Hello. I have two laptops set up with DSL internet connection. The intel processor laptop is connected with ethernet to DSL modem; the AMD Athalon laptop is connected by USB port to DSL modem.
The printer stops printing, even though it says it is printing. I took it in for repair and it worked fine at the computer repair shop. The weird thing is though the computer repair guy printed off a print job I had queued a week ago and canceled because it never printed.
I just got print cartridges refilled instead of buying new ones, although it wasn't working with the other print cartridges even when they had ink, so I don't think that is the problem, but I'm no expert.
I do not currently have this printed connected to a fax line, as I am not using the fax at this time and wouldn't know how to set it up with DSL to use the fax anyway. The printer is connected directly to my AMD Athalon laptop.

IF you do NOT have DSL, "but I do not have DSL" (sic) then you must connect up to the internet, via a MODEM, the phone line connects to the Modem, the MODEM connects to the PC via Ethernet cable. Then you use the Connect to internet Wizard. You will need to enter your login and password, for your ISP, so you will be able to access the internet. You also must enter the ISP's PHONE Number to Dial up, FIRST, then you must enter your login, and password. Then you will connect up to your ISP, and be able to go onto the internet through them. That's it, really.
You have to make the Ip changes on the laptop not on the modem.
You said you have internet acces on one computer. Then use that computer to find out the exact IP address used by the modem.
On the laptop use the exact same numbers, (IP, Sub mask, Gateway, Primary DNS)
and chek if it works.
If you want to have both computers on the Internet, simply change the last number on the IP address ONLY.

Most desktop computers do not come standard with wireless connectivity, and the 530s is no exception. To connect to the internet, you will need either an ethernet cable to run between the computer and the DSL box, or a wireless card, which can be installed inside your computer, allowing you to access wireless networks.
Okay so if I understand your question....your desktop has DSL and you want to connect your laptop to the same DSL connection? If that is the case then what you need is a router. A router will share the DSL connection between the desktop and the laptop. A wireless router will allow your laptop to surf wirelessly if it has a wireless adapter or you can plug it into the ethernet port on the laptop. You can purchase one here. The instructions are pretty simple and straightforward and should be included with the router.
A few years ago, i too had an IBM thinkpad and encountered some issues as well when connecting to the internet.
The IBM 2647 does not have a built in wireless card, meaning that you need to purchase one from your local electronics store to use wireless internet. The software provided with these CD's can often be quite helpful and will help you set up the connection.
The 2647 only supports an analog modem connection, and the modem in the area you are attempting to connect via ethernet may use a digital modem. Adapters are available although they are quite pricey (ranging from $200 and up.)
