Question about IBM ThinkPad 380ED

1 Answer

ThinkPad 380ED No problem when I'm hooked into a wired network for internet, but when I try to go wireless, either at home, or a free WiFi cafe, for instance, I show as being "connnected" but the internet explorer tells me it can't connect me to any websites.

HOW DO I CONNECT TO INTERNET WITH SYVANIA NETBOOK


First, you will need a place to connect to the internet. An ethernet cable (landline connection, wired connection) or a wireless connection (via wifi). You will only be able to connect via wifi if your laptop has a wireless network card as not all laptops do (though most new ones do have a wifi card).

For a wired connection, if you have a plcae then all you should need is to connect an ethernet cable from your PC to the wall or place with the interent service (home, cafe, etc).

For a wireless connection, you will need to open and view all wireless networks. Connect to the one you want to use. You may need a security code (WEP Key) or another passcode of a sort. Enter the passcode and you should be on your way. Let us know how it goes!

Won't recognize home wifi, though it does recognize cafe wifi


Check the settings on your router, make sure it is transmitting 802.11b AND 802.11g. Perhaps your previous laptop is accepting the signal that is possibly 802.11g, but the older laptop is needing b. If that doesnt work, go back to the cafe, and see if you are still able to connect. If not, check the settings to make sure wireless is still enabled. Some laptops have a slider button on the front or side to enable/disable wifi, one of mine has it and sometimes i accidently turn it off. If it is indeed on, try disabling it, and re-inabling it.

Compaq evo n610c wireless lan w200 - is network card internal? or do i need to purchase a card to get my computer to work at a wi-fi location...i need to know what i have to do to get internet at other...


The EVO 610 has a built-in modem and a network LAN but no wireless LAN.
If you wish to connect to the Internet at home and elsewhere you have a few options.
You can use a PCMCIA wireless network card or a USB wireless device. These devices will allow you to connect to WiFi places such as Internet cafes or free WiFi locations such as McDonalads, Starbucks and airports etc.
OR
You can use an Internet Service Provider that provides country and or state wide roaming access, and they usually use wireless netword cards that integrate with the mobile (G3) network.

You need to check with various Internet Service Providers to see what they offer, the various plans, costs and also if they offer roaming access.
Be aware that connecting to public WiFi networks can have security issues if you are not protected.

This is an old system, in order to get it internet ready you will need to purchase an ethernet bus card for connecting via ethernet cable, or a wireless bus card for connecting wirelessly. You can find these at Bestbuy or Walmart. As for the game manager, this system is going to be to old and doesn't have the hardware to support the program, basically, it won't work. Oh, the bus cards are also called PCMCIA slot adapters, just in case you run into some overly technical clerk when you're looking for them.

Are you trying to access your laptop (which you leave at home) from another computer away from home?
  • If so, head over to www.logmein.com and sign up for a free account. It's a wonderfully easy way to get remote control of your machine from another location without worrying about the networking.
Are you trying to use your laptop on the road and still have Internet?
  • If so, you will need some method for your laptop to connect to the Internet. If your laptop has a wireless WiFi card you can go to some location that has wireless internet. Many locations (such as hotels, cafes, and coffee houses) have free or paid wireless Internet service.
  • You can also get a Wireless Aircard as your friend said. These are a fee-based service from cell companies such as Verizon or Sprint that give you a card that plugs into your laptop and uses the wireless cell network to give you Internet access.

Wireless Internet Access


Hi, Normally there should be an Icon at the system tray (lower right) which is for the WiFi. Placing your mouse over the icons would tell you what the icon is for. Right clicking on the WiFi icon would show you whether it is enable or disabled. Double clicking on it would give you the WiFi access window where you can select which WiFi network you can connect to. Some of these wireless internet cafe would grant free access while others would need you to check-in with their admin or somebody and on certain cafes for a fee. Hope this be of some help to you and pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.
