I'm trying to connect a pc to a lenovo thinkpad laptop. The laptop uses a local wireless connection (from the hotel next door) and my pc has a cable connection. I connected the two using a patch crossover ethernet cable, but don't know what to do now. Help!!

Try chanching wireless security WPA, WPA2, personal or encryption TKIP or AES. First of all retype the password or tha passphrase for your wireless and make sure thst there are available ips from the router.
I have had this problem on the Lenovo, before. Go to Network Connections, then Advanced, then Advanced Settings ...
Next, use the Adapters and Bindings tab. Look in the Connections window (the first window). Select "Local Area Connection". Push up arrow until this is placed at the top of the list! This makes the network pay attention to the Local Area Connection, first.
Then use the right click on the Network Icon (in Network Connections) to Repair the connection.
If you have a wireless connection, you may temporarily change this to Disabled.
Lenovo also has an "Access Connections" utility, called ACMainGUI.exe. This will do some network diagnostics for you.
It is important to use the correct Network Interface on the Lenovo. Otherwise, the Lenovo will think that you have no Network interface!
