You may need to set a key on your router and PC (recommended for security anyway). Access your router with your internet browser (default is often 192.168.0.1 - listed in your manual) and get the long default key. Put this key into your wireless card set up and reboot.

find that ip of the router e.g 192.168.0.1 or something like that
gott to the lan network connection of pc got tcip option
in ther enter the ip addree 192.168.0.xxx ( anything but ther router address) subnet mansk 255.255.255.255.0 defualut gateway the routers ip address primary dns router router ip address leave the secondary ip blank
if the message aquiring ip address comes in computer then it says that the wireless router is not giving an ip address to your computer....
check if any static ip address is assigned to your wireless connection...if so change to "obtain ip address automatically"....
right click on wireless network name> goto properties > authentication tab> uncheck "enable IEE athentication"
now try to connect again,still not restart the computer once......
this will resolve the issue....
still if it is not connected then check for the security settings in the router...
if your computer is XP/MAC, it may not recognize WPA security type.... change it to WEP type and try to connect again....
Hi, If your newer usb wireless adaptor does not have the same settings as your router this is the problem you have. First make sure you have installed the cd software that came with the usb adaptor without it plugged in. After that is complete make sure the wireless adaptor is seen by the computer it is attached to. Then you need to open the settings of the usb adaptor and set it up same as your router's settings. This includes the WEP security password if you use it.
This sounds to be a compatibility issue with either the wireless software or wireless card. Check to see if there are any updated drivers for the wireless card at IBM's support site. If there aren't any or the card still doesn't work after the updated drivers are installed, then you might try a different/newer internal wireless card, or a universal external wireless card for use with your home system.
It appears to me that you have everything plugged into the desktop PC. This is not the way that it should be done. Plug the cable modem into the wireless router via the Internet/WAN port. Plug your desktop PC into one of the ports numbered 1-4. Now connect to the router via the wireless connection for the router and you should be able to now connect to the internet with your laptop.
If it still does not work, power down everything in this order: Laptop, Desktop, Router, Cable Modem. Bring everthing up in the reverse order (Cable Modem, Router, Desktop, Laptop) waiting for each device to stablize before moving to the next.
Once you get everything working, turn on your wireless security (WPA not WEP) asap to keep your computers and surfing safe, and to keep intruders off your network.
