Question about IBM Lenovo ThinkPad R60 Notebook

Open Question

My IBM Lenovo R60 laptop is unable to detect my wireless router but I am able to connect to the wireless router using my other laptop and I am also able to connect to other wireless connection in the area but just not my own? I have checked that wireless is enabled on the laptop and that i have entered all the wireless details correctly ie the network codes match name of wireless is correct. I recently had to carry out a system restore using my xp disc so im not sure if that would have affected it.

SOURCE: Wireless network connection on IBM Thinkpad

Ok when looking at your question i became very currious as to the answer myself so i did a litttle research and i think maybe the info on this page here: http://www.eggheadcafe.com/software/aspnet/33307589/certificate-required-to-c.aspx
could be of some use to you . even though the link describes a diferent network adapter the information there is about the same exact error on a router of the same type

I hope this information helps ... if it does not then let me know and i will find some more answers since i used to have the exact same laptop that you have now R40

SOURCE: IBM Thinkpad will not turn on wireless connection

1st go to MY COMPUTER, RH CLICK-PROPERTIES,HARDWARE TAB, DEVICE MANAGER,NETWORK DEVICES. CLICK ON THE + TO OPEN THE INSTALLED
NETWORK CARDS. YOU SHOULD MOST LIKELY HAVE 2 LISTINGS 1- YOUR ETHERNET PORT
2-YOUR WIFI CARD. THERE SHOULD NOT BE AN EXCLAMATION POINT OR A QUESTION MARK, EITHER INDICATING A PROBLEM. IF YOU DO HAVE EITHER LOOK AT THE DRIVERS 1ST AND THE ACTUAL HARDWARE 2ND. IF BY CHANCE YOU DONT SEE YOUR WIFI CARD
THEN TRY REMOVING IT AND REINSTALLING IT. TURN ON YOU COMPUTER AND SEE IF
XP RECONIZES IT "NEW HARDWARE FOUND". YOU HAVE TO SUPPLY A DRIVER FOR IT AS
WELL. GOOD LUCK

SOURCE: forget BIOS Password (Laptop - IBM Thinkpad Lenovo R60)

For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.

SOURCE: I cant get a wireless connection on my IBM R40 using a Linksys G

I had the same problem with my R40 (2681) and a Linksys G router. The specs on IBM's/Lenovo's site indicate that the wireless card in the R40 only handles certain types of wireless encryption. The newer types (e.g. WPA) won't work on it and they are usually the standard on routers nowadays. My Linksys G router works fine with the R40 with WEP or with no encryption. Not ideal, but that's life with an old laptop.

Can't start my wireless modem


I think the problem is you cannot connect to the internet wirelessly using your laptop. The problem may lie in the modem or in the laptop itself.
First you need to isolate the problem. That is, determine if the laptop or your modem is the one that has the problem. If you can connect to the internet using your laptop in someone elses home network or free wifi outside your home, then the problem is your modem. BTW, modems don't have the capability to connect wireless devices to the internet. You need a wireless router. If what you have is a router, you're on the right track.
If your laptop can detect your home network, try connecting to it. If you're getting an error, call your Internet Service Provider. They should be able to help you fix the problem. Also, try updating the driver of your laptop's wireless card. You can do this by hardwiring your laptop onto your router, go to device manager, right click on your wireless card, then hit update driver. If nothing works, call your laptop's OEM.

Welcome to Fixya

Make sure that all driver are installed. Especially the wireless LAN driver. Go to control panel then click on system then click device manager. Look for the network adapter category. There should be no exclamation mark to any of the devices listed there. You can download all your computer drivers here. If everything are ok then all you need to do is to go to control panel. Click network connection. Look for icon named Wireless then click on it. Search your router and connect to it.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Sony Vaio laptop unable to detect wireless access point


CompuLayne: Hello bluebells953

Netgear is quite tricky as is with all other routers, but I don't think the router is your problem. Try to do the following.

1) Turn off Vaio laptop
2) unplug router
3) unplug modem
4) plug back in modem - wait for it to boot up
5) plug back in router - wait for it to boot up
6) turn back on the Vaio - log in and see if it sees the SID. If it isn't broadcasting, you might have to enter it in manually and select connect to non broadcasting network
