Im trying to hook up to the internet to my old thinkpad X32 i used a modem didnt work and i noticed that its wireless its at the points when it says activate windows plzzzz help.


Hi,

When Windows starts asking for it to be activated, some of the functions of the computer are being disabled. What you need to do is to reinstall Windows by using your IBM ThinkPad X32 Recovery Disk. The Recovery Disk for your computer has a pre-registered and pre-activated Windows. Call IBM/Lenovo at 18774536686 to hopefully further widen your options. You might spend $40~$60 to resolve this issue.


I hope this works for you. Kindly reply/comment for further assistance. Good Luck!

I have 2 desk top computers hooked up to one internet source and they are hooked up to a box which my old linksys router was hooked to. I now have a lynksys wireless router G. i unplugged the internet...


Are you trying to set up the router.
You can do it manually without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online
through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the
modem
Then you need to connect the computer to the
router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the
settings of the router according to the ISP.

We are on Starband Satellite internet. Have windows programs , both vista and xp. We have the linksys G wireless internet system. How do we install it ?? So far, when we put it in, nothing works. No...


Yes you can but it is not as easy as using a router with a cable or dsl connection.
The 360 modem requires the Mission Control software in order to run properly so you can't just hook it straight to a router.
What you need to do is use an old computer to sit in the corner and act as a router(kind of) and then connect it to a real router.
When your finished you won't even need a monitor for it. You will need either two network cards in it or 1 network card and a usb port to hook it up to the 360 modem. Make sure network cards are also working correctly. Install the starband mission control software and make sure it is working correctly.

In Winxp go to network connections and right click on the one hooked to the starband modem and click properties. Now click on the advanced tab and check "Allow other network users to connect through this computers Internet connection.
You can plug the other network cable straight into a switch and this computer will hand out ip addresses through ICS(Internet connection sharing) built into winxp.

You can also get a wireless router and change the ip address of it to match the range that ics is handing out and disable the dhcp server so that you don't have two things handing out ip addresses.
If you use the web accelerator you will have to put it in the browser of each computer that you will be using (in the browser under proxy). It will be something like 192.168.0.1:9877.

Also make sure your running a firewall on your little router-computer. If the computer is running winxp professional you can take the monitor off and use remote desktop connection to check on things or to control it. Or search the Internet for VNC.

Router Won't connect to internet


The cable modem sometimes register the hardware MAC address of the connected device. So your PC may be registered and it won't accept the router now. Connect the WAN port of the router to your cable modem and power the modem off and on again. It should re-register the connected device and now your router should work.

Hook up router and can't access internet from wired computer.


Sometimes the modem-computer-router not "sync" together.
Try this.
1-hook the computer to modem. Internet yes? good.
2-hook the computer to router and check you IP. If it like 192.168.1.2,
the router's DHCP is working.
3-reset router to default setting.
turn off all and turn on modem, router, computer.
keep me posted.

if not try hooking up just the modem{no router] to the xbox.. if you can go on the internet threw the computer then the modem should let the xbox threw.

if not then try turning off both the modem and router so then reset.. pull the power cords and wait 25 secs

Router problem


Hi .
First who is your service provider?
Can you connect to the internet if you directly hook your modem to your computer.
1>If so connect your Modem to your router on the colour code slot on the router which says modem
2>Connect a cable from the router to your computer
3>The lan light on the router should be turned on
4>Check wether your lan says connected . To check that click start-> control pannel -> network connections
5>If it says connected try internet explorer settings
6>If it says limited or no connectivity
Click start ->run -> cmd->ipconfig
7>It should say ip address as : 169.254.x.x.
8>If so type ipconfig/release
9>It shoul say ip address: 0.0.0.0
10>Type ipconfig/renew on command promt
12>Disable and enable lan

Let me know if this helped and also if you dont what kind of messages you get .

Cable modem + dlink router


Your modem needs to be rebooted in order for your router to pull an IP from the modem. To do this, look for a little hole in the back of your modem and use a pen to push the button. Wait for the reboot to finish and then try again in about 20 seconds.
