Question about Lenovo Computers & Internet
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.

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

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.
Hope this helped you.

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.
