Question about IBM ThinkPad T21 Notebook
I have a Z61t ibm thinkpad and my wire less is not working whatsoever. (I am on a network cord so I know it IS NOT my proxy server settings that are a problem beause my internet is working normally on a cord)I have a comcast internet set up at my house and when I go to connect it (through Connect to>>Show all connections>>right--click>>view availabe wireless connections)and it says "not connected" next to the wireless I'm trying to connect to, then when I go to connect, the button says "disconnect" instead of "connect" I'm worried and really confused. If there is a setting that I need to change, please tell me and I'll change it A.S.A.P. Thanks!
You will have to remove the cable from your wired card first, as your pc cannot open 2 networking ports and obtain an ip address. The wireless card needs to be able to pick up the address and dns address from the router, so when your disconnected from wired card, your wireless should search for wireless connections and allow a conection.
