Question about Lenovo Computers & Internet

Open Question

I just bought a Lenovo yoga 910 laptop and can't connect to my home network.

My internet router uses a Verizon box several years old with WEP. Contacting them, they said my new computer might need an updated router to access it. When I try to log into the network, I get "can't connect to the network" response, but my router works fine on other computers and my cell phones.

SOURCE: can't find wep key or router username or password

Since you want to access the router setup page and get the wireelss security for your laptop you can try this:
Open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. In the picture above the address bar has http://www.google.com in it. Just replace all of that with the ip address of your router. By default the ip address should be set to 192.168.1.1.
You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now. By default the username is blank, and the password is admin. Click the Ok button to log in to your router.

If the default password didn't work you need to reset the router by pressing the reset button for 15 seconds so it will be back to its default settings with default password which is admin.

But if you successfully log in to the router page just go to the Wireless tab and there you can find all the wireless settings of your router including the wireless security key...

Make sure DHCP is turned off on the modem or else you will get ip conflicts. Also make sure it is plugged into the wan port on the router

SOURCE: computer and wireless router being connected but no internet

Hello,

To reset the Modem all you have to do is to get a Paper Clip or any object that is like a paper clip then just turn your router to the place where the LAN cables are and just nearby you will see a small button that is abit hidden , so just press that and while pressing it for 5seconds, remove the power cable and plug it back while the clip is still being pressed in the reset button.

Remove that clip from there and you should be able to see that your power light on the router is blinking, wait till it get stable, then all you have to do is login with going to 192.168.1.1 then enter the default username and password which is either admin, admin, or root, password. or root, admin

Then just configure your router again and all shall be well.

THanks.
Hope this helped you.

SOURCE: Wireless Home network will not stay connected to internet

So you have a DSL modem connected to a router connected to a wireless router connected to both your computers? Sounds like you need to just get a wireless modem and throw all the routers away.

By any chance, are you trying to use something other than Windows to manage the wireless adapter? If you are, remove it.

Now, Click on Start, right click on Network highlight properties, and click on manage network connections on the Tasks menu.
Your two options will be the icons for your LAN and Wireless Network. Is it enabled and without red or yellow marks? It could be disable, it could be not connected and you can't view wireless networks because the switch is off, or it may just nut see your unsecure network (unlikely).

If the above is clear, right click on the wireless and highlight Properties and left click so it brings up the Networking tab. Highlight IPv4 and click on Properties. Make sure the Obtain dots are ticked. That should work, since you are running unsecured.
If it already is, check the red X or if it isn't click OK and close down the box.

Now, back to where your Wireless card is showing, right click it and you have Disable, Connect/Disconnect, Status, Diagnose etc.

If you're still Disconnected but not Disabled, click on Connect/Disconnect. Does it show your wireless network?

By this time, it should. If it doesn't post back. The other possibility is that you take your computer to a wireless internet cafe, McDonalds, Panera Bread, or motel with WiFi and test it there.

I have a compaq laptop which i've had for a year or so. My laptop connects fine with every other internet broadband but not our new home one, and every other laptop in the house connects to this internet...


Compaq Presario V6000T now retired at HP (zero support)
ok its old. 12 long years old now!@!!
first learn that old laptops do not have modern wifi chips.
like other PCs have, a fact.
the answer is Encryption modes.
WEP , WPA or WPA2.
in my home we have WPA2 ONLY AT THE ROUTER.
for security reasons and no old laptop works with WPA2
then learn other homes running old gear, routers.
have WEP on only
and most new PC have that disabled, or gone now.
WEP is net secure now at all so is gone.

now lets answer you in more basic forum
why not learn to setup the PC and your router the correct way.
if your PC only does WEP/WPA (look does it?)
then
in the router, turn that on. if using wep turn it on, and know that you homes router can be hacked easy.
if you have WPA, turn that on, and use only that if the PC can not use WPA2. use WPA for sure, at LEAST.
turn off TKIP (use AES mode) too,.

im reading your PC spec now.
what wifi?
it has 802.11b/g
in most cases we must find out what wifi chip is there.
and what OS you run, you never said windows what?
then get the newest driver for that wifi chip.
some are not available.
finding the chip true name is not easy.
I can but I have powerful scanners.
the cure is , use the unsafe protocol
or upgrade the driver,
or buy wifi dongle USB (new) and use it. easy and cheap.
use WPA2 only. if wise.

next time post what OS you have
nobody can match working drivers lacking that key fact
is this stinking XP the DEAD OS? or vista? it too is now dead.

from another computer, go to the routers configuration screen and make sure the status shows that it is connected to the internet. Also the routers internal LanIP address must be 192.168.1.1 for the netbook to work.

I dont know to use wifi in LENOVO 3000 Y410


Hi. First things is you should have a wireless router there or you are at a certain hotspot where there is a free wireless internet access e.g Starbucks. Procedure below:

  • 1 Purchase a wireless router that fits your needs and price range.
  • 2 Follow the router's manual to set up the router and its Internet connection, which will probably require connecting a wired client to the router. Once the wireless router is set up, the wired connection is no longer necessary. However, it's best to leave the wired client connected if it's a separate computer from that on which you're going to set up WiFi. If something goes wrong, you can access the administration interface again.
  • 3 Gather information from the setup process. In order to set up the wireless client, you will need to know the service set identifier (SSID), the Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key and the channel and mode.
  • 4 Boot up the laptop and plug in the WiFi card. This will not be necessary if your laptop has an integrated WiFi card.
  • 5 Install any drivers needed to use the WiFi card. Insert the disc that came with the WiFi card and follow the on-screen installation process. Most discs will trigger a new hardware wizard that makes installation extremely simple.
  • 6 Double-click on the "WiFi Connection" icon. It can be found in the system tray at the bottom of the laptop screen.
  • 7 Click on "Properties."
  • 8 Select the "Wireless Networks" tab.
  • 9 Use the "Add" button at the bottom of the dialog if your WiFi network isn't in the "Available Networks" section.
  • 10 Click on "Configure" when you see your network's SSID in the "Available Networks."
  • 11 Enter your network's SSID and WEP key.
  • 12 Click on "Start," then choose "Connect To" and "Wireless Network Connection." Your computer should now be able to access the WiFi network. If the WiFi network is connected to the Internet, it should also be able to connect to the Internet.

    Probably your network is secured so you will need to configure connection (provide WEP or WPA passkey to connect).
    Double click on wireless network name you wish to connect and put encryption key

    PCMCIA Verizon BroadBand Internet PC Card


    You COULD do it, but man.

    you are gonna be charged for each MB used, and honestly, it would be a terribly impractical approach.

    Just to humor you, you'd do it as such.

    Set up your laptop to run all the time. Have the Verizon card plugged in, and always active, and set to never drop connection. You'll now need a crossover cable, and you'll run the rj45 crossover from the ethernet on your laptop to the WAN port on your router. You'll then need to bridge the connections. Some versions of Windows support internet connection sharing; effectively doing the same thing. Now, you should have active internet.

    Now, you're going to be charged per MB, you're gonna have a SLOW SLOW SLOW SLOW connection, and you should expect $1000 phone bills monthly.

    Cannot maintain wireless connection


    Try manually add the network. If the problems continue, I would turn the laptop in for repair/replacement (if it under warranty).
