old computers have 10 megabit cards, but if you want to have high network performance and better connectivity through your LAN (Local Area Network) then you would need to upgrade your NIC by installing a 100 megabit or 10 gigabit NIC.
Install your network card driver using the installation CD that came with it then follow the installation wizard.

Get a network router. Connect this router to your high speed connection.
The most common ones to use are Netgear, Linksys or DLink routers.
Choose a wireless router so that if you have wireless users they can connect easily (plus this will save you on trying to connect cables to the router all over the place).
Set up your network connections.
Click on "Start," "Control Panel and "Network and Internet Connections."
Pick a task from the options listed or pick a control panel icon, in this case "Network Connections."
If you are set up to pick up the IP Address of your computer automatically, one you have installed your NIC in Step 4 and rebooted, it will pick up the connections automatically whether plugs in using a LAN or network cable or using wireless card.

Rename your computer. Name it so that it can easily be identifiable in your network.
You can either name it simply "SERVER" to be easily recognized, but it is all up to you how you want to name your server.
To name your server if you are using Windows XP, you can right-click on "My Computer" then click on "Properties."
Go to "Computer Name" tab then click on "Change."
Other Windows operating systems or versions would have this feature located somewhere else. Read the owner's manual that your computer came with it.

Create a shared folder by going to "My Computer" and "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents."
Create a new folder by right-clicking on the screen, then click on "New Folder."
Name the new folder "Shared Files" or anything that can easily be identifiable.
Take note that on Windows XP, any folder that you create and then dragged into the "Shared Documents" folder will be automatically shared by everyone.
You can restrict certain folders by dragging the folder out of the "Shared Documents" folder, then right-clicking on the file folder, clicking on "Properties," then the "Sharing" tab and finally "Make this Folder Private."
Create a shared resource by adding a printer or fax to use. Go to "Start."
Click on "Printers and Faxes" and "Add a Printer," then let the installation wizard that came with the printer or fax guide you.
Name your printer or fax (for example, "Shared Printer").
Then once the printer is installed, set it up so that you can share it by right-clicking on the "Shared Printer," then on "Properties," "Sharing" tab and finally on "Share this printer."
Connect any computer to your server.
Go to each computer and ensure they are connected on the same router.
Then go to "Start" and "Run," type in "EXPLORER," then on the menu click on "Tools" and "Map Network Drive."
A window will pop open where you will assign a "Drive" letter and a "Folder."
Choose any driver letter, for example "G" to denote "Group" drive or "S" to denote "Shared Drive," then type in the IP address of the server.
To do this, go to the server, then go to "Start" and "Run," type in "CMD" then type in "IPCONFIG." This will display your server's IP address.
Type the IP address on the "Folder" field on the computer.
You can also try if the computer will automatically find it by choosing the drive letter then clicking on the "Browse" button on the "Folder" field.
Start using the shared resources by going to the drive letter that has been assigned on your computer.

How to change the server aol to my google chrome on start up


Dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP) is a way to configure IP addresses and TCP/IP settings throughout your network.

The DHCP service is run on a machine with a static IP address so that the computers on the network can find it for automated configurations.

Setting the IP address on a Windows 2003 server is accomplished through the network configuration settings in Control Panel.

Click the Windows "Start" button and select "Control Panel." Double-click "Network Connections." In this section, double-click "LAN Connection."

This opens the configuration tool to set the IP address of the server.

Select "TCP/IP" from the list of configured network applications and click the "Properties" button. This opens a new configuration window.

Select "Use the following IP address" to set a static IP for the server.
Enter the IP address chosen for the server in the first textbox that is activated.

Enter the subnet mask and default gateway for the server.
The default gateway is usually the router on the local network or the DSL or cable modem on a small, home network.

Enter the DNS server address.
The DNS servers are separate servers on the network.

For small, home networks, the DNS server is provided by your service provider.

Click the "Ok" button to save the settings. Click "Ok" again at the general LAN properties window.

Renew settings on local computers. Computers that use the DHCP server for configuration need to be rebooted.

You can also use the DOS command prompt to renew settings.
The "ipconfig -renew" command refreshes the settings on client computers on the network.

or for home page browser

Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help

Click on the tools at the bottom of the drop down list will be internet options or
Click start control panel internet options you will see a home page box To Create Page Tabs type

each adress on its own line (type in google.com) or your preferred home page and browser
below that will be change search defaults click on settings you will see all search Providers
Toolbar extensions and Accelerators you have

have if dont need any of them you can disable or remove them


Click start type cmd press enter you will be in DOS mode
type in ipconfig press enter
you will see all of your internet connection details



Hope this helps

Hi, I have at&t DSL using a westell modem and set up a wireless network using a D-link gamer lounge router. It seems to work most of the time but occassionally develops an IP conflict with my wife's...


For any network, you should have one DHCP server. If you try and have more than one DHCP server, it may still work if you have non-overlapping assigned ranges. Also, it sounds like you have more than one network - the network between your westell an your D-Link and between your D0Link and its clients. My belief is that both of those devices can run DHCP servers, firewalls, NAT and so forth, and if the laptop gets multiple responses it can use the wrong one.
One thing that you could do to make things simpler is to put your westell in bridge mode and that will insure you have only one DHCP server, NAT, etc - the one on your DGL-4300.
By "Entire system", do you mean the laptop?
Chances are you can tell windows to "repair" the adapter and it will (given encouragement) disable and reenable the adapter, renew the IP address and so forth. There are command line tools as well, open a cmd and type
ipconfig /renew
to get a new ip address and avoid the reboot.
