Question about IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook
I have a Thinkpad T30 and the wirless is connected but I can not get on the internet. I can get on the internes using a cable connection though.
The ipconfig/all works now. So I am not sure what the next step is. It gives a list of info that I am not sure what to do with,

If the router has a block of 4 ports (or more) on the back and one is not used yes -- the separate port which may or may not be connected to the Internet Service Provider's equipment cannot be used for this purpose. There is only one connection point on your computer.
Any connection requires
a unique IP address on the correct Subnet
the appropriate subnet mask for the network segment
the appropriate default gateway for the subnet
and one or more DNS addresses so names like
www.fixya.com can be accessed
the following work on both the wired and wireless adapter
this can be checked from a command prompt window using the command -
A second command can be used to determine of the network adapter is communicating with the router the command is
ping (default gateway)
where (default gateway) is replaced by the default gateway
returned by the ipconfig command above
could be 192.168.0.1 or something close in a home network.
4 timeout messages indicate failure and 4 message with elapsed time in ms (milliseconds) is success. the results can be mixed, but should not be in this case.
If you need additional instructions to issue these commands ask in a reply to this message and I will send you the detailed instrictions.
Record information returned by the above tests and return in a comment with the current problem description and I will respond with additional steps and questions or possibly a solution.
