Question about Lenovo ThinkPad T61 Notebook

2 Answers

Internet connection I got my laptop a few days ago. The first night it worked fine. I was able to connect to the Internet with no problems (cable). When I logged off, I downloaded quite a few Window XP updates. The next morning, I wasn't able to connect at all. I also could not install my printer since it won't recognize the network. How should I fix this problem? Thank you Jyene

    For some reason, the System Restore will not let it restore back to the last point. I think it is due to the security updates.

    Under Network Places, I have no connections showing at all. Not the lan cable nor the wi-fi connection. Prior to all the updates, these showed up just fine.

    I know the network card and cable connection are working because upon bootup, I can hit the ThinkVantage button to access that feature without booting the OS. In this area, I can connect to the internet just fine. This is what is leading me to believe that the updates fragged some setting in Windows XP.

    Yes, I am having very much the same problem on my Lenovo T61. I check my NIC in device manager, and they are showing up just fine. But when I go to command prompt for the ipconfig/all it does not show anything????

    basically; I just lost the network connection...

    Help! help!

    I am having what seems to be the same issue. We usually use Dell, but the corporate standard is IBM. Corporate issued a new user this Lenovo T61. I loaded all of the apps and then moved to a faster network connection to pull the users data over. I noticed that I got a message that this was a new network would you like to label it. I did so and all was good. When I finished up and brought it to the user, the usb and network jacks in the dock station wouldn't work. I powered off and back on, with still no luck. This morning I noticed on the lid that it states easy access connection manages your network connections. I assume that this is what is the issue. I believe that I need to un install this software. It seems a little strange to block network ports on a business laptop.

No connectivty to internet

Your problem is very indicative of an assigned ip address to your wireless card. Assuming you have windows xp as your operating system. Go to start, run, type in CMD, once the dos screen appears type ipconfig and look to see what your assigned ip address is.

Connection drop-outs

Is your laptop wireless adapter a compatable brand. It doesn't necessarily mean the router is bad, you may even be getting RADIO interference from a cordlees or a cell phone in it's path. Do you have the capability to plug a cat-5 cable directly into your laptop from the router when you lose wireless? Check the wireless channels and see about changing the channel on your cordless phone too. May not work, just a hunch.

Good Luck
