Sounds to me like u r running the dell in the usb, and it has to be on for the ibm to work, or you have a dual ip addressing problem, which is a negative to the ibm when the dell is off.

My son has a IBM think pad as well, and when he uses the Ibm with his linksys wireless router he has the same problem, or did until I addressed the dual ip address issue, which I had to change the Ip address on our netgear, and left his as was and changed the one from My Dell inspiron 8600, I suggest you go to the linksys web site and follow the re install of new drivers for your router and if possible upgrade. they have available w wireless handing software program available to linksys customers as a trial you can download called NETMAGIC which also works quite well, and your able to monitor your network and it usually works well, I've used it until I upgraded to my netgear wireless G router.
hope this info helps you out.

IBM ThinkPad T40: the problem is the following Modem HSP56 MR( Intel) doesnot work, Other devices:Nework Controller and unknown device doesn't work


Windows is missing the "device-drivers" for your network adapter and your modem.

On a different computer, access IBM's ThinkPad web-site, and download those device-drivers for your T40. Copy the device-drivers to either a CD-writable or to a USB memory-stick.

Move the media to your T40, and install from that removable media.

Had to reinstallwindows xp and i can't get computer to reconize modem


If you re-installed windows XP - you will also need to download drivers for the PC - Video, audio, chipset, modem, network etc
Heres a list of all drivers for a T40 http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-46258#modem
Goto to device manager - you will see yellow? or ! for devices that need drivers, some will just be unknown
how to get to device manager Press the Windows key (bottom left of the keyboard} and at the same time press the R key, now in the search box that appears - type devmgmt.msc
If the modem is an external modem for internet access - comment back with make and exact model

Dell Inspiron 2200; Win XP pro; detect router but no connect


Have you change settings on your router? if not try to disconnect and reconnect your dell computer. if still not working. turn off both laptop, turn off the router and modem. wait for 10-20 seconds then turn on the modem first, and if the modem is stable, turn on the router, and if it is stable, turn on the dell computer and try to connect. If still fails, try to delete wireless profile adn recreate it. If still fails, check device manger if there is a problem in your wireless driver. If still cannot connect, perform system restore.

My ibm thinkpad t40 can't connect to a belkin g router


Hi,
I'm assuming that its a wireless problem.
This method will hard reset the wireless drivers back to default settings, but before you perform this remove power from the modem and router for 2 minutes reconnect power and wait another 2 minutes for them to settle down.

Right click "computer" select "manage" and then "device manager", a list will populate, then click on the + sign next to "network adapters" and right click on the wireless adapter and "uninstall" the device, reboot the PC and wait for windows to detect the wireless card and install the drivers for it, this will appear in the system tray (bottom right hand side) when its done try to connect again.


Good luck

IBM ThinkPad T20


Wow, a lot of information but I'm unclear as to what you are trying to do.

Are you connecting the T20 directly to the T40 using a cat5 cable and then trying to access the internet on the T20 via the modem?

Connecting the two computer together using a normal cat5 will not work, you need to use a crossover cable otherwise you are connecting the send to the send and the receive to the receive.
You can also use a hub, a switch or a router if you have any of those on hand.

As for the modem, I suggest you unplug the telephone line from the modem and plug it into a phone and see if you can hear a dial tone. If you cannot hear a tone either the extension is bad (replace) or you outlet is defective. If you can hear a tone, the modem card may be defective.
