Question about IBM ThinkPad T21 Notebook
I have a IBM Thinkpad T21 with internet issues. When I first got this laptop, it had all types of driver issues, so naturally, I reloaded XP and hoped that would help. It did fix most of my problems. There was so much spyware before I reloaded xp, I dont know if it was able to connect to the internet before or not. Now, when I try a wired connection to the router, it recognizes that it's connected, but only sends packets, but doesn't receive any packets, I try to ping, and it pings the loopback address ok, but try pinging a www.yahoo.com and always get a cannot find host. Now when I try my brand new wireless card, its weird, sometimes it will see the 6-7 secured connections I can connect to, then 2 seconds later, it's like they all disappear and I have nothing to connect to, even after hitting refresh multiple times. I tried pinging and pinging and it also pings the loopback address ok, but last night, I kept trying to ping host, and it usually would get about a 75% return on the packets, then other times , just outright cannot find host. Any ides to help ? I'm open to anything at this point
Bad cable, bad network configuration or bad motherboard, in that order.
Try manual settings for the wired connection, do a repair and see what the comment is.
