Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.

To reset the router:

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

3. Configure the router.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a cable connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings under Setup tab.
b. Select No for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Scroll down on the center page and look for the Router MAC Address section. Set it to Use computer MAC address and click on the Apply button.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a DSL connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings.
b. Select Yes for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Select Other on the Internet Service Provider drop down box.
d. Enter your ISP's username (username@ISPdomain) and password. Then, click on Apply.

4. Configure the wireless settings.

a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
b. Change the SSID to any unique name.
c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).
d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit".
e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number.

Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection.

f. Click Apply button to save the changes.
g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it's 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle.

5. Power cycle.

a. Power off the modem, router and computers.
b. Turn on the power of the modem first and wait for it to initialize, the lights to stop blinking.
c. Power back the router and the computers. Check if it will be able to get online.

If you have wireless computers, you can connect them wireless to the router. Kindly follow the instructions below:

6. Connect wireless computer to the router.

If you are using Windows XP with Service Pack 1, please follow the steps below:

a. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer.

Your router actually works better without the installation disk because the program on the cd is actually known to be very controlling. If it is setting up your router you are having trouble with, send me a message of call netgear.

The same model ThinkPadcan have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless youknow exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download allthe drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver.

Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEBsite - support/download page and download the latest Windows device drivers foryour model computer, Use this link: - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true You can download thevarious drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, theywill then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\drivers Then install thevarious drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).

Hi.

You need to reinstall the system using the licence number on the sticker usually placed at the bottom side of the laptop.

Microsoft does not distribute replacement disk to reinstall OEM licenced Windows, so that you will need to find a disk.

If you want to purchase a new licence, you can get one from the Dell store.

A common way to proceed is downloading a disk with the operative system corresponding to the version on the sticker (eg. Windows XP Home), and reinstalling the system.

This practice is not endorsed by Microsoft, but it is not illegal, providing that you use a genuine licence number valid for installation on this computer.

THis is the operation performed also at local computer shops to reinstal OEM operative system.

The operation is done for a small fee at computer shops. A good option would also be having the job done at a local shop.

If you want to DIY, you will need a Windows install disk of the same version printed on the licence sticker.

A way to get the disk is by downloading the disk. Please be aware that most persons making the download available are breaking the law by also providing invalid licence numbers or programs to disable Windows Validation procedure. If you decide to download the disk, also be aware that software distributed in this way may contain viruses.
In no case use a licence that does not belong to your computer genuine license, or does not come from a genuine Microsoft system COA sticker that can be installed on your computer.

To download the disk you will need at least three programs:

1) a p2p downloader: µTorrent

2) a p2p search utility: Convivea - Bit Che

2) a CD/DVD burning utility: Free CD/DVD burning

Install the downloader, then the search utility. Search a Windows disk for your same version. Choose one that does not offer crack or validation cheating. Download may take over one day to complete.
When download is complete burn a CD by installing CD burning software.

Start the C610 with the Windows disk inside and reinstall Windows.

After installing the operative system you will need to download and install all the software drivers listed here.

The operation is quite complicate, and system reinstall is suggested to an advanced computer user.

If you have not done anything similar before, better taking the laptop to a shop, or contacting Dell to arrange a repair. This will also exclude the risks related to download of not verified ( and often non-legal) software using P2P.

Repair cost at t shop starts at about $50.

Regards.

Lost install disk


You don't even need the installation disk! Just do these easy steps:
Plug in your PC directly to your router. And make sure it is turned on. Also plug in your MODEM into the routers modem port.
On your computer open up Internet Explorer. Then in the address box type in: routerlogin,net
User: admin Pass: password
if password for the password does not work then just leave the box blank. Then just complete the steps.
If this works or if you need help then PLEASE email me:
pmt47@comcast.net
email me wither it works or not!
